Memories Of Fillmore East

The best part of going to the Fillmore East (and its counterparts in SF) were the light shows that flowed with the music on stage. Recent concerts may have laser lights, giant dildos, or bricks; but there is nothing really to compare to Joe's Lights or Pig Lights or Joshua—staples of the Fillmore East. That's what set our shows apart from arena rock. A truly unique experience to see these bands at their prime at places like Bill Graham's Fillmore East (or Fillmore West).

Which brings us to this extra: Derek & The Dominos In Concert. Eric & The Lads run through a few oldies (Blind Faith, Eric's solo album), a new tune Got To Get Better In A Little While, and then something that I have to apologize for to every person on the planet. One extravaganza of the 60s that I hang my head in embarrassment—the interminable drum solo. Sorry Jim, you ruined Let It Rain. Still the concert does have Slowhand at one of his peaks. It was a great concert.

And that's the other reason it's listed here—I was at one of the shows
Ticket Stub

. That's right I saw Derek & The Dominos (along with the original Humble Pie) at the Fillmore East for $4.50. Part of the fun of being an old fart.
