Can I join in? Fellow Dead Heads are a rare breed here in the UK...

...The Sun will shine in my back door someday,
March Winds will blow all my troubles away...

...I wish I was a headlight, on a North bound train,
I'd shine my light through the cool Colorado rain...

Welcome Baron!!

Deadheads are welcome no matter where they're from.

Cheers Survival.

As a Potholer I always liked this one:

I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine,
Than to be at home alone and knowin' that you're gone,
Would cause me to lose my mind...

i was just standing there,
sticking the spindle into the throat of
my hyper-disaster...

(figuratively, folks. i don't really think
this way, yet. though i might someday,
you know, just to un-know well for a spell
so i gotta aspire back to common)

i working out- call.
shed-uling work.. pain is all mine,
i've enviable bills to exchange,
though my johns always beg me to
charge more.

really. they are absolutely astounded by my bytes
so am i. i can't believe myself
i'll never enjoy my potential...

im anti-authoritarian, not by moral inclination,
more just by stupidity...

anyway, my hummingbird aims his plight right in front of me.
im talking like inches from my face...

he, or maybe she, is like to think that he see's me
in herself. and we, together
in our essence hummingbird is staring into
my eyes, and he tells me,
that im a flower.

i know he's not gay.
i mean, the aviary's eyes.
and im a flower in my client's confused perception.

let me take a pull from my natural light,

i am in my own eyes a simultaneous tragedy-miracle.

Nice graphics Mr. Weege . . . oh yeah, the jam is outrageous as well.

Thanks Brother . . . perhaps we'll get on the rock one day, maybe I'll meet you at the jubilee or on the run . . . not in a cave up in the hills or some West LA Fadeaway.

Do you remember the first Grateful Dead song you ever heard?

Help on the Way.

At eight years old, little did I know what I was in for!

Holy cow, you be Young boy!



My brother used to play nothing but GD. I hated it. Uncle John's this, Ripple that.

The worst was that one with the purple album cover (thank god Phil later made one in white).


In '72, we had box seats at Hollywood Bowl. I was 14... Garcia was a black dot, a young kid with a pony tail played the other guitar. Pig Pen sat on an amp all night long, it was his last show.

The only thing I remember is Casey Jones, and then "We'll be right back."

Not me though, I never came "back."

What I do remember is the day "Ugly Rumors" got released.
Also known as Mars Hotel, the second record on GD Records (can you name the other two?).

We took a copy back to my house, and put together all the speakers in the house and cranked the thing UP! Side one, so great to hear the new tunes. Then Side two. But oh-ho. We started to get serious feedback, and thought we'd fried the amp.

Ugh, nope. Just Unbroken Chain and a joke played by Phil. Man, that was a day.


I have all 10 Rounder Records. The first one is Rum Runners, followed by the Kingfish studio album. Old and In the Way is another. Anybody remember Pistol Packin' Mama or the Keith and Donna album? Seastones?? Yeah, that's quite a diverse collection of song books...

On the day that I was born, my Daddy sat down and cried . . . I had the mark just as plain as day, it could not be denied . . .
