Odd pairing of acts

Greg Kihn getting on stage to open up and his first words "Anyone out there on psychedelics?" set a tone for the day. Charlie Daniels followed with a new song called "Devil went down to Georgia" from an album released 4 days later made it interesting.

The Dead were good that day, Donna sang well, Jerry played tremendously and the monster sound system was worth the drive from Chico. I was a huge Lowell George fan so I liked the Shakedown era quite a bit.

The rain was fun, it was a day to remember.

Donna sang so well that she

Donna sang so well that she wasn't even there! (Donna & Keith left the band a month before the Spartan Stadium gig)

When I lived in San Jose

Second time seeing Charlie Daniels and Greg Kihn. It was getting cloudy and one of them told the crowd that the Dead had assured him that they had never been rained out. It started sprinkling during "Looks Like Rain".

I used to wear a Buck knife on my belt and it wasn't until I was in line that I realized that I still had it on. I quickly took it off and stuffed it down the front of my pants. When I got patted down, the guy felt it and said, "what's that?". I gave him a disgruntled look and he said, "forget it". I can't imagine what he was thinking.
