I was working in L.A. at a place called, "Jumbo Jim's" sandwich shop at the end of Western Blvd near the entrance of Griffith park. My shift had just started when some friends showed up in a car headed for Monterey. "C'mon, blow off work," they said, "it'll be a groove, let's go..." No one had tickets, and my boss was tapping his foot inside as he watched us. My rent was over-due and for once in my life i was going to act responsibly.
They left, I stayed; the rest is history! For the sake of some minimum wage gig that i lost a few months later, i missed one of the greatest rock shows in history! In the years since then, i have bailed on more jobs, dates, and serious obligations than i could shake a stick at. In fact, i actually lost the job at Jumbo Jim's because of what would be my first Dead Show up in the park a few months later. The generator was louder than the music, the acid was full of speed, and on the way out i got busted for relieving myself in public; "Lewd and Lascivious Conduct" they called it. With no bail, or fine money, I did five miserable days in Old County Jail, but overall, it was worth it. To be honest, i had gone to see Gracie Slick & the Airplane, but it turned into my first of many, many, Dead Shows, and a job never interfered again!
