TICKETS TORN IN HALF:September 12, 1970-THE BYRDS/DB&F@FILLMORE EAST:A late show on a Saturdayy night to see the Byrds, DB&F, and Great Jones . Great Jones UGH, Delaney and Bonnie were fading into alcoholism it seemed, and the Byrds were 8 Miles High but very good.
TICKETS TORN IN HALF:August 21,1971-The BYRDS/MC5/JF Murphy @ Hofstra with my buddies from Newport Jazz festival. What a strange placement of THE FIVE but hey I’m ready for anything. JF MURPHY and FREE FLOWING SALT up first, a bottle of wine down, THE FIVE rocked the place so hard, the air was so hot and heavy in the arena that the (garage type)doors were thrown open to save us from dying inside. Another bottle of wine and we sat off in the cooler corner until 8 MILES HIGH ended it all.
TICKETS TORN IN HALF July16 1971: The BYRDS@ Wollman Rink in Central Park (outside) aka “a date gone bad”. Amazingly I found one of the only girls, my age, in my town who never attended a concert. That needed to change. Bad idea? Never being one not to get tickets, even last minute at the door, I found myself scrambling, to no avail. So we sat on the hillside “listening” to THE BYRDS. Technically, she still didn’t “see” a concert. I would need for that to change, eventually.
