    I don't think of Pete as an athlete, but he sort of was. In his autobiography, he says he was the fastest kid in his neighborhood save one person who could outrun him. So, he may actually have more powerful legs than average. And if you look at him standing on stage, dude is all legs

    I don't know why, but I always liked Pete's look with a beard. :edthumbs:

    Great Wembley photos - Those were fantastic nights. I was at all three of them, one in the front row - My most memorable concert experience ever. My abiding memory is the aggression - It was literally scary being within touching distance of those lads at full tilt. I'm looking at the ticket stubs right now in a frame along with lots of others on the wall of my office.

    I did take those. But as you can probably tell, I was a bit towards the back, not real optimal for picture taking. Using a telephoto lens.

    These weren't great shots, I just wanted to put them up for anyone else who might have been at that show.

    So if you have some, I'd love to see them!

    Hi Chris, and thanks for all your work over the years. I can't tell you how many CDs I've bought that you wrote the liner notes for! :cheers:

    @keifspoon Regrettably I am not the eminent Journo Chris Welch! - I am merely someone called Chris who currently lives in Wales / UK! - I do have rather a lot of concert experience however :righton:

    Early on- Monterey, 1967- he wasn't. I think he may have begun to appreciate them more in later years. Pete apparently got on with the son of Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, Justin, quite well when Justin was just a kid out on the road with his dad. By Justin's own account.

    John Entwhistle was asked about the Dead after the 1981 Essen Germany gig- apparently some people were puzzled by the matchup. The Ox laughed and said "We're exactly the same, they just have longer hair." I guess, maybe from a bass player's point of view...

    GD road manager Rock Scully's memoir includes an anecdote where Garcia is staying in a room at the St. Regis hotel in New York, imbibing various substances with Scully. And they both hear some weird noise on the other side of the wall, persisting and getting louder...and then the bricks move, and a hand come through, and then the wall gives way and Keith Moon pulls himself through into their room! And then, aggh, Moon madness...

    Scully also claimed that the Who and the Dead jointly owned the prestigious St. Regis for a while- or anyway had a share in owning it- through their management!

    I've never found confirmation of either of Scully's stories, and they are the sort of stories that I'd want confirmed. But I can confirm that Scully and David Dalton wrote that, in their book.
