11/17/1975 Santa Monica USA Civic Auditorium-
I was at that gig. Back all those years ago, I seldom went anywhere by myself, I had a circle of, I guess you could say, "Rory friends," a circle of friends that got together and went to see Rory play whenever he was in Los Angeles. It was a coincidence, my friend Tim from L.A. called to tell me of a passing of a mutual friend, Russ Campbell, just last week, and we got to talking of those old days, and seeing Rory at the Santa Monica Civic. It was a great place to see Rory- a pretty big venue, but it didn't feel like it inside- there wasn't a bad seat in the house. I remember it was such a positive vibe in the place. We had low balcony seats, and I can still see, in my mind's eye, Rory standing on that stage near the column of amps, the Strat screaming in his hands. I recognized a couple of other friends who managed to get past the ushers and were dancing in front of the stage for a couple of tunes, til security made them go back to their seats. :lol: Russ and Tim were sitting up front next to me. Oh, if I could step back in time, repeat that night. :)
I think Santa Monica Civic has since been torn down. Replaced with something boring, I'm sure.

Memories and shadows, I wonder how many of us are still around, who were there that night? Memories and shadows, wouldn't trade them for anything, I'm glad to have them. ;)
