BIO....or WHO THE HELL IS CAPTAIN JOINT ... by Captain Joint
Born David Glen Bunn on 12/9/53, it didn't take long before folks realized I was put on this earth to make some changes. I put the funk in dysfunctional and was on the couch at the Shrink by age five. School for me never worked, they just kept dropping out around me. A.D.D. was unheard of back then.
It was about 1967 when I started getting on the local Cop's nerves in West Hartford, Ct. I started out small with local demonstrations for teen rights. This came about because the local Cop Shop was doing "hippie removal" in the center green, where we all hung out to play mucic and meet friends. That last school kind of dropped away while the Viet Nam conflict was an issue. I started anti war demonstrations that emptied the building and also smoked a good bit of pot in the school bathrooms. In fact the school sent the Police to my Dads house to tell him to keep me away from the school or I would be arrested. I tried a short stint at another West Hartford school, but putting a Yippie flag with a big green pot leaf up their flagpole in the middle of the night took care of that.
Then I found out that if you filled out the right paperwork in Hartford, they would give you the city park, a stage, electricity and the use of the bathrooms, all free. That ís when the fun started!
