thanks for the memories! goosebumps and all!
I had no ticket and did not get in but I am so glad to have been at the last show of the last Spring tour. John Christie and I drove back to Atlanta in his seventy something brown Nova, sunburned, beat, and spiritually recharged.
this was my first and only show, and i can't express how sad i was after listening to the boys and hearing later in the summer that i would not get to see them again! I have met a lot of friends over the years because of our shared interest in with what these fellows started and i am grateful for that! I hope the spirit they fostered goes on for a long time to come... :)
I was having a blast by this time on tour. I was 18 years old and thought I had life all figured out. I had a great group of friends by that time, and had pretty much figured out how to take care of myself. It seemed like to me that I was gonna be on tour forever. I was living in a dream. I have great memories of hanging out that day with my girl and enjoying the music. It makes my soul smile remembering those days, I just wish I could remember more of the music.
My orange 73 westy was in fine shape. Before the show, we hit this park down the road form the lot and found lots of balloons, played frisbee and enjoyed the beautiful morning. They didn't open the lot until like noon. I saw this guy trippin pretty good out in the lot and he was running really fast lookin over his shoulder. Apparently, he didn't see the tree that he ran into. Got interviewed by local news channel in lot. I felt a little funky during 1st set, but it was good to be in the arms of my loving girlfriend. Second set opened with EYES and that got me goin. Lots of spinning dresses and hula hoops. Jerry had a smile as he looked over the top of his glasses at the crowd. This was my last show.
visions of johanna was beautiful...this was my last show.
And a pretty weak one at that, IMO. Just OK.
Jerry seemed missing in action for much of the show...but that Visions of Johanna was the highlight. A sweet final remembrance.
I lived In Tampa For A Few Months in 1995 ... Hit Town On April 3rd And The Show Was The 7th. No Tickets ... Just Missed The Black Crowes Set ... Weather Was Perfect.
Unbroken Chain Had The Sound Effects! VERY COOL.
For me a memorable night. The Crows got things going for me, and the Dead felt good. I hadn't seen them since Tampa '85 (couldn't get tix in the 90s), so it had been quite a while (first was 5-21-77 Lakeland - $6.95 day of the show, walk in and sit in front of the stage. Met Donna in a van knitting before the show).
I was distracted by the teleprompters and Jerry's stillness. But during a trip down the halls with the spinners, "Visions" hit me quite nicely, thank you. The double-Dylan tasted good.
I remember sitting on a curb right by the spiral ramps waiting for a friend, and listening to all the little bells on the girls skirts. Funny, I never noticed it before. It was like a river of delicate notes slowly dissolving the show.
Thanks, guys. Hope the 2010s bring you good times.
This was my last show. For some reason I thought they opened with "Here comes Sunshine" jerry did not sound good at all. His solo's were just a bunch of mixed up (out of tune)notes. Corrinna and Days were a 1st for me. It was love at first sight. I thought to myself at the show ........They sound terrible and don't see them touring much longer.
The Black Crows sounded better for me... this show sucked.
Sorry people :(
This was my last show so I'm gong to comment a llittle more.
For me....I feel the band were in there prime in the 80's, I never seen a show with Keith or Pigpen, so maybe I am wrong. But Brent was the backbone of the band, not only was he a great song writter but kicked ass on the keys. When Brent died it all seemed to slowly go down hill.......It was never the same.
Bruse was good, real good. And too bad he did not stay with the band. I never like Vince, the way he played,and his voice sounded like shit. He did not fit in the band at all. I fell they could have found somone ALOT better them him and why they did'nt .........who knows??
I just want to thank the band and whole GD organization. You molded me into the loving. peaceful, person I've become. Thank you for all the great memories, all the wonderful people I have met, all the great cities I seen, and most of all, THANK YOU for the music. You guys filled my live with cheer!!
I am so lucky to be born is this time era.......Think about it............if I was born a 100 years before or 100 years after, Ive never would have known who the the Grateful Dead were.
I've probably would have been on tour with bethoven.....lol
Keep the Cd's and DVD's comming. And I'll keep buying them.
Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can tell.
