I love what I love and I want it that way

Playing in the band:Book

#132863 2 years, 6 months ago
I just gone done reading this book and it was so good. It was my eighteenth gd book I've read and it is in my top three. I love the chapter about writing lyrics. Just fascinating. In my top three is searching for the sound, what long strange trip and playing in the band. So if you read gd books and you haven't read it, you need to.

I'm know reading Bill Graham presents. I didn't know bill had such a hard life as a child.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

I remember reading that book back in the mid 80s when I was just getting back into the Dead. IMO it might be the single best work for putting the whole experience into some kind of basic context.

I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Yup. Nazis are human garbage and an insult to creation.
