Derek shows us the money

During a Milwaukee concert, Derek was wearing that now-famous jumpsuit with the Union Jack on it, but he had money pinned to the sleeves- don't recall for sure if it was pounds or dollars, but I'm remembering dollars. Then when they started "I'm Turning Around", he tore off one of the bills and began singing to it, "where's the love that you once promised?" The audience got a big chuckle out of it, but in light of lack of commercial success being one of the factors in the band's eventual demise, it was more black humor than anything in retrospect.
