If you ever get the chance

The opening act for the second time I saw Ronnie Montrose was a band called PoDunk (sp?). They went all over the place with wonderful sounds. If you ever get the chance to catch them, expect to have you mind blown.

Another cool act you should see when possible is WireTrain. They opened for Dylan and were out of this world. .

Triple bill was the Allman Bros, Littlefeat, and the Radiators at the old Poplar Creek outdoor theater in 1990, one of the last shows I saw at this fine venue.

Love the Prine

Love the Prine as well. Have seen him a number of times. His voice has deteriorated since he got cancer, but the songs are still great.

Prine had a 3 piece not 4 piece band. I made up the drummer......

John Prine

I recently saw John Prine, one of our greatest living songwriters. He played for hours and had a tight 4 piece band. Wonderful show. Don't miss this man.

Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush

I went to see the show at the Sunken Gardens Theatre in San Antonio, Texas back in 1985. That was my first psychedelic show and I have been in line with that ever since. Ronnie Montrose opened up and the feeling from each show was out of this world. I guess you could say that was one of the defining moments that put the acid spin on life and really opened up a new world. I have never taken acid, but people who have and read my poetry or seen my drawings are sure I did and just forgot LOL. Santana and Eric Johnson on stage at the same time comes pretty close. They were at the Sunken Gardens as well.

Love ya, Uncle DeadHead.
