Attendees of this show
my second show
I got miracled to this show. I had been slinging grilled cheese in exchange for a ride, and food, and booze for some nice folks who picked me up in Atlanta. Thanks Mt. Frog. Anyway, quite unexpectedly Senor Frog came along this second night and kicked me down a ticket. I was so happy dancing and smiling and shaking my bones. Alot of people say these weren't the best shows the dead played but it sure seemed good to me.
The eyes.> playin'.> Terrapin to open the second set was what i imagine a seventies show would entail.
Boy- Jerry was so cleerly ills and I had bad seats but oddlly
my last memory was weeping as he played Stella Blue and
having that odd feeling it was a fitting end song to hear..not that I suspected I would never see him again but he did
not look well--labored breathing..alas..
It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free- there is nothing you can hold for very long...Stella Blue!
In the end there's still that song....my mind will always remember that as Jerry's farewell song to me no matter what
the set list sez..funny how memory plays tricks on you...
Now maybe it was the LAST song and then they came out for encore so that is why I forgot.....but it was moving...
even the show in Orlando in 1991 the only song that seemed
great was Morning Dew- Brent loss was a hard hit that IMHO they never really recovered from musically..but I know Vince and Hornsby did some good shows...
I miss old Jerry!! As Hunter song says...down the road...
the sun shining with a beard!

I treated myself to these Miami shows for my birthday. I went up to Orlando first to see Disney and Epcot. Got the surprise of my life running into Jerry and his wife at Epcot. I didn't go to the Orlando show that night, glad I missed the tear gas. These Miami shows were the last time I saw Jerry. I remember listening to Row Jimmy on the way to work in 95 when I got the call that Jerry had died. I am so glad Phil and Bob are carrying the torch with Furthur. Can't wait for the Boston shows next week.
