I was a Metal Head. My friends took me to my first Grateful Dead show. Need I say anything? I've been a Dead Head ever since.

Does anyone remember...

When the goon squad killed that kid, I think his name was Mark?

Adam Katz, I think he was?

I think in the late '80s, but I'm not sure.

Adam Katz

Yes, that was his name. I remember his parents had a running ad in Relix asking for info. Very sad but not surprising. When I was seeing the Dead in those days, I was with a guy who was 6'6" at least and close to 300 pounds. I remember watching the goons going after others who were slight of build for drinking beer, but Bernie was as big or bigger than the goons so they never bothered us. Very sad and stressfull situation. I am convinced that the goons killed that kid. I am originally from the East Coast and was used to heavyhandedness by guards and cops. I remember now the picture of Adam, very much like someone who those goons would attack. Not one of my best memories, but I have thought of Adam often over the years. Definitely a cover up, have had my own problems in NJ due to attending Dead shows.

I remember that night it happened the security goons were all hyped up that night. They thougt they could just do whatever they please to anyone too. i don't think justice was ever served for Adam.

1st Show

I will never forget my First show. It was a Sunday the sky was blue, not a clould in the sky. The heads where kind and the music was perfect for that moment. A day the would change my life forever.
