Buttono The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's exhibit on psychedelic rock "I Want to Take You Higher: The Psychedelic Era, 1965-1969" ran through February, 1998. It featured my guitar and jacket from Woodstock and the first Rag Baby EP.

o We brought a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial from its home in Waukegan, Illinois to the Summer of Love celebration in San Francisco on October 12, with the financial help of the Bill Graham Foundation. It then moved to Justin Herman Plaza in SF from October 13-16, facilitated by Da Mayor's office and the Bill Graham Foundation.

Read the report from the San Francisco Chronicle.

Its visit to San Francisco is really due to the late Bill Graham, who worked with me on many veteran's events over the years. Bill was a drafted Korean War vet, twice awarded the Bronze Star for bravery and twice court-martialled. Of his war experience he said, "I think if I had it to do all over again, I'd probably become a conscientious objector."

We also had a reading of the names of American troops killed during the Summer of Love. Read one participant's amazing tribute to the event.
