    Only got to see them once, but have seen Dark Star Orchestra several times, they recreate entire shows, song by song.

    GD is great, you can film, you can record, you can make t-shirts and sell them, etc. They don't care. You can see 5 concerts in a row and never hear the same song twice...and no lip synching.

    Great stuff.

    My favorite rendition, a duet, of My Favorite JT song.

    James Taylor/Joni Mitchell - You Can Close Your Eyes - 1971 - Live John Peel Session - London




    I believe an Actual Concert Pic. 44 yrs ago!



    BTW, The Dead Chicago concert is July 4th Weekend.

    saw some videos on youtube, and he sounds great. GF took me to see Bob Dylan for my birthday, and the show was amazing. James Taylor is close to her favorite, so i wanted to pay her back for a wonderful birthday gift. Mom really likes him, too, so we thought that it would be a great Mother's Day gift.

    Their shows lasted for hours and hours. I knew a lot of guys that worked with them, and I met Mickey Hart several times. The were in Brooklyn many years ago and it was two in the morning and all the guys were talking the show down. Garcia had his favorite White Russian with him, with all the booze and just a little cream on top: he suddenly went over like a tree and that's how everyone found out he was diabetic.

    My cousin used to travel for months to shows in the 80's, I have a friend that used to watch them when they first started and got to know lots of the band members before they got big. It is good music, they take care of their fans, and they aren't ripping people off.

    Yeah, that's why they've lasted so long. Their music is gentle and fun to listen to. Garcia said that they owed their success to their placement at the Monterey Pop Festival of '67: right after The Who and just before Jimmie Hendrix, who was recommended to the festival by Paul McCartney. Hendrix had been in London where he was a huge hit and The Beatles loved him. So, Garcia said that everybody noticed The Dead as a result.

    What a long strange trip it's been.

    $500.00-2,400.00 for tickets seems fan friendly.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
