    Soldier Field was the last show. We had tickets and go to the gate to get in but the gatekeeper said the seat numbers on the tickets didn't exist so he walkie-talkied someone, then went to talk to someone in person, then came back and told us to follow him ... which we did ... onto the field ... center ... about 20 rows from the stage. An hour earlier while we were selling Snapple -- which is how we bankrolled much of the road trips -- one of the roadies who was severely parched thanked us for a few freebies by giving us half of a fat J that he said one of the band members had smoked before putting it out. We smoked it. In retrospect we should have framed it. Good times.
