IPTC INFO
CaptionAug 7 2005 Jerry Garcia Day McClaren park Amphitheatre ***** Jerry Garcia dressed as a cowboy in his youth. **** "Seems like we were always in the back of a police cruiser " said Garcia's childhood buddy John Clark a writer and filmmaker who now lives in Orlando. "The Excelsior was a lot of fun for us. Harrington Street was our world." ***** Garcia fans have also gathered 1 000 signatures to rename the McLaren Park amphitheater after the world-famous singer and guitarist. Three years ago they printed and sold T-shirts with Garcia's artwork to raise money for a new playground at the park. In all they netted $5 000. The playground was completed in 2003. There's also a movement to declare his childhood home at 87 Harrington St. a landmark and place a plaque out front. "Jerry Garcia and his accomplishments help put the Excelsior on the map " said Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval who represents the neighborhood. Sandoval is particularly pleased with the Garcia celebration because "it's a well-kept secret that I'm the only Deadhead on the board. I have more than 50 shows under my belt." _________ from http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/07/01/WBG9NDEB111.DTL&hw=Jerry+Garcia&sn=001&sc=1000
