Man that may just be the coolest thing I have ever seen ccs gone. Wow I am really missing Jerry right about now too.
"Half of my life I spent doing time for some other f@#ker's crime. The other half found me stumbling around drunk on burgundy wine"
I'd have to say my favorites are 1. Tiger, 2. Wolf 3. Bean
I love every single thing about the Tiger's tone.
"There ain't no revolution, it's evolution, but every time I'm in Georgia I eat a peach for peace."
yeah, it was them ace's running up and down his sleeve that did the digit in, just as the queen of diamonds was hittin' full shine!
the story about Garcia and his brother was just for the press releases because the truth is too shocking; Jerry lost the tip of his finger in a poker game.
Didn't Jerrys brother aXidently chop off his finger while chopping wood at a young age? So iv'e heard somewhere.
thx, ccejjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj! i remember sneaking to the tv in the basement to watch playboy after dark as a kid (probably 13-14), i think it was wgn in chicago, it was on real late, and i saw THIS show. how could ya forget that poncho. another one of those brushes with my future before i knew... it would still be a few years before i found myself escaping though the lily field : )
can't never get tired of this clip:
missin' Jerry real bad today...
seeing this makes me smile.
I also remember hearing a story about a dude who saw Jerry before some show, must have been 88 thereabout, post-coma Jerry; maybe walking around, anyways, Garcia was smoking a ciggarette, and the dude yelled out 'hey Jerry, I heard you quit smoking' to which Garcia replied with a stubby, right handed middle finger gesture type of reaction with a smile as he did it. that is the only confirmed rumor of which finger Garcia used in his adult life, though this is only anecdotal evidence and hardly enough to form of a sample to gather the proper level of statistical integrity.
apart from Polo and breeding Arabian horses....
Garcia was a real pip. a real pip.
Can't answer any of those, Joe, but I do seem to recall that the new Senator from Minnesota once offered to have Jerry give the "finger" to someone on Halloween night in 1980...
All you had to do was give generously to Jerry's Kids!
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
