Phil at the Hollywood Bowl 7/21/74
First mistake: playing with the wind with the window rolled down using our tickets as we drove up towards the Hollywood Bowl. The tickets slipped out of my hand and we slammed on the breaks to jump out of the car to go after them. We had box seats! Seventh row. My buddy Mark and I were tossed out of this show for getting out of our box seats to move our butts up front. Bouncers warned everyone to take our seats. Second mistake: We didn't... and soon enuf I was being shown the door with Mark right behind me. Thankfully, someone from my high school was a ticket taker and let us back in when we showed him our stubs and told him our tale.
Hilarious Tale! I've had a few unfortunate but lucky events myself. This photo of Phil is great!!Phil with facial hair, not the norm. But when are we ever normal???
Love and Light!!!

When I saw them in '74, Garcia was clean shaven and when I looked at him, I thought that he looked like a chubby Dustin Hoffman. (And he was wearing a Mars Hotel sweatshirt.) And then there was Phil with a full beard. It was weird. Loved the wall of sound. The band looked so tiny in front of that monolith of a sound system. Crystal clear, clean, and LOUD!
Yes, normal is a city in Illinois, and I have been in left field for so long I have a tent pitched there. And I like that about me. Normal, nope.
Take care, tim
