    My favorite Jerry song. The lyrics are very meaningful IMO.

    I saw The Dead a couple of times, The Bickershaw Festival and Alexander Palace; I still listen to them regularly.

    Nice! Dead and Company will be selling tickets on the 8th for their Hollywood Bowl show next June. I want tickets! :)

    I'm actually working in Beverly Hills right now, so it would be convenient for me.

    Unless they hit the UK, I doubt I'll get to see them.

    I like your stoyle... :)

    Hey, lately I've been enjoying listening to Jerry with Merl Saunders too. It has a different kind of feel to it. The following two are probably my favorites. Both solid jams.

    Though I have heard and am quite aware of the huge impact the Dead have made, they are simply one band I was never able to get into. I won't argue with Deadheads, but I am curious what the big appeal is in their music.

    I think it was their ability to 'jam'. If you saw 3 consecutive nights on a tour you would get different sets and different version of the songs.

    I think it was more about maintaining a cultural meme then it was about the music.

    Call me crazy, but I like stuff like this:


    ...Referred to as "space" it's best enjoyed on a long country cruise out in the middle of nowhere. My wife sometimes can't take but I thoroughly enjoy it through and through. :)

    I like other styles of live music as well. This one's by My Morning Jacket.

    There's a huge hump one needs to cross to enjoy their music in the way that a Deadhead does. I hated it at first, but had a period in my life where I had a roommate with whom I commuted to work over an hour, and we had about two 8-track tapes that we bought in a gas station convenience store, one Grateful Dead. It was those hours of listening that finally won me over.

    When I got married in 1990, my new wife had to go through this learning curve as well. She didn't like it, but came over, and eventually joined me as the bass player in our dead cover band, and eventually saw about 40 shows with me. Right now, she's dancing to Scarlet Begonias, a Dead classic.

    That was more true before Jerry's death and the end of the Grateful Dead. There was more to the Dead experience than the music. There was a community experience, and familiar iconography such as my avatar, a Jerry Bear.

    But now it's just the music and the memories.

    Yeah, Drums followed by Space occurred in the middle of every concert. It's not for everybody.

    Can I share a bit of our Dead cover band with you? This is the two of us with an electronic drum machine, she on bass, me on guitar, both singing. To those unfamiliar, note the lyrics. This is among the things we love.

    Moonlight wanes as hound dogs bay
    Never quite catch the tune
    Stars fall down in buckets like rain
    There ain't no standin' room
    Bright blue boxcars train by train
    Clatter while dreams unfold
    Way down, down along lazy river road

    That is totally awesome! I know I've tried to get into them many times, but always found the music wanting. (And I've seen a lot of the bands from that era Live too.)

    Vanilla Fudge was a trip. They were practicing in a elementary school gym next to my dad's business when I was about 12 or 13, so, summer 1969ish. (I just peeked in the window and hung around the door. I was too scared to go in. LOL.)

    Long standing deadhead here. Although some would say i'm a lightweight since i've been a fan for only 45 years (late to the party). I saw them maybe 40 times, mostly at Red Rocks.

    As far as getting over the hump, I think the elephant in the room is that their music goes hand in hand with being in an altered state. Of course they did the acid trips with Kesey, but a lot of deadheads got past the drugs and got into other ways to achieve altered states. One common approach was/is the whirling-dervish method, quite common at all dead shows.

    Amongst folks who've done psychedelics, there's a saying that you never come entirely down from a great trip. I think there is some truth to that, so if you've been to those altered places, then even if you're not altered in the moment, the dead can get you back there. that connection between the dead and altered states is really tight.

    Another thing about the dead is that while the singing was often weak, their lyrics are second to none. I'd put a lot of their lyrics up against Dylan or whomever you name.

    Miss 'em a lot. I'm surprised at how happy I am to see Mayer playing with them - it kinda works!

    @icehorse, you ever hear this one at a show? :) it would give me the chills.


    ...Sometimes I feel like a lost sailor. Hopefully not too lost. :)

    Those are pretty serious lyrics throughout Lost Sailor, saying he was going to take his girl 'to a place she's never been before'. Completely lost at sea... yet teetering on some kind of hope.

    Then he proceeds to become delusional. Yet optimistic.

    Such a predicament.. love that one.
