Anyone have the Lyrics (or a full audio/video link) to 'Mama was a Deadhead', by the Rev Billy C Wirz, google search has been problematic....

my first regular climbing partner was a dead head; and he owned a car. Every f*#king weekend - year round - we'd do a long road trip to somewhere in the Pac NW, and the whole way he'd be smoking pot and listening to Dead music on his 8 track. I don't smoke pot, and I never really got the Dead stuff. oh well. got lots of climbing done. ha

and all my friends these days are ex- dead heads.

I just saw the title of this thread and thought it read the "Dead Horse Thread." But that would be about 1/3 of threads recently. LOL!

I've never been much of a Dead fan, but I do appreciate them. Had one back in the day who was (or at least claimed to be) in close with the band. What a crowd that was. You could always find their floor and room at trade shows by the huge billows of hippie lettuce smoke oozing out of it!

An ex dead head is better than a dead X head.




Man am I glad my brother never cut off my ring finger!

Norweege-
classic that you bumped this thread with that Kesey reading,
as Pate and I were JUST talking about that two days ago.
Now THATS some headly sh#t right there.

This is post #87, fitting.
I started seeing the Dead in 87 and climbing too.

The day Jerry died I was sitting in my van in Prescott when
a breeze could be heard whispering through
the pines.
When the zephyr neared
the windchimes on the porch started playing along with
the music in my van,
synchronized perfectly with Eyes of the World.

First concert (of any type) I attended was the last Winterland Show New Years 78/79. I was 16. My friend David and I drove down from our weekend/holiday job at Royal Gorge straight to the concert. It went all night, beginning with the Blues Brothers, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. In the morning they served breakfast, then bid us all farewell. Then the pleasant buzz turned sour as we started seeing a lot of broken glass on the streets, and sure enough, young and dumb we didn't foresee the obvious feast for thieves, came back to my car emptied of all our gear, skis, even my climbing pack and camera. Big bummer. Great show though!

They stole my box of 70 eight track tapes while at a Crosby, Stills, & Nash concert in Denver (the same guys??)
Probably did me a favor (still have my cassettes FWIW)

I started seeing the Dead in 87, too. I was the baby in this pre-show family photo. Dylan and the Dead somewhere, some time in 87. Last show for me was MSG, September 1994.

The day Jerry died was the first time I saw my dad cry.

I caught the Dead this summer in Mountain View. It was...interesting to say the least. It reminded me of childhood a bit.

EDIT: Said hello to Zane there, too. Just to say, he is alive and well. Here's a weird one, from Kesey's friend, Ken Babbs: http://www.skypilotclub.com/

Those of us who aren't "in the know" - perhaps 98% of the readership - might be interested in knowing who is in the photo above....

Oh my gosh, this is frickin' hilarious:


Hasn't our own Dave Diegelman seen this??? I don't see a Double D post here! Someone tell him!

Jerry, Pipgpen, Lesh, Weir, Kreutzmann from left to right in the picture.
Saw Pigpen's last show as my first at the Hollywood Bowl in 1972.

Hey Maysho-
Are you aware that the Winterland show you saw
is available on DVD? Classic stuff.

...the weather down here, so fine.

Remember www.speedingarrow.net ? Is there a mirror site somewhere? I miss access to all those great soundboards.

miss the whole scene. preshow parking lot
gatherings were unique. reconnecting with
heads. saw some bizzare things.

at a show in seattle i never felt the ground
after i left the parkinglot.

at one show
some guy (i think) was skippin' around handing
out handfuls of fungus for free from
a backpack..

tho not a confirmed head, 15 or so shows,
was well on my way 'till jerry left
us for some other biz.

the only times i felt like i
was truly part of a tribe.

good times.
