After two nights of Dead music at the Grande, we loaded up at John Sinclair's Artist workshop and headed for Ann Arbor. The show started off and there was a pretty good crowd, but by the time the Dead was really into it, many many people showed up from the University for what I believe was the first free concert in Ann Arbor.I can't remember all the songs as I was in the groove dancing in front of the stage. After the concert, all the band except Pigpen (who took off to Detriot with my roommate Jerry Yonkins) hung out and socialized with the small crowd and Phil I think cooked up hot dogs in the park for all of us. I remember Billy K. pulling out some flat wheat-straw joints out of his wallet and shared them with all of us. I will always remember how friendly the Dead were with us, joking, eating, smoking, and bull shitting. I remember alot of the girls were just falling all over Bobby.....pretty Bobby. On page 158 of David Gans book "Playing in the Band", there's a picture of me dancing with Lenny Sinclair, who was wearing a floppy hippie hat, with the band playing on the stage behind us. The picture was taken by Tom Copi of Ann Arbor. I've tried to find out how to contact Tom copi, but have never located him yet. Anyone out there know him????
