In 1983 I (Mike Owens) was 20 years old and a long haired head banger. My little brother Doug and I drove from Fresno California down Glen Helen Regional Park near Devore, San Bernardino, California. It was the best concert ever. People walking around holding up signs like: ACID FOR SALE, One guy was walking around with a trench coat on and when he opened it up there were bags of weed pinned all over the place inside the coat. There were no uniformed cops anywhere in the crowd that I saw. There were a couple of helicopters and cops on horses all around the rim of the canyon.
