He hitched a ride up to Fort Lauderdale, which was where the concert was being held, with a guy in a convertible who dropped him off right at the stadium, and it wasn't until the band came on stage hours later that he realized the convertible guy, the guy with whom he'd scored the ride, was actually one of the Beach Boys, the drummer, whose name he couldn't recall.
