Grateful Dead Press Conference
Grateful Dead Press Conference To Announce Partnership With UC Santa Cruz
The conference is over. We will be putting it up permanently on this page as soon as we get it.
(NOTE: Contrary to rumor, this has nothing to do with any sort of Dead reunion or tour)
so what are we looking at...as scholars and deadheads? a museum, a deadicated concert/museum venue?
a full release of all remastered shows in itunes style on dead.net?
come one, how can you say there is an announcement and NOT think everyone will think it is about a reunion...when it is probably about music releases or such...
that is cruel and unusual punishment and is unconstitutional according to the 8th amendment, so go ahead and just tell us now...ok?
While not wanting to jump the claim of the people holding the press conference, it might be handy to deflect some speculation, allay some fears, etc:
1. There will be NO announcement of a tour, one-off-gig or reunion of any kind. This is not about an upcoming musical event.
2. There is NO immediate time-valued urgency here, as in "if I don't know about this, I'm gonna miss out on something big!"
3. The press conference concerns past history more than future events, but it will be an announcement that scholars and fans of GD history will welcome enthusiastically.
I will leave the rest for the announcers to announce.
While most blog/posts are about re-uniting Bobby & Phil - I trust it is not BAD news about the health of any remaining members. Somebody speculated about further Vault releases, if that be the case then I will be able to upgrade my collection with some soundboards replacing those treasured AUD recordings I have been listening for many moons. Or maybe............
we will have to wait & see..................

That is easy for me! I say Kimock, Seals and Hornsby! I can only wish.........
Trey - always more tech and less soul in my opinion. My vote would be for Kimock/Karan OR, ultimate choice but not likely - hello, Jorma?
Keys? Bruce. Course, he's escaped the bad JuJu so far, so maybe he'd rather keep his distance... What's TC up to?
All speculation of course. The press conference is probably about something minor, like another show at the pyramids or something.
How about Melvin on Keys Trey on guitar!
everyone must return their obama t-shirts, for the band has changed party affiliation.
why not through Trey A. on lead while we are at it?
Ok this will drive me nuttz till Thursday but lets expand this theory a little more. IF the boys come back together as GD IF they announce a tour WHO will play Keys? and WHO would you like to see play keys? any thoughts?.
Walk in Peace, and let the smilin' begin
