press conference at the NYC Hilton on 1/9/79 before the band played Nassau on 1/10...the tape stopped during recording and both Billy and Jerry reached to flip it
01/09/1979 New York City Hilton -- press conference
New York City, January 1979
Minkin attended a press conference for college media and was shocked when Garcia walked in and whipped out a joint in full public view. "It's not like today," Minkin says. "Pot was pretty illegal! Not everyone in that room was hip, either. There were people from the hotel in suits. It was a roach, not even a full joint, and he was re-lighting it. I thought that was pretty ballsy."
