I saw Mountain at Hitsville in Passaic, NJ a long time ago, I was standing about 10 feet from Leslie for the entire show. What an incredible talent.

Outstanding! I thought he was dead years ago but nope. I was thinking of another giant sized Dude who played guitar?

When I was a kid, my buddy in highschool's Dad had the Electrician's contract at Tanglewood, in Lenox where I grew up. It was summer home of the Boston Symphony but also had a summer series of concerts. Part of the electrical concession was running spotlights up in rafters. I did many shows under a lighting director running a super trouper which is spotlight that works like an ark welder. Anyway, we did Janis Joplin, Sly and Family Stone, Earth Wind & Fire, and many James Taylor shows and others. It was very cool to get to see those folks with a birdseye view and It was quite a hoot to pinpoint the good looking babes at the end of the shows. :)
