Account of the origin of the Steal Your Face Logo for the Grateful Dead.
I’m lucky enough to have had the chance to see The Grateful Dead in concert. Jerry was not at his best and I was just 11 years old, but I still got to see my favorite band with my own eyes in my life.
My father got my sister and I tickets as a gift. My sister, almost 16 at the time went with some friends and sat 10 or so rows down from my father and I.
This is also the first time I saw people smoke pot for the first time. It was during the first set. The men in front of us started passing something back and forth between themselves. I asked my dad what they were doing “smoking pot”. “Ohhhhhhh”. They danced from one song and then sat down for the next three songs. I remember thinking, “weird, seems to just make you tired, if you want to dance, why would you smoke that stuff?”
