brought $100 to get a ticket

brought $100 to get a ticket for this show. while waiting by the gate for my miracle, an older gentleman, who worked for the coliseum, approached me and asked if i wanted to get into the show. sensing another grateful dead moment, i replied "yes", to which he answered, "follow me". so i did. we went around back and next thing i know, i'm on the inside 2 HOURS BEFORE THE DOORS OPENED!!! evidently, i became legend to those who witnessed in the parking lot. dunno 'bout that, but, man what a trip! on a sadder note, while in the parking lot with other pilgrims, i watched a security guard use a "slim jim" to get into numerous vehicles, looking for valuables. what a shame--the law breaking THE LAW; how human is that?

89 new yaers eve show at collosium

any one know anything about the extremely rare father time backstagepass t-shirt from that night?

I was 19 and me and my friend Chris ( who's older brother is Larry LaLonde - lead gituarist for Primus )were invited to work for Bill Graham's "Staff Pro" for the entire show that night as security....... we started off posted at the concourse between the two stadiums... that is until a gigantic crowd stormed the fence across the concourse trying to get into the show.... we were kids and I didn't know what to do... but I knew I wasn't going to listen to this old jerk who was our supervisior yell at us to F*** up them damn hippies. Well that was it me and my friend threw off our gold staff pro jackets and told the old coot you handle it were outa of here. when we made it back over to the main bosses trailer and told our account of why we did,nt have our jackets he vary sagely and with a slight smirk said " that guy had no business working for us with his attitude.... and then he handed us each perhaps the most memorable and valuable item of clothing I've ever owned..... a 1989 new year's eve father time grateful dead back stage pass T-shirt and for the rest of the night we worked back stage escorting VIP's from the limo to the back stage area....... I like the Dead .... but i'm a metal head however my farther is the worlds hugest dead head of all time and when he saw the shirt he flipped out ... but not as much as he flipped out a week later when I sold it for a bag of pot.
