My wife was the manager of a large department store, she made sure they had his ties. I haven't worn a tie in 15 years, no idea where they might be.

check out the 1971 album Hooteroll? for something different.

Basically Jerry playing sideman in a jazz-fusion-funky instrumental session led by Howard Wales. John Kahn plays bass and Bill Vitt drums...

I only got to see him once. I caught the Dylan and the Dead show at the old JFK Stadium at the Veteran's Sports Complex in Philadelphia.

There were 105,000 people at the show and it was 103 degrees on the field. The organizers were playing fire hoses with fog nozzles on them over the crowd to cool the place down, and the smoke was rising out of the horseshoe like a vast chimney.

The Dead played a set, they Dylan and the Dead played, then the Dead played a second set.

Really good show.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

I've always been amazed by Jerry's talent for improvisation on guitar.

"The Eleven" is a jam in 11/4 time. Not many bands do that sort of thing these days. Wink

Another all time favorite of mine is "Wharf Rat".

After Grateful Dead, Garcia was part of a bluegrass group called Old and In the Way, with such notables as Garcia (banjo), David Grisman (mandolin), and Vassar Clements (fiddle). I had the sheer pleasure of doing some impromptu picking with this group in the parking lot of a bluegrass festival in NOVA, 1973. Parking lot pickup picking was a great feature of such festivals, early on. All the groups always encouraged lesser skilled pickers to join them.

The documentary on Amazon Prime, Long Strange Trip , is a good watch for GD and Garcia fans.

It got me back into listening to the Dead some. I was once a fan.

I like the Dead, but don't love them. I miss others more than Garcia.
