Sex, Acid and Rock 'n' Roll
Caught "Monterey Pop" (the newly restored version) in Dope City Saturday night. Just Sonja and I.
Pre-movie meal at La Casita. We felt good before we sat down. Once done with a couple pitchers of margaritas we reached the point where you do not get to feel any better. Then we ordered one more pitcher.
"We should do this more often," Sonja coo'd.
I concurred. Next morning we both thought better of the idea. Tequila. Talk about pleasure and pain.
Film was a real treat for the ears. The Who, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix impressed me the most, same way they did when I first saw the film on tv fucking near 50 years ago, but it was the Jefferson Airplane singing in my head when I woke in the morning.
I have records by all the people who played that festival. Over a hundred of them surely.
A little sex, acid and rock 'n' roll never hurt anybody.
