I wonder what Herb means when he says that Bill Evans was "stoned" on arrival in Hamburg? The word is usually to and excess of alcohol.
But Bill never touched alcohol. The word "exhausted" was certainly appropriate. Bill's battle with hepatitis frequently left him with little energy and sorely debilitated. But rarely did Bill allow his poor physical health to effect is remarkable ability as a musician.
