I think it was to hang with Brent. Brent rekindled the fire in the band, and it is well known that Jerry liked playing with new people. You could always see him light up when a guest player was on stage.
it was so he could be closer to the buffet, hahahahaha!
"If the forms of this world die, which is more real, the me that dies or the me that's infinite? Can I trust my habitual mind, or do I need to learn to look beneath those things?"
I've heard a rumor:
Jerry wanted to be on the same side of the stage like Ace Freehly of KISS.
Garcia was a huge KISS fan in the late 70's, often seen backstage at KISS shows.
in fact, Jerry taought Ace how to play, if you listen carefully6, you will notice similarities in their lead styles. Ace used to bust his balls, saying he was on the Gene side.
hope this helps.
Does anybody know why Jerry moved from playing on the right side of the stage to the left? The switch appears to have happened in the late 70s.
