    Yeah set list fm shows Zappa playing the Nassau Coliseum in March 25 1988 and no performances anywhere in 1983. Hot Tuna also played the Coliseum that night in March 1988!@Rob

    Watch out for direct sunlight and that heat…..The glues can become undone ans well as havung tuning issues… Always good to have a beach guitar to use in certain situations..

    I used a simple beach guitar yesterday and did a nice Genesis and Embryonic in 88 degree heat, in a town Jorma played in years ago… Two weeks ago a Gal came up, threw in a $10 spot into the guitar case and said, “Sounds really good. Thanks for the Jorma tunes.”

    I do the tunes justice. Good tone.

    There was a Nassau Coliseum show in October 1983. Hot Tuna with Falzarano.
    And Bobby and the Midnites opened (Weir had Billy Cobham on drums and Little Gray’s Kenny Gradney on bass)

    @Greg martelli
    Hendrix lit the world on fire along with his Strat at Monterey.

    As for Monterey
    Janis’s Ball and Chain takes the cake
    Big brother played twice and she played Ball and chain twice
    Perhaps her best song live wit Big Brother

    @Mitch Spector
    The Nassau show was in 1988 and it was just Jorma and Jack. That was an interesting bill, bringing together two very different styles that I like very much.

    Your impressions of Monterrey were more like a reverie than a history. That gave it a contextual feel that is so much more meaningful than just an historical recollection. I saw the movie in the summer of ‘68. A fourteen year old small town boy in an art house cinema near Guadalupe and 29th in Austin. I remember seeing Ravi Shankar, Otis Redding, Janis, Jimi, The Who. The biggest impression, and I’m neither pandering nor bullshitting, were the lead guitarist and bass player with Jefferson Airplane. I mean, as a 14 year old boy, Grace had my heart racing and eyeballs popping, but I just remember how cool Jorma and Jack looked. Not only in appearance, but performance as well. I remember distinctly sensing a connection between them that was a part of, as well as apart from, the band. Seeing that movie marked a seminal time in my adolescence. The “counterculture” was the one I wanted to be part of. The atmosphere Jorma described was exactly the vibe I felt as I watched that. Pure joy emanated from the screen with every performance. That day set me on an exploration that continues to this day. I hope my curiosity never fades. Thanks for the recall.

    I am not out of superlatives for these concerts just yet 😉 Thanks again for this respite from the chaos!

    Thanks very much, Rob. I figured that was likely, but I never know with this 50 year old guitar that belong to an old girlfriend….

    I’m about 200 mi. up the coast from Hanna. We gettin’ some heavy rain bands, but not hardly any wind (great thanks). Looks like a good night to stay in and catch a show on the TV.

    @Ed Wood expands in heat and humidity, increasing string tension and making the instrument a bit sharp.

    Looking forward to tonite, but mood is down after hearing about Peter Green. Did you/JA ever cross paths with Peter/Fleetwood Mac of that era? I don’t recall seeing anything about this in your book.

    Speaking of heat (and it’s hot in NJ too!)….
    A question for the guitar players on here who are more knowledgeable than I am (i.e., everyone):
    I find that in this ultra-humid weather every time I pick up my guitar I have to tune it down a bit – every string is a bit sharp.
    Do others encounter this?

    RIP: Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green…
