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

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.

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....

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 ?

Laters On
Be Blessed

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.

Grateful Dead are like a wonderful, awesomely wild
Saturday Night
and ABB are the most glorious
Sunday Morning
that I've ever seen.
I could never choose one or the other.
That would be like losing a limb,
or having to choose between one parent or the other. Impossible for me...
Besides, there is such a fine line between ....
....Satu
rdayNightandSundayMorning....
....
they melt together too perfectly....

Damn, I'm back on the bus again. I just flashed back to 85 when I had my big frow and huge sideburns...."I Break for Hallucinations" bumpersticker on the back of 72 Duster wired for sound... Sleeping in parking lots living out some kind of fantasy dream catching the wave of some enormous entity straight out of...why is everyone staring at me? There is something more to this...isn't there?

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.
