My band, Dwarf Rat, plays two acoustic sets Thursday in honor of Jerry's birthday. If you're in Bakersfield, come on by King Tut's Restaurant . We play from 6:30-8:30.

Tonight is the GD movie all across the country.

I miss that fat man noodling away in the Warfield. Some great nights were had there.


Ill bore you with this story.

The last time I went to see Jerry play it was at the Warfield. I had prep'd myself for a long night of song and dance and was tuned up well before the band had tuned up. Im standing on the isle on the first rise above the floor level front and center.

I am jazzed up to say the least. I loved the Jerry band more than the Dead and well I saw my first Dead run at Laguna Seca circa 87 and the next shows I saw were 20 Jerry shows the first run was the tour with Clarence Clemons, and then a bunch of Grisman/ Garcia, and then more Jerry.

The theater is filling up and I am excitied about three nights of Jerry. I'm solo the first night and its about to happen when the curtain opens and a man comes out on stage and proceeds to drop an atomic bomb of bad news on my already primed up head.

he proceeds to tell us the show is cancelled due to the fact jerry had touched a sea urchin and had an infection and could not play.

BUUUUUUMMMMMERRRRRRR. They let us hang out for a few hours to de tune but in the end all three nights were cancelled and well I never saw him again.

Happy Birthday Jerry miss the great music and like I heard you say a thousand times.

" The Music Never Stopped"

It hasnt! RIP and 70 he had so many good years left.

I cant believe he has been gone almost 20 years now.

Or half a cup of rock and rye...
There's always red grenadine too...
or a gin fizz...

Interestingly enough, last time I was at that theatre on the flanks of the tenderloin, Mr Charlie got boots stompin and the joint jumpin.

It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free,
There's nothing you can hold, for very long.
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind,
It seems like all this life was just a dream.

One of the best days in my life was during a run at Telluride. It was mid-summer in 87 and I took the lift up to the top with a close friend. We descended the back side of Gold Hill and climbed the steep North ridge of Palmyra Peak (13,000+) and dropped acid on the summit. The incredibly beautiful Sneffels range was spread out in all it's glory before us. We descended from the sharp summit about 35 feet, donned our skis and ripped it up down perfect corn through a long, classic 2000 foot couloir, schussing our way down the Bear Creek drainage, laughing the whole way, to the Aspen forest. We took off our skis and descended the switch backs, as we drew nearer and nearer town the band started playing down below, and Jerry's guitar was drifting up through the woods to us. We "missed" the first couple of songs of the first set, but enjoying them floating upwards as we were coming down the trail, the green glowing forest around us, sunburned, happy and high was even better than being inside. We dumped our packs at the gate and went in and danced the evening away. Awesome day.

Pate Grateful Dead Bump!
