The year was 1974. I had dropped out of high school and was hitchhiking around and across the northwest. For about three or four months I camped out at what became known as a Rainbow Gathering, a big hippie free for all located at a place called Highbridge Park in Spokane. Music, free love, the works.
Lots of school buses and hippies of all feather abound. And it was here that I met Lou Gottlieb, the late Limelighter bass player who is singing in this video, who piloted the Morning Star Ranch school bus. Very funny and charming guy and very fun days.
