|Grateful Dead - Europe '72, Vol. 2 [Audio CD] by Grateful Dead|
So we left the dressing room and decided to go wander around backstage during the Parliment set. As soon as The Other Ones came on Ruthie and I walked up the stairs on the side and precede to hangout on the stage about 5 feet behind Bruce Hornsby's piano. The band walked onstage and as Bob Weir was getting ready to play he was smoking a fat cigar.He in turn handed me the cigar as he got ready to play. I was blown away by this and smoked the rest of it onstage during the 1st set:) We stayed and danced on the stage for the entire show which was magical. Then to our delight Steve Kimock walked up and saw us and winked at us as he jammed with the band for about 5 songs:) It was one of the best experiences of my life to dance onstage at The Oakland Coliseum while my favorite musicians played my favorite music.
It was a great New Years Eve!
