“Well, Watkins Glen was my first festival. It was like 600,000 people. It was the Grateful Dead, the Band and the Allman brothers. I was just a kid then. I hitchhiked to California and back after. It was my first Dead show, even though I was there to see The Band. The Band was my band. I was from the East Coast, so the band was the New York band. The next year when they were traveling the big sound system, they got me in hard for it in ’74. All those great times, ya know, taking my family to the shows in the Volkswagen buses. I’m in the Grateful Dead cookbook, from the Vermont shows. “
