I have a Jerry Garcia Action figure.

Displayed on my front Foyer table.

Do I qualify?

I dig the music but I have seen Phil more times than Jerry in person.
but I've seen The (Greatful )Dead more times than Ratdog.
But Phil Lesh and Friends are my favorite Dead spinoff.

I have both the DVD-audio surround mixes that Mickey Hart re-mixed.

But I have way more live ABB than Dead shows.

Can I still be in your club?

Peace
John

I don't know if I would considered a dead head or not. I've got about all of the old LPs, and about half of all the CDs that are out right now.

There are also Lots more who ARE big fans including myself. I would most definitely call myself a Deadhead. I saw about 100 shows - most of them between 1979 and 1992 so I guess I would qualify. I have always considered The ABB and The Dead my 2 favorite bands - equally. They both are the 2 bands that take me to that special place that only THE BEST can do. They obviously have the same attitude and play "in the moment" which is/was the key to their success. Both bands draw on lots of different influences and both can improvise on the spot and stretch 'em way out. They also are about as real as music can be - always pure and always only about the music. They have also influenced more bands than we can count. For me it will always "smell like a Rose and taste like a Peach"...

On the weegy board Jerry told me that there are people in the sun that control everything. It makes sense. The sun is real hot so we can't get to them.

Mickey sucks at singing Fire. Warren shoulda sang it this summer.

ABBstillrockin04 - 11/16/2004 at 01:42 AM

I'm a fan. My friends took me to my first Dead show last year with Willie the Dead and Moe... stood front row the whole day.. best time ever. However, they were overly obsessed wannabe deadheads... yea so the story goes on. I listen to the dead a lot, I don't have many cd's though... I don't think I have any Studio Dead cd's, only live shows.The only thing I dislike about the dead, is these overly extended Jams which last forever. If you're in the right frame of mind, sure it's awesome . I think the Dead could play one song for the whole show

are we talking "lifestyle" or do we have to actually listen to the Dead?


musicalbeds - 11/16/2004 at 05:20 AM

I'm still a Dead Head.. and I have a dresser full of tapes to prove it.


dmiller862 - 11/16/2004 at 05:28 AM

I listen to a lot of Dead, however I don't call myself a Deadhead because they haven't really taken over my life. I get tired of them sometimes as well, I can see why lots of people absolutely hate/don't understand them. My problem with them is sometimes they overdo it. Too many instruments improvising at once to be coherent. They're all unbelievable musicians, but they don't hold a candle to a lot of jazz musicians and bands. I think the pure musicianship in the ABB is and has been better. However, in the numerous explorations the Dead go on, there are many true moments of genius.


hughduty - 11/16/2004 at 05:29 AM

Love the Dead,esp. the "Pig pen" years....got to see them once,in Memphis,not long before Jerry's passing.


musicalbeds - 11/16/2004 at 05:32 AM

Seeing them in concert was believeing...


FarmerMaggie - 11/16/2004 at 05:32 AM

Not really a DEADHEAD because while touring for 13.5 years:
I bathed
Combed my hair
Paid for my own tickets
Never crashed a gate
Always watched the opening band
Never got busted(well, detained but not busted)
&
Kept a fulltime job....


FarmerMaggie - 11/16/2004 at 05:35 AM

First show was 4-2-82...
geez, was I confused!


gotdrumz - 11/16/2004 at 05:41 AM

what exactly is a deadhead ?

I don't know the name of alot of thier tunes, yet I know them when I hear them. I got alot of stuff on vinyl and prefer the Ron era stuff. Seen them in the mid 70's late 70's early 80's then not untill the early 90's and if it counts this past summer.
My sister on the other hand dropped out of college and followed them religiously since the late 60's everywhere. I am a fan of the music and enjoyed the experience from time to time. My sister made it a lifestyle... which is the deadhead ?

CowboyNeil - 11/16/2004 at 02:44 PM

What did the Dead Head say when the Acid wore off?

This music sucks!

First show ever was The Band and The Grateful Dead (1973) in Eddie P's hometown, Love the GD. Jerry was a national musical treasure and I think Hunter/Garcia tunes will be classics for a long long time.

Caught The Dead at Red Rocks and they were very good, Jimmy Herring is very tastey. i like that he plays the songs his way while still catching the spirit of the tune. Heard he was not utilized that well this last tour.

Love the P+F with warren, jimmy, Molo, and Rob. that is one of the best bands I have EVER seen, took the music to a different place.

The day Jerry died, my brother called the mayor of our town and asked him to lower the flag to half mast. Didn't go over too well.

I like the dead, but not an all out deadhead. They jam well, but more float than sting. Stick w/ the bros.


FarmerMaggie - 11/16/2004 at 04:32 PM

Grateful Dead are like a wonderful, awesomely wild
Saturday Night
and ABB are the most glorious

I could never choose one or the other.
That would be like losing a limb,

BillyBlastoff - 11/16/2004 at 04:34 PM

First show was December 19th of '78. Never had such a good time. I has seen ABB a couple of times before that. The Dead were different for me. They had me from the first 'Half-Step'.

CowboyNeil - 11/16/2004 at 07:06 PM

I have seen the GD , JGB, P+F, KingFish, etc for more than 100+ shows but would not call myself a "Dead Head" because of the conotation that was associated after A Touch Of Grey. Seems like there is a huge Generation gap between older folks who went to shows in the late 60's and early 70's than the crowd I encounter today. Lots of cool young folks but some act like I owe them a ticket, something to eat or drink, and I am too old to step up and say FOK YOU when they act that way. Their mistaken!

Like I said lots of the young folks I see at shows are very cool and I enjoy meeting them at shows but there are quite a few who annoy the hell out of me,

Yeah, I like regular folks these days. I don't like being called a Dead Head either...I get called a "Dead Head in denial" by my Bro-in-law.


Daisymae - 11/16/2004 at 09:04 PM

definately a friend of the dead...


jeffs - 11/16/2004 at 10:52 PM

been a deadhead for twenty something yrs now...sundays are grateful dead sundays...i was a little angry that the band went out as The Dead...i think that after Jerry passed anything with the name relating to Grateful or Dead should be out of bounds...a true head would know that The Other Ones( which i thought was a cool name) should suffice as the band that we were looking for... i always thought of going to a Dead show as going to a high school dance with a really cool band playing....

musicalbeds - 11/18/2004 at 05:05 AM

I've been a Deadhead for twenty years...I never associated the title with a particular scent or style of clothing.

To me it was more like a feeling towards the band...I could have watched them play all night, every night. Same goes with some incarnations of the ABB...especially the Duane/Dicky periods and the Warren/Dicky periods...they're my favourites, with the new Hittin' the Note incarnation a close third, closing fast. Hittin' the Note is my favourite non-Duane album by far....


musicalbeds - 11/18/2004 at 05:31 AM

Deadhead stories;

I met this girl at the 91 RFK show where the Dead brought back Casey Jones. During the brouhaha that followed, everyone was hugging and grooving and this girl beside me turns to me and says; "This is like my first show in '89 where they brought back Darkstar. Everyone started freaking out...and I got scared and left."

Many years ago, I briefly met this couple through friends from Denver that sold doses. They talked about a night where the girl drank a glass of what she thought was water...and tripped out for three days. The girl didn't know her man was making sheets as the story goes, so the glass was full of pure liquid LSD... probably close to 800 hits maybe, or so she says. Her boyfriend takes over the narration at this point, telling me how he was trying to pacify her, keep her safe, all without the cops finding out. The girl looks at me and says "It was a bummer..I missed two shows". No worry for her mental health, just concern about missing two shows that she didn't have tickets for anyway.


toovakynd - 11/18/2004 at 05:53 AM

RFK '92 was the Casey Jones show-I remember because my wife fell in love with me that night...I didn't realize it quite then but she let me know later....

That Dark Star show must have been the Warlocks run at Hampton in Oct '89
They broke out a bunch of songs from retirement.
The most beautiful was Attics of My Life-really sweet harmonies.

It was also at Hampton in 1986 that they reintroduced Box of Rain- my brother was scratching his head wondering why everybody went nuts(after 13 years hiatus-duh!)
Then the next night they opened with Road Runner Blues- and all the Heads were
scratching their heads as my brother was going off for HUMBLE PIE!!!!!

otherhandmer - 12/2/2004 at 07:41 AM

Some of you may me familiar with this. It was in the Jerry Garcia tribute edition of Relix magazine right after Jerry died. Brings a happy tear to my eye every time I read it. If this doesn't put a Dead show in a capsule, I don't know what does.

A DEAD SHOW

You're greeted by hundreds of smiling faces,
And people living lives at their own paces.
They smile and wave and talk to each other,
Loving each one as their sister and brother.
In the background, there's the beating of a bongo,
Setting the mood for tonights show.
The different songs flowing into each other as if they were one,
As are the people who are there to have fun.
There is peace and happiness all around,
A break from the world many have found.
People who have flowers in their hair,
Don't want to judge you, only care.
People dance and listen as the music flows,
It's a different experience at every show.
I only wish life was a Dead show,
Where adults could escape pressure and children could grow.

-Stephanie Cuomo
