including Dark Star Orchestra show Saturday
While I was reading this article, I was listening to my newly acquired Phil & Friends, Atlanta 2006 concert. At the exact point of the article that quoted the lines from "Franklin's Tower", I listened to Phil & Friends play and sing those words. It was (to say the least) bone chilling. I had never heard that part of the concert and it was the very first time I played the CD for myself. Thanks again, everyone!

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:

Woops, we'll try that again
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.
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.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
