    Drumminman, those are really cool photos. The after show photos remind me of a local rockfest in 1970. The papers had photos like those that show all the trash the "hippies" left behind. The propoganda mileage from those photos went on and on. The promoters took off, they had purchased the land for the rockfest on a land contract, which they simply abandoned, and the county got stuck with the clean-up cost. Fueled the anti-hippy-counterculture fire for a long time.

    I heard that too. I also heard he was classically trained and his parents didn't want him hanging around a bunch of hippie rock 'n roll musicians

    Of course we had a deluge for a while, and everybody got soaked, the ground turned muddy etc. As we were walking back to our car we passed a couple f##ing in the mud, oblivious to the crowd passing by them.
