I was born in Chicago in 1948. I had compiled stories of actual situations I was involved in as a College Student in 1968 (Democratic Convention). Affairs of a sexual nature. Followed by accounts of the 2 years I spent as the roadie and live sound mixer for a Chicago Rock Group The Flock who took me where the action was where I tell the encounters I had with Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll. The famous and the infamous; more sexual encounters, the strange and unusual, the rich and the Famous. Followed by the unusual life I led after the group broke up until I got married at the age of 30. Basically, we are talking about being at the right place at the right time and befriending the Super Stars of the time and future. All from the position of looking back and my memories of the times and the "Counter Culture" that arose from it.
Next, it was on to Denver. There was another festival at Mile High Stadium. It featured Big Mama Thornton, followed by Flock, Three Dog Night, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention (Zappa introduced the “Wave” and then divided the stadium full of people into groups and had them repeat sounds that he used to compose a song performed by the audience), Iron Butterfly, who still has one of the longest studio recorded songs to date. Zephyr, POCO, Johnny Winter, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joe Cocker, Three Dog Night, & The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
We were all put up in a hotel (I believe it was a Marriot). It was about 12 stories high and round, but the main point is it was crawling with rock stars. My friends Jayne and Gary told me they were in the elevator alone with Hendrix. Now, that had to have been an “Experience”.
