    Oh, I know something
    About the ways of loving
    And I tell you, baby,
    That something's wrong
    Look to the sky above and the mud below
    Something drives me crazy, got to got to get away
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye!

    Without a doubt, I'm telling you I'm burnt out
    My tank is running on empty for far too long
    Woah! I need fuel 'cause I'm getting so low
    Something drives me crazy, got to, got to get away
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye!

    I need fuel, just the kind you give me
    Makes me feel so bad
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
    Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye!

    I can't believe
    I'm still around
    It's getting kinda late
    Gonna leave
    For a change of scenery
    I'm going crazy
    It's not the same
    Since you've been around

    I'm crazy, so crazy
    You treat me like a dirty clown
    You're always kickin' my dog around
    I never get nothin' but constant abuse from you
    You couldn't care less what I think, or my point of view

    You're always puttin' the make on my friends, always giving
    Them eyes and the dirty lies 'bout me and you, well I'm
    Through, it's the end of the line for you babe, here's a
    Ticket one way Cincinnati, I'm sendin' you home to your ma
    And your daddy, so don't try to call me, you'll only be wastin' your
    Time!


    Oh, I know something

    i always just gave up on the bold part.

    My mom went to this. She makes fun of me for how much time I spend planning my trip to Coachella. " I hitchhiked there with $60 in food stamps and no tix, got arrested and still made it".

    Question Re: US Festival with Bowie, U2, INXS

    Take all the people at a sold out day of Coachella.
    Multiply that by four.
    Then add 30,000 more people.
    Now stick them all in front of the Main Stage all day long.

    The US Festival

    Now just about double that

    They just don't make them like they used to eh ...... cr*****

    The Summer Jam at Watkins Glen was a 1973 rock festival which once received the Guinness Book of World Records entry for "Largest audience at a pop festival." An estimated 600,000 rock fans came to the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Raceway outside of Watkins Glen, New York on July 28, 1973, to see The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, and the Grateful Dead perform.

    I was at the 82 show too. This was the best day of the concert. Epic from the first note. The B52s were soooooo good. It was during their Mesopotamia tour. The Talking Heads were doing Stop Making Sense. The Police were epic.

    My fave was Oingo Boingo. They stole the show that day. YMMV

    BTW I was at Cal Jam II too!!

    It's amazing that Van Halen thought they should be paid more than Bowie. It's even more amazing that the producers did it.

    Because Van Halen were the biggest group in the world and Bowie's star was losing its luster. Remember, this was Bowie's weakest period artistically. His dark spot, even tho he sold a lot of records then.

    But even now Van Halen is a bigger draw and has sold far more records.

    It is what it is.

    Some reason Glen Helen doesn't seem that big . I wish Glen Helen revamp it's self.I dont know what the main reason but ever since I've gone to smoke out it lost a little magic it once had for me a couple years before.Maybe it was because smoke out was that crappy.


    US festival is one of the best things that came out of the 909

    I read somewhere that the stage that they used for the US festival is now at Disneyland. Oh how I wish I was old enough to go to this festival. I took a bunch of pictures of just the hillside last weekend at Mayhem trying to imagine how it would have been to see all those amazing bands back then.

    I heard Fleetwood Mac demanded a Helicopter drop in and only would accept cash payment before they went on... not sure if true but probably with Mick's reputation..
