UC Santa Cruz slated to get

UC Santa Cruz slated to get archives of Grateful Dead

04/23/2008 7:06 PM, AP

Dancing bears, meet the Banana Slugs.

The surviving members of the Grateful Dead are turning over the rock band's archives to the University of California at Santa Cruz. The archive will hold the band's correspondence and other memorabilia, but not its recordings, longtime band spokesman Dennis McNally said Wednesday.

Ex-Dead guitarist Bob Weir and drummer Mickey Hart will announce a partnership with the university Thursday. The announcement will take place at San Francisco's Fillmore Auditorium, where many of the band's legendary shows were held.

A spokesman for UC Santa Cruz would not comment on the details of the deal ahead of Thursday's planned announcement.

news conference and BILLY???

I heard a really disturbing piece of news today which I HOPE I misconstrued, and got the wrong meaning, but is sounded like I was being told that Billy Kreutzmann (or someone close to him) had passed away?!?!?!? I felt punched...I have been praying and prayin that this is untrue and have not heard anything else since, that is close to this information but I'll keep checking back and make sure to have my wife watch that press conference... GOD BLESS and LONG LIVE the STRANGE THAT REMAIN!!!!

Addendum to GD Archives

Apologies for the double posting earlier...

Question: does anyone know if we DeadHeads/fans/collectors of stuff can submit additional material to the archives at UCSC? I have my own (relatively small) stash -- much of it from the parking lot scene ('83-'95), such as flyers I traded, tape covers, stickers, news clippings, photos, etc. I'd bet that many other 'Heads do also and may be willing to share. Just a thought...

This is terrific news! As one who has worked in the museum/curation field (studied pre-historic puebloan/cliff-dweller cultures in the southwestern U.S.) and as a DeadHead, I cannot wait to peruse the archives! Wink, a nod and a high five to Eileen. Way to go!
