75. I remember a couple weird shows in Phoenix about 10 years ago...

She was playing at a Coffee House that did this cool outdoor campfire concert series. The day after the show the club owner went to pick her up at the hotel and take her to the airport and she'd disappeared. Turns out she got bored and decided to check out early and hitchhike to the airport. She also had her phone off, so the promoter couldn't get a hold of her - all he knew was the star had vanished in a more remote part of the Valley. I don't remember if the promoter found her along the way, or if she called from the airport, but it was really strange.

I interviewed her for another show in Phoenix that she was doing with the guys from Firesign Theatre. She was late calling for the interview - from Australia - and then wasn't able to afford the call charges so asked me to call back. This normally wouldn't be a problem because the paper would pick up the tab, but because she was late calling, the paper's switchboard had closed so I couldn't connect an overseas call. She was kind of snippy about the whole thing, but I did get a good interview a few days later, unfortunately the show was cancelled the day after the story ran...
