Last week’s Rockucation question was: In the years between 1984 through 1986 this band had a picture of a President stamped on the tickets for the tapers of their shows. According to the band, this president was the king of the tapers. What band was it that allowed fans to tape their show and had an area set up at their sound board just for them and what president was stamped on their ticket? The answer was the Grateful Dead. They always allowed recording of their shows but in this particular time they began the start of a place for them to record. The president that was stamped on the tapers ticket was the one and only Richard Nixon. The answer comes to us from Buddy Denomme from North Smithfield, RI.
