Bettynh: Your post yesterday at 11:19 brought back a lot of memories. I was fortunate to have seen Pete's appearance at Boston Common in 1963,which drew an enormous crowd, and Pete gave an electrifying (not electric) performance. The Ford Hall Forum appearance in 1967 was unusual because it gave Pete a chance to explain himself, rather than be explained by others. Finally, by 1987 in Lawrence, Pete's voice was pretty far gone, but his performance gave my son the opportunity to understand what Pete was all about. Thanks for helping me to recall these wonderful events , Elmore.
