hello ~ my name is Dew and I'm hopelessly addicted to the Grateful Dead . . . I'm really not ready to admit that I have a problem . . . but my loved ones thought it would be best for me take this step . . .
i was not at penn's landing for dso...my friends have been trying to get me to see them for years but i resist ... i don't do cover bands. or penn's landing when it's that blasted hot. normally we do head down to that gig every year. was really sorry to miss dr. dog and the wailers...
i'm in media. have lived here for 20+ years.
Hey now - thanks for stopping to let me back on! This looks like a cool site. Went to a couple few hundred shows between '82 and '93, taped most of 'em. Things were never the quite the same for me after Brent, and I couldn't watch Jerry fade away, so I stopped. Just moved back to Philadelphia again - is there anybody out there?
yeah, the ozark mountain daredevils are definitely worth a lissen'.
i especially keep the first three albums in regular rotation.
in the same vein, may i recommend- Goose Creek Symphony.
... And it's kind of big here. Where the hell are we ??? Anyways, I'm in San Francisco. Always been a Deadhead. Lived in No. Cali. all my adult life. I'm 54 ... you do the math
Once in a while you can get shown the light,
In the stragest of places,
If you look at it right ...
Oroboros is my screen name but my real name is Tim. I am from the middle of the country (Nebraska) and my first show was 6-16-74 in Des Moines and my last was the Dead's last Vegas Run. I have enjoyed the old site immensely and am enjoying trying to retool my old brain with this new format. This does remind me of the wonderful friends and the community that initially turned me onto the Grateful Dead. Toured a bunch til 'my three sons' and then not so much, but was delighted by attending occasional shows and treasured them greatly. Wonderful wife who acompanied me to many shows and waved goodbye and sent me on my way to see music, when she didn't want to go. Attended a Phil and Friend's last summer at 10klakes with my wife and youngest son. Second born will be seeing RatDog (and the Police) at Bonnero next week.
I have enjoyed the ride and I am grateful for some of you out there (you know who you are) who have made me laugh out loud (I learned about lol) as we alternate from trudging on the trail to taking flight "a little bird within her sang". Thanks all.

Greetings all. I'm thrilled with the revamped site and glad to see that this place has once again turned into a place for like-minded kinfolk to hang, chat, discuss, share and reminiscence. My first show was 7/16/90, my last 6/15/95, 27 total, mostly in the Buffalo, Albany, Pittsburgh, and Ohio areas. My first bootleg was an Xth generation cassette of 02/26/77 which I snagged in the lot of the Richfield shows Fall '91. Needless to say, it changed my life, as it's turned my Grateful Dead experience from casual listening to something akin to an intellectual pursuit.
Since Jerry's passing I've shaved, showered, and traded in my tie-dye for a neck tie. I've got a wonderful wife who is part of the GD family and was seeing Phish when they were a bar band playing Providence, RI in '88 and '89. I've also got a beautiful daughter who turns three in September, and another child on the way, due the first week of August.
I download at a compulsively frenetic rate - thank god for bit torrent. A link to my list is below. It's woefully incomplete, and I rarely trade anymore, simply because I don't have time. However, I'm always willing to help out when I can. The dvd list is pretty up to date, but the cd/shn/flac list hasn't been updated in ages.
Anyway - I'm glad to be here and look forward to getting to know some of you.
Hi there aud! I was just reading your post and thought I'd reach out. I also live in the Western suburbs of Philadelphia. Were you down at Pen's Landing to see Dark Star recently?
Anyway, I'm Hunter, nice to meet you.
