AND LEFT A MARK ON AMERICAN CULTURE THAT’LL NEVER FADE
Here’s Graham talking running the Fillmore venues accompanied by vintage artwork.
Travel back to New Year’s Eve in 1987 and Graham’s entrance to chime in 1988 in Oakland, California. Those of us that were there surely remember this flucking surreal scene.
The 1991 memorial concert for Graham, “Laughter, Love, and Music,” in San Francisco was understandably emotional for all involved, and this raw reading of Dylan’s “Forever Young” by the Grateful Dead and Neil Young is a prime example.
Swing back to 1972 and Graham talking about Jerry Garcia during a rehearsal for a New Riders of the Purple Sage gig at The Fillmore.
We conclude our remembrance of Bill Graham with the Dead at “Laughter, Love, and Music” doing “Sunshine Daydream,” a phrase that, in its way, touches upon the underlying, music loving principles that set Graham on his life’s path, a journey that mixed idealism and capitalism in a way that’s instructional to anyone looking to wring a dollar out of the creative life.
