Fucking love George he is unstopable! I found a sweeeeet meters show from Jackson in ’75 on panicstream the other day. Geroge pointed out in an interview i read a few years back that the Meters were doing the ‘jam thing’ on the east coast as far back as the Grateful Dead were doing it on the west coast. Makes me wonder what things would be like if the Meters had a big hit in ’87 and the GD didnt.
