From Richie Furay To New Haven

So it’s been really busy, and believe you me at my age that’s a really good thing. So we got everything replaced after that electrical storm. I hope some time elapses before the next ‘big thing’ happens. We had a killer camp and Richie Furay came to town with his band and played the show Saturday night. By the bye… I got to play For What It’s Worth with Richie and the gang.

We finished that Fur Peace Ranch weekend up and loaded up the bus and headed north to the Capitol Theater in Portchester, New York.

    Looking forward to seeing electric Tuna at the Wilbur in Boston this week, Jorma. A good friend of mine who would have been there passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 74. He will be there in spirit.

    Keep on keeping on
    The evocation of Peter Fonda was moving.
    I’m not much of a t shirt guy but I have 2- that are prized(
    One is ALIVE 75-lightning bolt and Dylan’s rolling thunder review
    Speaking of Fonda -the other is “Billy salutes”, Hopper on chopper giving the finger on his chopper.
    Got my Woodstock 50 box from dead .net The commentary rivals the Muzak
    I was perched at the white picket fence 35’ from stage when you guys took stage Sunday morning
    Good morning people.
    I hitchhiked back to Ct .after Airplane set as Saturday’s music was finishing at 9:40 am on Sunday

    I had to get back to Fairfield beach as I was a 16 year old lifeguard,business before pleasure( or after).

    Look forward to seeing you guys at Caverns

    Maybe wearing Baxter’s T

    Have a great show with Dave Mason. Got to see him once back in the late 80’s at Bogarts in Cincinnati. He played some outstanding guitar and put on a heckuva show!that night.

    Looking forward to Mssrs. Kimock and Porter this coming weekend at FPR. Would have loved to see you sit in with them but I know the road beckons all great musicians. Thanks for FPR and for all your great music!

    Asbury Park show was great, and that’s an understatement. It felt like 1976! Small world, as Richie Furay and Dave Mason, both mentioned on this blog post, will be doing some shows together in October in California.

    Luke Askew is the commune leader Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper pick up hitch-hiking…They are getting spaced on weed around a campfire and talking stoned weirdness…Fonda asks Askew “Do you ever want to be somebody else?” and Askew answers “I’d like to try Porky Pig”…Hopper is the buzz hound and less deep than Fonda…When they go to the brothel to honor Jack Nicholson who is killed by the klan Hopper is in it for the sex…Fonda’s in it for the tribute and doesn’t touch his escort…Askew pays off Hopper and Fonda for the lift with high quality LSD that the pair takes in the New Orleans cemetery…It was probably the reason Askew went to the city…

    There’s a rare movie Peter Fonda starred in called ‘The Trip’…In it he wants to try LSD for the first time and goes to a friend who has a nice designer house in the Hollywood hills…The house has an indoor pool that runs through the place in channels…His friend stays sober and acts as a guide to Fonda’s trip…At the peak Fonda gets a wanderlust and escapes down to the LA strip…He ventures in to a club and when the waitress tries to communicate to him that there’s a minimum and he needs to buy a drink Fonda visibly has trouble processing ordinary earth affairs like the concept of money…The waitress catches on and says “You’re tripping aren’t you?” and Lysergic-innocent Fonda confesses…She’s cool and gets off early and walks Fonda through the streets to rescue him from any reality outcomes…The movie isn’t shown much anymore…It was made just at the tail end of LSD’s age of innocence…

    Fonda didn’t have a broad corner of Hollywood but he had a rich one that was full of the times…

    Thanks for the heads up on Ludlow. I was too young to visit back in the day but have heard the updated joint is pretty cool. I live out east now and get back to Ohio for FPR shows but haven’t been back to Cincy in a few years. Will make it a point to check out Ludlow next time I do. Thanks again.

    I must admit I’m getting fired up about our upcoming road trip. A Delta meander culminating in a first class 50th anniversary tour show of my favorite artists has me quite excited with anticipation. I haven’t done the Delta cruise before, though I’ve passed through the region whilst heading to destinations north and east. To have the Delta and its history as the focal point of the journey and a first rate show waiting at an iconic venue in the city that is renowned for my favorite genre of music is just one of those serendipitous things that I am the fortunate benefactor of. Right place, right time. I know it’s gonna be a ripsnorter. What a fortunate man am I.

    Benefactor was the wrong word, but you get the gist. The universe is the benefactor. I’m the guy on the other end of its beneficence.

    Carey, those were NOT “gummy bears” for kids…they were “medicinal edibles”…listen to me, relax on the couch, pour a cold drink, and put on some Seals n’ Crofts….you’ll be fine in 3-4 hours. Does Graceland have a Freak-Out Tent?

    Actually, they were snickerdoodles I made with some mighty fine home grown and processed canna-butter. A real nice, safe door to perception. No freak out, me. Just thinkin’ on a different wavelength.
