Garcia with the Grateful Dead - just plain bad music. You would have to be stoned to like that shit. ENDLESS solos. Meandering, repetitive, clueless, where-did-my-musicianship-go....
Did you ever
see experience a live performace at a GD show?... Were you able to get into the "Phill Zone" with the llight show, walking around watching all the beautiful girls dancing?... and the there is the "spinner" crowd in the hallways... I, mean these spinner people didn't do drugs, the pretty much would spin on there toes the entire show (not for me, but it's one of those life's experiences, ya know?).. like I said,: "guess ya had to be there"
I wasn't one of those deadheads that just crumbled after Jerry died and over-dosed on heroin cause I couldn't live without the economy of that culture...
I, mean I went into that experience fresh out of a JW family. My take on it was way different than most of the people I met on "Tour"... but none the less they were all nice people(the ones I met and camped with, and caravaned with...(imagine that.. "hippies" caravaning, so if someone broke down, there were others there to assist, or at least make sure everybody made it to the next show)
None the less maybe if I never had that experience, I may have had a less ecclectic music collection... I mean, I can enjoy putting, Willy Nelson, Snoop Dogg, John Denver, Marylin Manson, and whatever else you might have layin' around, Hit Random and be set
