If the thunder don't get you, the lightning will!!
Took two very old friends, who were not DH, but were interested, instead of completing the tour with my wife.
When we got up to the gates, i walked thru the myriad of sheriff's and state patrol officers just as Bruce was finishing up his set....after being frisked and walking about halfway, i turned and realized my buddies were no where to be seen. I walked right up to the stage where i knew jer would be standing and kept that space during the show.
Afterwards, it took me nearly 2 hours to find the still locked car, where i reunited with my buddies, who it turned out FREAKED at the police entourage at the gate and did not even come into the show! They stood by the car for hours waiting for the show to end for me to return.
To make matters even more interesting, my wife of 18 years, who was to meet me frontstage never showed, and spent the show with a new beau. We separated that day never to reunite.
Undeterred, I took the 2 tics on to Pittsburgh the next day and made her ticket a miracle for an unknown DH.
Btw, just saw Phil and Friends here in Cols (2008) and my ex and her 'beau' from 88 were dancing in front of me all night long.
20 years later and it's still ALL GOOD
I din't bother to introduce myself. heheh
Security was such a drag, after coming from laid back Alpine. The shows were medicore at best. The highlight definately was the accordian by Hornsby on Box. That was sweet.
Ahh what a show...a good time was had by all. In my limited experience at Dead shows, I was always impressed by how cool the people were, everyone just doing his/her thing and getting into the music and vibe.
Went to this place for rock shows in high school and college this was a great place to see the boys. We took out young son-he had a riot. I was bare-foot all day. My wife sprayed the police with her spray-bottle. I thought we were going to jail. 5 shows in 7 days we saw 6 record high temperatures. My favorite Sugaree of all-time.
Where r u brother? I hope ur safe and well!
My young bro and his college buddies came to visit and go to a Dead show. We're ouside and hear this band (Hornsby) start 2 play, thinking it sounds good, little did we know what collaboration was to come from that night. Anyway, we stumble inside and my bros buds are being real secretive, I need to tell them I'll smoke what you have and take what we need, tell my brother to shut it! Anyway, if you were there, do you recall coming out of the "cattle chute" and goat boy was standing on the tree stump flexing? OK, maybe it was just me.........what a glorious night, BH became my 2nd fave!! Damn it was hot that night, We ended it at a White Castle, then parked in my backyard (no, I don't know why?) watching the sunrise!
"there really isn't far to go"
went to buckeye a few more times after this show. the parking lot/field was an event in itself. we scored all the party supplies before we parked the car. if you coundn't find it...you didn't need it. HOT weather and lots of energy. EVERYONE was cool. real good time.
Next time bring the fence cutters and night vision.
This venue was designed by throwing a stage at the bottom of a sandy dustbowl of a hill and surrounding it with 8 foot chain link fence. Where's the lake? Well maybe if we got here sooner we could see it.
All of the security, ushers etc split during the pause before the encore. Completely "In the Dark" too
Our tapes sounded better than my ears did. Tullys D6 patch'd into Nak 300's.
It was the summer after I graduated High School and I was working at the hotel in Dublin Ohio where Bruce Hornsby and his crew were staying. I made friends with some of the crew and was given backstage passes to the buckeye lake show... I had never been to a Dead concert and had no clue what to expect. I invited one of my best friends Lolly to come with me. When we got to "will call" we had backstage passes all access waiting for us. What an amazing night! We got to hang out on the stage and in the tour buses. Maybe some of you that sent remember my friend and I. We sure did stand out in the crowd! We came in tiny tight mini dresses and sky high heels!! We stood on the stage to the side dancing and jammin to Bruce Hornsby and to the Dead... We were lucky enough to get to go to the concert in Cincinnati ( all access) as well. That one we even got to hang out before the show and eat with the band and crew backstage. What an amazing experience! And all the guys on the crew and in the band were sweet and super nice!! Thanks for the memories!! And a special thanks to Michael Kaye from Virgin Records for one if the best times of my life!!
Midway through the first set I got really weak and started getting scared, some girl offered me a french fry and I felt way better, ate a bunch more and back to normal. If you're out there, thanks!
Also met a really good friend, Sue Z, during Terrapin..INSPIRATION!! Sue if you're out there I hope you're doing really well.
