    I was at that show, but it wasn’t a show. My high school, Nova, was right next door. I don’t remember the date, but it wasn’t a school day. I heard a rumor that the Brothers were going to jam at BCC. I had never seen them before, and I drove around trying to find some friends but couldn’t connect with any of them. No cell phones back then! So, I drove out there and sure enough, in the college field, a panel truck, a few vans and cars were lined up and equipment was being unloaded. It was them, gearing up with generators, some plywood, speakers, instruments, coolers, and drinks. There they were Duane, Dickey, Gregg, and the gang. There were maybe thirty onlookers like me. Didn’t take long and out came Whipping Post, Elizabeth Reed, and Statesboro I think, and other tunes I don’t remember. They played for a little over an hour, maybe more, with some of it being a rehearsal. When it was over there were several hundred spectators. Previously, it was the Beach Boys, Beatles, and Stones. Then Jimi, Cream, Doors, Ten Years After, Jeff Beck, Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, and the Grateful Airplane took me. And that day at BCC the Brothers chiseled their way in too, but before the year ended, the band lost Duane. Duane’s loss was huge. I graduated from high school that year. I’ve forgotten most of what they played on that field, but I’ll never forget the feeling and admiration I had for their music that day.
