"Going Home"

Told my work mates in Bristol that I was "going home to California for 3 days" - felt like I had walked into CA when I stepped off the tube in Wembley into a flood of tye-dyed Americans! The first of three days of great music and fun and lots of wonderful memories.

Great show...

...with the best-ever "Foolish Heart", I believe.

A limp Wang Dang Doodle aside this was a fine high-energy show (recently broadcast on The Professor's Deadpod, if you haven't heard it)

Rekindled my love of the GOGD, whom I'd lost track of through the '80's - and I spent the next five years catching up on what I'd missed

Shame it was to be my last Dead concert - there's nothing can replace them!

The Wire magazine in the UK

Hi everyone. This is The Wire calling. We're a UK magazine, and we are running a one page Epiphany from the writer Richard King about his experience of catching the Dead for the first time on the last night of their 1990 Wembley run. This is a very last minute request if any of you out there has photos from this night, or if not at Wembley, another from the same era, preferably with Bruce Hornsby in the picture. We're tight on deadline so please contact me as soon as possible if any of you can help. Please write to Thank you!

Brown-Eyed Women

I am listening to this concert on Sirius and it seems as though BEW was omitted from the playlist. It was sandwiched between Wang Dang Doodle and Queen Jane Approximately.

I was listening to this show on Sirius today... And Brown Eyed Women was definitely in there... Between Wang Dang and Queen Jane...
