Chasing the Star

#8348 3 years ago
Hopped on the bus in '91. Granted, being in Florida I only got to see a few shows each year-saw a few local, drove a several hundred miles for a few more. Rat Dog and Phil's bands gave me several more shows. Still, Dark Star escapes me. Not one yet. I've been off by a day (such as last night). But never been graced with the supreme awesomeness that is Dark Star.

Any others out there still searching for that Star?

Maybe it is to be. The sum of all the great Stars on tape and cd playing in my mind will never beat the one that I finally witness face to face. I doubt it though...one day I and the others Star deprived souls will get their baptismal juice. But for now I wait in anticipation for the next beautiful note that this band brings...

Ironic in light of my login I know but the Scarlet > Fire keeps evading me. The 9/4/91 version was the first show I got on tape and was life-changing for me and I STILL haven't seen a Scarlet > Fire. Shout out to Jim Barrow from Cleveland for getting me started with 9/4/91 and taping in general )))) I don't know where you are brother but THANK YOU.

That too has escaped me. I think it is when we stop anticipating the Star or S>F that they will drop on us.

First off, was just down near Cocoa Beach a week ago to visit the better half's parents.. Melbourne to be exact. Nice place, but too freaking hot for me.

Dark Star is pretty common these days, so hang in there. Or move to NYC and you'll get it within three months.... Kidding on that last part. Sort of.

You could always make a banner like these folks did..

I chatted with one of them in deadnet a few years back about this and they told me that at the NYE show when the band broke out DS they took down the banner and danced on top of it

For years, you would see their huge banner at SF-Oakland shows along with the ever present "Please come to Japan" giant banner
