I just want to say WELCOME

I just want to say WELCOME to all the younger Deadheads, and also those who are just now discovering this great legacy of musical adventuring.

What started with a few musicians playing American folk music evolved into something much greater than the sum of its parts. I believe the Grateful Dead will live forever, but I'm in that generation that won't be around that much longer to find out if I was right or wrong.

Those of you who are just now discovering the music are the ones who will carry it forward for the next generation - and so on.

I look forward to learning from YOU what strikes a chord deep inside to bridge the generations - whether it is the music alone, or the entire context of the hippie era.

Long live the Grateful Dead!

Hey now ~

I guess I'll give this a whirl. Relatively young head here (if 30 is young, that is); only have seen one Jerry show and one post Jerry show. Love the Dead, Dawg, and all other extended family music. Favorite Dead shows to listen to were in the early to mid 70’s. I’m born and bred in Ohio and call the capital city home now. First show was at Buckeye Lake when I was still in high school. What an initiation to the scene that was! So, now, I’m starting to raise a family of my own, looking forward to getting out and seeing music when I have the opportunity, and can’t wait to see Ace and the Dawg this summer! Good vibes to the new and love to all creatures great and small.

...he said, "There won't be any money, but on your death-bed you will receive total consciousness," so I got that going for me...which is nice.

Spring chickens and not-so-much spring chickens. New folks to the Bus, and veteran ticket holders. And heaven knows, we got everything in between!

Welcome, newer folks! and welcome aboard!!

Good day!I'm Casey

Good day!

I'm Casey Lowdermilk and I, unfortunately, have not been to a Dead show. It simply was not in my realm of possibilities by the time I was 11 in 1995. I have, however, been blessed to have seen several former reincarnations with former members, excellent tribute bands, and bands who have been heavily influenced by the great repertoire and lifestyle of the Grateful Dead and its community. For over a year I have been volunteering with the Rex Foundation. I write the Musician's Spotlights that are featured on their site. Check it

Although I wasn't able to hop on the bus and experience live Dead as most of you here have, I have definitely been touched by the generous and kind community that has lived on in the years since. I just graduated from the University of the Pacific and am currently looking for a job and enjoying life. I look forward to being involved on and hopefully meeting some of you in the future.

When you want that groove that invokes dreams, close your eyes and focus on the dream not the groove
