Chicago Train to Further show on 11/13/10

My brother and I boarded the train at the Damon/North Avenue station, and you were already on the train. I sat across the aisle from you and noticed you had a kind face. Your tousled hair peeked out from beneath your stocking cap. I kept stealing glances at you, wondering at yoru back story. The older woman sitting behind you asked to borrow your cell phone to make a call. You dialed the number for her and let her talk until the train stopped at the venue's station. We exited the train together and talked about the previous night's show and our anticipation of this night's show. My brother wanted to get a beer at the tavern across the tracks before the show, so we parted company. I wish we could have talked longer or exchanged contact info. my wildest dreams I never thought I'd post a missive looking for a lost connection.

In search of Deborah.. Furthur NYE

Hello family :)

I was wondering if you could maybe help me out with a little something. I'm trying to find this older woman that I met at the Bill Graham this past new years, or if this is you, even better:

Her/Your name is Deborah. I'd say she's in her late 50s-mid/late 60s with long white hair. She was sitting down in the handicapped section (I believe with another gentlemen, maybe her husband?) on Phil side down on the floor of the Bill Graham this past new years (2010-2011).

During the show, she/you were taking pictures of a short girl named Lauren with brunette dreads and a black sparkly scarf. You told her that it was like looking at a reflection of yourself from years past.

That girl, Lauren, is me. And Deborah, if you by chance see this, I'm so sorry I haven't gotten in contact with you! I lost your business card with your contact info amongst the madness that was new years eve and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to properly say goodbye- there was a situation with a friend that needed to be attended to immediately.. ay yi yi what a way to ring in the new year!

Regardless, I really want to find you and connect with you! There are so many questions I want to ask! So, Deborah, if you see this, or fellow deadheads, if you know who I'm talking about and can help me out, please please PLEASE email me at and let me know!

Here's to putting all of the positive energy out into the universe and manifesting our reunion! Hope our paths will cross soon, mama! :)

Love & light,

Cornell / May 8th, 1977

I'm just in the very beginning stages/brainstorming a book on the concert from 5.8.77.

Widely considered to be the best show the band ever played, I'm hoping to gather enough photographs, recollections and other assorted information to turn the book into an oral biography. But of a show, not a person.

If you were there and would like to tell me about the show/what you recall/what you saw please be in touch. No memory is too small!

Feel free to email me at

South Jersey Deadheads Unite!

I'm in need of a few good, kind hearted, trustworthy heads in or around South Jersey to make my life less lame. I currently living alone in a house I rent out in the sticks and have little but my volunteer job, xbox live (such a time waster), and my art to keep me company. Not looking for sympathy or pity friends, just a few good heads to kick it with in my little house in the beautiful countryside of south Jersey. I have a HUGE backyard that has so much potential, and no one to share it with, so if you live in Jersey and feel like chillin' around a campfire before the winter hits, or could fill my house with the blessings and company of good family then shoot me a message on here and we shall see what comes of it.

Much love, be good family...

Coming to Chicago For November Further Shows


I just saw the Greek Theater and three Red Rock shows. I am coming to Chicago in November and have an extra ticket for both shows. I have not decided where to stay but the Intercontnental with its incredible indoor pool is an option. I am looking for a lovely lady to accompany to dinners (at least one at Bayless' place) and to the shows and to wherever else we decide would be fun.

I am single, white male. 55 years old. Lawyer in San Francisco.

if you are interested, you can reply to and we can carry the conversation on from there.
