    Do people ever reunite?

    It just makes me a bit sad that so many people are looking for folks that made an indelible impression on them. Do they find each other and reunite? Could they use this site to do that? I want to see a success story! Please! Here Comes Sunshine…!

    Rob Baker you out there brother

    It's been 30 years now since we last hitchhiked across across the land from sea to sea to sea over mountains across endless plains through National parks and forests through a desert or two north south east west whichever way the flip of a lucky quarter directed us to go . It's been 15 years or so since we last kicked around a hackysack somewhere near Dayton Ohio . You met and married your wife there and had started a family . We lost contact after that day . Never thought that as I drove away it would be the last time we would see or talk to each other. I tried to get in touch with you through Willie a couple years ago only to find that he had passed away ( my condolences he was a good friend and brother ) . I know this is a long shot since you have no presence anywhere on the net that I can find which is not a surprise considering where and how you were living and I assume still are . If by chance you should come across this message just know that your legend lives forever in memories with kind smiles . Peace be the journey and blessed be thy thumb . Hope you are well and that we will meet again if not in this lifetime then in the next .

    Looking for an old friend…

    Looking for an old friend from the early 80s's. His name was Skip, and attended many shows in that period, selling shirts and other things he made. He also had a store selling his dead shirts and other similar items in Queens, NY in 1983, when i knew him. Any one know who i am talking about and any idea if he is still with him and how to contact him?

    Marcus Pirate Stealie screen print artist? How to find vendor?

    Hi! I am trying to find Marcus, the shakedown street vendor artist who creates the soft black Tshirts screen printing a white pirate stealie with swords on the front. I would like to support this artist by purchasing 4 shirts from him as I did not have the money while at the last two shows - in NY and in PA. Thank you so much!!!

    Karen and/or Billy Mariott, Ventura, the Beanie Copter Crew

    My lovely wife Sue worked for Emily K in Santa Barbara around 1980, and she had a coworker named Karen Mariott, who was from Ventura, Ca. We became friends with Karen and husband Bill, who lived in Ventura. I last saw Bill in Ojai in 1985.
    They went to shows with the Beanie Copter Crew, in CalTrans orange.
    Karen used to bake goodies for Harry Popick, who mixed stage monitors
    We lost track of them many years ago, and hope to reconnect..

    Lisa Wolf---Ft Lauderdale Fl- Crazy Fingers Dancer-- Orion

    We connected after I left FL. I posted a " missed connection" on CL and a friend told you about it. Since then, you have disappeared; someone told you to "break ties with your past" Well, I disagree! ( for what that's worth.) I told you I think of you when I see Orion in the Eastern Sky. He rises in the winter when we met at the " Warf" where Crazy Fingers would play on Thursdays. I hope you or a friend sees this and asks you to reach out. I sure miss you.
    sincerely

Looking for any Heads in San Antonio or Austin. People who saw the band and still go to shows: ACL, stubbs, emos, anything. I ran into a couple of Heads at the Tame Impala show back in December and had a good time talking Dead and hanging out with like minded souls. Anyone else out there??

Looking for Dave... the "Feisty" one! All I can do is remind you of good times... The Dead show at Memorial Stadium Seattle... just before Jerry died. The rooftop of the parking garage... the Husky game... Green Lake... Best of all: lunch in South Park when the cops "caught" us. (Well it's hard to call that the "best". Every time I saw you it was the "best time".) We still have a connection all these years later! I can feel it. Please contact me!! DAMMIT!!!

Hey Dizzy, Darryl, Katman, Woz, Jon, Cue, Carl, Bob and the rest of the guys from Fall 1973 at Geary Hall Penn State University Park, are you out there? Europe '72 was playing all the time and the air was filled with sweet smoke. You also lived in the Mars Hotel on College Ave in Sun's Slums after moving out of the dorms. I'd love to hear from you,-Gary

Hi there - I figure this is probably one of the safest places on the interwebs to post this, so here goes. I live in Philly, am a huge music lover, and I've been slowly getting turned onto the Dead over the last 6 months or so, but I don't really know where to start. For one thing, I'm overwhelmed, to say the least, by the size and scope of their output. As a longtime fan and collector of Phish (is it kosher to admit that here? j/k), I know what it means to be consumed by a band's music, to know their history and the musical tendencies of the band members backwards and forwards… but that makes it all the more frustrating for me, not knowing where to start with the Dead; there's just so much MORE, in every way. For another thing, it's all well and good for me to go to sites like deadlistening.com, or poke around archive.org, and listen to whatever I happen to find, but going it solo just seems so antithetical to the spirit of community that this band has inspired, and continues to inspire. I don't know a soul who is a Dead fan, but I really want this to be something I can share, and not just keep to myself. Simply put, I need help. I can tell that there's a universe of music here, waiting to reveal itself, but I think I need a guide of sorts to get me started. So if you're a Deadhead living in the Philadelphia area; if you're the sort of person who hears an amazing jam and wants to share it with everyone you know; if you're willing to help a new seeker make some sense of the Dead - find an entry point, so to speak - I'd love to hear from you. You can PM me here on dead.net. Thanks! -- Jon

Deadheads in Missouri? I know there's some in Kansas City besides me. I know I'm not the only one. I've liked the GD since the 80's, even though I listen to the rock station, I do love the GD. They are in my Ipod touch,and my Ipod shuffle, and in my CD player in my car. A guy named Rob, whom I used to go out with, liked them,and a was a big deadhead, and he started me on liking them.

hi everyone. I admit I am a new Dead Head - never been to a show (in fact most of them happened before I was born). But I am taking a Religion and Popular Culture class at NYU and I am writing about Dead Heads, the effect the band has had and how the culture started. I would love to hear from some of you about the experiences you've had with the band and how they have changed you! Feel free to send me a message on here or my email, maiacanter@gmail.com Thanks so much! I hope to hear from some of you soon :)

New to this site.. Searching for my birth father with little leads.. I was conceived in Eugene oregon in the summer of "79. My mother devorah met him and they were only together for a short while.. I imagine, there are many others like me, products of a free loving time:)He went by the name winddancer. I do not have his birthname.. I believe he frequented santa cruz california, not sure if he was from there or not. any leads, info or ideas will be gratefully appreciated.. He would most likely be in his late 50's to early 60's now.. I know the circle was tight back then, so I am sending this out into the universe, that there is the chance that someone may have known this man.. Thank you, Sarah

I'm looking for a web-savvy Head who is interested in partnering with me on a new GD-based site. I have 300,000-plus words of content, and need a programmer and designer to make it live. Ideally this would be someone in the Atlanta area, but could be anywhere in the US. This has commercial potential and I would expect a match to my investment (with shared profits, of course). PM me please! Steve

Some Time ago , she decided everyone around her was responsible for lost youth . she came to you confused and in need of something to fill the void ,she thought she was not loved so she asked you for the attention she desired . some of you took advantage of her niativity. for this i curse you . some day i will rain justice upon you . some of you genuinly nurtured her offering the frindship she so desperatly needed, for this i thank you . she belongs to the future now for the candle which lit her past has extinguished, we will miss her. and always hold a place for her in our hearts . if you see her tell her . you know her as gratefulgigi.I was her husband , her lover ,and her freind,my life is better for having lived by her side.

Lonesomewolf,So, so sorry. Know that gratefulgigi was so kind to me once via this space. I was lamenting wanting to locate a version of 'Lovelight" sung by Pigpen and Janis on a thread somewhere here on this site so long ago and she kindly pointed me to a version I had never heard before. I've always remembered that, and her. Strange how a small act of random kindness can stick with one and it was with great sadness I read your post. "Statements just seem vain at last....."

I think some further elaboration is needed, before we should assume that our dear Gigi has departed. From her activity on her Facebook page, I am assuming that lonsesomewolf is grieving their past relationship, and not her life. I have written Gigi a message about this post, and let's all hope very hard that she responds!!18

Paps told me that Gigi was at a fest this weekend, so our hope that she is alive and well seems to be the truth. I think in this case your post is heinously rude, lonesomewolf, to get people unnecessarily worried and sad!!!!!!!!

Your pain is evident from your post.....it is awful to feel that way (believe me I know) . I do not know if I am one of those whom you are cursing or thanking, but I am glad to have known Gigi in this place for a few years now and your post really freaked me out and seems to have conveyed a wrong message or meaning. I only wish you and her well.
