Thanks for bumping this. I hadn't seen this one yet. So amazing.
Chinacat is the coolest person. I would love to sit down with him on a porch on a sunny day and just listen to him talk for hours.

One of the coolest threads I've ever read.

I hope I have some experiences like this..

I await the day I find some LSD man :heart:

Where'd Chinacat go? Sucks that I wasn't he for when he was posting

Pretty much exactly what you said. If I ever got the chance to meet him, I don't think I would say a word. I'd shut up and listen to every single story he could remember. What a guy!

I'm also wondering what he's been up to and if he'll ever come back to post? I hope he's doing alright :heart:

All right you want another hey :smile:

This concert wasn't the best musically for the dead,but it was absolutaly one of the most important I attended. The dead were just finishing up there fall tour in 91 and we were headed for Oakland coliseum. Word spread around Bill Graham died in a helicopter crash. Bill was a legend since he helped promote alot of the concert's of the sixties and seventies .He was the owner of the filmores and was considered an enemy by alot of hippie's because he was greedy. None the less he had a special place in the dead family, Jerry loved him and he no doubt helped the band through alot of hard times. Any way so the Oakland run goes as scedualed. On the last night Ken Kesey comes out during Dark Star :grin: He lay's out this heart felt rap about Bill being there for him whem Ken's son died. Also through in some poetry . There's not a dry eye in the house. This isn't even the special show yet. Thinking we had a couple months off before the winter tour we head home to San Francisco. Like a day or to after the tour we hear the Dead are going to be doing a free concert in Golden Gate Park!!!! I was like no fuckin way. Golden Gate Park is ground zero for the psychedelic movement. In the sixties the Dead and Janis and the Airplane would play free concert's there all the time. More people have gotten turned on in that park than anywhere on earth. Sure enough it was true and not only the Dead were going to be there ,but also Santana and CSNY and a bunch of other San Francisco band's that Bill helped promote. The day came and as I awoke I knew that it would be one of the most special day's of our lives. It wasn't even a question if we were going to dose :grin: Since tour had ended our tolerence was quite high. A thumbprint was in order. As we head down to the park we run into the our fluff friend. He's got 5 grams of crystal and he's dosing every body who want's(and can handle it) for free. I get very very high. Turn's out about a half a million people show up and all the old school family is there. Ken kesey, Chet Helm's and everybody from the sixties that's still alive. Leary is there with his groupies. The energy is incredible. Here I am with the people from the original movement in the original place with the original music :grin: I won't try to describe the rest of the show since it wouldn't do it justice. Afterward's we decide to walk to the ocean through the park like we read they did at the Be-in in 67. We wern't the only ones with this idea, as lots of people headed that way. As I walked through the park It really hit me. Like a Muslim who visit's Mecca or a Buddhist who visit's Bohdi or a christain who visit's Jerusalem, I was now in the holy land. Everywhere i looked I saw the original pure energy that was the summer of love. I nelt down and cried and so did my friends. I sobed tear's of pure joy as I realized how privaleged I was to be there.
For that day we were allowed to go back and feel that powerful pure energy that was there at the begining of the revolution. That energy was at every Dead show But that day it was alot more powerful .That day is imbedded in my heart forever.
:grin: 




Just thinking about this energy gives me goosebumps. Damn, how I wish I could come anything close to this, close to feeling in such a... idk, sacred moment.

(and sorry for the bump, folks. last one. this is just great)
