Pigpen Photos and film footage

Does anyone out there have any leads on where I can garner any kind of photos or film footage of Pigpen? Basically, I need stuff that doesn't have huge "usage fees" because I'd like to do a documentary on Pigpen and I can't afford to pay a lot for this stuff. Most of the footage, for instance, on You Tube is from "Festival Express," a film with a major distributor. I am also looking for older stuff from the mid-late sixties, any thoughts anyone?
Thanks!

I always thought that Ron

I always thought that Ron got the nickname because the man could take 2 suitcases into a hotel room and within an hour or two would have it lookig like he had lived there for months!! A path to the door, a path to the bed & a path to the bathroom! He explained it by saying "Just trying to get ORGANIZED" Guess I spent too much time with him! heh heh Certainly left his mark on me & I'm STILL trying to get organized!! Good thing I can create art in mass chaos or I would NEVER get anything done!!
I was just a little kid, but remember that showering was not a priority of his!! He and Jerry were very different that way.... I think Schultz' Pigpen and Ron just had a lot in common! I LOVE AND MISS YOU RON!! Wish we could have cereal together again!! I am old enough to have beer on it now!! Still don't think it would be good! I am so glad that I got to spend so much time with you!!
See you on the other side soon! Hopefully not too soon!!
Peace and LUV, Tofu and Carrots!! ;p

pigpen era

Pigpen era was great. Lovelight was the song that got me on board.Chinatown shuffle is one of my all time fave songs.
I would love to hear the "pigpen solo" album if anyone has it.
He sure didnt get long to live - but he made one hell of a impact

God bless him...

".......... like a stingray-on a four dayride....."

I don't check alot of these that often--but-since 67-68 due to older brother and his friends-after the Beatlesand Stones-Cream--all this otherstuff was incredible.The thing that grabbed me from the onset was the songs were more than 3 mins. long! I'm still young at this time-but the "harp" always intrigued me as a kid--then seein Pigpen and hearin him ramble on was cool! This in turn lead my to the blues -where they got it from in the first place.I was lucky to see Pigpen-but only about 4-5 times--east coast shows-joined DEAD HEADS- from the album-all that good stuff! As we all know-well too much- The Dead-and us- were into substances to "heighten" our awareness-Oh-Yeh!! I read a quote-somewhere from Pigpen about this-he said...." I've seen some mean beasts behind Jack Daniels-I don't need no scientific beasts runnin round my brain!!!!!! BLUES MAN!

Pigpen & The HELLS ANGELS

I was reading about Pigpen on this site some were. The Comment was made that some one thought Ron had some kind of ties with the HELLS ANGELS, as I read along it became clear to me that there are some facts that some people may not know.

I am sharing this information not to discredit the man more to honor him and to show how well respected Pigpen was by a lot of people in all walks of life.

Ron McKernan aka (Pigpen) is the only ever honorary Member of the HALES ANGELS M/C CLUB.
That is all I can tell you, and it is a fact. No one before or after Pigpen has ever got a HELLS ANGELS Patch this way ever. There is a lot to be said for that. The one thing I do won’t to say, and I hope every one remembers one of his favorite quotes. “An’t got no time to hate brother”. . . .

Thanks Dead Head 81 Crew Tucson (hang around)
