May 8, 2015. San Francisco, California.

And it’s a fair wind
Blowin’ warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I’ll set a course and go

  1. If you’d aimed a little lower you might have included silver people on the shoreline. I didn’t know till now that Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane was a co-lyricist (along with Stephen Stills) of the song.

    • Yeah. I cropped people out. For a while, The Airplane, The Dead, and Crosby Stills and Nash cross pollinated so much that you could’ve considered them one big band. I recall one magical night at Winterland when The Sons of Champlin, The Airplane, and The Dead were on the bill. Well the suns were playing there sad, which was about an hour and 45 minutes, Crosby and Nash showed up and asked Bill Graham if they could do a few songs. How could he say no? The Airplane acted as their back-up band, and of course, knew all the songs. After all the formal sets, all of the bands came out on stage — everyone – and jammed until 6 AM. Those were the days.

  2. I never got to see as many of the storied concerts here on the east coast but have seen snippets on YT. Not at all like being there. Didn’t care for the big city or big crowds so not even Fillmore East or Woodstock. I like the bits of silver here and there that bring s toward the horizon.
