wasn't there a gig at winterland where mickey returned.. believe the rowan bros were on bill?
The last night of the October 1974 run at Winterland was his return after the 3 year or so absence.
Yes It was a Sunday night show at Winterland; always a good night esp if ya didn't have to work the next day. Mushrooms and Chateau de Qyem ( -5 spelling).
Yo this night it all came together just ask Rob B. He was there and for all intensive purposes he still is.

I was there that night...just a 19 year old kid standing in the 2nd row. I'll never forget that night. I took several pictures on Sat and Sunday night with my kodak slr camera. I'm greyer now and will be at Shoreline to see the boys.
Am I just worrying to much or will there be more tics avail for shorline at a later date. I got shut out this morn :( Which date cause the dead site said gen public tics go on sale on 1-23. The shoreline site says the 25th. Anybody clear this up wit me?
My first show at 15 (Winterland 1968)… We really had no idea who the Dead were other than a name. The Vanilla Fudge were at the Fillmore and we were unable to get tickets. We had an extra ticket for the Dead as one of our partners caught the flu. As we circled Winterland to park we saw the line was well around the hall. My buddy and I were about to head home rather than wait in the massive line. I said park it I got an idea. So he did and I kept the idea to myself, as to avoid his disruption of its execution. We stood near the corner entrance and I began to look around. Finding a man panhandling I asked in a rather load voice are you trying to get enough for a ticket. The man responded in equal pitch no man for food I need money to eat. I responded I can’t help you with that but if you need a ticket I have a free one for you. He said FREE! I said yes and you can sit where you want enjoy. He left the area telling many what had just happened. I turned and asked the people in line if we could cut in. They confirmed we gave the man a free ticket and with that allowed us to cut in just around the corner from the door. This was my first concert of any kind, what a great show…
Need two tickets now, wonder if Karma really works... Hate to spend those prices for seats far from the action.
As I recall, Hot Tuna opened and played from 10-12 that night. They were Great!. Didn't think I could get them out of my mind. 30 minutes after they were done, I had little remembrance of HT, once The Dead began to take off. They played til 5am. No real breaks...just some tunings. Feel incredibly fortunate to have been part of it.
Sorry, I was talking about NYEve 70-71.
I was 19 years old and hitchhiked from Berkeley to San Fran and got a ticket outside each nite for these shows. :)
