Mayre, what's your feeling?

What's your feeling? How long will The Dead play?

It would be tragic for them to leave e stage anytime soon. Garcia said they'd play until, "they came and took us away". I want to bring my children 9 and 6 currently, some day.

What's your feel?

I'll cry if I can't bring them some day.

well, depends again

I only come to the RatDog forum, there's too many topics here, for me. It makes my head spin. In direct proportion to the Rolling Rock, just kidding.

I was in Worcester this spring at the 4/18 show with a first date and she asked, "Do you think Garcia (she probably said Jerry, only us, the esoteric refer to him by his proper moniker) is here?" I said, "He can be anywhere in the universe, he could taking in a supernova or black hole, the birth of a new solar system, why would he be in Worcester on a Saturday night?" She asked the question every which way until Sunday until I agreed he was there one way or the other.

He has a lot to do with the RatDog repertoire now.

that probably depends on whether you're talking literally or metaphysically! But I do not think he ever had anything directly to do with RatDog.

Garcia's dead. He's out of the band.

Am I wrong?

jackie greene

a lot of all the ratdog fans have been complaining about jackie opening either on or archive i like a majority of jackies material and enjoy when i get to see him when you all review a show try not to be biased because of the opener review the band in this case ratdog who when i saw them in rochester did wonderfully as always if you dont like jackie opening then skip this tour but n my honest opinion i would rather have jackie open than moe. dont be so harsh on the openers or closers even though the blak crowes songs all sounded the same in columbus i think jerry would have appreciated jackie though if jerry were still here we wouldnt have phil and friends or ratdog bobby thanks for the lovelight in rochester and for the 11 in rochester and upper darby last year that was a song i never thought i would hear live please bring back so many roads at vibes

good to hear !

I'll be seeing them in 6 weeks. Hey Bobby, how about for the Jacksonville, OR. show maybe you guys could get a bunch of six-pack coolers made up to give out at the show! It could have a nice Ratdog logo on the top and maybe a Steal Your Face on the sides ? The Britt only holds 2,200 so it shouldn't cost much and maybe it could be a tax write off and I'm sure us fans would love it !

Saw the guys on Wednesday night and they were smoking! Fantastic show! Much better than the Dead show I saw in Charlottesville this spring. Despite the fact they played "Easy Answers" (which gets my vote for worst Dead song ever) this was one of the best shows I've seen in a number of years. moe. was as good as I've ever seen them too! Get out and see this tour!

And a chair, or table, or

And a chair, or table, or bridge. But they didn't allow sex between the sexes, or between anyone else for that matter so they were destined to die out. There's got to be a better way to build a religion. The y built the first bridge over Mascoma Lake by dragging it out over the ice in the winter and sawing around it.

Do you know how they were came to be known as "Shakers"?

They would build up so much religious fervor they would convulse, thus the name.

That webpage on NH beaches is a great reference and is very appreciated. Thanks again.
