LOOK For the OL' starfighter7 ... in an outta-the- way Place CALLED *ZEPHYRHILLS* down.. FLORIDA -WAY ( central FLORIDA )many refer to it as "...the…
OKAY, Thats' "A Wrap"...on the 'Review', for the Rest o' the Story, where can someone "PICK-UP" a Copy of the Volume (ie., Bookstores, ) Is it in 'Trade Paper, YET? and... How Much 'WE Payin' (+ TAX)?
Thanx for the Review!
A "Stones Fan and Memoribalia Collector!
THE FACT YET REMAINS.... There WAS ONLY ONE band..... that Author/political Sociologist & Anthropologist.. "Touted" in the Early " 60s'. " Dr. KEN KEYSEY formerly, an english Professor in a pre --1960s' Bow-Tie University. IT WAS HE... and his "Merry Pranksters" that....
were the megaphone... (Along w/ the Psychedelically-Painted "BlueBird School Bus"), that afforded the "GRATEFUL DEAD" their first Platform.. outside of No. Ashbury Streets' Coffee houses and former 'Beatnik -Hangouts'. The
un-abaited passing of Virtuoso -- JERRY GARCIA (and the
seen/unseen "dancing Bears"... usually summoned by some 'blotter ACID'!) --
that was featured on the FRONT PAGE of Nearly ...Every Newspaper in the Continental U.S., the day after his Passing! There WILL NEVER ... NEVER Be another Band as Illustrious,
'San Franciscoed', FILLMORE EAST & FILLMORE WEST.. Proven.. or Golden - Gate PARK Playin'. (remember.. the initial "Gathering of the Tribes"
Concerts?) An 'eminent' of a Musicians Line -up of pure NUT GENIUSES that the 'Dead boasted as a
"Starting Line -up!"
These Individuals Were about 72% of the First "ROLLING STONE" Newspapers Copy (on NEWS PRINT!) that typified an "Underground" Newspaper (even though it was closer to a "HIP" 'Cash BOX or BILLBOARD' than a True Underground Pub. (like the "VILLAGE VOICE".) No Matter, what Mssrs. Mickey Hardt, Bill WEIR,or any of the other "Survivors' of the "DEADs' " GOLDEN DAYS of TOURING" and the 'Be -- INs'
NOPE... NO OTHER BAND.. THAN the ORIGINAL "GRATEFUL DEAD" -- R.I.P.!!
