    As a matter of fact, I did with that with "Morning Dew" from Europe '72. :mrgreen:

    Anybody who puts the bad rap on Bobby should listen very carefully to that track. A lot.

    He's the best at lead rhythms that I've ever seen. I paid the most attention to him because of the stuff he was doing. I took it all in but not much stuck.:rolleyes:

    Well, imagine if the only frame of reference for you as a guitarist had been playing only with Jerry for thirty years, other than time spent on the side with Kingfish, Bobby & the Midnights, Ratdog....?

    I'd be as crazy as Jerry! Oh wait. Forget it.:eek::D

    I talked to my buddy Gary today and he needed me to send the location info for the jam again.

    When I replied, I started talking about wishing I could be a fly in the car for their ride to San Rafael. I told him we needed to really blow Cliff's mind. First, I said I would come out from behind or beside the building and my son would take pics of Cliff's reactions.

    But, THEN, I got the idea to have Gary find out the name of a woman he was with 36 years ago and have my son go up to him and ask if he remembers that woman and that he's Cliff's son. He'd crap his pants. A full grown kid he knew nothing about.lmao

    I had that done to me by a friend here right after we moved here in 90. And he knew who I had been with, so it was easy to send his kid to my door and spring that on me. Got me good.:D

    Yes, but he'd thank me for saving his life with CPR.:twisted::D

    For us, that would be just another prank. You would have to know our history and even then, the people closest to us didn't know a lot of things we did to each other over the years.

    Even our parents weren't safe from pranks. And his dad was a bad muthah.

    I was at Cliff's house during high school one afternoon and we were talking with his dad. There were some jokes made and I made one directly at his dad and he just did a fake at me and I about knocked Cliff down turning to run. And Cliff was a fireplug.:D

    To be fair, I was a skinny bastard. He was like a gorilla.:eek:

    I haven't been able to make one of those yet. And this one will be no exception.

    I'll be at Houston Intercontinental when that starts and in the air when it ends.

    Couple years ago was a great one. The opener was some handpicked GD Covers Project stuff. Really excellent.

    I was looking at the teaser for this one. Pig's last show, I believe I heard. Probably he didn't know that at the time... Keith appears to be settling in. Donna's looking like the cat that got the cream. Bobby sounds about 15 years old, and is ripping it up with his red 345. Jerry's very hairy lookin', noodlin' away on Alligator (the guitar, not the song). Pig is just off to the side, scraping away on some little wooden rhythm instrument.

    So, I opened the box for the posters when it got here and, lo and behold, to my eyes' delight, inside were two magazines and a paper.

    The first magazine is the Rolling Stone Special Collectors Edition Jerry Garcia. The Ultimate Guide To His Music and Legend. His 50 greatest songs.

    And under that was the July `14 issue of Vintage Guitar with Johnny Winter on the cover. It went to press before Johnny died, but came out after.

    And the Bohemian paper.:D

    What a guy Mike is! They broke the mold.;)
