Really?

Timing a bathroom break to Dark Star? Really? Really? No, you are just being sarcastic, right?

I have to agree with Dark Star

If i had a call of nature I would go to the bathroom when they started Dark Star because it was so long, they still would be playing it when I got back.

Brooklyn Peach-> You hit me

Brooklyn Peach-> You hit me in the gut! China Doll...aw. No matter how bad I had to pee, I may have stayed and suffered the consequences if it was between heading to the restroom or hearing a China Doll. Black Peter, I'll grant you, though the last two verses always redeemed that one for me, closing solo or not.

But China Doll...a tear is shed..which I guess is good cause that means even more water!

Ship of Fools? I love that

Ship of Fools? I love that song! Maybe it was the mention of all that water...anyway,for me a good break from dancing song would be China Doll, another slow one. I could see Black Peter being a good choice, too.

A seasoned micro brew aficionado might have known that 90 Shilling hadn't been invented yet!

On 7/8/78, the house beer at Redrocks was likely Colorado kool-aid from Clear Creek.

ratsnkats-> Don't blame the

ratsnkats-> Don't blame the dude. He was listening to Ship of Fools at the time- that song will mess with you in more ways than you know. It can slow time waaaaaay down!

And let's be honest, when I use the right kind of party favors, I remember what the back of the person's head in front of me looked like. Images like that get etched in your brain!

If you can remember what kind of beer

that you drank at Red Rocks in 1978 you were using the wrong type of party favors. And that it got warm too?!? Come on Mannnnnnnnn.

Oh my.......

Then again, I probably would have drank the beer before it could GET warm.....inducing a requirement for even MORE facilities utilization....

It was later...than I thought...

when I first believed you...

I remember my 90 Shillings beer got warm before the song was over at Redrocks in 1978.
