Looked like serious rain on the Wall of Sound and as Bobby broke into Know You Rider, and sang "Sun is gonna shine" it did! Big group of us from Telluride that day and it was truly memorable...
What I remember best from this date is something that happened before the band took the stage. The young lady I was with was a photographer. She went backstage to Garcia’s trailer, where clean-shaven Jerry was sitting on the sofa, wordlessly noodling away on his guitar. The room was host to various people who came and went, carrying on conversations with Steve Parish, Garcia’s assistant. Garcia never said a word the whole time- He just sat there and picked, seeming to take it all in without need to verbalize.
My friend began to take some pictures of Jerry. When the first flash went off, Parish darted over to her and said, “No flash, please!”, and returned to his dialogue. One of the other visitors had his attention, so after a couple of minutes she could not resist- she snapped another.
Immediately he whirled around and bellowed “HEY! I TOLD you not to use that thing! It hurts his eyes.”
Puzzled, she glanced over to Garcia, who seemed to have taken no notice whatsoever.
“Well, if it hurts his eyes, why doesn’t he say something?”
Parish leaned down close to her face and half-whispered:
“He doesn’t know.”
Feyline Field was later named Tempe Diablo baseball stadium which is currently the the Angels spring training ball park, This time around the stage was set up in center field. It rained very lighly on & off that day but the vibe was great with spirits high. We all got there early & walked around. Bill Graham walked out toward second base. I walked over to say hello but he seems so lost in his own thoughts I didn't have the never to say a word just nodded.
