Shagedelic!

Yes, I remember that windsurfing incident of which you speak, "badger" (if that's your real name). You escaped that day (Alex Allen), but wait until next time for which I have an even better idea. I'm going to place him in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death.

Oh and btw, do you still have Vanessa Kensington's number? I seem to have misplaced my little (evil) black book.

Oh, I Forgot

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!

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:

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.
