Naw, Bill

Probably just the only one online. How long you been living in the big nickle? How's your weather?

I can't be the only head in Sudbury, could I?

New Book!

I posted this elsewhere but wanted to share with our thread too:
For all you heads in the academy, and for those of us struggling to follow along, I wanted to share my excitement at a new publication:

The Grateful Dead in Concert: Essays on Live Improvisation
Jim Tuedio, Stan Spector, eds
http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-4357-4

My partner, Brent Wood, contributed an essay entitled "The Eccentric Revolutions of Phil Lesh". It is a great piece of work and feels good to see it in print after hours of conversation, listening and writing. He's already published an essay on Robert Hunter's poetry and psychedelic experience and is currently tackling the subject of Jerry & tragedy. These pieces will hopefully appear as a whole book in future.

This book is carefully put together with foreword by Stanley Krippner and contributions by Meriwether, Spector, and the usual suspects as well as others. Great writing, nice organization (tuning, first, 2nd, 3rd sets, encore...) and good ideas. Reads like a show. Enjoy!

Nice!

Hi Neighbour,

About the camp site - great!

Your jam sounds awesome - I would have loved to plug in too!!! It reminds me I really must find other Dead fans in town to Jam with. Another fun to-do!

I'm playing around with Dear Mr. Fantasy and Estimated Prophet at the moment. This morning thought perhaps a little KINKS might be nice too. "You really got me" or "All day and all of the night" for a little rockin' addition to my repertoire...perhaps....

Have a good one,

Haven't heard of them or the venue before - hope it's fun!

My buddies play in a GDead cover band in Toronto - Caution Jam. http://www.cautionjam.ca
Looks like their next show is on the 24th @ Grossman's, TO. Their Penetang boat cruise is, supposedly a blast.

I, too, was jamming Sunday night, impromptu at my place. My neighbour Joe brought together a jam so fast that I didn't know if I was going or coming =) Bass, guitars, piano & drums, we pulled off some nice Scarlet>Fire, Playin, Sugaree, among others.

I used to be in a group called Zen Again, and later a one-off as the Dreadful Great. I'm threatening to pull together another GDead project, but I'll probably just keep jamming with my various dead-crazy friends.

Campsite's right next to yours, Playin', on the night before and night of the show. Looks like fun!

Rose Garland - Cover Band

Hi all,

Well I was trying to track down a Canadian Grateful Dead Cover Band. A band called Rose Garland is playing at the Harball in MIlton, Ontario on April 17th. Anyone planning to go? Has anyone been to one of their shows?

Looking forward to playing too!

Hi K,

Looking forward to playing with you too! I had a great jam yesterday afternoon in the sun at my house as my kids and some of their friends ran around the yard and house. Some days it just flows.....yesterday was one of those.....it just flowed with no effort at all. Deal, Goin' DTR, BIODTL, FriendOTD, Fire on the M, Bird Song, SugarM, Dark Star, Ripple, Box of Rain.

I keep getting more excited about the show too. Listened to a Shakedown Street podcast and they played some recent FURTHER. The China Doll was so soulful....nice!

Enjoy your long weekend.....our weather looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so I bumped into some buddies in town and they say that they bought seats to ArtPark, so maybe there actually were seats but must have sold out right away. Didn't mean to give you false hope, Playin... I'm keen to mill around the lawn, and supposedly it's a small venue anyway, so the lawn won't be too far from stage view. It's all good as far as I'm concerned!

I'll be booking a site at Four Mile Creek this weekend. Looking forward to the jam!

Booked spot #171 Four Mile Creek Campground

Hi K and all,

There are lots of campsites (looks like most still available). Hope you others will consider camping at that park too! I have picked a non-electric site. I will have my acoustic bass guitar with me and would love to play with any of you who come by or just hang out around the fire for those without instruments. Oh boy, camping, bonfires, acoustic jamming and experiencing Further and other Deadheads......well if I have to....the sacrifaces we must make....

I am hoping my wonderful wife will be able to join me. Though, she is taking a course this summer (May to July) on teaching kindergarden with the hopes this will give her a leg up on getting a job. Anyway if she can't join us I will still be there perhaps with a cousin or friend in tow.

I'm so looking forward to it. When I think of it, it makes me smile. The anticipation is almost alone worth the price. :)

Anyway, I hope more of you head to ArtPark. The outdoor venue looks beautiful.
