22 Years Ago Today

#219620 1 year, 10 months ago
Compton Terrace, Arizona. One of my top 5 favorite shows I attended. One of my favorite GD venues. My first show after Brent's untimely death. Very emotional. Picasso Moon, enough said... Hey Furthur, will you puhlease play this again?? Pretty please??

I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

this one was good, but the next day was the real smoker imho...aside from AZ's zero tolerance policy at the time, that was a great place to see a show...there was a campground nearby that had a great scene

Your comment took me for a loop. I think you're the first person I ever recall siting a post Brent show as one of their top five.

Why Furthur has never done Picasso Moon........beyond me.

Well I said the top 5 I attended Unfortunately I only saw a few shows with Brent and actually now that I think of it I'm not sure I'd put those particular ones in my top 5. Maybe Shoreline 89..

Furthur has played Picasso once ... in Portland in March 2010. I was there and I always say it that show is still one of my all time favorite Furthur shows.

i got some firsthand experience with that zero tolerance policy at the 1992 run...arizona can eat a bowl of poo as far as i'm concerned

Yeah there seemed to be a lot of trouble in the air during that 92 run. We ran into our own issues there.

Sure you were there for Jerry's return at McNichol's in '92. Hadn't been to a show in over a year and encountered some weirdness
for sure. Enjoyed Same Thing and Rain. First time I ever sold an extra to someone and they tried the ol' 'lighter trick' to see if it was counterfeit. I was like WTF?

But, back to happier times. And speaking of McNichol's and '90....two solid shows. Hope you don't mind jumping ahead a few days

Uh huh! We got burned so to speak by the old lighter trick ... we bought fake tickets from the thugs in the Oakland lot. They sure looked real but we should have known gang bangers would be ripping us off. Young and certainly dumb! I guess we should be thankful we didn't get robbed at gun point.

I really regret allowing Brent's death to affect me so much. I missed most of the great Hornsby run because of it, and I missed a lot of great PL&F shows as well because of the general malaise that had taken hold by that time.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?
