At the Fillmore West Tuesday jam sessions in the late 60's and early 70's, Dave would often make personnel selections for the sessions and participate as well. Tuesdays were always packed due to the $1 admission fee. There was no seating and the lighting was dim. If David needed someone to play a particular instrument, he would go out into the crowd and the first person that he ran into that he knew "could play", was asked to jam.
David Brown died in 2000 due to liver and kidney failure.
