New Riders of the Purple Sage at Mickey's Ranch, Novato, CA.
The Dead finished playing at about 5AM at Stonybrook on the morning of 11-1-70.It got light a short time after the show.I guess the two bands could have made it to the Airport soon after and landed in S.F. by noon or so.No big deal, just wondering.I will have to do a write up about the two shows from 10-31-70.Holy Halloween Batman!,what a night. Love,Strider
was Mickey still the drummer that late? Bob
The shawl / poncho / cape era of eccentric rock musician wear appears to be at high tide here. Whew. And whats the guy on the right (Torbert?) got on? Yikes..... And yeah, the date has got to be wrong......
This photo was probably taken in September 1970 during the American Beauty sessions.
I believe Mickey drummed for NRPS through 1970, if memory serves me right. He's on their 1st album & yes, it was during the American Beauty/Workingman's Dead era.......xoxo Gypsy Cowgirl
