As for my own ideal '60s time travel, I'd have to say the day The Beatles first smoked pot with Bob Dylan. *I know: strange choice...* Imagine being in a room with John, Paul, George, Ringo, and Bob Dylan while they all got high--of course, I would've gotten stoned with them (how could anyone pass up the opportunity?!)--and witnessing the absurdity that might have taken place: I'm pretty sure it could have had potential for being the most epic pot party in history lol.

Actually, I wouldn't have minded swapping Madison Square Garden '68 for New Year's Eve at the Fillmore East 1970.

The MSG concert was just fair: Hendrix was on a Image Enlarger

slowly rotating stage (never done since, and for good reason). That's how I got pictures from the front, from the side, from three quarters,...). Half the time you just saw the wall of Marshall amps.

And then you had the teenagers like me coming down from our seats to stand up front flashing our Instamatic cameras (wouldn't happen today).

On the other hand, Hendrix played 4 sets at the intimate Fillmore East over New Year's Eve '70 (2 per night as was the norm at the Fillmore). Those 4 sets are available on CD. On any given night, some songs came out better than others - that's the price you pay when artist jams a lot. But the Band of Gypsies album takes the best from each set; I think it's a great album! Vonbontee, I'm guessing you don't!

I know this was kind of abandoned, but I am ALWAYS thinking about this question. My top 3 would be:


1. 7th February 1964: British Invasion Begins- Being on the flight with them! And how they'd all be so nervous and excited, and then you'd be with them and see all the crowds at the airport and be like, "Wow!".... and the press conference when they're so funny, and going to the hotel and waving at all the fans below, and having the entire 12th floor to themselves and ending up in the bathroom, just becuase they wanted to be together....


2. 4th October 1960: First Night at the Kaiserkeller- John said that the Beatle's best work was unrecorded becuase it took place in dirty, sweaty, cramped, smelly, grimy cellars like the Kaiserkellar (and the Cavern)....Imagine John swearing and making Nazi jokes, the tension between Paul and Stu, them all "maching shau", and Astrid, Klaus and Jurgen being there....hopefully the Hurricanes too, so I could meet Ringo.


3. 6th July 1957: The Day John Met Paul- Its been dramatised and fictionalised a few times, and it would be cool to see what really happened...what were the Quarrymen like when they performed? Was Paul nervous or cocky when they were introduced? What did he play? Was John obviously impressed, or was he snarky?

"I don't think we were actually swimming, as it were, with shirts on, 'cos we always wear overcoats when we're swimming,"-

I would either go to..


that concert; or I would go to the Revolver sessions, specifically Taxman. I would also go to Pink Floyd's Pompeii concert.

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.
