Barney and Jerry: International talks


Barney told me in 1976 when I asked him about meeting Jerry in San Francisco, that he exchanged guitar chord ‘fiddlies’ with Garcia in 1968. “Yeah, I learned some, and he taught me a couple.”  They went “up in the Sierra” on a hike together and talked like an “old friend, one of us.” Barney said they got stoned and “agreed to take over the world, share it between us like the Spanish and the Portuguese.”
