I seen the Steel Wheels I think, couldve been voodoo lounge
We went there in a VW Bug , I was in the back seat.
My 2 friends Rod and Justine were in the front and we had a big load of firewood which made the bug rather nose heavy (but thats another story)....
As we didnt have tickets our aim was to jump the fence
But a truck had rolled on the highway on the drive up and there was a huge traffic jam, And Im in the back of a bug thats growing smaller by the minute....
So by the time we got there the show was started, we parked as close as possible in some persons front yard and sized up the fence jumping operation.
Now I had my winos overcoat on, a big woolen coat with lots of pockets, into which I had put a good supply of bottled beer, ( not that I really needed it with the shroom juice I had defrosted and consumed prior to climbing into the back seat of the VW Beetle....
But I was the type of drinker who never ran out of supplies see��
Ok so the venue is round,
security is 2x2 walking in opposite directions around the circumference.
I decided to chicken out on fence jumping as the Stones were quite audible and I could see the show on the big screen.
Also I was tripping quite strongly and quite incapable of fencejumping and I had the sense to realise the fact.
So I became lookout
My mates casually got closer to the fence, I was far enough away to observe the pairs of security and as they passed each other they had thier backs to us till the next pairs appeared.
Therein lay the window of opportunity!
At the best time possible I gave the signal and over they went!
Found out later they got right to the front of the stage, while I leaned against a tree watching from outside.
Its only Rock n Roll but I like it....

ok the rains stopped now��

They were here last weekend but were sold out. Not like I could afford it. 3 months of wound care just got me a $2900 bill and I hit my cap for the year. So, I decided the Rolling Stones concert was not in the cards.

I never understood devil worshipers. I mean, the guy lost a fiddling contest to a uneducated hillbilly from Georgia for Pete’s sake!

Rained for the last half of the show but had the smarts based on the forecast to pick up a couple of cheap ponchos at the Home Despot on the way, so we just kept rockin' and rollin'. When they came back out for the encore, Mick said it was great to be in Philly again and announced "We been comin here for fifty four fukn' years!".


Oh and my 'Can you top this' concert: Jim Morrison and the Doors, Cleveland Auditorium 1970, year before he died.

Was offered tickets and a ride to see them in Orlando back in the early 80's. Didn't go but was told that when they took the stage it had started to sprinkle ever so lightly and they left the stage and didn't come back and there were no refunds...

As far as devil worshiping - just look at the one album: satanic majesties request

What does an album titled to take a shot at the Queen and the Royal family have to do with devil worshiping?

You've been a bad bad man in your time MotorbikerX, and this one had me doubled up with laughter. Gold tops or blue meanies? I finally figured out the reason they tasted so bad was because you weren't supposed to eat them.
I saw them in the 1973 tour in Melbourne. I drove there in an old $50 Vanguard loaded up with mates, and blew a front wheel cylinder coming down the last hill towards the stadium, jammed it down a gear to slow down a bit, bounced over a railway crossing with the warning bells starting to clang for an coming train just as we cleared the crossing, and did a tight turn up over a kerb into a park and did a handbrake stop there.
Left the junker there and went to the concert.
To get home I cut the hose to the leaking cylinder, folded it back and tied it off with wire, refilled the master cylinder with detergent, did a sloppy bleed job at that hose and drove it home. I probably shouldn't admit that I drove it like that for another 3 months.

Sounds like a 'Right out of the 60's/70's' story. Definitely the kind that are memorable. And, in your case a "Good on ya, mate" one.

Yep and party wagon was the idea 27 years ago when I found it going organic in a field with shrubbery growing up through the non existent floor and the front sheetmetal off laying scattered about , the engine seized solid.
Once I got it home and the body off the chassis , I trimmed what little was left off the bottom six inches of the body and started by fabricating some sill section to the correct box dimensions out of U shape channel steel.
Many parties were had in the body as it sat alongside the chassis.
Got old original pix somewhere,
but hey this is a Victory Forum.
