A Louie Louie Call

While working at a bar a buddy of mine asked my why I kept going to see the Dead. My response was you never know what they are going to play. He askeld me if they were going to play Louie Louie since they were in Louisville. I told him ya never know...when they opened the second set with it I lost it and he could not believe they actually play it.
Still Dead after all these years!

The drum stick incedent

Say I wasn't so lucky for this one some how "me and my uncle" ended up seated behind the the stage as I remember while they were playing foolish heart Mickey broke the end off one of his drum sticks,as a result it flew over the cymbal or bounced off it and hit good old Jerry in the back of the head :-)
After the song was over he turned around and shook his finger at Mickey,I'm sure this is where it happened as I was only able to see them indoors 3 times in my life twice in Chicago in 1987.
We had a perfect view of the back stage area and Phil actually spoke to us (after all we caught him smoking something?)

A show before work

This was part 2 of my 30th birthday present. Drove down from Cincy. I can still remember them doing Knockin on Heaven's Door. I worked 3rd shift, so I had to haul ass back to Cincy after the show and put in 8 hours testing electronic modules, 1 every 30 seconds. When I finally got to sleep Monday morning, I had been up since Saturday morning. I got sicker than a dog. Worth it though. Definitely worth it.

89 sucked but

I got to see two great shows on back to back nights. I was senior at OSU and I majored in skipping classes to see shows my entire college career.. so after a phenomenal Saturday show in Cincy I followed it up with the Kentucky show on Sunday and needed almost 3 days to recover. These were the only two shows I caught in '89.

re: First Show

17 years as all get out! My car had broken down and my mom offered to drive me and my friend 6+ hours from Northeast Tennessee to see this show. She dropped us off at the venue about 2 in the afternoon. We met a couple of very nice guys from Florida who mentored us through the day. The little unicorns on very wet paper were insane. After the Other One, I told my friend that I felt like the bus kinda ran me over. Nevertheless, I held on for dear life and have been on the bus ever since. A great day, that I'll never forget!
