    I carried this poster out to catch my ride home. My brother thought I was nuts.

    I was too young for Woodstock, but the next big one I could get to I made sure I got my teenage ass there. My Mom thought I was nuts, too. Ahh, the clarity of youthful desires. LOL

    I was 7 years old... (too young)

    I did go to the F-1 races w/ my Dad back in the day though. The old Ontario Motor Speedway, which is now industrial area & home of Toyota Arena (Citizen's Business Bank Arena) , a 8,000+/- seat hockey arena that does concerts, etc...

    When you look up Ont Mtr Speedway on wikipedia, they have that poster image...

    Reportedly, Toyota Arena is located at turn 3, of the old speedway...

    I've got the poster sitting in a frame about 8 feet behind me. Still looks pretty good.

    Lots of envy for those living in metro areas back then. Alas, I lived in South Dakota and only the HUNGRY bands went there. My first was Three Dog Night in '72 and then Styx and Steppenwolf in '73.

    I've got a collectible loving friend in Beverly Hills. He saw my post on FB, and he called me. "Hey, Jim...are you ready to sell me that poster yet? I only asked about it in 1997 when I first saw it!"

    "Sorry Mike..."

    "Fucker!"

    Was a little too young for that one. But I did go to the Cal. Jam II, three years later. It was the last function held at Ontario Motor Speedway before they tore it down. Tickets for that one was 13.50. Santana, Heart , Aerosmith, Mahogany Rush, Ted Nugent, Bob Welch W/Stevie Nicks. Just to name a few. Marshall amps galore. 400,000 people, packed in like sardines. No chairs, One concession stand, No merch, that I saw. Walked in at 4:00 AM. Saw a guy walking around saying "Acid for sale" Found out later that Acid was Shit. A whole different time. With a whole different class of people. Basically left over Hippies. I miss those days

    There was a black guy dancing on top of the portable toilets, me and a couple of others where sitting on top of a chain link fence , similar to a baseball catch fence, at home plate, what a time it was!!
    And we got a couple of seconds on TV.
    Cheers

    This reminds me of a drunken keg party I threw at home and had this album stolen , and if I remember correctly it was a double album . The album had a killer live version of Aerosmith Same Old Song and Dance , and Chip Away at the Stone . Damn , I miss that album .

    I would've been way too young at the time but I would've definitely have gone.

    Wow,..in 1974 you were 7 years old DOD?! you're a youngster man!

    This post reminds me of the very first Rock Concert I ever went to! It was 1973 and I was 16 years old, Santana was playing at The Palace Theater in Waterbury Ct. and I wanted to see them soooo bad! At the time I was using my moms car because I had just recently got my drivers license.

    So me and a bunch of my friends climbed into my moms 4-door Chevy Nova and jumped onto I84 in Danbury Ct., where we lived, and drove about 30 miles to Waterbury Ct, to go to the Santana concert.

    BTW, at the time my mom was checking the mileage on her car every time I used it, so one of my buddies unplugged the odometer for the trip! lol. She never knew until years later when I told her! Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is the Santana ticket cost $5.50!

    For some reason I kept some of ticket stubs from some of the first concerts I when to,...here's a pic of the ticket from that Santana Concert,....Good Times!!
