yea,
i recently encountered a dear friend
on some obscure climbers path.
we were both dust, stoned, and beautiful.

i had my dog, cho.
paul had left cedar behind.

we obviously were both elated at the semingly random
convergence of two losts along disorganized trails;

so we attempted a crude high five,
we missed and my pinky collided with his elbow
and he smiled, anyway.

we discussed the proper salutation in these type cituations,
and i told him next time,

black my eye.

for they're difficult to come by, these days.

Way back in the olden days, My pals and I , the Sony Brothers, put together some taper tshirts...this was 77 or 78. Taping wasn't yet "legal" so we fancied ourselves as outlaw recorders back then. I did the artwork for several dozen shirts that I assumed were lost to the sands of time. Not so. One showed up on ebay! I'm collectable!

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...

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."

That was my first show. It was Pigpen's last. I enjoyed it immensely.

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...

Phil and his buddy did Seastones music live during the '74 Wall of Sound shows. I have. Picture of the WOS I took in Fresno that summer. I also have all the newsletters sent after I responded to the "Deadheads Unite!" inquiry inside Skullf*#k. They would send pressings of all the Round Records releases and 4x4 color cards of each album cover.
