    Furman's a good story
    Thanks Janet for sharing all that stuff about the beginnings of sound reinforcement and how you were involved in inventing and tweaking the various electronic gizmo's that musicians use to craft the art of music. I learned a ton about the history of sound and the Bay Area from your unique point of view and enjoyed all the details about the family way-back-when. Best wishes for all good things!

    Furman Sound and its Grateful Dead roots
    Read the story of how I founded pro audio company Furman Sound with a helping hand from the Grateful Dead. It all began in 1970 when I was hired by Alembic as a guitar amp tech. I was the person who modified Jerry's Twin Reverbs, and all kinds of other guitar and bass amps belonging to the Dead and other San Francisco musicians of that era. Later on, I went on the road with the Dead to do live recording, along with Betty Cantor-Jackson and Wizard (Dennis Leonard). You can find my name on the Europe 72 recordings, the Sunshine Daydream movie, and other stuff from that time. After that... well, you can read the rest at http://furmanhistory.com/ Don't worry, it's not a book-length memoir. It's only got the good stuff. You can read the whole thing in 15 minutes.

Google searching (does anyone Yahoo search anymore?!) for Grateful Dead displays the following: "about 6,180,000" However, did you know that using quotes narrows down what you're really looking for? Case in point -- about 1,550,000 for "grateful dead". (Much easier to look through a million and a half web pages than 6 million, isn't it?!) Anyway, I only bring this up 'cause some people don't actually know that if you type in Jerry Garcia you might get TONS of sites that have absolutely NOTHING to do with Captain Trips. But if you use quotes, my friends, you will magically be given better results!! Have a Grateful Dead!

Hi all, I enjoyed 's tip on using quotes. As a librarian, I've learned a lot about searching Google. And one thing I've done is to construct a custom search engine (This Old Engine) for Grateful Dead topics. It's located at http://arts.ucsc.edu/gdead/agdl/thisoldengine.html Always happy to add new sites for the engine to peruse... --David

we, your humble mods, take a dim view of forum spamming. People are welcome here, including notorious spammers of other forums. They are not welcome to be disruptive, clutter topics with nonresponsive posts (except of course in the topics that are designated areas for nonresponsive posts, e.g. Spinnin'...), and bother folks.

HiI am ARCHURE, I do quick load (less than 1 min/song download time with dial up) DIGITAL MUSIC, and my music has greatly been influenced by the Dead, as well as other S.F. area musicians from the same era. I have met some members of the Grateful Dead, on various occasions, and had some good chats with them. I had a great chat with Jerry, about and Indian ritual I read about (in the college of marin library), where one pretends to die, then moves away for a number of years, and we chatted about this, Jerry thought this was very interesting. One may possibly come back to Haunt you. I had a great discussion with Phil regarding sound systems, with speakers in phase, and he might have said something about different band members getting different spots on the main graphic equalizer. I used to chat with Bill too. And several of us (including Bob Weir) were talking about recording vocals over instrumentals with headphones vercus listening to speakers, and what a difference that makes with pitch. I do like the Dead vocals, and I play quite a bit like Jerry, I know some Jerry like riffs,(and also do Led Zepelin and Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton and BB King, and Mike Bloomfield, and Elvin Bishop, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother, style of things too). I gave the Grateful Dead astrological advice to help them get their European Tour going (mid 70's) and when they got it together (they came back to thank me, it worked, I also helped Joe Montana, he too was impressed), I gave them a list of Good Days for the band before the tour. I HAVE LOTS OF GOOD ORIGINAL MUSIC (QUICK LOAD) and lots of GOOD ADVICE: Nutrition, Psychology (including sex), Web Advcie, and ASTROLOGICAL articles and Astro Forecast all at www.archure.net I got a Trademark on ARCHURE upon the advice of members of The Dead and members of Van Halen (who both had trademark issues with their names). I have good friends (old friends) who know members of The Dead more than I do. I am Grateful for their good vibes, and good music, and especially like their Improvisational Music. I too am into Improvisational Music at www.archure.net Music for the New Millennium by ARCHURE reg tmrk www.archure.net

http://zippyblogs.freeforums.org/portal.phpThe Grateful Dead was the greatest show on earth. From 1965 to 1995 the boys played one of popular culture’s most extraordinary epic adventures. Jerry Garcia once said "Maybe one day we can build something that can never be torn down". Huge caravans of people would travel to every show on the tour and you would see the same smiling faces at each show. It was a community and a family. You could arguably say that that community and family is still alive and in full force today even 12 years after Jerry Garcia's death. The Phil Zone was a place you could space out and listen to the music knowing everyone was there to do the same. A safe space to the left of the stage right below base player Phil Lesh. He just so happened to be my favorite member of the group so I spent much of my time there grooving to the music. Years later I think about that time with many smiles and memories. I still go to his solo shows and see the same people in the same spot. One day I was having one of these flashbacks and I decided to search for a simple phrase on the excite search engine. This was before google was widely popular. The year was 1999 and I was looking for tour dates and news. I found a web page called The Philzone which had what I was looking for. About three years later in 2002 I clicked on a link on that page that said community and found a discussion group. I was floored. It was the community I knew from the shows online discussing all manner of topics including my favorite band The Grateful Dead. Here it is 5 years later and Ive found at least 6 other discussion groups like it including my own. A couple of those pages are restrictive about what you can and cannot post there. I'm all about free speech so you can say whatever you feel the need to say on my site. We have a few rules but nothing that a mature adult cannot handle. Believe it or not deadheads are fun to hang out with. We welcome all manner of people to come hang with us and share ideas about music, love and life. Some times you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

http://www.setbreakmusic.com/drupal/GDtimeline.php Browse through 1,500 SBD & Matrix recordings and listen to any show. Filter by date/location or enter a song title in the full-text search box. Select a show to see the setlist and click on the "listen" icon to launch the music player. Most shows include song lyrics and performance-specific notes ("bobby on acoustic", "final version", "santana opened").

Archive.org seems to be a legal source of dead recordings, no? I'm almost sure that they're okay to use, considering that they're backed by such a large non-profit, but I thought I should check here. Can anyone verify their legality? Thanks, and sorry if my post is inappropriate in this forum, I haven't seen one quite like this before. er.

Hello everyone, I've just launched a new website to display live concert photos I've taken over the past 30+ years. Although the site is still under construction, with lots more photos to come, I thought I'd invite everyone here at Dead.net to take an early look around. There's several Grateful Dead shows from the '70's already uploaded, with photos from Red Rocks and Telluride in the '80s to come. There's also some Phil and Bob solo shows and lots more. To take a look, point your browser to http://www.billallenphotos.com. Enter the site, click on Gallery, then click on Music and scroll down to the Grateful Dead links. Enjoy!!

You should check out the wonderful 3-D simulated shrine to Everything Dead in Second Life (secondlife.com) There is a sim called Darkstar, a loving tribute to the Grateful Dead that features an amphitheater complete with the "wall of sound", a parking lot with Further style buses, surrounding the Mars Hotel. There is also the beautiful Terrapin Station dancehall, modeled after the building from the Terrapin Station Limited Edition release. The island streams GDRadio 24/7 except during events such as special archival streams and live streaming performances by many of the musically talented residents. It is the most loving tribute to the legacy of the Grateful Dead I have ever seen. With Darkstar Deadheads have an opportunity to spend time in a virtual 3-D universe where the tour never ends and the lot never closes, where there is always another show, another drum circle, where the music TRULY never stops. Ever!

I've just launched a new comedy story website http://www.dredly.com 2 Deadheads go on a quest to rid the world of evil and find comfortable footwear... But mainly to find comfortable footwear. On the way they take on psychotic moustaches, shape-shifting polar bears, Swiss killer gnomes, evil children’s entertainers and surveillance pigeons. And don't worry, this isn't a bit of clever corporate viral marketing, just me and my illustrator, so if you want trippy laughs, go to http://www.dredly.com Hope to see you there... And if you like it, tell everyone you know!! Please. Pigeons work in pairs!
