granfallooon had a darn good idea for a topic, so here it is:
I'm sure a lot of us would like to know more about the players and heroes from the Grateful Dead Movie. maybe some info on who they are, where are they now etc. a few folks come to mind: the "chicklets" guy that lip synched US Blues at the edge of the stage, the 2 guys that were discussing royalties for being filmed (in particular the guy that says "there is nothing like a GD concert"), the dancing cowboy/hippie at the start of SugMag and the space cadet that was "just getting my space together" after he "just came from a phone call" among other assorted characters. Just a thought.
If you have any inside knowledge, or questions of your own, post here!
I probably saw that dude in 1981 at Oak Civic Aud. - 12-31-81. It could probably be confirmed. He is very significant in the GD Movie. It must be known who that guy is, but it doesn't really matter, it's just nice to say what a cool character he is. I imagine he was in Bill Graham's employ... I saw him about 7 years later in Oakland Civic Auditorium.
He was just working the exit to the southwest stairs after the third set - I started out with my gear from the coat room, the band had done three sets after all, but he had the skinny and hipped me - don't leave, buddy they're coming back out - huh? another set... really? yeah, and look, he said pointing to the sign, no in's/outs "and it's really cold and rainy outside".
Needless to say I stayed.
To the, "Have your ticket out and ready, guy" - Thank you - you know who you are.
You got me to stick around to see and that Dark Star>Bertha >GoodLovin'.... 4th set.
