floyd was an old hippie dude who retired from boeing after putting in his dues. he still loved his lsd and collected anything from the 'old days'. he had a HUGE seattle psych poster collection (amazing stuff). anyway, he somehow tripped across the old 'union lights' lightshow equipment. union lights was the northwest's big light show outfit from the 1960's - they did the lights for every act that ever played in the northwest back then. he decided to re-start the art of lightshows and began to do all kinds of wacked stuff for bands like sky cries mary and the like. i guess he finally got burned by too many folks and quit in disgust.
what's that saying - "those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it" - something like that? these dumb kids don't seem to know what every stupid hippie (the very hippies they likely despise) knows like a personal mantra:
"the warlocks' was the first band name of the grateful dead. in fact deadheads think of warlocks tapes as one of the finest of collectibles in their trading sites.
so, does this mean that this band will lose their fat greyhaired lead guitarist to a heroin overdose in, say, 30 years?
