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!

Stu Nixon for DeadBase

Bring it!

I can think of hundreds of additions that could be included in a new addition. The only problem would be deciding what not to include. IE:
- Photos, Photos and more Photos (While I enjoyed the last edition's extensive '95 tour spread, I think it is time for some historic photo documentation throughout our long strange trip)
- Complete Jerry Base
- Complete Phil Base
- Complete Ratdog Base
- Well lets face it, complete everybody Base
- More venue charts
- Statistics out the wazoo
- Include available recordings of each show
- Hell, I would even welcome envelope art and other Deadhead artwork submittals
- Etc, Etc.

Doodah --

I just checked out the website for Deadbase and while it is user-friendly enough for most folks, I would still love for a new Deadbase to come out on recycled paper.

I'd buy a new edition...

Any chance of the message boards coming back to life?

I would love it. I have DB X and I love it. It has helped me immeasurably, when I am trying to do research on a show or just making labels for my CD. Plus it is cool to read the reviews.

Yes there is a need

Personally, when it comes down to it. I just absorb ALOT more when I have the actual book, or pages to unfold, in front of me. Thanks!

new book?

Is there really a need to print a new book? I find the website to be pretty helpful and friendly to the environment.
