I remember cooking out in the parking lot. I had all kinds of meat on the grill. I had burgers, steaks, chicken, and ribs. For some reason most of the dead heads that walked by me were vegetarians. I couldn't give it away no matter how hard I Tried. I was very disappointed that my friends went in early to see the opening act who I think was sting. Earlier they told me they were all hungry so I put the food on the grill. They left to go inside and I had an entire girl full of food with nobody to eat it. That's okay because I saved it and we ate it the next morning.
1971 was the last time I'd seen them, until this show, 22 years later. The weather was perfect and the music was excellent. Glad I went.
So I learned from the mistakes I made at the concert the prior year. I made it in and it was a great concert. I don't remember much of it because I was pretty buzzed and it was almost 20 years ago. But I'm listening to a copy of the show that I have on iTunes, and I must have really enjoyed the music because they sound great! :) I do remember the weather was great.
This will always be one of my favorite all-time concerts ever. Sting and the Grateful Dead right here in Central Ohio, and I don't know HOW they did it, but this was the day I graduated from The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium. Graduating and then having dinner with the folks, and on the way out of the restaurant, mom hands me two bottles of Dom Perignon and a couple champagne flutes, then the girlfriend and I were OFF to Buckeye for a night with Phil droppin bombs and the boys rockin it and Sting and 200,000 of my closest friends.
The Grateful Dead were a HUGE part of my unusually long college education, teaching me to care, teaching me what ecology is, teaching me what music and community can be in symbiosis. They taught me how to do mail order, how to drive a VW, how to deal with the police, how to be a good neighbor, how to eat whole foods, how to party responsibly, how to tread lightly. They taught me how to be a capitalist, how to be a communist, how to dance, how to jam, and how to get to the next show. SO many of my lifelong friends I met through the Dead.
They taught me what REAL love is, and they taught me to open my mind. Of COURSE they played my graduation party. ;-]
My dear, sweet, God, THANK YOU for giving me this moment and this memory. And a especially for the sweet matrix as archive.org.
Sting opened. Fun show, fuzzy for me too
