Not understanding completely.A friend had the opportunity to ‘meet’ him back in the ‘70s.
He was invited ‘backstage’, which was essentially a gym locker room.
He saw JW curled up in the fetal position, laying on one of the narrow benches.
While he was excited to meet him, he didn’t want to disturb him, so he just watched him lay there for about 20 minutes.
Someone walked up to JW, tapped him on the arm and said “It’s time.”
He led JW to the stage, where my friend said he played one of the most amazing sets he has ever seen.
When it was over, JW was led ‘backstage’ again, where he promptly curled back up on the bench.
Everyone was asked to leave after a while, so my friend never had a chance to say anything to, or meet JW.
Was he: properly dosed, under dosed, over dosed, or just not dosed at all?
Those benches are no place to lay your face, even if the janitorial services had just passed through.
As a grateful recovering opiate addict, something about his addressing this state of recline, seems incomplete.
I've been so high that I could've slept 9 hours in a book shelf. That's the only thing that I can make meet logic.
