[Hampton, December 18, 1981.]  Yeah, (we were nervous) because we were doing live TV but, you know, once you get out there... you know, it's all this thinking about it. Keith was saying, No! I don't wanna do this! What have we gotten into? And then you try and blame, How did I get into this? It's your fault! No, it's YOUR fault! And then when you eventually get out there, it's really the same as any other show. Except that the pressure is that you know you gotta kind of sing pretty much in tune whereas I - I know I should always sing in tune and all that, but there's a sort of thing where you can't do everything, you know. If you want to do a lot of leaping about and foolin', you can't expect every note to be note perfect. So the pressure is a bit to sing a bit better than you would normally and not fool around quite so much.

I remember playing Memphis back in the "scream" age and if any of the 12-year-old girls would get up and take an Instamatic flash shot, a uniformed policeman would beat her on the head with a nightstick and push her back into her seat. That was complete normality...

                                 Atlanta Fox Theatre                                   Oct. 26, 1981


[Atlanta, October 26, 1981.]  You hate to do the same thing all the time. I love playing the ballparks and the DOMES, you know. For the satisfaction of the band it gives you a terrific buzz - so many people. But by doing just one thing all the time, you forget how to do anything else... And I've always found that if you put in a few 3000-seaters on the tour, and even 300, it gives the band itself a confidence quite apart from anything else... And probably the band feels that working in one of the nice old places like the Fox Theater in Atlanta is kind of MORE satisfying most of the time because the sound isn't dissipated totally, and you don't have to worry about the wind factor and things like that.

West Palm Beach        International Raceway                               Nov. 30, 1969
 
 


[West Palm Beach, November 30, 1969.]  We'd done this incredible flight from New York to West Palm Beach and sat on the tarmac in the plane for 9 hours at LaGuardia, in New York, while they got it ready. We got to the gig 8 hours behind schedule, after a helicopter flight. We got on at 4 o'clock in the morning. Below zero. And that was the last gig of the tour proper... Such a sight. That place wasn't much better than Altamont. Everyone was frozen stiff... You could enjoy the people for hanging around that long but it was too fucking cold to play properly and we tried to do the whole show... too fucking cold. A bummer. After Madison Square Garden, came out of 3 shows there to freeze your balls off in a Florida swamp.

 Mobile                            Municipal Auditorium                                    June 27, 1972


One time we jumped in this car with an Alabama state trooper. Keith used to carry a little shaving kit that had an ounce of pharmaceutical cocaine and an ounce of hash. And this down-home cop is carrying it like it was the crown jewels. He had no idea what it was. I really enjoyed being in situations involving Keith. They always seemed like part of a Fellini movie.

[Birmingham, May 7, 1965.]  We were laying by a swimming pool, just sunbathing. After a couple of hours a speed cop came up to us and said the police had been swamped with complaints from passing motorists saying they had seen a group of women indecently exposing themselves.
