I began going to the Avalon in 1966. Man, I saw a lot of great acts! I remember Chet wandering around the ballroom in his suit & glasses. He was too cool for school, as I recall.

Then he opened “the Family Dog,” in Denver in ’68. Some of my best friends attended every show they had, and they really dug it, too…

I always came back to SF for the shows at the Avalon.
