GUEST,Songster Bob BS: Where was your first time (56* d) RE: Where was your first time 08 Sep 06

Well, not including music class in school (we had 'em! kids these days don't), I guess it was the troop ship coming back from Germany in 1966. They had a talent show, and if you volunteered for it, you got out of other duties. Since those were things like cleanup and such, it was no contest. I played "Don't Think Twice" and one other song, as I recall.

Then, since a troopship isn't "public," in that no one could leave, the first "real" public performance was at a coffeehouse called the Needle's Eye, run by volunteers from the National Presbyterian Church, in DC. After a couple of spots on the show, I teamed with a guy named Al Glassner, and later formed the "Hungry Two" with another guy, named Grant Carrington, who was an aspiring sci-fi author.

Since then, it's been fame and fortune. Not for me, of course, but fame and fortune were there, I'm sure. I saw them in the green room of the Cellar Door, one cold December night, in 1968.
