Barry and Jack and I were at a Seva dinner. The gentleman to the left of Barry asked, ‘What do you do?’ ‘Play mandolin,’ Barry said. ‘You?’ It turned out the Steven Jones was part of the team that eradicated smallpox. Hmmm… play music? Not bad. Save millions of lives? Easy question.

Seva is the real deal… and all the active participants are angels. Check it out.

I got a chance to chat with Peter Coyote before the festivities started. What a guy!

    You were all dressed out for the dinner Jorma.Youwere looking sharp in your brown jacket and glasses. How to describe the look on your face as you listen to Peter Cayote?

    Eleven hours in airliner seating must have been a trial. I just got back from San Francisco to Iowa Tuesday and the ninety minute flights about did me in.

    @John B
    That look to me is “boring”. It seems like he’s chewing Jorma’s ear off. Jorma you are one “sharp dressed man”. I’m going to see ZZ Top next week.

    Loved the Seva show at The Fillmore Sat night. You guys always sound even better than the last time. If your ever in Japantown in the future and are in the mood for Thai food, please come to our restaurant. Its Jitlada Thai Cuisine on Buchanan st. You can almost see it from your Japantown photos. My wife who is from Thailand loves Hot Tuna also and would really be thrilled to cook for you someday. Again great great show at The Fillmore. Thanks

    Nice…Is that Bob Weir holding “rabbit ear fingers” over Jack and Jorma’s head? I hope Mickey didn’t ask you to “pull my finger”. Can’t wait for this Saturday’s show at FPR.

    Bobby Weir is the original “photo bomber”:
    The night before the Seva Woodstock reunion benefit 1994 concert on Knob Hill,
    we were at a Ben&Jerry’s shop, doing a charity scoop event.
    My friends from the BBC were in town to cover the concert, so I invited them to the Ben&Jerry’s scoop event.

    As they took a photo of me in front of the ice-cream counter, Bobby leaned-in, while scooping behind the counter and “photo-bombed” me.
    I have the photo as evidence. We didn’t refer to it as “photo-bombing” back in those days.
    It was just:” Why is Bob Weir leaning-into the photo, making that funny face?”

    Ah, those were the good old days.

    I don’t know about that, jim.
    Actually being at Woodstock was kind of fun for me but I was only 10.
    When I left I was 11.

    Playing music at Woodstock presented some real, adult challenges.
