I just got out of The Marines and my Bro pulls up to my parents house and says "Get in, let's go to a show." I say " Sure, let me tell the folks and we're off!" I go inside and tell my parents that we're going to a movie and will be back in a few hours...go outside...get in the truck and my Bro says..." I didn't say we were going to a movie...I said we're going to a show!"...I say "What kind of show are we going to?"..." A Dead show!" he says..."Well alrighty!" and down to Eugene Oregon's Hult Center we went...and it was AWESOME! I got so many grate songs my first run...and I got this killer long sleeve white t shirt with the skull and roses skeleton couple dancing through a field of roses...it was a tour shirt not a lot shirt and my first! I was stoked, but later learned there were far better finds in the lot! I wore the sleeves off of it first...and now it's see through, but I still have my tank top of a shirt tucked away in a box with the other gems I collected on my 136 show 12 year run with the boys!
Gotta LOVE The Good 'Ol Grateful Dead!
Send Dr. Rhino an email (drrhino at rhino dot com) and he'll get in touch with the licensing folks. Thanks much!
My daughter encountered a similar situation when she adapted a skull/roses image with the name "Grateful Dead" for a custom boat flag that she designed a few years ago. When she submitted the artwork for fabrication, she was told to provide authorization. She ultimately got connected to someone in a legal position with the Dead org and after assuring the lawyer that it was a one-only item for personal, non-commercial use, she received approval quickly and graciously. I asked her if she could track down the correspondence, but it's been a bit too long. Good luck...
I'll let you know what I find out.
Yes, it's non-commercial use; to be mounted on the side of our barn. No night club, not selling the barn quilt as merchandise or intending to use it to market anything. Strictly for our edification.
This is noncommercial use, right? You're not selling the quilt or running a nightclub in your barn, etc.?
Not sure where to post this....
To anyone who may have an answer...
I'm having my barn painted this year and would like to have a local artist make a barn quilt with dancing bears on it (to hang on the side of the barn). Are there any licensing or other issues that need to be addressed beforehand? Please PM me with answer when convenient.
I read it a few times she is a very spiritual lady for sure. Yet some of her recollections of the days around Otis passing away are a bit off . Yes bobby was upset am sure we all would be. Yet when she says he did not sing a song that is not a real fact. He did sing during the San fran civic shows in January of 87 maybe not comfortably but he sang. The shows are on the archives and was at them also. The get back show. Shakedown Get Back.
Please do not take it as am dissing her am only stating what's known. The book is a very good read.
this should be released soon. really hoping for Eugene 1/22/78
Hubba hubba gettin my first post on.
