Rubin and Cherise
March 27, 1991
For me, this is the epitome of “you had to be there.” While you’re never going to get to fully relive the moment, I can’t even get back in the same ballpark, be it soundboard, video, or audience. That said, this was one of those top live moments; even the seemingly unwavering stern cops directly in front of me guarding the big lane 14 rows back from the stage -- their backs turned to the band the entire first set – dropped their folded arms, along with their jaws, as they involuntarily turned toward the source with some kind of respect, even reverence, to what had overtaken them. Meanwhile, the chills that set in for me from the first chords of the song were now in some kind of galactic hyperdrive; otherworldly suspension… before going its way again.
