Black Peter and Desolation row are two of my favorites and I have a lot of favorites...Drums was always a good time to roll and pee for me not necessarily in that order. A couple of others would be Eternity & Corrina. If Mickey was singing rap songs back then, it would have been a good time to take care of some busy work. It would always be a contest to see how quick you could pee, get a brew and get back so you didn't miss the next song which had a 99.9% chance of being another one of my favorites. And how did you always avoid not losing your friends during the show? We would always meet on Jerrys side.
a water bottle works great, then you miss nothing!
Sorry people, I love Bob Dylan but that song was BORING and longer than a Russian novel. Space was equally unbearable, unlike Drumz which I could always groove to (I especially loved it when Mickey started going at the beam).
A good time to go
Without love in a dream it will never come true. . .
..or the crime. I couldn't STAND that song. Still can't. Someone mentioned Wave to the Wind. I had forgotten all about that tune. Only saw it once live and stayed for it.
Honorable mention goes to:
Way to Go Home
And then there is I Will Take You Home, which usually came out of space. I usually planned a bathroom break during space. IWTYH just made the break a little longer.
"Mama, mama many worlds have come since I first
He's Gone was a perfect "break" song for me to regroup,recharge and refill the water jug for the upcoming next killer power chord jam. Im sure this will offend many.....get over it.
i made more pit stops during drumz than any other time in a show. but there was one, at the omni in atlanta, late 80's/early 90's where i sat in my seat through the drum portion, and when mickey and billy got up to leave, they frickin' hugged each other. the jam was just that special, and i'm glad my bladder allowed me the moment.
it happened all the time w/my car of idiots
"Oh man that Long Way To Go Home ROCKED!"
“The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”
I have to say that Space was my time to take a wander about. Not always to pee but to check the goings on in the venue and whatever other trouble there was.
I'll have to also admit that Stella Blue, and very slow FOTD I couldn't hang.
But everyone has to go sometime and in my group there wasn't one song I could remember them getting up for.
When the band would Row, I would go. Same with Stella Blaa.
