40th HS reunion is this summer back on the tundra
Better go on a diet and hit the gym.
From the early seventies and decades ahead of their time. Was great to see them get inducted into the Rock and Roll HOF last month.
The '08's in all its god awful splendor.
It's been said that this was the greatest Dead show ever.
Every Dead show I saw was the greatest. They even made the old Orlando Arena sound like a recording studio. The Alligator Alley show was pretty dayumm good too. At the Tampa show, my wife at the time pounded to many ice beers and I had to take her out to the parking lot to keep an eye on her as she was passed out. They even sounded good outside the stadium, and to be truthfull, the show outside was better than the show inside.
It's def up there. That Fire On The Mountain is insane
Was there for the Alligator Alley show. Didn't see them again until the last time they played at Soldier Field. That was amazing. Best part was hiking through the legions of Dead Heads camping out in Grant Park on our way to the concert.
I saw them in Cal winter of 68, Pirate's World in S FLA in 70(with Lacuna) and every show in Atlanta and Vegas from 87 though Gerry's last shows in Vegas in 95. Plus some Further, The Dead, and Ratbag shows in ATL after that. He is still missed.
I've been a Deadhead since I heard their first album in Chuck's Record Bar at 8th and University in 67.
The Tampa show we went to was in 95. Who knew what was about to happen.
I sorta sensed that something was wrong with him in '95 Vegas--his singing was weaker than usual(and that is saying something) and his playing seemed to lack the usual fire. His death two months later was not a real surprise albeit a defining moment in the demise of an era. Long live Frisco and the "summer of love".
'95 tour the good shows were rare. That Tampa show was one of the worst, Jerry was going down hill fast.
