The Wonder Years and Ripple

In People magazine, August 27, page 111.

"At Fred Savage's house, 3 p.m. means nap time - but not for Daddy. Nearly 20 years ago, he starred as Kevin Arnold, the 12-year -old hero of TV's The Wonder Years, a tender coming of age drama set in the 60's. Now the 31-year-old actor is all grown up and crooning the Grateful Dead song "Ripple" to his 1-year-old son Oliver to get him to sleep. It's a tradtition that began an hour before the baby's birth on August 5, 2006. "Whenever I sing it he drifts right off," says Savage."

I enjoyed this show because he portrayed someone the same age I was in that period. A fictional tv contemporary. But in real life a Deadhead?....

cool, gypsy!

You might want to send an email to Selvin, who actually did the interview. I think his address is at the bottom of the article...

Jerry Garcia Cycling fan ?

I was watching the English coverage of the Tour De France and the presenter, Gary Imlach Said " And in the words of the great cycling fan Jerry Garcia, What a Long Strange Trip it's been"

a pity he didn't know it was Robert Hunter's words

Army Wives 'ghosts'

If you should happen to tune into 'Lifetime' Channels' new hit show, Army Wives,look around in the 'Hump Bar'. It is where they all gather,drink and talk, one of the characters,Roxy, works there. Look closely at the bar and sometimes you'll get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right. We are everywhere!!!!!!

Rare Owsley interview!

Joel Selvin of the San Francisco Chronicle pays Owsley a visit and gets a pretty good interview! Also, great pics of Owsley, Kesey and the boys, not to mention the story of Alice D. Millionaire. A must-read!

back to the fillmore story

I just came across this short story taken from an anthology of Rock and Roll stories. It's written by this guy who has written for Rolling Stone and The Village Voice. It tells the story of an 18 yr old in 2069 traveling back in time to 1969 to see the Dead at the Fillmore. Kind of corny, but fun. Link here:

re;Grateful Dead Roadie Story Coming to Big Screen - Cinematical

Yeah I just read about it at Cinematical http://tinyurl.com/ytkdn4 via Relix .
Our story is too convoluted and varied by perspective to be misinterpreted into a movie.
Like "I Robot" or "Dune", (which both sucked), the writers work gets mashed up in production and here we are as much the Writers as Parish and Layden. I wish them the best of luck but share your nervousness leadbelly27.

Grateful Dead bio-pic

This sort of thing makes me nervous.
Apparently a film is in the works based on Parish's "Home Before Daylight" book. Info here:
