The Dead No Longer Were Grateful

For me personally, the Grateful Dead did not have any one single, indispensable member, without whom the band would cease to be the Grateful Dead, and that included even Jerry Garcia. So I would list the two Irvine Meadows shows I went to, 09/18/03, and 06/24/04, and consider those my 24th and 25th Dead concerts.

Caught the last ones here

Went to the 1989 run here. This venue is easy to get to off I-405 or I-5 It was well planned out for traffic way back when and even when we got to the last run of shows it was apparent that the cops or security were not going to rush us out of the parking lot. Good seats with good views (saw one show in the 8th row and saw Bob N Rob the following year in the orchestra section) The lawn isnt too slanted so you could still dance and not fall into someone. Great venue!

So many shows, such little time

The greatest thing about living in San Fran in the 80's and early 90's was the Dead played so many shows in Cali!!

Going through these shows and remembering how many I went to is blowing my mind. I knew I saw them a boatload of times but I never thought this many.

My Backyard

I actually bought a house in the hills above Irvine Meadows, a mere two miles from backstage, and lived there through all these shows. Great memories of meeting a beautiful blonde in the beer garden, we were both very dosed and met again in the parking lot and helped her find her lost truck aboard the back of my Harley... up and down her carpeted halls!

See ya down the road,
