Uncle John & Uncle John's Band

I first heard the Dead in 1966. The times were and continued to be heartwrenching. When the Dead came out with this song I don't think I was the only one who felt like I was taken under the wing of the Dead. Jerry Garcia and family moved me then and does to this day. How very fortunate we are to know this man, this band, this music.

Excellent essay

Excellent essay by a very gifted poet. First time I have read it. Seems we are all riding on the big blue ball together in life and in spirit. The spirit can change the planet far beyond our steps on earth. In lifes like Jerry's, we all have and will continue to benefit from his spirit and his love. what a wonderful world.

In honor of this solemn and festive day...

I first direct those who haven't read it to Patti Smith's most fabulous Jerry Week essay. A true classic. Also in honor of the solemn and festive day, check out the Jerry birthday card made by our own Tom Mtttemeyer here.

It's yer birthday Jer!

There are things you can replace, and others you can not. And Jerry, you are in the latter category, my old friend. Thank you Jer, for all you gave, you made this a better place for so many of us. Rest in peace Jerry, sleep in the stars. You will never be forgotten, your music will continue to bring pleasure to millions of folks until the end of time.

Far the well Jerry

Fare you well my honey
Fare you well my only true one
All the birds that were singing
Have flown except you alone

Goin to leave this Broke-down Palace
On my hands and my knees I will roll roll roll
Make myself a bed by the waterside
In my time - in my time - I will roll roll roll

In a bed, in a bed
by the waterside I will lay my head
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul

River gonna take me
Sing me sweet and sleepy
Sing me sweet and sleepy
all the way back back home
It's a far gone lullaby
sung many years ago
Mama, Mama, many worlds I've come
since I first left home

Goin home, goin home
by the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul

Goin to plant a weeping willow
On the banks green edge it will grow grow grow
Sing a lullaby beside the water
Lovers come and go - the river roll roll roll

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul

Happy Birthday Jerry

Happy Jerry day to all my brothers and sisters out there. Words can't even begin to describe how much I miss Jerry and that special magic that was a Dead show. It was, and still is, an honor and a privilege to be a part of it all. The Bus may have slowed a bit, but it hasn't stopped!

Peace
