went to see both RFK shows and ended up sitting next to a kid who was seeing the boys for the first time! I remember the police in RIOT gear after the show let out and the crowd afterwards wasn't rowdy to warrant that type of thing- full plexi shields, being pushed through cattle lines to the parking lot, very out of hand. Loved the drum scene under the overpass and had a great pre-show time both days. HOT as hell, soooo humid both days. the next night was the RAIN show, box of, samba in and Beatles Rain. Ended up going alone cuz a friend couldn't get a babysitter and having a good time with all those about. next the river, hackysackin, frisbee, and lots a nyce people. The night before, my friend's husband took a cam corder about the lot and made a hilarious tape which now is our little documentary on the last daze. Maybe you all are on it! Thanks for the memory. Jer died a few days later. Ami
My last show... The day Jerry died, I heard the announcement over the radio; I pulled my vehicle over and cried. I'll always miss the time I had on tour, forever...
I was glad I got to hit this one last show, even though it seemed to be lacking the energy of a few years earlier, and Jerry didn't seem to be soloing much during the songs.
ON THE WAY OUT I SAIID TO THE GANG I WAS WITH THAT "SOMETHING DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT" AND I WAS HAVING PREMONITORY BAD VIBES A LA FEELINGS OF DREAD
SO WHAT DID I DO? I SOLD MY TICKETS IN THE LOT AFTER THE SHOW FOR SUNDAY NIGHT [THE NEXT SHOW] AND GOT FACE VALUE FOR WHAT COULD'VE BEEN ONE FINAL SHOW
IRONY AND COINCIDENCE --I NEVER SOLD A SHOW AND SKIPPED IT TIL THIS SHOW
AND SOUNDED LIKE ONE IN THE FIRST SET
IN THE SECOND SET HE CAME ON STRONG AND REJUVENATED WHICH TO ME MEANT A BIG "UH OH"
JERRY WAS REALLY HOOKED ON SMACK AT THIS POINT
GOD BLESS HIS SOUL HE MADE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAPPY BUT STILL WAS SEARCHING FOR HAPPINESS HIMSELF
JERRY SAID TO RS : "SOME DAY I WISH I COULD BE PART OF THE AUDIENCE"
It was all but over, I had basically stopped going after '93 just to much BS to deal with and the set lists were no longer to my liking. I was spoiled and now very Grateful for every time I got into see the best band in the land.Thank you boys for a real good time!!
Nothing to tell now, let the words be yours I am done with mine...
Man, I was fifteen feet from that tree that was hit be the lightning.
But i was really blown away by my second, and unfortunatly, last, Shakedown.
>>Anybody got a sticker/T with the Shakedown struttin' on a lightning bolt?
Does anyone know how I might contact the 3 persons who were hit by lightning right before the show began on 6/25/1995. I believe their names were Kristin Daniel, Kira Lee, & John Pongel. Does anyone know them or what happened to them in life?
Sure glad I made the trip to DC to see what turned out to be my last Jerry show.
Nice to see the remaining Dead guys keeping the vibe alive tho.
Going to see 7 Walkers tonight.
Just saw the Walkers on 12/9 and got to meet Bill and get the setlist autographed by him and the other Walkers.
Will be wearing my autographed shirt tonight.
What a thrill it was to meet and talk to Bill!
"nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile"!:)
It's hard for me to recall the quality of these shows for some reason. I do remember the highlight of these two nights for me was Jerry coming out to play with Dylan's band during the day, and they played Rainy Day Women #12 & 35. Looking back on it, it was one of my best Jerry moments. To see Jer and Dylan side by side singing "Everybody must get stoned" was quite enjoyable! I remember a big smile on Jerry's face, and he was bobbin his knees (like he would do on Liberty), about as much movement as you would get out of him during this period. I was with some kind friends from Cali, and we fully took advantage of this moment. I also remember being satisfied with the bust out of Black Muddy River.
I had just graduated from high school one month before this show and a dead fan for many years before. A group of about 20-25 of us all went down to the show together from Baltimore. We camped out in December to buy the group of tickets from the local Ticketmaster at the mall. Good memories from that night too. Amazing to see Dylan with Jerry. Loved Iko Iko and Black Muddy River. Whole day and night was great. So wish I saw them before 1995 !! My son and I listen to the Dead all the time in my car and now he even requests that I put it on, if it's not on. I love that !!! Thanks for everything you continue to give to all of us Jerry, even in your passing. RIP, my sweet friend !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
