What a night

8/8/69' - Started the hot day with some pals from Upland in a van driving around trying to figure out where we could find some ducks to insert into the fountain at the Swing that night for the greatest show of our lives. We found 2 nice large ducks, can't quite remember where, but we proceeded to drive out to San Bernardino, wrangle the ducks into the fountain where they were by all accounts quite happy and well fed by the fans.

To this day I've always remembered the band Trane was to open the show, but to all other accounts it's stated that "The Caretakers" out of San Berdoo opened up. Now I finally see on the above ticket stub that Trane was listed to open. As we were young and somewhat mind altered, we would love to finally know the answer as all we remember, after getting inside a little late, was Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin and 2 of the best drum solo's we ever heard. Bonzo and Clive Bunker. I was the one who got smacked on the head with a flashlight by a security guard for trying to climb the stage during Clive's solo. Sorry about that...

Both bands were in the Zone that night as was the audience. Great Show!! BTW to another poster, I too remember the firehose waterfall coming from the balcony stage left if I recall. Quite refreshing indeed.

What can you say, the Summer of Love...
