This was my dad's first show. So cool! He's a big fan of Grateful Dead!
Great memory to start the day with,
to be sure!
Fell asleep in the sun and got a
sun burn on half of my face.
I looked freaky until I took some
lipstick and colored in the other
half of my face.
But I still looked freaky for sure.
I left red lipstick on everyone as
hugs were given...Ha!
All I remember was crossing the border to go up the needle thing and check out the view. We were already tripping when we crossed the border. Border guard asks me "can you speak english" A: yes; "can you read english" A:yes "Then why the F__did't you stop at the white line (who knew there was a white line?!). My friend had his guitar in the back seat. The guard asks "Are you going to play that guitar in Canada?" It was all we could do to hold it together. He proceeded to threaten to take our guitar. Apparently, Panhandling is illegal in Canada. We convinced him we were not going to play the guitar and he let us go....another close one.
I mean, gracious, it was July! I knew Buffalo was cold, but that was absurd. I also remember thinking, as I did in Akron, that Dylan wasn't all that inspired...EXCEPT...for whatever reason, he did a great solo version of "Hard Rain" that certainly the best thing he and probably anybody played that day. He was really inspired for that five minutes. If you've seen Bob in the last twenty years, you've probably seen a good show, but he was really spotty in those days.
Grateful Dead 7-4-86 Rich Stadium Orchard Park NY "on you tube" not techy enough to copy paste address Two shows later Jerry was sick and shortly after slipped into the coma. He looks pretty good on the 4th here in Buffalo. Happy and full of energy.
sON OF A BITCH DROVE THE 9.5 HOURS TO THE VENUE WITHOUT A LICENSE! ANotehr classic summer show! Even Lester was present!
My biggest memory occurred when Petty started to play after the Dead. This skinny deadhead, in full panic mode, scaled a very imposing chain-link fence in a matter of seconds. He just couldn't get out of there fast enough. I'm sure it was the fastest this kid ever moved in his life. I'll never forget the look in his eye. It was the same look I saw when I side-swiped a deer. Poor creature. One minute you're running free through the woods and the next Bam! Right out of nowhere!
