  1. Yea, I noticed that they would lock on to one star and go into great depth, detail. I understand the Carter Family story and their contributions, I get it. Then they went all in with Jimmie Rodgers. It gave me the impression that he was the only person singing country music when he had his moment in the sun. I’m sure that’s not true. I’m not so sure that a fair picture is being painted. Something has to be left out to go into such detail with certain stars.
  2. I thoroughly enjoyed that documentary. I love how it can be brought all the way back to it’s conception. Reminds me of the Grateful Dead and the acid tests, etc. it also flashed me back to something I had seen or read about the Harry Smith anthology of American Folk music. (?) it seems that Jerry and the boys tapped into this in their beginnings. I also read, in Reader’s Digest of all places, that When Jerry was little, his grandmother was into bluegrass and always had the radio playing Bill Monroe. Totally way cool.
  3. I saw it. Great documentary, I learned a lot. At one point, someone was talking and the background music was the lyrics, ‘I ‘d rather drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow log.... I always thought those lyrics were part of early versions of I know you Ryder. Apparently, it’s an entirely different song. Anybody?
  4. I’m not so sure that Lisa has been with them since the beginning. While I don’t do a lot of shows, I didn’t see her on stage at all for my first couple of shows/years. In the lot, before a show, my nephew mentioned that they have a girl that sings the Donna parts/songs. Well, that night at the Electric factory, she left her mark. Wow! Sunrise! I can’t forget it. I’ve been looking forward to her songs ever since.
  5. Their tour manager passed away about two years ago.
  6. 39 years ago today, I had it done to me by the Grateful Dead for the first time. About four days before, a girl friend of mine and I were walking across the parking lot at the Mann music center in Philly to meet up with about a dozen friends at a James Taylor concert. Two guys were arguing in the parking lot. ‘Thirty’. ‘No, thirty five’. I walked up to them and asked what they were arguing about. ‘ two tickets for the Grateful Dead Saturday night’. I immediately pulled out my wallet and said ‘I ‘ll give you thirty five.’ My first show is pretty much a blur, remembering only that it was like nothing else I had ever experienced. We sat, mesmerized, watching the people as much as the band. Smiling the whole time. Seven weeks later, I ‘m getting snuck into Radio City, catching an acoustic 15th anniversary show. Two shows later, I’m going to a show by myself, without a ticket. No problem. Thirty nine years later, I just caught a Dark Star Orchestra show down the beach while they were passing through. Life is good.
  7. No red rocks for me. My range is about a hundred miles from home, a couple hour drive. I have this theory. If you sit still, they will come to you. Granted, the tour bus has never been parked out front of my house but a couple hour drive gets me a half dozen shows a year, if I have the time and money to spare.
  8. Let me elaborate. I believe that the new Colorado marahooch laws state that it is illegal to smoke weed in public. If that’s the law, they can arrest you for it, if they so desire. That’s all.
  9. The more time I spend on this planet, the more the saying ‘live and let live’ makes sense to me. Exceptions to that are if someone is harming themselves or others. At that point, compassion and knowledge work wonders for positive growth. Life is an ongoing beautification process. The change, if needed, starts with the world within our reach. That, along with going back to the moon, mounting speakers facing the Earth, and blaring Grateful Dead music, nonstop, 24/7 would make this world such a better place. Let there be songs, to fill the air....
  10. I believe that it’s still no smoking in public.
  11. I have two different hawks, about six different deer, a bard owl, a couple of turkeys, one with eight little ones a couple of weeks ago, all showing up in my backyard on a regular basis at different times of the day, night, week, to hunt or just graze. I had two fawns bedded down a couple of weeks ago. The best I can figure, they’re coming to get a closer listen to the Grateful Dead music that I am playing in the house. It’s the only thing that makes any sense.
  12. A customer of mine texted me this morning to let me know that tickets for dark Star in DC are going on sale today. Feel the love!
  13. Anyone familiar with the Fillmore in Philly? They’ve played the Electric Factory forever. curious about the change, plus only one night.
