One of two songs I truly love from the band. The rest is, to my ears, limp dreck.

I love their musical philosophy onstage: improvisation unfolding a song in real time, with every performance unique. I just don't care for their particular results, mostly.

But yeah, "Ripple" kills me.

Estimated Prophet always reminds me of HouseOfCantor. Big Grin




This is the other song I really love from the band. Groovalicious, even in five, or seven.

I love the way they did what they did, I love the whole concept and the culture they created. I can't think of a band that ever developed a closer more mutually-nourishing bond with their fans. I'm a guitar player, singer, and songwriter myself and I can safely say I owe my whole songwriting "ethos" to The Dead more than any single other band. The idea of a song as an organic living thing really changed my whole outlook. Why play it the same way every time right? Fast one night, slow the next, etc. let good material grow and evolve over the years to truly get to know the "personality" of a piece of art. That said there's plenty about the "scene" and large chunks of the material I can do without. I wouldn't come anywhere near calling them my favorite band, and I think they were eventually surpassed in terms of musicianship and creative output by other acts. I'd rather listen to Phish, for example, though I have to give The Dead props for being the first to do it the way they did. There's nothing else quite like 'em. When I get that certain itch, nothing else will scratch it.

'Sup, Bosox? You the same Mr Boston from Guitar Forums?

Just watched the Netflix Original documentary on Bob Weir/Grateful Dead

The Other One

Some of the footage was amazing Smile

Most enjoyable.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: The Grateful Dead Thread
I've never been fortunate enough to see them while Jerry was alive. I got invited to see them at the L.A. Colosseum when I was around 13 but my parents wouldn't let me go. I have seen all forms of the Dead since; The Other Ones, Phil & Friends, Ratdog . When I was living in San Francisco I ran into Phil Lesh while waiting for the library to open. I got to talk with him for a few minutes which was cool. I also got to meet Vince Wellnick twice, once in San Diego and another time in San Francisco at the Haight st Fair. He remembered me from San Diego which blew me away since it had been a few years.

RE: The Grateful Dead Thread
Took this necroposting opportunity to change my vote from 2012 from "Indifferent" to "Like them."

A year or 2 ago I read the book, US Blues. Can't recommend it enough! It's a humorous murder solving adventure by Alligator, a deadhead of all deadheads. I was cracking up so much at the description of the Scene...made me wish I had gone to a show. Since then, I occasionally will pull up a show on the YouTubes when I'm in a super chill state of mind... Thumbsup

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load
