Founder Perry Ferrell, who had created the event to showcase new, edgy rock and hip-hop acts, quits. Fans of the event become disillusioned by the more "mainstream" acts on the line-ups and increasing violence at the shows. The festival tour, after a seven-year run, will be cancelled in 1998. It will be revived, with only minimal success, by Ferrell himself in 2003. 01jan01 clapton marries melia in surrey Jan01 Kris turns 50 - JCC laps to perri como show 'fifty nifty united states.' song 23july01 - neuro spinka says mri =>ABC drug (copaxone - my life style) 18aug01 EC Staples Arena LA (thanks to slowhand member in diamond bar) 09nov01 world trade ctr towers fall 21june02 knee replaced [Ned Young Surgeon, left quite a scar] 07july2002 SIAM in Philadelphia - Lourdes Mark loaned me her collapsable wheelchair to get me to see the Liberty Bell apr03 (1 week) new orleans with glen SDSU spr break 23apr03 - jack d. says i've graduate knee therapy (zion) june03 SIAM in montreal - kris presents 14aug03 - RdTrip with pattie g. laguna seca monterey historic cars (walts barn on return) oct03 - san diego cedar fire storms nov03 SC03 in phoenixAZ apr04 purchase suburu (bob baker carlsbad - finance with chase 1.9% $440/mo) 1-800-662-3325 left to pay $1757 dec07 11jun04 seussentential Del Mar fair 20june04 selma douglas dies (103 3/4 years old) july04 SIAM portland OR (meet up with patty c.-run into dave k.(without elaine) aug04 EC Hollywood bowl (hummer limo with gang) 25july04 fly to West Point for EOT-PACI discussions game program platforms for HPC ed (great for a marine corps brat!)
