ITP V.016 ONLY ONE PER COFFIN: R.I.P. MONTY LEE WILKES (SOUND ENGINEER FIRST AVE VENUE, NIRVANA and THE REPLACEMENTS)
MONTY LEE WILKES engineered sound for PRINCE, THE REPLACEMENTS, FIRST AVE music venue and has tour managed NIRVANA and many other artists.
FROM STAR TRIBUNE (MINNESOTA, U.S.A.):
FROM FIRST AVE:
Rest In Peace, Monty Lee Wilkes.
FROM RIOT FEST:
When [Nirvana] told an angry Wilkes they smashed a TV in a hotel room because they couldn’t get the window open to throw it out, the unimpressed tour manager famously replied, “A real punk-rock band would’ve thrown it through the window.”
