On this date in Deadhead history:
- In 1967, the Grateful Dead played the rooftop of the Chelsea Hotel in New York City.
- In 1982, the Grateful Dead played the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA.
...and in 1995, I woke up in a cold sweat thinking it was all a dream. Damnit.
Will never forget the Music and the Magic....... I miss it dearly.
Peace to all you fellow travelers who helped to make "IT" happen.
Someday we shall be there again!
And thank you Jerry........
If I think about it too much I can send myself spinning back to that day and feel that emptiness all over again. I still go to a lot of concetrts, but I will never have that feeling of anticipation before every set, every show and every song again.
Rest in Peace. You deserve nothing less after all the joy and love you and your music gave to so many of us. You may have left us in the physical sense, but your spirit and music continues to live within us.
I find it amazing that there were no shows on this date. Just curious, how many "dark" days were there. Given the sheer number of shows, I would think there wouldn't be too many.
BTW, thanks Aud for this feature, I really enjoy it.
Somewhere out there in another dimension I know you are sittin, strummin, laughin, and happy and I want you to know you will always be missed. Someday we too will get on the last bus outa here, the one that truly does stop at furthur... and I hope wherever that is... is where I'm going someday too!
And with that... my most favorite song and most favorite lyrics from that song.....
"Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world.
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own.
Wake now discover that you are the song that the morning brings.
But the heart has its seasons, its evenin's and songs of its owns."

I MISS YOU JERRY!!!!!!
Thinking of you, Jerry, on this fateful day....you're alive in our hearts and in our minds. Let there be songs to fill the air!
today 8/9/2007 need I say any more
MISS YOU BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jerry my Brother, I too suffered the long road. You brought me so much peace before I could let go of the madness. When I finally surrendered, you where there wailing away and carrying me home once more. I have never forgotten what its like, and wont ever. My young ones even know uncle Jerry. My wife is converted, she has her own trip and spins her own way. Cant change the past, just look back and smile, we are all part of that unbroken chain.
God bless you and your family my brother...Goin down the road feelin bad....just for today....ONE DAY AT A TIME...
Couple of quotes that caught my eye
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die. Thomas Campbell
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us. Helen Keller
“Little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.”
This day 95. Saddest day in Deadhead History, one of the saddest days in my life. I miss you and think of you everyday.
