I snagged a copy of “California Slim: The Music, the Magic, and the Madness” a memoir by Andrew Bernstein, who knew Bill Kreutzman and Gregg Rolie growing up in Palo Alto, and also toured as part of Willie Nelson’s gang.
But what sold me the book is the stories and archival materials — flyers — about Homer’s Warehouse, 79 Homer in Palo Alto. He also did shows at Stanford Theatre, which they called Stanford Music Hall.
He spoke to Palo Alto History Association recently; I will have to dig the video archive of that talk.
(A huge part of my work, especially as a concert promoter turned policy watchdog, is to examine and influence the issue of why is there no live music in Palo Alto and or is there anything We The People or the public sector can or should do to remedy that?)
