I travelled from Brooklyn with my wonderful straight laced father who was sixty years old at the time. He offered to go with me after a friend bailed on me , saying he hadn’t been to wash quite awhile and was interested in seeing this band that occupied such a huge place in his son’s life. I remember it being very hot and Dylan was decked out in a full leather outfit. The Heads in our sec we’re intrigued by my father’s presence and he got a lot of attention and friendly conversation , which he really enjoyed. After the show he commented that he wasn’t so impressed with Dylan but surprisingly enjoyed the Dead’s music as well as the freaks in the crowd . He wouldn’t have approved of much of what was going on but commented on the friendliness and the lack of any trouble or rude behavior. I remember him telling me during drums that I should listen to Gene Krupa , who he felt was the best drummer . I lost him in 96 but will be forever grateful to have had this man for a father.

All I remember is that it was really hot, and that RFK moves, I mean that stadium swayed to the beat.

Hottest day of my life. Remember the fire hoses on the crowd? Special thanks to the guy that picked me up while hitching back to NYC.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were amazing. Jerry was in bad shape. He was hospitalized and near death a week after this show. Over 100 degrees that day. Long before the global warming thing, just a few years after Al Gore invented the internet. “Ain’t It Crazy”.
