I am happy to see all of you.Sken, Leadbelly, OROBOS, Bongo, Spacebrother, etc... Good to see you all at the new site! Question: Who's going to the Gathering of the Vibes?
i'm brian; bpenney, wejstrd and frankratter in other places. a bit of a loner, but when i have something to say i will. often comes out in unpredictable ways.
my first show was 3/1/92 in atlanta and the last was st louis 95.
a kentucky boy.
I'm one of "those" NY Deadheads although I moved to RI many years ago; some may remember me as "Bones" back in the days of the haze.
I bang nails for food but try not to confuse living to work with working to live; I've only been semi computer literate for a few years and still wondering if it's a blessing or a curse. Had a cell phone given to me last year but use it sparingly, guess you could say I'm going to hell in a bucket (you can fill in the rest and give it a listen while you're at it, '83 perhaps...)
Hello again Oroboros for sensible views, Sken whos a fellow musician, CC Joe for the name that show thread and everyone from the last incarnation of the forum whom I've met.
Also Greetings to the Mods Izzie and Marye.
lol!. The first opportunity I have to show off my rapier wit (cough, cough), and it gets deleted. Ha ha, just kidding!
Anyway, like I said, it's good to see all of the good people from the old site over here! Big HOLA to CC Joe, Sken, Gypsy, Oroboros, gdmatt, et al (I know I'm leaving a bunch of people out!)
But where's Bongo?
Yo Soy Boricua!
Hello to everyone!:)
New fan from Montreal here, been discovering the Deads for some days, watching the grateful dead movie and been listening to them non stop ever since. There seems to be such a friendly peaceful vibe from this band's music, it is magical. In a post-modern world where cynism, computers and the impossible can be downloaded, their music seems like the ultimate tonic for a guy with the blues.
I would love to have recommendations from where to start and what shows can I found easily. I love the Europe 72 album. Well, hope to become a true deadhead in the future. thanks in advance.
and i just got to say that this is so awsome to be part of such a great group of people that has kept the band alive...just sitting here reading all your post's and i stopped to think that the grateful dead as a band is gone but the fans and remaining memebers are still trucking along how sweet is that. there are bands out there with website's that are great but this one is the best
the band maybe gone but we the fans are not forgotten how many other band's out there have done that... yup there's only one the good ole grateful dead.....
wowza, this is quite a treat!
san francisco conceived, brooklyn born deadhead here. moved to nor cal in 1970 after hookin' up with the boyz at the fillmore east in '69 where i had the incredible blessing to work on the sound crew (and was responsible for helping liberate some of the first high quality soundboards; specifically 2/13-14 & 5/15/70)
had the priviledge to hang out w/ marye, pauli, driver, aud, unkljohn, jewel, shmo, almanac, danlevy, silberman, maddog dgans and a bunch of other great 'heads on the well for ten years until jerry split and i basically did also (it was just too painful to talk about for a long time.) never could get back into the well but i've been wishing for a new place to reconnect with the tribe, so hopefully this will be it.
great to see and hear from so many old folks & lookin' forward to meetin' those i haven't met b4. i've missed this family a lot...
....from North Carolina and I am definately a Deadhead. My first show was in 79' at my hometown of Charlotte. I am a drummer and played for many outfits over the years. My latest gig was a series of shows with Tom Constanten in Florida, Arizona and Las Vegas. We had a lot of fun. I was fortunate enough to see hundreds of shows and I considerate it to be a major influence in my life. My favorite window for the Dead is the 79' - 81' with 82' - 83 right behind. I am definately a Brent guy. Allright. Everybody enjoy this site. It seems to be very cool. A great way for us to share our experiences.
