    yeah! I got to see all those groups, several times. Beautiful Day maybe too often, as they kept playing long past when they should have, and they played every week in a bar I worked at. Country Joe played a lot, I saw them a dozen times at least. The only one I never saw live, but wish I had - Blue Cheer.

    Alas, I was only 9 in 1969 and didn't go to a concert until about 6 years later. I was lucky enough to see a few shows at Winterland before it shut down.

    I posted the Fresh Air clip since it's Gary doing the solo on that. I saw them a bunch as a quartet. But one night they played the Family Dog on the Great Highway. It was right after Dino came in and Gary rejoined the band. Nicky Hopkins was playing piano. They were the best band on the planet that night. They did a mix of the older songs and Dino's stuff. They were so good! I sat out on the patio during the break and sat with David Freiberg and John's mom and a few others, but was too shy/stoned to say much.

    They were a big influence on me. No one sounded like that.

    Sad news. I loved Quicksilver Messenger Service and constantly listened to "Happy Trails" back in high school. I think I'll have to dig out that vinyl tonight. RIP Gary Duncan and thanks for the music.
