Dwarf Rat wrote:Hollywood Bowl 1972
Our first Dead show. We took the Greyhound to LA where my cousin Cory picked us up.
She decided to cruise by the Whiskey A GoGo to see who was playing: The Mahavishnu Orchestra.
We found the money for tix and went right up to the stage.
Next afternoon we headed out for the Bowl while I rolled joints in the back seat. We had a good buzz when we went in the gate. Our tickets had us I the absolutely very last row of the Bowl. No one was behind us, only the Hollywood hills.
We started smoking joints while the New Riders did their thing. After they were done, the Dead started to tune up. Phil hit harmonics on his bass. I could see them coming. My goose bumps had goosebumps. When he played the riff into The Other One and hit the chord, I came in my pants.
It was Pig's last show, and all my dreams came true. I was a virgin no more.
