    I went to see the Young Rascals in Central Park in 1967. The only reason I went was because a friend had an extra ticket he couldn't give away (the Rascals were not considered cool in my circle)but the opening act was some folk singer we liked.

    When we got there, there was a notice up on the ticket booth that the person we'd come to see wouldn't be appearing due to illness. I looked at the name of the replacement act and said to myself, "who is this a-hole who can't even spell his own name right?"

    Jimi Hendrix.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
