Anytime someone posts that without more information I get a sick feeling.

Dig them snazzy amps!
And the tight jeans. Jer'd be wearing cargoes today. Or not.
Dig he ain't wearing glasses.
I love those guys, and really miss Jerry....
When they had an off night I used to say nobody plays bad as good as the Dead.
I don't care how it sounded as long it was them playin.....
No matter where I am in the world, I can put on some headphones, listen to a show and I am transported back to my old home town, 'somewhere in San Francisco, on a back porch in July'.
Great times on my back porch on Schrader St with a cold one and a rolled one, playing unplugged back in the day.
Also miss Keith and Brent - miss Ron McKernan 'pigpen' too, a true blues man
You're preachin to the choir, brother! I went to Alameda high in those days. Spent a great deal of time at concerts in SF. I still have a bunch of handbills and posters. And lots of memories. I was a Dead Head. Still am.
Jerry had one of the best band situations ever for a soloist: if he wasn't satisfied, he could just extend the solo until he liked what he'd said. Ideally it's what I like, a band that knows to follow what I'm doing and let me breathe a bit more until I'm happy.
I read a criticism in RS once where a guy said Jerry was a good soloist but didn't know where to quit. I say, he did it right. Not what you were after? Try again! The audience won't mind, they'll just dance.
Why did Dead Heads try to go to every show?
Because they couldn't remember the last one.
How do you hide your money from a Deadhead? Put it under the soap!
Small world after all:
I was born in Alameda, (grew up in SF) we are the same age, and we both have one of these:
WOW! That's a trip! Ole Strato and I have been walking in each others' footsteps for years too. We could have been standing next to each other at a few concerts.
I was at Fillmore or Winterland mostly, but went to all the venues back then. The Golden Gate Park free concerts. Altamont.
I didn't have a lot of money, back then, but free shows at the park and a few paid shows too.
Berkley Community Theater, Warfield, Winterland etc, KPFA did the rest for me.
I've had that '72 since '78 - I was a bass player in the early 70's and it was a solo by
Phil that made me go back to school and learn music theory....after I scraped my jaw off the floor!
Uh oh. Got that bad feeling. Bobby just cancelled every upcoming engagement, through January.
Bob Weir & RatDog Cancel Remaining Tour Dates
