Merl Saunders Washington :: 02/14/34 - 10/24/08 Merl Saunders by Bob Minkin Merl Saunders was born Merl Saunders Washington (he dropped the "Washington" for show biz purposes) in San Mateo, California on February 14, 1934; he passed away early this morning (October 24, 2008) at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco. Saunders grew up in San Francisco and was a proficient piano player by age 10. He attended Polytechnic High School, Served in the Air Force and Attended University of Mainz in Germany. Saunders married Betty Crenshaw and leaves behind three children (Anthony Saunders, Merl Saunders Jr., Susan Saunders) and a number of grand kids. Saunders became one of the preeminent Hammond B-3 player of his generation; beginning his long strange trip by apprenticing with the great Jimmy Smith. In 1970 Saunders began playing with Jerry Garcia in the Bay Area under bands called Legion of Mary and then Garcia/Saunders. The duo recorded a number of famous albums including Heavy Turbulence, Fire Up, and Live at the Keystone. Their 1990 collaboration, Blues from the Rainforest, was a Billboard Top 10 in the New Age category. Saunders contributed to the Grateful Dead album Grateful Dead (1971), and in the mid-1980s worked with the band as musical director for the "Twilight Zone" television show. He became known as the senior member of the jam band scene having played with Phish, Blues Traveler and Widespread Panic. He was instrumental in allowing young talent to play and record with him, giving first opportunity to the likes of Sheila E, Chris Hayes (Huey Lewis & the News), Bonnie Hayes (Billy Idol) and Bob Steeler (Hot Tuna). In parallel to his rock career, Saunders worked as a jazz trio player, performing and recording with Harry Belafonte, Frank Sinatra, Lionel Hampton, Miles Davis, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, and Paul Butterfield. He also contributed to the scores of the films "Heavy Traffic" and "Fritz the Cat." http://www.merlsaunders.com/
I saw Merl with JGB a few times and spoke with him briefly at the Stone on Broadway in SF. He was a great musician and a wonderfully warm human being. The world was a better place for him having lived in it.
jeez. thats too bad.Peace, The Kid

RIP Merl. thankx so much for everything. may the four winds blow you safely home... love and peace.
thank you cc .. rest in peace Merl .....
look out into the night sky in the next few weeks about two hours before dawn and see the zodiacal lights. once thought to be light reflecting from earths atmosphere, is now known to be light reflected from random particles from one meter to microscopic in size extending from the atmosphere of the sun to the orbit of mars and are spread out along the plane of the ecliptic (the path the sun follows throughout the year). Hence the reason for the name Zodiacal Light is because it is seen projected against the zodiacal constellations.The best time to see the Zodiacal Light is when the ecliptic appears most nearly vertical to the horizon. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, the best morning views in the eastern sky will come during the next few weeks without the interference of bright moonlight. Conversely, for those who live in the Southern Hemisphere, the best views now are in the western evening sky right after sunset A ghostly slanted pyramid,the Zodiacal Light is something you have to see to believe.
yall wont BELIEVE what happened last night. a tornado touched down down the street from my school, followed the road to the school, and ripped up the fron tlawn before moving on past the school building and into the woods where it dissipated (is thqat the correct word?) it was scary shite (excuse my french) no one was hurt thank god and we regained power and phone service really quickly. Peace, The Kid
So glad you are ok!!

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question but....Did anyone see the Feb 14th 1970 video of Dark Star that was on youtube?? The video (yes video not Aud) went for 10 minutes and looked like it was taken from the front row or so. And it def was of the Feb 14th dark Star as I have this on tape and double checked. If so, it would have to be the earliest Dark Star on video. Who posted it???and does anyone have a copy of that???? I even emailed the bear and he seemed to think it was a fake, but i have no doubt about it.. Cheers
can't find it on youtube. please post up the link or embed it into a post. to do that, simply copy and paste the embedded link into your post. peace.
Hi. Nope it was taken down a few months ago. It was posted by someone called Username99999 or something like that whose account has since "been suspended". I'm telling you it was the exact Dark Star, and this guy posted absolutely heaps of GD stuff. He wrote at the time a detailed account of how it was recorded etc. and transferred. I tried to copy it to a cd but it didnt work. I also added it to my list of favourites but was taken off youtube. I wrote about it to my yahoo group dead_heads. Anyone else there saw it???????????
run it backwards from 5:06 -- back to 5:01, Jerry clearly says "I am the walrus" ( -;

Now is whenever you are. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

" Tomorrow never happens, It's all the same fucking day, man. " ~ Janis Joplin I thought she said " as we discovered on the Terrain" but I've read in several place "on the train" ???? PEACE
yes, it's the train. it's a reference to the train tour across canada, rider. u quacked me up!!! Great North Special, were you on board? You can't find a ride like that no more Night the chariot swung down low Ninety nine children had a chance to go One long party from front to end Tune to the whistle going round the bend No big hurry, what do you say Might as well travel the elegant way oh well , might as well peace2U
"Don't worry about tomorrow, Lord, you'll know it when it comes When the rocking, rolling music meets the rising, shining sun" - Weir "All the things I planned to do, I only did half way Tomorrow will be Sunday, born of rainy Saturday There's some satisfaction in the San Francisco rain No matter what comes down, the mission always looks the same" --Hunter/Garcia
that play on Mission and mission. (for non-Bay Areans, the Mission is a nabe in SF, and I guess Hunter was walking there one rainy day and the rest is history.)
keeps the flyin' monkeys down....that way they don't steal yer beer
on a visit to your city(across the bay)on a rainy day, thinkin bout what hunter was thinkin and gettin a feel for where jerry got the feelin... Ten years ago I walked this street, my dreams were riding tall Tonight I would be thankful Lord, for any dreams at all Some folks would be happy just to have one dream come true But everything you gather is just more that you can lose flying monkeys in washington, damn invisible floresent orange snakes in arizona, wheres my attorney, it's getting weird again! time to turn pro
