From the book:

Owsley, known by most then and now as Bear was an interesting fellow. He was a few years older than the guys in the band-he and Kesey were the same age-and like Kesey, he had grown up in a very straight world.

About the first Acid Trip at Muir beach:

There was a lot of weird energy in the air that night at Muir Beach. Owsley, for one, was overwhelmed by the totality of the experience-by what he saw as an almost maniacal edge to the pranksters mind warping assault, and by the sheer power of the Grateful Dead: "I'd never heard anything like it," he says. "It was a little bit scary. Garcia was sort of frightening with that cosmic electric intensity he had back then."

you know, that video that papaver mentioned a while ago (if it's the same one) does capture some of that frenetic energy that may have frightened bear and others, especially watching neal cassidy. dude seems like a real firecracker on the video. fwiw :blush:
