    Looking for Cindy Wright…

    Looking for Cindy Wright. Bay Area deadhead who used to work at BASS tickets and who was seeing the Dead since her first show at the closing of the Fillmore West in July 1971.

    Anyone know this lady Deadhead? She made these beautiful hand-painted parking lot shirts in 1980. I bought one. They were a limited edition of 100. I just wonder if she is still around. Thanks.

    Hey now!

    Anyone know how to find the person or people in charge of licensing for Dead-related stuff?

    I'm trying to navigate through Rhino and the only licensing stuff I can find seems to be about music. What about gear?

    Thanks in advance for any help or answers provided!

    Lenny, Lenny, Lenny!!!!! I know you!! I don't actually. I know of you because back somewhere between 95-98, I was in Santa Cruz when my friend Paul Rush rode his motorcycle all the way from Delaware to hopefully meet up with me. Unfortunately I had left to go back to PA three days before his arrival. We wrote many letters back and forth, and Paul wrote about you, and how you had helped him when he first got to Santa Cruz. I'm hoping you know of some way to reach him because somehow we lost touch and I've been looking for him for many many years. My name is Tarah Smith- aka Cordy. My email address is autodidact43@outlook.com

Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. Psalm 74 Looking for all Dead Heads in Darrow or Compton at BGSU! Radio DJ, Pool Man, Cliff, and any others, very bad with names, my only dead album back then was Workingman's Dead but there were some others that had every album at BGSU

I was the guy in the floor level crip section in a purple wheelchair. Names I remember: Wayne and Judy. Wayne saw his first show in '68, Judy around '90 like me. Then there was the bald dude with the iPhone I talked to of and on through most of the show, and then there was the usher who volunteered for the shows who I had a really nice chat with and who basically danced the night away as far as I could tell - and did her "job" at the same time. Neat! Oh, and the guy in the white shirt I chatted with on BART on the way to the show. Anyway, I had a great time and you all were beautiful. :) Please contact me if you are comfortable doing so, even if I didn't mention you.

Hey folks,I'm a british deadhead who recently got married and moved back to the states after 20 years(now living in Tennessee). Between 1989 and 1991 I was on and off tour and attended around 75 shows in total. I had some good friends back then and I'm wondering if any of them are still deadheads or linked up to the scene in some way? Its been ages but if anyone knows these folks please let them know I'm on this forum and ask them to get in touch. 'Greg' lived in Washington state and drove a black chevy van to every show in 1991. He had long black hair and beard. He said the Deadheads was his only family because sadly he'd lost his real family in a car crash. We toured together in the Fall tour 1991 and drove from the West coast to 3 shows in Ohio, and then the 9 night run at MSG in NYC. Those were my last shows and I flew back to England after that. In Spring tour 1989 I knew this cool couple Greg and Christine; we toured the last half of Spring tour 1989 starting in Cleveland, and going to Milwaukee, Chicago, Minnesota Stpaul. We then travelled back to the West coast, spending a week at Cougar Hot springs on route, and finally ending up in Santa Cruz, where we lived all summer. Actually theres a whole bunch of folks I knew back from tour in 1989, some of which I'm still in touch with, but mostly lost contact with: Chris and TJ (the hitchhikers to Atlanta), Chris and Amy, Chet, Jim (who drove us all the way in his van)? Anybody still in touch with these folk from '89? Suuch a long shot, but hey, just though it would be interesting to post... Lookin' forward to some 2010 shows... Jules the astrologer

For those of you who've been following this forum and wondering if anyone ever hooks up with old friends, well, yes, they do! Yesterday I saw the message that Brent's sister left and I called her. She wasn't home, but I had a nice chat with her husband and look forward to talking to Chrissy soon. I also heard from someone I'd never met who knew Brent. So if you're looking for some long lost friend, don't give up hope. They're out there somewhere! BTW I'd still love to hear from Chris Currado or anyone else who knew Brent. marj_mcc@yahoo.com

Looking for my old friend, Jeff. We lived on the same block in Newport News, VA from 1986-1988? You and Scott, who also lived on same block, introduced me to the the music and you guys took me and my son Paul to our first Dead shows at Hampton Coliseum in 1987. I also took you to my family Thanksgiving gathering one year. You were originally from CA (the Bay area I believe) and I think you moved back there. If you see this please send me a private message or a post here. Would love to hear from you! Preston

I'v been looking for my dog since september. Her name is RainyDay. She is a brendle boxer and around 2yrs old. I took ownership of her last year . Just to finde out that the guy I got her from stole her from lot as a puppy.I thought that it was cool that she made it back. She is loved by my children and myself . When I got her she definatly needed some love and care. She became one of my children very quick. Her head was to count in a rowe of children under blankets at night. She got a bed time kiss as well. My husband did a very shady thing. He asked if he could keep her with him while I took a run to oregon with my children to pick up my oldest boy. He said he just wanted to have some one to sleep next to while I was gone. Just houres after I left he passed her off to some traviler some where between sonoma and mendo county and then he him self left and I havn't seen ethore since. A friend said they had seen RainyDay with some kid outside of Willits CA in september and they where heading south. We are still looking for her and lover her very much.If you have heard of her or have seen her since september please let me know. I'm afrade she's being handed off and not loved and taken care of properly.We've lost everything inclouding daddy. So we just want are dog back!Lovin you all
