Acid farts. Ever get seriously noxious gas from LSD? That's a weird sensation. Especially when you're too paranoid to roll down the window, much less get out of the car. It can be positively lethal.

I saw Peter Tosh at the Agora Ballroom in, like, 1981. The Legalize It tour. The crowd was all geeky white kids, smoking matchstick sized flashes. Near the end of the show Peter came out with a spliff the size of a megaphone, and toked like a fiend. It was very humbling, and we snuffed our flashes before the Master.

Why do you suppose Deadheads would listen to Hot Tuna, but nothing else? It was if they were saying See? We tolerate diversity. We're allowing Hot Tuna to be played. Yeah, you knew when Watch the North Wind Rise came on, el cid was wearing off, and it was time to grab a couple of hours sleep, populated by terrifying dreams.

Damn girl, bring on the memories! Never saw Tosh, The Dead was my favorite, on LSD of course. Saw the Dead many times around the country... Hot Tuna was a close second, hell yess with Papa John Creech at the Cains Ballroom in Tulsa! You go! MURRY
