this is the guy once referred to as Jerry's favorite guitarist. excellent chance to see a master in a really intimate setting.
Our annual SoL party is coming up for its fifth year, and this year's party is looking to be the best so far. We've got Deadicace on Saturday and Sunday, and an NRPS covers band (the Blue Devils) coming on before them on the Sunday, plus Nick Harper (son of Roy), Roger Wootton and Glenn Goring from the legendary Comus, Martin Stephenson of the Martin Stephenson and the Daintees, The Higher State, and loads more.
Check out our Summer of Love party (www.solparty.org.uk) if you're in the UK in July. It's the best Deadhead party this side of the Atlantic (and maybe even both sides).
3 months left? then you should definitely go to "Playing In The Band", the premiere deadhead event in germany.
Greets from Germany! Still 3 months here and then off to Canada!
Hey all ~ good vibes from SW19 London, roots in South Africa, family left for California in 87', first show Great Western Forum 1989-02-10, live and work in London, going to California eventually someday.
Nice to have the Cosmic Charlies here, seen them just once and if I could I would see them more. They sound great.
~ Hits River Junction at seventeen to,
At a quarter to ten you know it's travlin' again ~
as Bro Esau said why not join Eurotraders and leave a message there. I know there is there is one dead head there (who is also here from time to time ) who lives in the Dumfries area!
you probably want to get on the yahoo group "eurotraders" and in particular contact with "workingman's deed", the scottish dead cover band.
At the end of April 2011 I am going with my girlfriend to Annan in Dumfries to visit her family. I have never been to Scotland and I thought it was be really fun to meet you Scottish Deadheads. My name is Larry and I live in Manhattan. I have been into the GD since '69. My girlfriend, although very open minded, is not into the GD - so any help with info or anything for the trip would be much appreciated.
I am writing the liner notes for three of the shows in the Europe 72 box: Jahrhunderthalle 26 April, Radio Luxembourg 16 May, and Lyceum 26 May.
Is there anyone among us here who attended any of these shows, or heard the Radio Luxembourg show over the air?
I'd be interested in a brief email conversation with an earwitness or two.
For that matter, I suppose it would be good to talk with someone who hit one of the other shows, for a sense of how the Grateful Dead were presented to the European market. What had you heard of them before they arrived? How were they received?
And of course, as these things go, I need it yesterday.
