Last year the legendary Patti Smith wrote a real stunner of an essay in which, among other things, she dubbed the period from August 1 to August 9 "Jerry Week."
Don't miss the essay, but post your own thoughts here.
....a big thanx to all the people who believe in Jerry, the Dead, the music, psychedelia....and a special thanx for JERRY WEEK....the next best thing brothers and sisters:)
....you just in another dimension, brother....your legacy and music will live ON forever:):)
Wish you where here. Thank you for all that you gave to us, you are surely missed. Till we meet again. Peace, Love & Sharing
I don't always listen to the Dead like I used to. There are times when I feel like I need to listen to the Dead. That week is one of those times. I listened to the Dead every day, just to hear Jerry's voice. Happy Jerry week to everyone, and rest in piece Jerry Garcia.
I live to be dead and I am dead to live. Life is all we have and music is all we can ride. Enjoy every minute of it.
.....thank you jerry....
Well again, I've got the whole story here after the fact!

Feeling Jerry today in a big way. The love, the music, the laughter - all he brought and all he was.
Playing around on YouTube I keep finding some nice morsels. Here is another! Enjoy!
