Dead Tour 94 - Woodstock Sidetrip
Ahhh! where is she now?
Never had such a good time...........
Which? The bus or my ex wife?!!
"Once in a while you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right..."
I thought the same thing after reading Walstib's comment! ha ha
Air Cooled VW's are where it's at.
Yeah, I had to really squeeze my brain on that one! I read Walstib's post again and again... Finally, I couldn't resist! I HAD to post my mind!
I'm talking about the BUS.
to your ex of course!
Really, really nicely painted bus bro!
Really great pic of you and ? x-wife? Like the long hair and beard, and of course, the bus. I've owned a couple buses, way back in the 70's-80's, and had a '60 bug which my ex sold couple years back. I've promised myself to get another VW asap. The GD made everyone feel a part of their shows, a family thing. A good feeling. It's up to us to keep the good feeling going. Are you holding a guitar in your pic? My eyes don't always reflect to my brain what's really there, must be an age thing? I play acoustic dodah's and a cool drum my kids gave to me, which I use to dance around my home with my grandkids while the tunes are playing. Life is good
Amen to what you are saying about keeping it going...there has just been nothing else like what the Grateful Dead did, the feeling of family and community has since been umatched...still, I know that enough people still love the music and care about the whole feeling that it's not all "over" as so many people, including myself, thought when Jerry died.
My hubby was never able to go and see Jerry back in the days, but we've been able to go see the Dead up in San Jose a few years back, and Phil at Vegoose, and then Ratdog back in March at the Grove a year or so ago. The feeling wasn't quite the same as back then, but it was still beautiful and the music was still rockin'...I remember when there were the big drum circles and the triple decker buses and the rasta booths, sage everywhere, and on and on...the scene just feels so small now...course, I've only been to a few since Jerry passed on, and my bro that has gone to quite a few CA shows has said it's been a bigger scene in some places...the important thing is that the feeling is still there and alive and well~
We're trying to get some people together to go at least to the show in LA this spring - I heard it was on 5/09, and if we could be able to go up to Mountain View on 5/14, well, that would be just what we need right now...we'll just have to see. Being self-employed in this economy hasn't made it very easy to do much travelling...meanwhile, I'm just so glad to have found this site, because it reminds me that people all around the world are still "in tune"...and that people are still living their dreams...just going through some of these old pictures is like hopping in the car and going back in time...it was all so magical and special!!! I feel so blessed to have been able to have gone to any of the shows at all...
Anyways, don't mind me, as I tend to ramble on...take care all and have a great wintery day
wherever you may be...
