Hi everybody

My greetings to the fellow European Deadheads.
To be honest I do not dare to call me a Deadhead, since I am fairly new in listening to the GD.
I started last year after purchasing the two box sets with their Studio Material and subsequently got caugth on the live side.
I do love those "From the vault" recordings, the new "Cow Palace" release and all the other live CD releases. I especially love the McKernan aera and those endless jams.
In the moment I am reading a book about the GD from their former manager, Rock.
Furthermore I listen to the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Quicksilver Messenger, Heavy stuff, every now and then a opera.
Maybe some German fans can throw me line.
For now: all the best
Frank

Hiatus

I sort of had a hiatus when thought they had gone the same way as all the other SF bands, except Santana.

Then saw them on Rockpalast and things haven't been the same since.

only set two at the time on tv in simulcast and set one was only on the radio

part 2

............the thing is following the Dead in those years was something like supporting a useless sports team.....mostly frustration and endless patience based on blind irrational loyalty waiting for the day . People thought we were mad, especially as punk and new wave got going. A thin diet of mostly substandard official recordings... and if were lucky a bootleg LP or tape. Yes there were some legendary mysterious tape collectors in the UK with US contacts, but it was hard to trade with nothing.

So when we get told we are not real deadheads it pains us a bit. This year someone told me that you can only call yourself a deadhead if you have seen 30 shows or more. Actually I don't give a feck about the label, but when I hear someone complain what a bummer it was that no one gave them a 'miracle' and therefore they missed the 5th to last 'Black throated wind' I roll my eyes a little...our miracle was for the feckers (meant in the kind non perjorative sense) to turn up!!!!!!

Well we have all come our own different routes to this place and and that's what matters.....................
