Grateful Dead

The Dead Covers Project

What a wonderful month it's been, sharing our love of the Grateful Dead through song and video! We applaud all the hard work and effort that you, the fans, put into the DEAD COVERS PROJECT, and we hope you'll continue to watch and support all the amazing participant videos on YouTube until we fire up the DEAD COVERS PROJECT again next February.

Throughout the month of April, we'll be shining our lovelight on a handful of artists that really made the grade. You'll get to know each of these five artists and find out just what made them connect with the Dead in our exclusive DEAD COVERS PROJECT profiles, but for now we'd simply like to congratulate the following participants (in no particular order)...

Now Playing In The Band...

The project may be over for 2012, but you can continue to check out some of the "Top Rated" videos that were submitted and "Like" them here.

GD cover project

I think it's appropriate, and perhaps even long overdue. Given the difficulty of finding people who can play Grateful Dead songs at all, other than campfire versions of simpler things. Since living in or near a city is almost a pre-requisite for playing any kind of rock, let alone alternative music, it's gonna be a mighty hard row to hoe for me, but it doesn't say specifically you have to have a band. I spent from January through July trying to put a group together, out here in the California gold country foothills, all to no avail, so someone will have to suffer through, however briefly, my solo attempts, because this is TOO FREAKIN' GOOD to pass up. Having said that out loud, I will now of course find myself working overtime through the next Further tour.

Everybody that can play - get out and do this - it'll be Go-o-od for you!

One more from DOG GONE

Since the Dead covered this Dylan tune AND released a live cut of it (Postcards from the Hanging), I guess that means it falls under the general rules of "either written by or recorded by the Dead." At least I hope it does :)

Here's DOG GONE's version of SHE BELONGS TO ME.

DOG GONE

Local L.A. band DOG GONE has covered a number of Dead tunes. The core of the band has always been Daniel Raznick and Hal Masonberg on lead guitar and rhythm guitar respectively. I've posted some of our Dead covers up on Youtube. Since each incarnation of the band has a somewhat different sound, I've posted a couple of versions of our EYES OF THE WORLD-> BIRD SONG as they are, truly, two different animals. Plus, one is video of us live, while the other is also from a live gig, but the image is some fun psychedelic imagery to accompany the sounds. Same with the SCARLET BEGONIAS. Some of our faves. Enjoy:
