I can’t take kiss seriously.
One song band (Casey Jones) made up of burn outs, druggies and generally scab infested people.
Went to a dead show 2 times, first and last.
The hippies dancing around like roaches choking on DDT, and the stench of patchouli and BO gagged, likely the band was responsible for the spread of various anti-biotic resistant STD's through SF and the country in general.
Did I mention I hate hippies?
I can totally get that they aren’t a “for everyone” sort of band…unless we’re talking about Touch of Grey or something, but I’m a huge fan. For me, it’s the spontaneous improvisation, vast style influences, and willingness to experiment. They were also pretty instrumental in creating a stellar live music audio experience.
Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check it out. Right now I'm reading "Home Before Daylight" by Steve Parish, one of the Grateful Dead's roadies back in the day. Very interesting read!
Accidentally wound up a huge Grateful Dead fan. About five years ago I was looking for some fall-feeling music to put on while painting. Pulled out American Beauty and that was that. Ended up with Europe ‘72 on repeat for months after. Been my most listened to artist since. Didn’t even mean to get wrapped up in it and I can’t quite tell you what it is but I just love ‘em.
Of course not. No one should.
They still exist, and yes they’re annoying.
I've never been attracted to "cult" anything. Even if one of them is a banjo player, I never got it. Still don't.
I like the stickers on the back of people's cars. Good graphic design, nice warning to avoid the contents.
I think they are meant to be taken aurally.
Grateful that the Dead doesn't play at Casa Fezz.
I treat the dead like I do any other art form that I don't understand.
"I get that you get it, and that's cool, ... but I don't get it"
I laughed my *** off that episode
There's some tunes I like. Bertha comes to mind. I've seen them twice. At one show I had sunstroke. The other I caught the flu. No 3rd time for me. LoL
I can only remember 3 dead songs
2.drivin that train.
and they are well done.
I can’t say anything at all.
Big Steve is heavily featured in the amazon doc. Great guy.
In 1968, I was 18 and only a few hours drive from San Francisco. So I was immersed in the whole Dead thing. I wasn't really into them but I had a friend who was gonzo for them, so I had to go with him to a few concerts. Some of those were free, and some cost a couple of bucks. All of them were like nothing I'd ever seen or heard before with all of the experimental music, some of it was horrible and some of it was phenomenal. But you always got a good long concert. I saw them on one New Years Eve (1970) and the New Riders opened with Jerry on pedal steel. They played a few hours and then the Dead came on and played for a long time and kept coming back. Finally, Jerry came out on the stage alone and said that they had played every song they knew. When we walked out of the Winterland, the sun was up, and they had literally played all night long.
I never really got into their music until American Beauty and Workingman's Dead, and something about those albums worked for me. I saw them a few more times over the years after I moved to Oregon, where I met Ken Kesey and several of the Pranksters. They were an interesting lot.
