In My Living Room!

My 1st Dead show was Englishtown, 1977. This was my second, and it was in my living room, The Rectum, as many of us Philly folk called it. I was there for many milestones for the Flyers, including the win over the Russian team, and the Stanley Cup win over the Bruins. My first concert was here, Stevie Wonder, Jim Croce, The O Jays and the Raspberries. I was a regular attendee for several Alice Cooper, Yes, and Bruce Springsteen shows. But now, my new passion was being satisfied, with a four square of Mr. Natural in my head and friends all around, the boys (and Donna Jean) were in my town. And they were every bit as good as I could have expected. Still haven't gotten a tape of this show, but it does play in my head on special occasions.

May '78

My first Dead Show. I did not know what to expect but it was fantastic. I was 16 years old and with my buds and the show openned with my favorite song.The band was smokin and I found out what music could really do.And it only got better from there. Waiting for this show to be released.I would be first in line, as i usually was for Dead tickets.

Merry Pranksters

Also my first show, with seats on the floor. Ah, the Rectum - where else do you have to go down stairs to go to the bathroom (except CBGB)? Does anyone remember a large Merry Pranksters banner hanging from the upper section almost directly opposite the stage?

Ahh my first show also. I

Ahh my first show also. I think our tickets were nose bleed section so we sat behind the stage. Very interesting viewpoint and what a show! I was barely 17, had been to only a few concerts but now the bar was set and no one else could measure up!!

"One Man Gathers What Another

This was my second show, And after the first time there was no way I was gonna miss them. My Buddy and I Were quite tripped out at this show. There was times I actually forgot we were even at a concert.(lol) But with the Dead Playing that didn't last very long. When it was all over, It just made me want to see them even more. I couldn't wait until the next time around.

My First Show

Drove down to Philly with Two-Bit that rainy night. The windows were melting as we hit the Spectrum parking lot. Thankfully I wasn't driving. It was a night that will live as the gateway to the golden road.
Some of my deadhead friends dont give this night much respect, but to me it rules

First Show

This was my first of many many many shows. One of the great joys in my life. I knew nothing about them, boy did that change! I was just about to graduate from HS, I went with Martin, Kathy, Carlos, and Sue. I am having dinner with Martin tonite in Boulder Co.
Have a Grateful Day!!!!!!

It was a great show, it hooked me, now my kids are hooked.
