At the age of 12 in '67 I saw The Dirty Dozen and The Trip within a short period of time. In a way that made for quite a duality of tone. Both had stars that went on to be not just counterculture icons but have shown staying power for more than a half century. As examples of the times they made an impression and reflected, not to mention helping to accelerate, a cultural shift in Hollywood and the broader American culture. It was an interesting time.

My first Peter Fonda movie was "The Wild Angels" Shortly there after I bought my first motorcycle (1948 Indian).

In retrospect it was a terrible movie, a long way from it to Easy Rider, both of which were a strong influence on my life.

‘Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry’, musta seen it a hundred times. I think it was on HBO when it first started. They just kept showing it over and over. Of course, as a young teenager, the blonde had my attention more than Peter Fonda. Still, a fun movie with a surprise ending.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
