    Oh, my god! It's still there? I saw Cream here! And smoked a whole bunch of dope andsaw tons of other people... I can't believe it's still there! I looked for it when I was last in the Big D and couldn't find it...

    First time I went here, with MC5's Dennis Thompson, Dennis accidentally put his foot through the floor. "Russ Gibb used to be so uptight about that floor..."

    Didn't they tear it down? I'm going to cry!
  • Jeff Economy 6y

    NO!!! Please say it ain't so... the Seventh Day Adventist Church next door owns it and has been promising to renovate it or tear it down for years, but they don't seem to have the resources to do either. I hope it stays put, otherwise what will happen to the Grande Ghost?

    Sad, I went to concerts there. Saw the who, led zepplin and others. My mother went to concerts there (in the 1930's!). It was a very Victorian. Not many place like this left.
