Palm Gardens - December 24, 1967
December 24, 1967
My kroo was guests of the Group Image...I remember there being a fire in out tenement in the East Village, and we almost didn't go anywhere at all. It was sparsely attend. Pigpen saw nobody on the floor, so he growled get up & dance, it won't ruin ya!
I was still a withdrawn college dropout, but when I saw nobody from our group take the lead, AFTER ALL! We were house guests...I got up and shagged to the center of the floor. closed my eyes & began what would be my 'patented shoulder roll' by the time I was a Stage guest in the Taft auditorium in Cincinnatti, OH 11/30/1971.
When I opened my eyes, I was surrounded by people who had followed me onto the floor...I wonder whether the bass player noticed something familiar in my shoulder rolling...eventually up close... Twas the night before XMass
Life is too serious to take TOO seriously
