I was there. 16 yrs old. Drove down with my brother and a friend. Bought acid in the parking lot. Set up a tent not to far from the front of the stage. Was broke. Went cooler snatching while Joe Walsh was playin. I filled up 2 gallon milk jugs with beer, had 1/2 gal. pepermint schnops. got so drunk during Molly Hatchet, passed out. Crawled back to the tent and somebody had pulled the stakes. My brother and friend was passed out to. It rained and we slept in a calapased tent with pools of water. In the morning some guy came to our tent selling acid. We didn't have any money so we smoked a joint with him, gave him a couple of beers and he gave us some purple microdot. That night we rolled a drunk and got some more pot. Starvin, broke, high, we drove to a store and shoplifted crackes, and bennie winnies. Barely had enough gas to get home.

I am from just south of Indy and 52 now. I was there and bought what turned out to be a counterfeit ticket. I got to see the first day. Came back the second day and wouldn't let us in. I still have the ticket, promo flyer with the lineup and newspaper clipping from the Tennesseean Sept.4th with a pic of the crowd and stage. And by the way INXS stayed at the Holiday Inn at Franklin. we pulled in there by mistake went in to check in and they were checking in too. We had reservations at the Holiday Inn on the Vanderbilt campus. Not sure what caused us to take the Franklin exit but glad we did. We knew them boys weren't from around here just by their clothes and shoes. Will never forget that. Good times.

Hippie Chick, I was there and don't know why nobody mentions the way the cops ran everybody off on Sunday night at 12:00 sharp. I always figured that Marshall Tucker would have played until the wee hours if they could have. Forcing all those stoned/drunk people to leave was one of the most stupid things I ever witnessed. I bet there was a road block between the festival and the interstate, but I took back roads to my place in Leipers Fork. The show was great, although I had about 5 cases of Budweiser confiscated while going in. I guess that was Miller's way of getting money, although we organized a trip to the store next day and bought every Bud they had. Peace, Don [email protected]
