First Dead show by myself

I hitched from Ct. to Stony Brook.Got there early afternoon. Went to the commons.Charlie O had an early boom box and was playing a tape from the night before. The first Dead bootleg I remember. NRPS on a roll. I painted my face for the night of the Dead. Then outside the Gym between shows. Next Slide please.

I was on the university

I was on the university basketball team and worked security ;- ) for these shows on Saturday night.. Dosed via a bottle of wine (from a team mate) and the rest is history.

A remembrance from the weekend was the thousands of heads who crashed the university that weekend- sleeping in the lounges, on the floors.

Nothing's been the same since. ;- )

my birthday

I lived 2 miles from SUNY at Stony Brook, back then. And, Halloween is my birthday. So, with a couple of good friends, we celebrated.
The concerts were held in the gym, which had the acoustics you'd expect, but the Dead still sounded great.
In spite of its deficiencies, a lot of good people played there: Janis Joplin, James Taylor, Tim Hardin, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Miriam Makeba, Pink Floyd, the Who, etc.
