Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
I was one of the early H&D fans from shows at the Main Point (they crashed at a neighbor's who was a manager at the club). When my husband and I spent 10 days in San Francisco in '69 before he shipped out to VietNam and I returned to Bryn Mawr, we were excited to see that H&D were playing at(I think it was) The Hungry I. Because the audience that night was small they couldn't have helped but notice we knew the words to every song they performed. We went backstage after to say hello and one of their backup musicians sold us a little weed which made our last days together even sweeter. Husband didn't make it back from V.Nam--well, he came back in a box (we were so naive)-- and I've always been thankful we could share that beautiful music together. It's bitter-sweet to hear, but I still play their records; bringing back good memories of a romance that ended too soon.
