Because it would still be playing when I got back. I liked drums hated space.

Gr8ful says when you hear the first notes of Don't Ease, Deal, or Music Never Stopped, it's a beeline to the peeline and then up to the counter for another 90 Shilling. 2nd set busters were Throwing Stones, Victim or the Crime, any Brent tune, and of course Drumz/Space.

Pee breaks

I always went between sets if for no other reason than to encounter different people than those around me while the show was on. I tried to never go during the show unless it was an emergency, which by definition pretty much ruled out any sort of planning. Frankly, I'm astounded that so many actually decided to consciously think this through...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

No More Day JObs

OK--they usually played this song as an encore. Man, it seemed like every hot show Jerry would play this song as an encore. This song sent me out early a couple of times. Now that I listen to it years later the boys could play this song real rocking. Still hate it. I mean, Richmond '85--GLORIA!!!! then Jerry plays day Job. AAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!

Day Job ruined alot of smiles in my time. You know, I used to love Touch Of grey until '87. Seemed like they played it every other night. I know they played it on every stop that year. The thing aboput that album was that it was great that the boys got their just rewards but it brought alot of shit to the scene.

I'd stay thru Space

Victim or the Crime
Dear Mr. Fantasy
Don't Cheese Me In
Walkin Blues

I always found drums/space interesting enough to listen to, but I love weird experimental stuff more than the avg head I guess.

Tennessee Jed

I would rather hear a thousand more Me and My Uncles than to have to sit thru another Tennessee Jed. Dont know why, the song drives me nuts. Its also a great time to go cause it wouldnt be as crowded as it could be during a bobby song.
Stella Blue and Black Peter, are you guys out of your minds?

I don't I've ever gone to

I don't I've ever gone to the bathroom at a show while the Dead were onstage.

bathroom break

Certainly a Bobby song! I did really like to hear Memphis Blues, Sugar Mag, Lost Sailor, Music Never Stopped, Stranger. But Throwing Stones or Victim would be a beer run.
Surprised that Stella Blue is unpopular. And Black Peter. A few weeks after Jerry died I kept waking from a dream one night because Jerry kept looking into my eyes and smiling. Like right in my face, and I would wake up. In the morning I picked up my guitar and played Black Peter start to finish, but I had never even tried it before!

NO, it wasn't all roses...

the GD moment which always got me to realize I needed a quick comfort break was.....

when the bright lights came on, the pupils completely dialated and the encore was over!

this is when {in my mind} the body took over and it was time for a comfort break and then time to hook up with my brothers and sisters for a cold drink a sandwich a dry shirt and start headin to the next show.

stay safe and feel good!
