Sorry, I'm not having a steak in your honor. That
stuffs bad for ya.
Anyone ever get to meet him? I did once. I was with my
sister and her husband at a show in '84. My sister had a
necklace on that was my bro in laws Grandma's wedding ring
melted down. Owsley walked right up to her, without saying
anything and grabbed the hunk of metal on the chain and began
Inspecting it. My bro in law was like "uh excuse me..."
but then I noticed Bear on his tour laminate and told bro in law
that it's ok. Someone else came up and wanted to take
his picture but he said no. He was selling jewelry on that tour,
so that's what was on his mind.
A friend of mine from Marin claims he used to work out at
the same facility as Owsley and got to know him a bit. My
friend felt comfortable enough to ask him for a little sample,
and Owsley said yes under the condition he ingest it
then and there.
Anyway, thanks for all your contributions Bear!
Yes I met him
Happy Birthday Bear
We miss you
Well, Do tell of your encounter (if you wish). I'm sure he was happy to have met your acquaintance.
I remember that my stepson JD had a backstage pass forvhelping Curley with a float
It was cold
I was wearing a red riding hood the Jasper had sewn for one of my burlesque acts, the Little Red Riding Hood number
I was all wrapped up in red head to toe as we entered
A security guard stopped me and asked " are you wearing anything under that?"
I said"well of course I am!"
He said "Show me"
As the red cape parted from the middle like scarlet wings spreading for flight
Not only could everyone see I was fully clothed, but now I had caught Bears eye from the Greenpeace table nearby
He seemed amused by this comic scene
Jasper noticed this too and asked me "would you like to meet him?"
I was suddenly shy and I said "no, not now"
Jasper said " Yes, Now, dont worry he is my friend"
We walked up towards Bear
He stood behind the Greenpeace table
He shook hands with Jasper and said to him "What did you do to deserve such a beautiful woman?"
Bear took my right hand
He brought it to his lips
And kissed it
