Grateful Dead on The Voice and American Idol

I know it sounds crazy but I think the time has come for the bastions of American Pop Culture, the tv shows #AmericanIdol and #TheVoice to celebrate the songwriting and lyrical genius of The Grateful Dead.

I created a facebook page DeadIdolVoices to start gathering a petition of "Likes" to see if the producers of those shows will take note. Please feel free to hit the page and show your support!

I mean seriously... if Justin Timberlake is wearing a "Stealie" and Taylor Swift is praising Bob Weir as an inspiration then why the heck not? Seems like a good way to add to the fun of celebrating 50 years and the amazing influence the Grateful Dead has had on music.

go to and follow the directions there. Mail order is over; online presale is coming up in Feb:

Tickets will be offered through Grateful Dead Ticketing mail order and a public on sale via Ticketmaster.

Wow! We re excited (and humbled) to discover that your enthusiasm for Fare Thee Well matches our own! We have received an overwhelming number of mail order ticket requests. In an effort to honor the history and spirit of the Grateful Dead, we are going to try to fill as many of these orders as possible. This means there will be no other pre-sales. In order to give the good folks at GDTS TOO time to sort through the 60,000+ (!) envelopes received so far the new public on sale is Feb 28th @ 10 a.m. CST via Ticketmaster.

It could be from Bobby's solo project, titled: "Ace". Maybe you're searching for the Dead when it is really a solo by Bobby. Just a guess.

dead sightings

In a Flatbush Zombies rap music video they've got many Dead memorabilia, such as the skeleton with a headband of roses, and Zombie Juice is usually wearing Dead t shirts. It's like his beard is a tribute to Jerry

Featured a joke along the lines,

The Griffin family makes Stewie stand out and shine like The Grateful Dead did for Bob Weir...

Acoustic Dead release

I assume you may be referring to this rare show from the Family Dog at the Great Highway billed as Mickey Hart and His Heartbeats and Bobby Ace:
It was originally released on vinyl as part of last year's Black Friday Record Store Day.
