Negative aspects about the GD for me.

1. I never saw the real Grateful Dead
2. Drums and Space/ Love it love but not in the car.
3. Distracts me from doing lots of things lol.

Yes they make further sound like a cheap imitation. The fact that people think this is what the real G?D were about further is so far from the real thing not even close ..

That's about it. And really, it's not completely gone, so not too negative.

Nobody ever said that Furthur is the Grateful Dead. Furthur is definitely better and more consistent than most anything the GD did in 93-95. I really think that the GD gave me an appreciation for bluegrass, roots music, and Furthur! I don't see a negative influence there, but to each his own.

after 40 years all you can compare them to is 93 to 95 ?I have been a part of this experiment since 73 and I have seen hundreds of shows and compared to the G/D they sound like imitation cheese Velveeta all the way

Exactly I always get that blank look from close friends when I tell them about an upcoming show. There are just not enough words to describe to them the appeal of seeing more shows.

Have you gone to any Furthur shows or have you just heard their recordings?

What do you want, a medal? Don't you understand that Furthur is not the Grateful Dead. That band never claimed to be and not one person I have met believes it either. What purpose to you have in raising this moot point? Jerry is dead. We all miss him. Get on with it or get the fuck off the bus.

I think Dr. Martin has a PhD in closedmindedness. Excuse my presumptions, but that is a pretty shitty first post here
