What a brilliant way to put it. I had been thinking along the same lines, but  this is a classic. True of so many 60's and 70's bands where the drummer's second cousin had a coffee one night with the aunt of one of the roadies :)

Reminds me of the old Mark Radcliffe anecdote.

 

He once met someone who had been in a latter day line-up of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich: "I naturally enquired, 'So, which one were you then?' to which he replied 'Dunno.  I never asked.'  He later admitted that he was pretty sure he wasn't Dave Dee."
