Great combo to open. Should have done it more.
The 'Foolish' shines
Jerry owns the So Many Roads, and I agree the Jackstraw>Foolish is hot too.
Second set was pure summertime goodness, with a long stretched out Eyes with Jerome shining. Brokedown was sweetness. Average setlist but the playing was solid as was 1993 as whole.
I have to wholeheartedly second your thoughts, SMR. This was the first time I went into a show with no "wish list" for the setlist. I hadn't seen the boys in nearly a year, and I was open to whatever they laid on me as long as they played it well. Boy was I rewarded! Nothing fancy from the setlist-- just some sublime playing on a beautiful summer evening.
I remember hugging a tree on the hillside and watching the liquid thingies on stage make music then someone helped me too my bus. I have since then visited the tree several times while attending hookahvilles, it still loves and remembers me...as I do Jerry.
Traffic from Columbus to Buckeye Lake was horrendous two lane highway jam. I got off and back on at every exit to make some time, as my father had taught years earlier when he drove mid-size trucks. Made it to Buckeye as Foolish Heart was playing. I had passes with a cousin of Mickey's. We were driven in a golf cart looking for Cassidy and our passes. We found them and headed inside. Stood by the board with Healy at the helm. Spent the break backstage talking to a young female security guard who was smitten with Sting. She enjoyed making sure no one distubed him as he did his pre-show ritual of yoga in his jockies. My friend was "all access" and delivered the kosher pickles we had bought in German Town section of Columbus to Mr. Hart. The band passed by and it was time to head out into the crowd. As we headed there straight from a business engagement, I was in a suit amongst the great unwashed, many of whom thought I was Michael Keaton - I'm Batman, I replied. Sat behind Healy and the board and had a grand time. As the encore started, security headed us through the crowd. At one point Healy stopped the guards so he could hear how it sounded from a particular angle. Hustled out to a hotel near Columbus and flew back to reality the next morning.
this was the show we took the wrong exit (really dumb especially since we lived in Columbus and should have known the way) and got stuck in a standstill traffic jam on some back road somewhere. I mean, we sat there for hours! finally we said screw this and turned around and went the right way, but by that time we had missed the opener and most of the first set. they had people directing traffic that way and I guess they didn't care if we sat there all night, cause it was not going anywhere. glad to have made it in but sorry to have missed the pre-show scene cause buckeye was awesome.
I drove from the shore to Buckeye Lake after working all night with no sleep. When I found my camp I was pleased to be next to Mr. Balloon Man. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think this was the show that Traffic opened up for them.....or was it the Voilent Fems..... anyways great set..great show.... great fun...
I believe there was some auto race in the area that caused the traffic jam. I missed the Sting opener as well. We also bought a transmission for my friend's car on the way and almost turned back, but our determination prevailed and we had a great time. I wouldn't change a thing.
I never really liked Corina until this show. They really took this jam to a whole new level and the tune weaves its way throughout drums as well.
Thank you for a real good time!
only regret I got a little overserved so memories not as clear as sought to be. Foolish Heart really stands out as does Palace at ending.
