I think it was on one of those Rock History documentaries and the topic was Altamont. Jerry was giving insights on it, and I remember one of the things he said was "the air was particulating." I did read a quote where Jerry likened Altamont to "a day in hell." If anyone knows the documentary I am talking about I would like to know. I do remember that Altamont was presented as the end of the 60's.
Is that really you? It's been a long time since I saw you here...welcome back!
yea, i saw this last year and was a bit freaked by it.
This is new to me and good to see..although his joke about borrowed time at the start is scarily prescient
Toward the end of July I started re watching the Grateful Dead videos on YT. My usage increased daily until last night When I stared watching right after work and didn't stop until 1AM. I also took a tour and caught up on the other members and their bands. Today it occurred to me that there might be a reason for this. Aug. 1, 1942. Duh.
I wonder if there are going to be any memorial events in the TwinCities, MN area on Aug 9?
I guess this feeling never goes away.
Jerry is one of the greatest people to have ever graced this little planet of ours! I think of him often but especially today on his birthday. I still get chills when I hear his music and he will forever be etched indelibly in my memory.
Happy birthday Mr. Garcia and thank you for your endless contributions to our worldwide Deadhead family!

Thank you Jerry for keeping love alive for so many (~);-)
Hope you're still kickin' it in our world system.
The years seem to pass by quickly, yet the memories remain vibrant. Your contribution to music and the endless joy left behind, will forever be celebrated by your legion of fans.
Happy Birthday Jerry!
and a lucky day it was for a lot of us! Happy birthday Jerry, and thank you.
