4/23/95 Atlanta, GA Lakewood Amp.

It was a free show for me and two of my good friends...we were in high school, low on money, the lawn was sold out so we listened to the first few songs from outside the wall of the lawn until the sun went down, once it did we scaled the wall, dropped in, and made a mad dash for the safety of the crowd before security saw us. Sorry Brothers. That said though, if my calulations are correct, my next show will be my 40th ABB concert to coincide with their 40th anniversary, which I think is pretty ironic and cool, and I have paid for every concert since the first!

Best I've been able to determine (terrible with dates) my first ABB show was August 1970 on Pensacola Beach. A Sunday afternoon all-ages show with all of about 20 people in the audience.

I wish I had my ticket stubs from sooo long ago...I'm always foggy on this. Either 9-25/26-73 or 1-1-74.. I know I was at 2 of the 3 shows. I know I recall Charlie Daniels from the September shows...and I definitely remember Elvin Bishop form the New Year's night show at the Cow Palace...

I remember Gregg mumbling at the Cow Palace ... "We're gonna boogie 'til the cows come home"...2 songs later, he was backstage.

Well ... if you can tell me what city I saw Rory Gallagher in you'll be one up on me. I only remember being close to the stage and thinking that his guitar must have been in a fire (it wasn't) because the varnish was flaking off as he played. Whatever I was doing that night, it must have been good! I also saw Labelle and can only remember the shiny armored costumes they wore. The mid to late 70's are a bit of a blur. OK, up to the late 80's too.

October 18, 1975...UC Santa Barbara campus stadium.

Also on the bill, Dave Mason Band & Little Feat.

Don't remember the set list...but, I DO remember they played everything I was thinking that I wanted to hear as I was walking into the stadium. And, I can still see Dickey standing at the edge of the stage, eyes closed, lost in his solo on "Liz", with the sun reflecting off his goldtop Les Paul. They FAR exceeded my expectations that day (well, and EVERY time I saw them after that)

Little Feat was on FIRE that day...poor Dave Mason had to follow them...and, he did a great job, but Little Feat was a tough act to follow on that day. I saw both Dave Mason & Little Feat (with Dave Mason as the headliner and Fleetwood Mac as the middle act of the 3 act billing) at the GW Forum just a few weeks later...Fleetwood Mac had the unenviable task of following Little Feat that night.)

6/20/92 World Music Theater - Burbs of Chitown....

What a great show...two things stick out from that night. 1) How great Blue Sky was - people dancing in the aisle, perfect vibe for the night. Simply Awesome...made me a fan right there. 2) How good Warren Haynes was. He was really good in 92. Now he's just scary good. What great memories...

ummm ... the question was 'when' not 'how much do you remember' (no way could I recite set lists for all of the shows I've attended over the years)

--------------------

"Blue Sky" was in it's infancy that nite in Sept. of '71. Pretty sure it was one of the first 2 or 3 times it was ever played here in Dayton back then. It's on the SUNY CD from the next nite 9/19. One of the memories that a few others have confirmed over the years is Dickey getting quite a shock--and a 'pop/bang' thru the P.A.--when he stepped up to sing that song that nite. Duane also had on the checkered 'madras' shirt. One of my oldest friends--now lives in Arizona--has 3 or 4 pictures of the nite taken with an old instamatic camera....he knows they're in his house but can't find them. I know they played over 4 hours let alone Wet Willie's set because my friends Dad was freakin' out that we didn't come out of the show until well past 1AM....we were 15 years old. I also believe there is a picture of a poster from that nite somewhere in this website/'Gallery' .....it has Wet Willie mispelled as "Wet Willy"....

Needless to say, that nite changed my life!

June 9, 1973 at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. It was Wet Willie, the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. There were some white barrels being handed around (if you know what a barrel is you're at least as old as me) and I really don't remember much except for how damn hot it was and laughing my ass off for hours. This was more memorable for me as my first Grateful Dead show because I saw them 200 more times over the next 22 years.

Never had such a good time
In my life before
I'd like to have it one time more
One good ride from start to end
I'd like to take that ride again
