to the Forum with Mich and Gillian. Saw [Rush,
Nazareth and] Rory Galliger. [This
was the first show I remember booing at (during Rush "Kill
the singer!"). The show was overlong, there were
seasick teenage girls everywhere, but Galliger was ok.
It ended late, already many people had left. The last
bus was too full for us to get on so] Mich
and I stuck there until 3:25 am.
Gillian stopped someone she knew
and caught a ride for herself ("Well, bye...").
We weren't too happy with her about that. Mich and I sat
in the entrance to Alexis Nihon, then a guy from Beaconsfield,
in a similar fix, got a ride and took us along.
to the Edgewater. Mich, Rob, Ralph. Micelle and Jacques
(?), Maggie, Heather, Pat etc (?) there.
liked to smoke roaches, so Fred and Co. sent her a letter
filled with them. She liked it, they were amused:
November 4, 1974
roaches! We heard how much you enjoyed the last ones.
The roaches aren't so good so we sent you a spliff of
place in the basement. Rob, Mich, Gillian and Rob Eshobe
came over. Smoked. Rob and I watched late movies.
one home. Rob, Mich [and Maggie] taped [audio
sample]. Foster, Fred, Dave E and two others came.
Watched the Godfather on TV.
drunken rant in Ste Anne's. Foster, Michelle, Chuck, Terry
and many others. [Terry had the
new live Zappa 'Roxy'. I drank too much too quickly and
was terribly sick (and spent the evening hanging over
the front porch). Foster disappeared without his shoes,
he crashed in the backyard.
caught a ride with me after (yes, I drove). I took a turn
up the wrong directioned ramp onto the 2&20 at St
Charles. It was corrected in time, Foster never even realized..]
Fragment of conversation between Sean Donnelly and I , November
Sean - Before I knew you, you used to come into the C.C.
when the lounge was open, and you used to set up fucking
signs that said "Hash for sale".
Alan - No, no, no, no, that's the opposite. We used to
set up signs "Hash not for sale", because the high school
kids would come in. We had long hair, they'd come straight
for us every day. "Sell us hash" "We don't have any, we
don't sell hash". You know, so we'd put up a sign above
our table "We don't have hash"...
