    Not sure if this counts but I was in my mommas belly in 1977 at the Forum for a Led Zeppelin show.

    Alice In Chains were a staple for me during the early 90s. All those 90s grunge bands actually. PJ was my fave though.

    but GD have been my band forever. Gratefully Deadicated por vida.

    have had a lot of dead head friends over the years and i definitely never turn them off
    i mean who can hear uncle john's band and not be a fan?
    my attorney took me to see Weir and Lesh in some sort of dead form i forget the name
    was totally impressed w Lesh and his ability as well as so many people being out of their mind high navigating the greek theatre w ease lol
    at intermission i was standing w 4 lawyers and explaining how fluid these beasts were when i spotted a guy circling 50 ft from us
    he was weaving out of control and it took him a minute but he zig zagged his way right over to us and face planted on the ground
    it happened so fast all i could say was "look out!" and he was on the ground lol
    we walked away and that's my dead head experience
    but it truly was impressive to see people THAT high managing their way in an out of the restrooms
    its like they were in the flow w a big smile on their face

    Mine was about 20 yrs earlier.

    The Ikettes.....damn.



    Lee Michaels consisted of Lee on the keyboards and his drummer Frosty. They were pretty hot for a short period of time.

    Four years earlier than your in belly experience a group of us saw Zeppelin at Kezar Stadium in SF (where the 49ers played back when). Didn't realize it at the time, but we were witnessing a legendary show.



    A little (very little footage) of the opening tune.

    Some of my fondest memories have been shared with great people in this scene. It goes beyond Grateful Dead shows. The parking lots and jam band shows were so much fun. Use to see a local Socal band called cubensis. They covered the Dead in such an original way. Use to buy sheets of blotter and black pyramid gels from the drummer. Trippy day’s for sure!

    yeah the parking lot was certainly fun although we became a bit of a target for people trying to bum money etc.
    seemed like a good sector of the crowd had some sort of aversion to soap and water lol
    he is really into his jam music and took me to see string cheese incident which i liked and phish which i did not
    might have had something to do w the fat smelly clown seated behind me insisting on singing the words to EVERY song at the top of his lungs
    i finally just left and went and talked to an old black woman working the venue and that was awesome
    i'd go see umprheys mcgee or widespread panic but so far it hasn't happened
    tried to return the favor and take him to tame but his kids were freaking out on corona

    You dropped with Steve Harris? Wow. I knew him pretty well. My neighbor in HuntBch drummed for Circle [now defunct] and they opened for Cubensis and Solomon Grundy in the late 90s. I hung out out with those guys dozens of times. Lots of contact highs ... never dropped acid myself. Not my style.

    Pretty cool. Hadn't thought of Cubensis in years. Btw ... Steve Harris died of cancer in 2017. Sad.

    Lol. No but sounds like good times were had. We use to eat that shit like candy. Got to the point where we would just rip strips off of the sheet and dose each other blindly. became a game and shit. Would be like hey “insert name here”... guy would turn around and boom stick out your young homie... buckle up cuz the rest of your day is seeing Walls breathe and talking to fence posts...

    was texting back and forth with my best pal from back in those days and he reminded me that we both ripped and ate a strip from top to bottom from the sides of the sheet. When I say ripped imagine the perforated squares where your supposed to carefully pull a square tab off the sheet of 100. This strip was long and uneven as fuck. Probably around 12-15 doses.

    Made for a few Interesting days and the peak was ridiculous. I remembered the trip but not the amount we ate. Dumbasses!

    yeah i was always afraid of the speed and strychnine in blotter
    after my first couple of times i decided the huge crash was not for me
    did my fair share of shrooms and that was more my style
    probably did acid 20 times or so in measured doses
    i was really scared of not coming down...sounds insane even thinking back about those days let alone 12/15 doses at once damn!
    i can't even imagine how that went
    but i'm here for ya if you want to try and explain lol some of the best stories since it often seems impossible it happened like that

    I can assure you no elaboration on my part. But yeah we were at a dead on the mountain event at krakta ridge ski resort in Angeles crest.we ended up at a park in eagle rock spent the night before wandering elsewhere. There’s just too much to elaborate but I can tell you it was mind melting. We use to eat 3 doses at a time all the time so we were pretty tolerant to the stuff we had and basically had only a couple trusted sources with consistent shit. Liquid was the crazy shit because the drops weren’t accurate. The blotter was the weakest with gels being a very calculated STRONG dose.
    Mushrooms were my favorite. Such a great trip.

    now a days, I smoke a small bowl and knock out. Not old but different from those days.

    the speed part was a factor to keep you up tripping but we had a good clean source. I’ve had doses with speed and you know pretty quick. It’s a shitty grind your teeth in the corner talking to yourself kinda trip. No bueno.

    I think back on those days and feel lucky I didn’t scramble my eggs. I do know dear friends who are different as a result. We use to say you had to be head strong to trip on our level.. lol what idiots we were. But we had good times!

    sounds like you had better medicine
    story wise i once found myself on the side of the 405 somewhere between SD and LA and certain i had just seen a guy on a motorcycle slide off the embankment
    he was in my passenger side mirror and then...i pulled over onto the side of the freeway
    thankfully had a moment of clarity and got back in the car
    i have such faded memories of SD but clearly recall an angel walking back a raging man following the moon on a jetty
    met a thalidomide child on mission beach boardwalk on a date
    maybe one of the most intense moments in my life and i just swallowed and spun to the right
    lsd
    stripped down w a brother squid and spread mud on ourselves on sunset cliffs
    we were the first people on the face of the earth watching the unwanted floating in
    how i didn't fall to my death in those chasm's still amazes me but then again i was always lucky
    i just remember gazing into the abyss

    someone posted this on a Bowie fanpage i belong to
    its from around 97 i think and is one of many great songs he wrote in the 90s when no one was paying attention
    it was when the techno rage was happening and he was being influenced by Trent Reznor
    Reeves Gabrels (now in the Cure) delivers a sonic rampage on guitar w Mike Garson delivering his insane piano all over it
    if you like it check the lyrics out its truly one of his best song imo
    oh yeah turn it up LOUD

    Since finding out who Rube is "literally" the same as, I believe his favorite music is Wagner.
