Engelbert had previously confirmed to story to

“We were all on the same bill, Cat Stevens, Jimi Hendrix, The Walkers, myself,” Engelbert told “Cat came into my dressing room one time and I was having a little taste of something, a little bit of alcohol, and he said ‘can I have one of those’. I said, ‘you are going on stage Cat. Its going to be dangerous’. He used to sing a song where he swung a pistol around. He had this drink and when he went on stage he dropped the pistol on the floor. He couldn’t handle it. I am so proud to have his song on the CD”.
