Ditto Garebear...I miss them too...take what you can get whenever you can...Ever seen the incarnation called DSO aka Dark Star Orchestra??? Close your eyes and I swear you will have the passion and drive of a full show...They tour all over the USA...I am lucky to have them stop by a once or twice a year here where I live in NC...
Shakedown, I need to get to a DSO show as they always swing through Pittsburgh.
What a fantastic article!!!!
There is plenty in here for you Dead haters as well.
Smelly hippies, directionless noodling and sloppy playing by the band, but the article will explain the phenomenon that is the Dead.
Although I miss going to shows and having so many magical experiences, 75 shows, and years of bootleg sessions, I feel like I have moveded on.
Sure I listen once in a blue moon to a song or two. I do know that the Dead led me towards some great Bluegrass , Alt. country, Blues, other Jam Bands, etc...
Yes...Many years on the bus...1983-1995... 125 shows w/Jerry..I refuse to grow up....The Dead have illuminated many lights for me along my path of life and I am most "GRATEFUL" for that aspect and truly love the music and the offsprings that have come along..The GD showed me to appreciate music and all of it delights regardless of it genre and to be open and passionate for what it has to offer to my soul....Getting up in age now, the music has conditioned me to not take the good vibe for granted and listen carefully to its sweet sound and find nothing more to do but smile smile smile :) :) :)
