Grateful Dead

Fantasy Dead

By suggestion, since the Obama reunion topic is now a hotbed of discussion on the proper guitarist for the gig.

Here's the scenario: for whatever reasons seem good to them, Bob, Billy, Mickey and Phil decide to play some gigs together.

Who's the rest of the band?

ok , it's probably at least a weeklong gig!

As i am trying to sit here here and make a cohesive decision, thanks to gratefulmom, I cannot stay in my seat. I seem to remember back a year or two ago, when I was in elementary school.. ;) ....I was encouraged to be creative and focus. Sometimes an oxymoron, sometimes a challenge, always a magic moment.
ok, so , you have made this a show, a setlist made in the stars, pretty clear we are all sitting around the campfires for an hour or so before waltzing off to our tents for a little nap.
That's why you take your blanket's where ever you go.
anyways, Big River has to be followed by Me and My Uncle, Mexicali Blues, El Paso, Tennessee Jed.
We have a forever in front of us........and a warm fire and a grate story with us, and friends that make the world go around and around.

And my vote is...

Help>Slip>Frank has to be later for me, the opener has to really get the show going and get the people moving. My vote then is bertha>shakedown>big river... of course there are so many others that I would love to see :)

so what is the great idea?

Is it the Grateful Dead Role Playing Game? We are the band members, roadies, deadheads, dealers, vendors, etc. all on tour. We have brushes with cops, locals, narcs, flipped out people at a show. We have to find that miracle ticket or find gas money or a ride or a place to crash. The possibilites are endless.

I would really get lost in this game combining two of my passions from over the years, RPG and the Dead. How you doing on this TL? I know your mind is spinning with ideas as you read this.

I would love to see the cast figures used on this.

I'm with graed73 on the opener

a raging bertha>shakedown>big river for me. All special songs as Bertha first song I really got into on record and my first song live. Shakedown as I have worked in that part of town. Big River for all the time I have spent on that big river and the time I spent cavortin in Davenport.

Well it sounds so sweet I had to take me a chance

I rose out of me seat Lord, I had to dance,
Started moving my feet, well a clapping my hands

Well the joint was jumpin', going 'round and 'round,
Hey! realin' and a rockin', what a crazy sound,
Well they never stopped rockin' till the moon went down

alittle around and around and of coarse, Since it costs a lot to win, and even more to lose,
You and me bound to spend some time wond'rin' what to choose...
Wait until that deal come round...

Ok... bertha>shakedown>big river>around and around>deal
this show is getting better and better :)
