First Road Trip

This was my first road trip. I had 2 tickets and couldn't find anyone to go with me. I was going to drive up from Cincy, but my wife (same one that dragged me out of the Seattle show in 79 and made me take her to Manilow in 85) heard on the radio that there were storms along Lake Erie and she booked me a flight and got me a rental car.Got up closer to the stage than I've ever been. I had a skull mask that I wore as the band came out. Jerry scanned the crowd, locked eyes with me, stared for a minute, said something to Bobby, and then shook his head. At least that's how I remember it.. Loved Bertha.

my first show

Awesome memories from that. I'm sorry to whomever's recording equipment I ran into on the field. Thanks for catching me.

I remember...

The 2 Genesee beer trucks parked on the 1st & 3rd base lines both having their cab roof caved in by the Heads dancing on top.

Spent a little time down on the field and the sound was the loudest I ever heard that day.

Beer trucks

It was very cool to have the genny beer trucks there for the ready. Good show, especially the rain.

Got there late

Haven't given it a listen but will do so based on other's observations. I remember being happy to get in for the Cassidy & Deal. This was the first show where I felt there were just too many people in the venue - even as I'd been at Rich Stadium amost a year to the day before, my largest show ever, with about 90,000 other people.

How did this scene ever get so big? Would have been great if it hadn't grown out of hand.
