No Deadheads in Jolly Old England then!

I know I'm probably the only one in Beccles, Suffolk but are there any deadheads out there in the rest of this green and pleasant land.
Never got to see the dead live so I'm extremely jeolous of all those who did (thats everyone writing here it seems). I play the albums, read the books, and read your experiances to fill the void.
At least I've converted the family, took awhile before Gill my wife would listen, then said "I thought they were heavy metal or something with that name" oh! well got there in the end.
Spent the 70s and 80s seeing lots of gigs cant remember most of em so they must have been good at the time. I got the hang of it after a while and if poss got tickets 2 nights running. The first to watch and enjoy sensibly the second to get off my face and really enjoy.
Now with a family I go to nice gigs/festivals We are off to Latitude Fest down the road to us tomorrow. Should be good, poetry, theatre, and good music, Arcade Fire,Tinariwen etc. this year and fine beer as well. If anyone fancies listening to Radio 4 Loose ends, Sat night its live from the Fest.
Take care all you fine folk, I'll let you how the fest goes when I get back.
Cheers
Cliff

Hey all, I grew up just

Hey all,
I grew up just south of San Francisco in Half Moon Bay and Redwood City. Now I live in France like Garcia44. Was living in Paris working as a cook, and now I've been travelling around South and Central America for a year with my wife. When we go back to France we'll be moving to the south to Toulouse, and in a couple years maybe move back to San Francisco, but like tigerlilly said you learn a lot about the states by leaving, but I've been to some great places and in my heart home sweet home will always be the San Francisco Bay. It is so nice to see this site finally up and running after waiting for sooo long.
But just to let the heads in europe know, I did come across a European version of dead.net, but it seems pretty empty there. www.eurodead.net, now that we're here, we'll have to get the people on that site over here.

Hand me my old guitar and pass the whiskey 'round.

Well said!

Germany, Germans to me are sort of boring, but I did meet an exciting German once on a flight from Frankfurt to Shanghai. It was a red eye flight and I noticed this huge big man and I thought that he and I would definitely be sitting next to each other as I usually can feel out who is going to be sitting next to me on these 10 hour flights from Frankfurt to Shanghai. Well it turned out that he was a container ship captain and I give much respect to these individuals as they have seen the sun come up over the oceanic horizon many times and they have the Merritt times down. Do you know what I mean? Well we got pissed and talked for about 3-4 hours until some German guy behind us said enough was enough. He said, your stories are very interesting but I want to sleep so please stop ordering beers and go to sleep!! Well long story short we agreed.

I was born is Christchurch, grew up outside of Jacksonville Florida, went to High School in Christchurch and went to the University of Grateful Deadland! ;) Since being in the land of German beer I've been careful not to drink to much as it is so easy to! I have to learn the Haka as everyone seems to love the All Blacks rugby team, well, at least the more internationally minded folks I meet. Just today someone asked me when the next rugby world cup is, as if being a Kiwi I must know such a thing!?! ;) It made me wonder though, maybe I'd better check... hmmm...! :) I would say ALL music is world music as it's all related through the mists of history with the interconnecting trade routes and all. But what is considered world music as a categorical term must surely be Mickey Hart and his homies right?!? Although I thought he came from the same place as Spock; Vulcan! Maybe it's all in the ears of the beholder!?! ;)

Are you kind?
