The last one

My final grateful dead show, and I had a great run. I will never forget the final notes of Brokedown Palace. All that is left to say is fare thee well.

My Last Show

People around me were rude, very unkind. Nevertheless, the music made it all worth while. In recent years, every time I saw Jerry I would think, "this could be the last time..." Unfortunately, June 25, 1995 was. From Radio City to RFK, every show brought something special.

My last

Ran into a friend who had almost died in a terrible car crash the year before. "My 100th show!" he said. "Thank God you made it!" I said, hugging him.

I watched the show from the nosebleed seats at the 500 level, where Candace's lights were always SO beautiful. And afterwards, sitting in the parking lot at RFK, watching the lot fireworks and listening to the Disco van in the distance... I remember saying to another friend, "I would rather be here than anywhere else in the world right now." And it never crossed my mind that this would be the last time.

"Fair thee well, fair thee well, I've loved you more than words can tell..."

I didn't want to leave

Brokedown Palace. Rain coming down. The people I came with were waiting for me because they wanted to leave. I just stood there, lost in imagery that the lyrics brought to me, and then falling in love (as I always did) with a girl twirling around, arms sretched out, and embracing the rain and the wonder. I always get sad when I hear this song now. I hope Jerry is laying peacefully my the mythical riverside. I hope one day to join him. I believe he left the clues on how to get there.

I begged my wife to let me fly out to this show...

..but it was one too many. It would have been my lest show. It was the last time Dylan and Jerry played live together. I have the bootleg. I really regret this. The marriage only lasted 10 months anyway.

My Last Show

I went with a group of friends to the show the night before. I had an extra ticket so I managed to trade it for a ticket to this night's show. This was the only time I went alone to a show (as it took me too long to see the light I only made it to 7 shows) and I debated whether to even go. So glad I did. Being alone I did not participate in the parking lot scene so I went in early for Dylan and got to see Jerry play two songs with Dylan. Because I was alone (and I assumed I would be seeing them in NYC in the fall) I left after the first set and missed the Brokedown Palace everyone is raving about. Bummed about that but so glad I made the effort to go out by myself to see the magic one last time!!!
