So many of photographer Jim Marshall’s images are iconic that I can just say “Janis backstage with a bottle of Southern Comfort,” or “Johnny Cash giving the finger,” or “Dylan rolling a tire down a Greenwich Village street,” and chances are you’ll know what photo I’m describing.
Back in the mid- and late 1980s, when my wife, Regan, and I used to put out a Grateful Dead fanzine called The Golden Road, our day jobs prevented us from going on the road as much as we liked, so we used to rely on friends to call and give us blow-by-blow show reports.
The New York Times has a great article about the Grateful Dead in this Sunday's edition. It's the perfect way to tune up and get ready for the tour that kicks off that same night in Greensboro. Click here for an online version.

Can anyone identify what CD this is? I bought a huge cd collection and there is more Dead/Garcia stuff that I ever thought could exist. There is no case or artwork with it but I do know the first song is Ripple, the second is Cumberland Blues and the 4th is Eyes of the World. Notice the number 6 (or 9?) at about 8 o'clock.

My tattoo i got on December 31st 2009. my very first tattoo at sixteen. my dad took me to go get it. nobody at the tattoo shop believed that a 16 year old listened to grateful dead and accualy loved them enough to permanently mark themselves with one of the bears from the dead
Yet another topic I can't believe we don't have already.
Lots of folks here are parents, and quite a few grandparents, too. How does the life-changing GD experience affect your life with the younger generations? What values do you try to transmit, and how's that turning out?

Last night (September 9, 2009), Mickey Hart performed in the Walter Cronkite Tribute at Lincoln Center. Hart first performed with Jimmy Buffett and then with Zakir Hussain and Sikiru Adepoju. Hart, Hussain and Adepoju (3/4 of The Global Drum Project) were also joined by saxophonist Paul Winter.
This is a photo I took of the group at the Mississippi River Festival. I was the staff photographer of the Granite City Press-Record newspaper at the time and covered many of the concerts at the outstanding outdoor venue.

Here is the second part of our adventure through 1970. All of the files are in SHN/FLAC. 4 DVDs of just about everything from 3/20-9/20 plus a CD of 3/8. As with all my SHN/FLAC vines let's keep this in lossless format only. Here are the files:
It's amazing how things turn out when you least expect it. Hartford was supposed to be my last show.. until i went to work on monday and in a state of total depression sent a text to my friend Jeanette asking if she was going to Tuesdays show... of course.... why? do you need a ticket?
Flew up to Chicago for the May 5th show. Totally blown away. Rocked my soul...Got up the next morning and went to the airport. Standing outside the terminal smoking a cigarette I look up and see this guy that looks like Mickey Hart. I look at him for a bit and still think he looks like him.
This is the oatmeal cookie guy with a couple of his buds from the other side of the planet. He was standing on the roof of his van with a megaphone at the end of the show...directly in front of one of the exits. 10,000 people pointed at the cookie. People would often search for the source of the sound, only to find it was him with a megaphone yelling at heads to buy the cookie. Good times.
This is a shot of some 'random' people walking around before the vegas show. It was a day of dirt devils running up and down shakedown. Crazy. Papers, shirts, patchoulii and yalangyalang vials flying up to the sky.
This tape circulates labled "LOM Mystery Tape". These songs are from the winter
or spring of '74, before Martin Fierro became a fulltime member. Supposedly
found in a vault unlabled by Dick Latvala. It is doubtful that all these songs
Pretty good review of the Grateful Dead at the old Metropolitan Sports Center, Bloomington, MN. The writer describes the crowd, a little band history and the concert.
This place was torn down about a year or two later along with Met Stadium when they built the Mall Of America. Not a very good building for acoustics but it was a hockey rink.

started by dstache Early '69 Part 1 Our good friend and fellow viner Hippy signed up for a vine on another site and offered me the opportunity to help him put together a vine of the music here. I received 2 DVDs filled to the brim with killer shows from early '69, one of my favorite eras, and perhaps the greatest.
Here is a picture of me lookin' pretty serious about something. Of course it could end up a picture of a lot of serious glass, or both. I'm with Bob Weir, I need a miracle everyday. Peace & Lots of Music
OK, Question? How do you introduce a young person to the great atmosphere of a G.D. Show, and in 2008? Well, we don't have a time machine so we took the VERY next BEST, and that was the NEW YEARS EVE Show in San Francisco. We traveled from Mount Shasta CA, made a three day/two night trip of it, and had a GREAT Time.

Sometime late 1983, Carlsbad, CA. Spent 2 years in Japan (1981-83 USMC) buying every piece of stereo equipment I could (the old saying for Okinawa is true...the only place you go broke saving money!!).

Get on the bus, we are going on a field trip to the wonderful land of Oregon. Put on your tye dye, splash on that pacthouli and sit back and enjoy the ride!
The Field Trip, Old Renaissance Faire Grounds, Veneta, Oregon - August 27, 1972
Tie dying revisited. My first attempt at tie dying 20 years ago didn't go so well. So I thought I would have another go at it. The results this time around were much better. Forgot how much fun it was, especially the anticipation of seeing the design.
Now why can't my job be like this? Before the Holmdel, NJ Ratdog show...tunes playing loud in the lot, happy people walkin' around, everyone treating each other respectfully and ALL anticipating Bobby and the boys to knock our socks off! They did a good job last night but the lyrics from "The Wheel" in the back of my mind..."...if the thunder don't get ya, then the lightning will!"
Finally, the cell phone camera actually helped! Looks pretty cool with the diffused spots. They play excellently and the company was the finest possible....just made me miss goin' to see "Our Guys" kickin' ass! The show they re-created that night was 4-3-1988, Hartford Civic Center.
Melissa did such an awesome job on my birthday cake, I just HAD to repay the favor!. Nowhere near the quality of her artwork but I had so much fun baking and decorating it. Everyone HAS to send her birthday wishes on 8/7/08, OK? Happy Birthday Melissa!!!!
