Monday Morning Music: Focus, “Hocus Pocus”

Remember when I said King Crimson’s Jamie Muir is the most wonderfully eccentric person you’re likely to see in music? Meet his toughest competitor in that category, Focus keyboardist/flautist/yodeler/whistler Thijs van Leer in his early ’70s glory.

The song worked its way into a terrific Nike ad with Wayne Rooney, prompting van Leer to wax nostalgic in this terrific interview. If anyone finds an interview with Muir, please let me know.
