Grateful Dead

Introducing Ourselves - Part 2

Since the original topic now has hundreds of introductions and is getting a bit hard to navigate, this seems as good a time as any to launch a new one.

The original is here, should you wish to catch up on the who's who since this opened up in May.

If you haven't introduced yourself yet, please do! And if you already have, but have something new to tell us about you and your life, speak up!

(A bit of housekeeping business so we don't have to repost everything we posted before--izzie and I are the moderators here, and for our more extensive intros see the original topic.)

Thanks and welcome!

Cher AKA Annie West

I did dead tour from 1989-1994 I was not a regular because I had a son. But when I tour I stayed close to the Wrecking Crew. I lived in Denver and Traveled between Denver and San Fransico. I want to find old friends. I want to hear about the old times and see pictures. I want to be in contact with people I considered family. Although the last time I saw everyone I had a bit of a freak out!

Wishing a grateful day to all my fellows in Canton, OH

The music thrives in all of us. Looking forward about tour dates this new year. When I was younger, I always was working keeping ..the main loves of my life __ This phenomenal music which kicks your ass and gives you energy to shake those bones, and Kalli, the one who got away. When you strummed Jack a row to me we should've gotten married later that night. God Bless the Band and all you DEADHEADS everywhere.

Leave the bunk in the trunk...

Danny C, day before Christmas wack-a-doo fa you!

Huhhh? WTF Danno? Obama is such a predominant factor in our mutual love for penulttimate jam band music that you have to feel ultimately violated and hated because we had such a stark choice for president last year?

C''mere you big ole' dancing bear! Quinn the Eskimo's right behind uf and everybody's gonna wanna dose!

I was always sick of the politics but I'm glad I didn't let it define me!

Santa and the psychedelic mushrooms are playings at Harvard in Cambridge Square in Boston. You better not not shout , you better not pout, Amanita Muscaria are coming, to town!

Merry Christmas, Danny -- stay warm!!

hey all

my names Kenny im 22 and sadly was only alive for a few years during the Dead's run. My biggest regret is that i will never get to hear the world's best live band actually play live.

My favorite period for the dead is 63 (mother mcree's) to 73 (pigpen's death). I only recently (in the last year) got into the dead and have tried to catch up quickly but there's obviously a vast amount of material to indulge in so here i am.

I'm also somewhat of a mediocre musician and my solo album can be found here : . There is also an improvised version of Sugaree on there. I'm just here looking to meet fellow dead heads and allow the dead to consume my life haha.

What to do with tape collection?

I'm not sure where I should be posting this and I couldn't figure out how to post a new topic anywhere so I'll give this a shot...

Name is John from Philadelphia. I inherited a large collection of tapes of the Grateful Dead. These belonged to a dedicated fan who's life unfortunately ended at a young age and his father has passed his collection on to me after years of storage in the basement. I have not had the opportunity to go through all of them yet but there's a little over 500 tapes ranging from the 60's to 90's... His father said he used to travel to concerts, record the events and later trade tapes... a bootlegger I suppose.

My question is what should I be doing with these? Besides storing them for another decade in my basement and occasionally popping a tape in my boom-box... I'd hate for them to deteriorate with time and become trash. Is it worth while dubbing these to MP3's for safekeeping? Or are there so many of these tapes around that I'd only be wasting my time?

Thank you all for any suggestions you may have

Saying Hi from Lancaster Pa.

Greetings Fellow travelers

Older then most here I think, 55 on Sept 11. Saw my first show in 71 at Franklin
& Marshall College here in Lancaster Pa. Saw the boys most years till the late 70s then took about 8 years off and started doing shows again in the mid 80s. 92 comes around and a son is born and my run with the band ends. It was one hell of a ride friends!!! Now with the internet and XM radio I get to listen to lots of great shows any time I want, what a great place to live!!! Any body want to chat, just shot me a line.
