Just found this site. I've been living in Shanghai for the last 5 years. Wednesday night's at Oscars, you can tune in to some acoustic Dead, Neil and others. Come out and support the cause.

the other one in korea

Hey ya'll, another fine feathered friend in Seoul. I got a message this morning that there is a rumoured dead cover band here, and I finally got a lock down on one of their shows. They play the rocky mountain tavern in Itaewon on December 8th. I'm normally not in for cover bands (DSO I love of course) but over here any kind of water is gonna taste like wine, so I'll be there for sure.
If anyone's in Seoul and interested in going, hit me up with a message at

10 years gone

I recall the morning I was awoken by my mother calling from afar, I had just returned from Phish Tour recently and had a party at my parents house the night before and only fell asleep at about 7am and she called me at noon or somewhere around this time and told me to turn on the T.V. (I was 20 yrs old) She said that she was very sorry and she would call back later on. I said, ok why mom what's wrong? She said Greg please just turn on the T.V. and then I will call you back later on. I hung up the phone and immediately turned on CNN and found out that Jerry Died. I went through my process and continued to have a party at my house and broke every boundary and invited everyone I knew within the scene. This day lives with still today as it does you. Please check out this feed from YouTube. This is why I love Jerry as he was enjoying something that I am now just discovering.

good to be in touch...

Thanks marye, it's great that you're doing this here...

E-mail sent to gespacho jones...

Isn't it such a tragedy that the GD never came over for an Asian tour?
Imagine, Tokyo Osaka Busan Seoul Beijing Xian Shanghai HongKong Bangkok Singapore...
maybe more -- what a great tour to follow it would've been... at least Northeast Asia.
And still now, neither 'The Dead' nor Ratdog nor Phil& will do it... don't know if they
ever even consider it... I sure wish they would!

Deadheads in Korea

Hey Now -- are there any other kind-folk in Korea (south, of course) besides me?

I'm originally from Michigan, but have been living over here for more than 20 years -- missed a lot of great late-era GD shows by doing so, but did make it back to San Francisco for a few, once in awhile -- and during all this time i did not neglect to build up my tape/CD collection -- could now be the biggest one in Asia except for (masonskids) in Singapore [hi, Tim!], for all i know... Anyway i'm hangin' in Seoul now, playing the Academic game... If there are any other Deadheads now in Korea, let's get together -- drop me a note at this login-name at yahoo-dot-com. And if any deadheads come over here for tourist or business visit, or a semester of study or tour of army duty, whatever, do get in touch and i'll be pleased to play "host" for you a little, give you some orientation....

Keep On Aikoin'!

'nother in China

long after the band leaves the stage, the music played on. it's a delight to once again join the community that touches deep, even from Shanghai China.

There ain't no boundaries 'xcept for the ones we place on ourselves.

My interaction with the music and the community is sporadic and often unplanned in the post-performing years. Yet, when it happens, it's powerful and feels good. This is one of those....

Peace Love and Understanding
