Hollywood Bowl 1974

This was one of those rare shows that I got a picture from. I had smuggled a giant Mexican skyrocket into the show and waited until the break. Even though I was blazing heavily I had the presence of mind to seperate the rocket from the stick before I went in. It went off without a hitch and exploded right over the stage. Everybody that had brought something lit up there fireworks and the place went batshit crazy. Commander Cody and Maria Muldar were playing too, it was the best. I can't remember all the shows I've been to so my list isn't very accurate but suffice it to say they were all "the best".

I was there, too

That's a great shot!

It was a hell of a day. Here are some of my photos:

Rob Bertrando's audience recording is fine, but I wonder what ever became of the soundboard reels - or if they even exist.
