This is a little info I just read about and I thought you might laugh too hearing it:there is a little town in Austria called "Fucking" cerated by lord Focko in the VI century .Nowadays people come from far away just to have their picture taken near the town's signs . the mayor is so pissed off about it he install cameras next the signs of "Fucking" to find out who is making jokes about his town 's name !!!

Hey everybody, last Tuesday I welcomed a studio guest on my STASH radio show, Marc from the Hamburg-based GD tribute band Cosmic Finger. You wanna check out their delicious sound? http://www.stash-radio.de/archiv.htm (interview and moderation in German, though...). All the best, Frank--- www.stash-radio.de www.myspace.com/stash_radio

Hey TigerLilly and buddy plant, a GD cover band in Heidelberg? No, I didn't know. What's their name? I only know that Billy Goodman's living there. Ah, perhaps Karmic Society? One can read on their myspace page "Sounds like Cobham and Stockhausen are having a barbecue, somewhere in the San Francisco bay area. And everybody's coming. Emerson, Hendrix, McLaughlin, the Doors (they even brought some salad),... But it seems like the Beatles have put some lsd in everybody's sausages!" Btw, Cosmic Finger will play live and acoustic in the studio on 8 December! Sprockets? No, what do you mean? Ciao, Frank

may be correct. I will look up that vid again.And Sprockets was a sketch from the comedy show Saturday Night Live-was poking fun at German music and "musicians" from the hmmm bauhaus into neue deutsche welle times. Was very funny! ********************************** Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge. Mark Twain

Hi All. My first ever post! I live in the UK and have been a Dead fan for nearly 20 years. I guess that makes me a new starter compared to some folks on here. It took me a while but I saw the light in the end!!! I love all sorts of bands, especially jamming guitar bands, which brings me on to Guvt` Mule. I`m desperate to hear the Dead with Warren Hayes as a member!! Where can I get some of the latest gigs??The only Dead related "boot" live stuff I have to trade is a Ratdog gig from Newcastle upon Tyne, England a few years back. Rob Wasserman on bass. I do have quite a few shows by other bands. I will be grateful for any help....... Cheers

I am quite close to you, about 40 KM from Frankfurt. Deadheads in Europe are few and far between, but we are here. There is a pretty good jam band in Heidelberg, and another in Nürnberg. The names escape me at the moment, but I will look them up and post here again later. ********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.

What kind of debauchery do you all engage in where you have to join a private club to get in?In the English countryside? The mind boggles with the possibilities... Did Mick, Keith, Justin & Andrew make the scene, having Ripplesex to the Jerry Sounds? Did the pap outnumber the participants inside?

I am positive if there were any promoter types close to who could locate out precisely how the band would settle concerning revenue for doing, say eleven, shows on the European tour. Then it's just a matter of booking the proper venues within the time they could tour. Obviously a lot of Americans would arrive more than. I'd expect a good interest here from Europeans also. It would definitely be financially viable. Who can discover out what the bands needs will be? Surely they'd be up for that tour of the lifetime, specifically as there's the opportunity today to hit up Eastern Europe. I'd undoubtedly recommend Prague, Budapest, Gdansk and Tallinn at the same time since the clear Western European spots.

Stuck inside of Vienna with the San Francisco Blues again!I miss SF, My sister just saw Neil Young play a little solo show in oakland and then hung out with his son Ben. I got to see him play 14 shows straight warming up for a Europe tour before I left SF in a little bar where I used to play, It was really low pro, he used a fake band name, and only about 100 tix were sold for each show. I miss seeing phil and friends and the new tour they did with everybody, I guess as the dead. Do they ever plan on coming back out to Europe????? They really should, I agree with the last post, It would for sure be worth it for them, and I am SURE they would enjoy their time here. Let's bring em back!!!! Hand me my old guitar and pass the whiskey 'round. Matt

just this year we have started up a new site for deadheads/jamband fans in europe.it's at www.jambandseurope.com we try to have all the information on tour dates for bands coming to europe as well as gig dates by local european jambands and dead cover bands. some interviews, reveiws, etc. right now it's more of a resource tool, but hopefully a new version will be up by the beginning of the year with discussion groups, etc. to make it more community oriented please take a look. send us your suggestions, your contributions, etc. and please tell everybody about it! thanks a lot and keep on truckin'

all of you brits got a treat coming your way.The New Mastersounds are playing a one off gig at Band on the Wall in Manchester on December 18th. It's nothing like the dead, but a lot like the Meters (in fact they are playing Halloween in NOLA as the backing band for Art Neville). Although they're from Leeds, they almost never play in Europe, too busy playing just about every club and every major jamband festival in the u.s. (in fact the guitarist apparently has relocated to the U.S.). They played JITD here last year and in January they're playing i think their third JamCruise. Enjoy.

wow. somebody is far away from wichita!just fired off an email to Armand Sandler, maybe we'll get a response and clear up the doubts. although i imagine that they rely heavily on u.s. fans coming across, and with the weak dollar and high unemployment ... (although that hasn't seemed to hurt jma cruise or the mayan holidaze or any of the other similar packages). your first show was merriweather 1984? i lived about a mile away from merriweather all my youth. saw my first dead show there in 1985.

it's official Jam In The Band has been cancelled for 2011, or rather postponed until 2012, with the idea of making it a biannual event in the future. you heard it here first. although i hate to be the bringer of bad news. looking forward to 2012 now.

yes, for germany too.the project i am working on right now is to bring The Grateful Dread (dead tunes with a reggae groove) www.thegratefuldread.com to europe in april. we already have them booked for friday april 22nd at Muzikcentrium De Bosuil (Weert, Netherlands) and sunday, april 24th at Big Mama (Miltenberg, Germany near Frankfurt) and talking with a lot of other places. any help would be appreciated, if anyone has personal contacts with club owners and/or can recommend particularly suitable clubs (ideally with a capacity of 250 to 400 people), please send me a message. also, for spanish jamband fans the new mastersounds will probably tour spain in february, if you like the meters you'll love these guys.
