Therefrigeratornever had any food in it. Just milk (for Jacks sometimes sensitive stomach), beer, and pot in the freezer to keep it fresh. One of Jacks friends from the period, Harry Dean Stanton, claims that Jack was always riding a slight buzz and surrounded by women. Whenever I think of Jack from that period, he says, I always see him with a cheap red wine on his lips. The parties at Stantons house, however, were much more X-rated.
