Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
Any guitar you played sounded great.
the road goes on forever....
This maybe out of the topic a little but here goes- does anyone out there in Deadland know what is up with the Pure Jerry releases/archives/website, etc-it seems like everything has stopped again after a resurgence of activity. I would love to see some more live releases including a video of the Warfield performances with David Grisman. A box of live shows from various eras/incarnations would be a blast. Etc,Etc.
This from the professor:
It's a bit vague, but it seems like Jerry's talking here about an acid trip. One source of this type of interview could be the Rolling Stone compiled interviews book, "Garcia". Another source is David Dodd's edited compilation of articles "The Grateful Dead Reader". A third source could be David Gans' "Conversations with the Dead". Good luck and happy hunting!
I was listing to Tales From The Golden Age yesterday and there was a guy who just started rattling off quotes from Jerry. One was about change, the other was about being an earthling and he said they were all from one interview. Do any of you know where this interview or these quotes can be found? What is the best source of his interviews?
"Fuck em if they can't take a joke" Jerry Garcia.

Apparently, your band mates and fans have forgotten your stance on politics.. I wish it wasn't so, but you already know. Thank you Jerry for all you did! I'm sorry your family and friends have forgotten. I never will!
Not sure if this link will last but is a new page on FB titled "Free Tiger" an awareness cause that has hopes of eventually convincing Jim Irsay (owner of the guitar) to loan it to the RRHOF for 6 months out of the year for all of us to see. Check it out.
...who was the poet ---William Santanaya-(I forget)--"If you don't remember the past-yer doomed to repeat it!" Well, from the stuff I've read since 69-till present it seems to me that jerry andthe band remembered the past AND transformed it! Headin to the east to see and tape Bill Monroe (meetin Grisman)--blues from Pigpen-old time music and ragtime-classical from Phil---AND THEN------SPACE TRAVEL---ooohhh yeeeaahhhhh baby!!!!
