Home again

For me, these shows were a bit of a homecoming. I grew up right in the neighborhood, but back then that area was all corn fields. When in high school, we parked along Ridgeland Ave, partying, drag racing and just plain hanging out right where the Jurzicks (spelling probably massacred), neighbors of my cousin, later built the World Music Theater. It was great to be there for the shows, and we got to visit family and friends between shows. Even saw a bunch of people at the shows who a few years before had been reciting the refrain, "The 60s are over, get with the times" when they encountered me, but had had an obvious change of heart. They were special shows for a lot of reasons, which made it all the more sad when we learned that they were Brent's last.

All the years combine
and melt into a dream...

All the great musicians end up Heroin junkies sooner or later: Jerry Garcia, John Kahn, Brent Mydland, Ray Charles, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, the list goes on and on. I noticed serious bug-eyes on Brent for about 6-8 months prior to his death....could have been his divorce driving him to the junk. Enough said about that.

Brent burned brightly and was a huge part of the Dead developing into the greatest touring band in history. His bluesey vocals and soulful Hammond B-3 licks added a dimension to the band like none of the other keyboard players. No disrespect to Pig, Kieth, and Vince, but Brent's B-3 and Leslie ruled, listen to Gimme Some Lovin' for an example. RIP.

but my friends can stick around...

Brent was in great voice and played like a monster this whole tour..By this show it seemed as if the whole band were all a little road worn,, as was the case for most end of the run shows. but. Brent was a gem... a great musician, and a superb talent that seemed to be growing more and more, whatever demons he had to deal with, life is never fair..he is missed by all, perhaps appreciated more now..another what if.. and so it goes.. RIP brother...

Some of these comments are ridiculous

with regard to Brent. I've never seen him where his eyes were't popping out of his head while playing.

Where's the guy that posted on the Archive that Brent actually died after the show and they put him in ice and into a road case and shipped him home?

They were not going to fire Brent. He was running the band onstage, practically. Like Garcia said on June 10 of that year, in reference to Phil not leaving the band, "Yeah - the rest of us are quitting."

Brent was what was going RIGHT for the Dead at that point, offstage problems notwithstanding.

I never heard Brent do a bad show. Maybe a few in '86 come to mind . . . but the guy was super consistent, super creative, gave them some balls that they desperately needed and never had again.
