Sonny Stitt, a fine alto player, toured Europe in the second half of the seventies.
Having a heavy alcohol problem and looking "fatigué" he was guarded in Amsterdam before the concert and during intermission by his bass player.
Sonny got angry and shouted: "I don't want no babysitting". The concert was perfect.
