11 of us, 163 joints & LSD timed to be peaking when The mighty Van Halen came on Stage! I would say we timed it correctly! Good times! even though I have found Jesus! Rather he Found ME!

Saw them three days earlier in Salt Lake City. The only reason it was the worst of the 4 times I saw V.H. is because the sound sucked. Shitty Mormon town, Shitty sound. Visually, they looked great though!
