He was "very involved" indulging in massive amounts of cocaine and weed back then. That's as close to a "business meeting" that he had.<quoted text>No, I do get it.
It's simple supply and demand. It seems to me that Jerry Kraus, by having a public meeting like he did, is trying to gauge the demand so that he might make informed decisions about how to market the Stanley to promoters. I know the Stanley doesn't book its' own shows and that they rely on outside promoters. I think that those who controlled the Stanley in the past were hesitant about allowing it to be used for certain types of entertainment. That was fine when they had a niche they filled but that's obviously no longer true. In order to survive they will need to diversify and reach out to a new audience and to promoters who may have been excluded in the past.
Contrary to what someone posted here, my memory is that Jerry Krause was very involved with concert promotions in his many years with WOUR dating back to the 1970's. Valuable experience if you are trying to drum up new business.
Otherwise this dunce was clueless. Perhaps if he whips out a bag of blow at the next "volunteers" meeting he can pretend its the 80s again and convince everyone he is still relevant.
