First show was Binghamton '77 and I think the best was at the Spectrum in May '78. I don't really go to concerts any more, prefer local music generally but who knows. Maybe I'll catch them in Boston one of these days.
Jerry once said that the shows and the crowd at home (SF), were laid back and maybe took the band for granted in a sense. He loved all of his fans, but he just loved the excitement he felt on the East coast.

I cooked for them many times, from Boston to Atlanta. I loved making them feel comfortable so far from Frisco. I really loved their crew as well, guys like Ramrod were fun to be around.
