DeadBase Needs Your Help!

Posted: February 8, 2010 - 5:59pm

Just got this from Stu Nixon, who asks me to pass it on to the Dead.net community:

DeadBase Returns! And we’re looking for a little help from our friends…

We're back! Or at least we're thinking about it... By popular demand we are in the process of determining the feasibility of publishing a new edition of DeadBase and are looking for some help. While a totally revised DBXII is still a possibility for the future, right now we are considering putting out a reprint of DBXI with an appendix of corrections and additions to the setlists. While we are looking into the logistics of printing and distribution (can you say Amazon?) we are putting the word out to gather missing data.

That’s where you come in. We know that folks have found errors in the setlists since the last version of DeadBase came out in 1999, and we want to include a list of corrections in the new book. All proposed changes will be reviewed and evaluated, and contributors will be acknowledged in the new edition.

Please send corrections along with rationale / justification to:

deadbasecorrections@comcast.net

Thank you!

I'd say send Stu a message at the above address. If it bounces, holler and I'll pursue it.

Living mystery that casts its shadow in the lines of this book

A revival of Deadbase- Yes! My DeadBase is so worn, I would love to have the opportunity to buy a new edition. The fact it will be updated with set list corrections is like a bunch of sweet cherries on the grateful sundae. I also hope dead.net broadcasts the news if, or when it's available. Thanks for all your efforts

Hey, Stu Nixon!

Are you guys gonna do this or what? I think a limited edition of 10,000 copies would be about right. The dead.net store could carry it. Amazon could carry it and it could sell retail in probably 50 select locations across the country -- including in crispy Brattleboro, VT, near to where some of you guys live, I think. That way you don't use extra paper that will never be treasured.

I still have my 1995 DeadBase Jr. with the inserts of the 1995 shows, but it sits in a zip-lock baggy with the pages reproduced at a local copy shop. In my edition (strictly for myself, mind you) the second page has trippy script that says: "This is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago".

DeadBase rocks! We want a new one and we want it now!

I really Hope DB 12 is still in the works??

I had my DB XI stolen(I'd also owned X) and when I attempted to replace it the only ones I could find were upwards of $300-$500!!!

Please make an updated Edition

Thank You,

Love it!

I'd love to see a new edition! Would it include more recent bands like Furthur and The Dead? and Garciabase!? Anyway, I'd buy sevral copies for friends who missed the boat when it was being published before.

I emailed Deadbase...

Me:

Hey there,

Saw a post in the Dead.net forum about a possible DeadBase revival. I have never owned a copy, but I would certainly love to see it revived again. How's the plan been working out?

Anything I can do to help!

Nathan,

"Long Dead"

Hello Nathan,

It's a long, slow process but we're moving forward on the new book step by step.

Stay tuned, and thanks for your interest.

Great to see that the plan is slowly coming together!
