Was there

What a numbskull ! Was taping the show : good equipment, decent position .... but used 1 tape for both sets ... hence lost all of set 1 which was the better of the two. Remember throwing the 2nd tape into the machine and ... blank ! what ... "it's gotta be there" ... well nope. Oh well, shit happens.

You always remember your first!

It was a late afternoon on this beautiful September day. I was just chillin', starring out the window of the common area in my dorm. Two girls come into view. We make eye contact, and they walk towards me. "Do you have a car?" One shouts up to me. I tell them I do. "Do you want to go see the Grateful Dead?" was the follow up.
Six of us squeezed into my Mustang, and drove half an hour from school in Mass. to Providence. Scalped floor seats on our way up to the civic center, and walked right in.
I had never seen the Dead. I was into a lot of music. This would be my 31st concert in my 19 years.
Beach Boys, Wings, Chicago, Boston, Peter Frampton, Steve Miller, ELP, Aerosmith, CSN, Yes, Dylan, Moody Blues, J. Geils, Allman Bros., Outlaws, Doobie Bros. Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Who, Jeff Beck, Marshall Tucker, Van Halen and then, THE GRATEFUL DEAD.
I was blown away. It was so true. You haven't lived until you've seen the Dead.
