when is a "newbie" not a newbie ?

I'm new to this site and new to the streaming audio concept (not very tech savvy to put it mildly) but not at all new to the GD...I've already learned a few things...for example,the one lasting memory I have from the Dead/Allmans show at RFK(year?) is Jerry Bob and Phil (maybe not in that order) huddled together playing a somewhat disjointed riff...I thought it was in EYES OF THE WORLD which was a big reason why I bought WAKE OF THE FLOOD...but as we all know, what happens on the stage is rarely the same thing as what happened in the studio...Sadly, it has taken me nearly 40 years to find out I was right in the first place...sheesh...

What a long strange trip it's been

Howdy: as a kid who had a sister living in the Haight-Ashbury; I was introduced, as a teen, to the ''San Francisco-sound'' bands at their communal houses back in the mid-60's. My favorite group WAS NOT the Dead, but rather the Jefferson Airplane (as it was for many young males in my East Bay suburb..... Grace Was HOT; Jerry was not: also, the music wasn't condusive...for me... until 'Workingman's'! After that....No Contest!....go figure - JA morphed into the Starship, then fizzled out into Hot Tuna....& other 'splinter' groups.....while the band stayed truckin' for 20-25 more yrs.- w/me there for100's of shows for 19 yrs straight(?) - w/some SWEET Jerry shows thrown in up until '95 - and, speaking of 19 years after the fact: this website is truly, really, plus seriously Miraculous - just recently found it - I AM HAPPY TO HAVE ''bumped into'' you guys - makes an old 'Head' feel great, (grate?) and young, again: Keep on keepin' on! 'We need a miracle; Every day'

For example, GDTS TOO has a useful area on DNC

Right here.

DNC

Last I heard, Hunter was still involved, and that's official enough for me. In terms of being the official trademarked licensed etc. site, that's us, but folks are heartily encouraged to visit both places and join the conversation...

I'm perfectly willing to be corrected by someone with more inside knowledge, though!

old site question

Was just wondering if somebody in-the-know could tell me whether or not DNC which DeadNet used to point to is still an official site.

Newbie... was missing Jerry as the snow falls

and started thinking and that led me here. We are getting pounded with snow this winter in Chicago, and everytime it snows I start singing Brown-eyed Women... something about the imagery of a "tumbledown shack in Bigfoot Co"... and the emotion of "and the old man never was the same again". Anyways, thats how I got here. I want to get all the shows I was at onto cd, and collect all the art etc. from those years' tours. So I'm just gonna poke around!
