Keith's Death

I have some old friends from Marin County, California that were friends with Keith. They told me Keith died in an automobile accident near Lagunitas, California on a curvy stretch of road now known as "Dead Man's Curve" because of all the accidents that have occurred there. According to my friends, Keith had played in a show with his band that he had with Steve Kimock earlier that day in Oakland. He was riding with another friend named Keith ( don't know last name) who was injured but was not killed.

Hope this helps,
RIP KEITH !!!!

Hope all is well

Keith
wherever your spirit is i know you are having a great time playing-
I have really gotten into the 1971-1974 Dead so many great shows with Keith.
When PigPen and Keith toured together they band sounded great.

My new fave show is the 72 Spectrum

37 minute Dark Star? Unbelievable

And the road goes on forever....

Donna-less, too

There was a stint where Mickey, Pig, nor Donna were about - an interesting little time. When Pig returned that crucial blues element balanced everything and off they went. For me, this is as heart-of-gold as it got.

"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."

not at this show

Pigpen was not at this show or this tour. A comment is made about how he is sick and in bed.

Though later there were shows with both of them. I think by this time Pigpen's role as keyboard player was minimal, but still did some vocal leads and harp.

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

2 guys on the keys, wow!

2 guys on the keys, wow! How does that work? One take a lead role and one take a rythym role?

Didn't that happen with Hornsby and Welnick on occasions as well?

A dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago...
