Somewhere in Signpost, I think it is (or some other interview I haven't read for 20 years), Jerry is talking about the days when he and Hunter, newly sprung from the army, were living in derelict cars in Palo Alto (it is left to the reader to contemplate the halcyon days when there were derelict cars in Palo Alto...), mostly on canned pineapple liberated from the armed forces. Many's the time I've thought how different life would be for how many people if not for those days. Anyway, this is the place for fans of Hunter to congregate, pay tribute, fantasize about tours, and otherwise be darn glad we didn't miss this guy.

Alligator Moon Suite/ Album

Not sure if this is a) is the right place to post this or b) Already been discussed here but: Does anyone know if RH will ever release the studio version of "Alligator Moon" ?
I (as many DeadHeads) would love to hear it.
Because the 50th anniversary of the Dead is coming upon us, maybe Hunter will release it just for the sake of the fans ?

Built To Last lyrics subject?

Who were the subjects Built To Last were written for? It's dawned on me that "3 blue stars" could be a reference to 3 Sons In Service (2 of whom apparently did not return).

This song jumped out at me when my son shipped out to Marines Boot Camp, I had no idea why - it's the one song I have run thru my head each of the last 150 days, deeply but inexplicably connecting it to my son-in-service experience. Then, this morning, I learned of the "son-in-service" flags: 1 blue star = 1 son in Service; 3 blue stars = 3 sons in Service.

cheers,
Bob
