heard Bob Dylan there twice. first in 75, again in 004.

also gbnf the Astrodome, heard Dylan there again, in 75.

Dylan, and the Auditorium, both mean a lot to me.

a Nobel Award, not so much after what they did in 008.

purple for daze?? or purple haze??

james taylor?? no thank you.

off the top of my head, at the Auditorium I saw -

the Animals
the Who
Jimi Hendrix
Country Joe and the Fish
Johnny Winter
Dylan and the Rolling Thunder Revue
John Lee Hooker
cheech and chong opened the show for Savoy Brown
and more

that Savoy Brown show was a benefit for Ursuline Academy I think or maybe Providence
both of those were all girl catholic schools.

at any rate the audience included quite a few nuns.

cheech and chong had the nuns rolling on the floor,
especially with the uptight and outta sight line from the 1st link below.

these 3 links are from a show they did in Santa Monica Californica a few daze after they were here.
in 72.

Speaking of acts and artist who've been seen performing at the San Antonio Municipal Auditorium:

Jerry Lee Lewis...latest release at that time "Great Balls of Fire"
Lloyd Price...latest..Stagger Lee (as part of the Dick Clark Cavalcade of Stars)
Phil Phillips...Sea of Love (same as above)
Laverne Baker....Jim Dandy (ditto)
(Missed the scheduled Sam and Dave show in 1965..they cancelled, rescheduled after I left town)
These are in addition to the several shows over the years of Elvis, Johnny Cash and countless other recording stars of the 1950's and 1960's.

Trapper,

The Plymouth was "invested" in a time capsule, with plans for reopening.
Mrs. West and the Ferrari, according to the media at the time, were "encased" in free-flowing
concrete, to prevent "any" recovery/disinterment efforts! Photos of the "ceremony" show several
cement trucks pouring wet cement into the retaining box around the vehicle and it's occupant, clearly
never to see the light of day again.

Never met the lady, but by all indications, she was something of a "free spirit"!
RIP Mrs. West....nice car too!

October ~ 1957 ~ San Antonio.

A long time ago & sometimes it seems like it was only
yesterday, depending on how my aching body feels.

I Saw Fats Domino, Chuck Beery and a lot others but I
can’t remember them all right now.

Except for one in particular.
A young slim guy from Lubbock, Texas.

The small band was billed as “The Crickets.”
Later it was, "Buddy Holly & the Crickets.”

I wasn’t aware at the time but...
never again have I witnessed so many rock & roll legends in one
building at the same time as I did in San Antonio at the
Municipal Auditorium that October of ’57.

I was a freshman at Burbank when I read about the fatal crash
that took Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper in ’59.

Born Robert Velline in Fargo, North Dakota, Vee was only 15 when he took the stage in Moorhead, Minnesota, after the Feb. 3, 1959, plane crash in Iowa that killed Holly, Valens and Richardson on their way to the concert.

The album Adobe Sessions also included Vee’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me,” a nod to the folk-rock legend who got his start in Vee’s band in Fargo.
