    If you’re talking about the 9/26/74 show. It was Bob Steeler on the drums. His drumming is very distinct from Piazza’s.

    I made the Trenton Speedway Show. First time Kingfish played the East Coast (1975?). That was a crazy long day of music. I remember Nils played the Star Spangled Banner al la Jimi. POCO was there as well.

    I recall some Tuna fans being rude to ANY opening act, calling for HT while the opening band is playing. Now that ain’t right.

    One time though Dan Hicks and his HL opened at the Del Mar theater in Santa Cruz and when the HT fans started calling for Tuna, Hicks ripped into them, ridiculing them as they deserved. (I love Dan Hicks and followed him as much as HT in those days so I thought this was great.)

    Enjoy the moment and the diversity I always say.

    Do you remember Craig All of the people outside of the speedway pressing up against the chainlink fence pushing up against it and eventually knocking it down and pouring into the concert arae ? I remember those big Trento cops with snarling german sheperd police dogs going after them. That was a great day of music.

    I need to jump in. First Show Academy late 1972. Never jumped ship since. My all time Tuna memories are Bananafish Garden in Brooklyn April 3 – 4 , 1973. Bay Ridge Brooklyn was out in full force. HOT TUNA were BROOKLYN’s adopted band back in the day. The afternoon show was filmed for IN CONCERT TV , you can see one tune on youtube. My brother Franny could be seen dancing his ass off. I am partial to those Papa John days and saw many of them. Next up would be those shows in 75 & 76. Palladium , Brooklyn College , Calderone ect ect. Many many eletric evenings spent in Long Island , Upstate NY , NJ , PA they seemed to never leave. I still catch them 2-3 times a year and get to the Ranch when possible. Next one for me is July in Harrisburg PA Electric. Thanks Jack & Jorma !!!!!
