Your words hit home to me like few others have. The Music-All Through Tunes. Unfortunately I only caught one show this last summer, I still have the heart to do full or partial tours but I realize how much I've aged since '95. The scene of people has changed, I don't see as many folks from the '60's or '70's. I sorta still feel young but if I let my hair and beard grow the greys sprout all over. The young ones eye me suspiciously now and I don't care to freak any out but,what can you do. One thing that appears nicer now is the apparent lack/lower numbers of jonny law as compared to the last few years with Jerry. Also, return to smaller venues that hadn't been played since the '80's. Boys please play together again--soon. Thanks, jeffr
When I hear the boys play I am transported back to a time when I first felt free. A time when I became me. I wasn't my mothers daughter or my mans girl. I was me. When I'm felling lost, when I'm feeling blue, I can find a tune or two that will help me regain my footing and help me pull myself up out of that place. Today I found Lost Sailor and just closed my eyes and traveled back.
I can go back and think about what is really important in my life. What do I really want?
All through tunes.
This summer I went to Albany, I went to Buffalo and I tried to relive the trip (travel) but it isn't the same, it's new. I'm only as good as I am today. I'll never be what I was yesterday. If I can enjoy today, I can enjoy tomorrow even more.
Peace & Love
Went away 14 years ,and suddenly I find out deadheads are all still kicking, dancing, going places;and ever had a few jokers up their pranksters sleeves ,playing new games to keep in touch together via computers ! So, these people are definitly awake and alive As for Grateful Dead music the sounds are cruising live in the winds of Times/Spaces and who knows,some entities ,immortels,aliens,might groove hearing such sounds why not,indeed !!!
I myself was born in 1992 making me 3 when Jerry passed, I was introduced to the Grateful Dead by my dad who listened to them when he was younger, I absolutely love the music and consider myself a deadhead and on the bus. After hearing the phrase "theres nothing like a Grateful Dead show" over and over again I wanted nothing more then to see the band, obviously out of the question. So when they announced the 09 tour my dad and I flew up to Albany, and what an experience some of the nicest people Ive ever met, and even though it wasn't the Grateful Dead I now have an idea of what its like. I am glad there are younger people like me interested in the Grateful Dead to keep the spirit around once the band is no more, i plan on introducing my kids to the Dead just as my did to me
After the show last night at shoreline 5/14/09 I got a real pain in my heart, I mean I had almost forgotten how much many of you have meant to my life and still do. Phil made a great point while speaking last night saying that we were not only there to see the band but to see each other. The family that has grown in the wake of the dead is real and we are alive. This to me is the most important thing and I hope this feeling and connection will roll on forever. This family does not and absolutely should not die with the band. I will always be on the bus.
