  • LIA quotes McNally at JGMF: "The Dead still had a show to do that night, at Fillmore West... Kreutzmann arose and announced that he wasn't playing... 'If Billy's not playing, neither am I,' added Mickey. Poor McIntire was left to...tell Graham's manager, Paul Barratta, that the Dead were a no-show. Frantic, Barratta offered the audience free tickets to other shows" (McNally 2002, 348). It's not mentioned whether the other bands on the bill still played. Scully tells a different story in Living With The Dead, but concurs that the Dead were still booked at the Fillmore West: "We go there thinking we are actually going to play, but everybody heard we were going to be at Altamont so nobody shows up" (Scully 1996/2001, 184).
