    Ha! Who’d a thought it’d be the 1993 show instead of the 73 elective?! I thought for sure til I saw the set list it happened in Ashland. Well now we know why! What a gem of a show on paper; I know it was a paper airplane to you all who saw it.
  4. Happy Valentines! My love of DSO, where I really got on the bus to stay, began 6 years ago tonight. I was at the Charlotte show and lightning struck me at the core close to the first of the second set. I kid not when I say there was an earthquake in Edgefield County, SC , where my 4th great grandfather settled in 1801, that night around 10:23 or so after leaving Surrey County Virginia where my 6th great grandfather- 8 generations ago- was born 9 milea from Jamestown in 1667. Sign comes in powerful ways and I’m glad I paid attention because my life has been enriched deeply since then to say the least. Have a beautiful day and ❤️ to you all!

  8. From DSO FB page FAMILY INSTRUMENT ALERT #2: Phil Lesh’s historic bass ‘Mission Control’ joins us on stage at House of Blues San Diego Feb 21 & The Wiltern in LA on Feb 22! The story behind one of the most technically decorated and carefully crafted bass instruments in music history is one of true Grateful Dead lore. As one of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s most iconic instruments, ‘Mission Control’ was built at Alembic by luthier Rick Turner in 1973 not just for, but as part of, The Wall of Sound. Featured in The Grateful Dead Movie, this instrument was on stage with the Grateful Dead from 1974 until 1979. Shortly after Phil stopped playing her in 1980, she was gutted of her pickups and lost for 40 years, she has been found and restored and is ready to be heard again. After being out of public view for nearly four decades, the bass landed in the hands of Jason Scheuner, Deadhead and Artist Liason for Telefunken. “We are thrilled to be the new custodian of the most significant bass guitar in Rock n Roll History! The Rick Turner/Alembic/Phil Lesh “Mission Control” bass, aka “Osage Orange”, aka “The Omega”. It was important to us that it go to a Deadhead, it has and now can be shared with the world. Dark Star Orchestra was the obvious choice to debut the stage return of this historic instrument, and will be played by DSO's very own Skip Vangelas.” To complete the final steps of the restoration to get the instrument back to create its quality, stage-ready sound, Scheuner continues, “Rick Turner will be flying down to San Diego to complete the final step of the restoration before the first show. The neck and bridge pickups removed some 40 years ago have now been found and recovered (from Fred Hammon of Dark Star Pickups) and will be installed to complete the restoration of this historic instrument.” The instrument’s creator Rick Turner states "The return of the prodigal bass! ‘Mission Control’ is likely the ultimate four string electric bass as a combination of lutherie and electronics. She disappeared decades ago having been frightfully abused, but she lives again! I'm so happy to have been the luthier who built her and to be participating in the restoration to stage ready."

    Spectacular! Acoustic guitar is such a beautiful thing. Does anyone here know the type guitar Eaton and Mattson play? I heard a rendition of Dark Star a Spanish guitar player had recorded through Golden Road Radio hour. It was AMAZING!! I tried to find him but to no avail.

  15. The guy in a full ER? He’d broken his leg badly and was waiting to see a doctor. The doctor came in and was going to give him something for pain and wait for it to take effect, which meant more waiting. The fella said, Listen Doc. Go ahead and set it. I have already experienced the most unbearable pain, TWICE! The doctor concerned but interested ask how it came about. The fella said well, the first time was when I was camping and accidentally sat on a bear trap. And the second?? Right after that.... when he ran out of chain.
