Yes, johnman

But have you been known to frequent Bob's Country Bunker, where they have both kinds of music? Really wish I could have found a clip of that... Instead there's only this

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Hal R says "no death to country music".....

& I agree, of course.....Grateful Dead played PLENTY of country songs, wore & still do wear cowboy shirts & play country songs..... death to country music-what a joke.......the swastika=here's what the Wikipedia enclopedia says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika
also I always thought it was an ancient American Indian symbol that the German Nazis stole-among everything else they stole...........so PEACE & LOVE TO YOU ALL
that's what should rule the world.....xoxox Gypsy Cowgirl
ps-ok, Hal-happy now, that I've opened my big mouth? haha OH, & don't forget a sense of humor-that would be great if that helped rule this world

I should clairfy Pop Country***

Sorry folks, I am refering to the country "pop" that only talks about trucks and beer drinking non-sense, that has no real musical talent, bc I do really enjoy old time country and bluegrass, but this stuff today makes me sick

Death to Country Music?

No way. Them's fighting words.

The Dead were highly influenced by old time music, bluegrass and the Bakersfield sound. They played songs by Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Dolly. And how about NRPS and Jerry's steel guitar?.

I would be up for replacing much the so called country music on the radio today which is nothing but bad rock with the songs.of Willie, Waylon, Emmylou, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Gram Parsons and more that play or did play real country music.

The Dead even had their country period from late 69-71. Sometimes I think they are basically an electric psychedelic bluegrass jam band

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
