“We were promised a primetime slot,” he told Conan. “What they didn’t tell me is you’re gonna follow the Grateful Dead. Things went sorely wrong after they hit the stage, what they didn’t tell us until the 90s was they had all taken LSD just as they went on stage.”

“About the middle of their [midnight] set it went dead silent, I don’t really know what happened. I was quiet for an hour, and then they started playing again.”

Watch the full interview below, to hear how Fogerty salvaged the band’s set, and his interesting interactions with naked fans.
