Baltimore Sun Article

I read a very touching and informative article in the Sun yesterday, regarding our relationship with the Grateful Dead (and resulting music/groups) and our (sometimes bewildered) family members. I hope this message can help put our quest in perspective to those family members and friends that cannot understand. Check the article out at: baltimoresun.com/branthaver

cool!

thanks for the pointer. Henry always has something interesting to say, in my experience.

One of my favorite Jerry photos of all time is the one Jon Sievert took for the GP cover in 1978. By the time I met Jon many years later, apparently the negatives from the photo shoot (which GP owned) had vanished, or I would have bought a print in a heartbeat. My copy of the magazine is a bit faded and battered, but I'll see if I can scan it in. Great close-up of Wolf. Beautiful wood grain on that guitar.

Jerry lives!

In the pages of the latest (Nov.) Guitar Player which I just got in today's mail. Every month the best albums/CDs of a guitar master are featured in a section called Oeuvre Easy. In this issue it is "Jerry Garcia Live", written and compiled by Henry Kaiser. There is a great 2/3 page photo of Jerry walking down Haight Street in 1968, guitar in hand and big smile. Henry Kaiser's focus in the piece are the live not studio recordings.

There has been more mention this year of Jerry and the Dead in the pages of GP than there has been for years.

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...
