    Okay--saw the Dead in
    Okay--saw the Dead in Chicago for the first time in about 1970. Last saw them in Indy in about 1974. Missed all the wild shit, but that's okay. Been catching up. Or not, it's all good. Watch out for MrnDw, he's one of the clever ones--

    New Cyber Bus?
    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?

    Greetings
    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. "You see the hut, yet you ask, where shall I go for shelter?" West African proverb

    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. http://www.phishhook.com/lists/GratefulBear Anyway - I'm glad to be here and look forward to getting to know some of you. Shine on, Bear

Hey! I am Bamski from Brooklyn and I got on the bus in college and hit my first show in Pittsburg on 6-26-88 and hit about 30 shows along the way. Between the handful of DVDs and nearly 1000 digital songs, just about everyday is a different Dead show. Nothing like coming home from a long day at work and putting on some Dead and relaxing.

Hi there. My name is Evan and I am from very nothern new york near Canada but am attending college in Buffalo. Just wanted to make a shout in the hopes of becoming part of this awesome community. Unfortunately, because I was born in '87 I was never able to see the Dead. However I love them. The first time I ever heard any real Dead (beside like Truckin' or something) was in a car coming back from a golf game. My cousin's boyfriend Jason popped in Dick's Picks 17 and turned it to Franklin's Tower. I don't know whether is was Hornsby's piano or Jerry's guitar but I was blown away. I have been a hardcore fan ever since. The closest I have come since to seeing the Dead is seeing Ratdog at the FLPC center in Geneva. Shout out to anyone who was there. Take care all!

Glad to see you here! Always good to see the youth on the bus. Since this topic is getting quite huge, I'm launching a new version here. We look forward to making your acquaintance, folks, so don't be shy!
