1. When was this photo taken?
June 16, 1991
2. Where was this photo taken?
Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
3. Who took this photo?
4. What are we looking at here?
My former Boston University college roommate Mike Mokrzycki standing in the "tapers" section on the field at Giants Stadium before the beginning of a Grateful Dead concert in June 1991.
5. How does this old photo make you feel?
Makes me feel about my present age (55).
6. Is this what you expected to see?
Not at all. I vaguely remember going to this concert (I went to a lot of concerts over the years and a lot of Grateful Dead concerts), but I did not remember taking any photos and was very surprised when I saw the images on this lost roll.
7. What kind of memories does this photo bring back?
This brings back a lot of very good memories. Mike was one of my best college friends and he died unexpectedly - way too young - in December 2014.
8. How do you think others will respond to this photo?
I think it's an unusual scene - you don't typically see microphones on stands with umbrellas at concerts, or anywhere for that matter. Anyone who knew Mike will smile seeing him in his element. I also think this photo captures a small part of the experience of going to a Grateful Dead concert, especially for those fans who were into taping the shows.
