You're not alone DM, I still can't believe I never saw Jerry solo. An unbelievably dumb move!!

But I did get to carry one of Michael Jackson's costumes all over Santa Monica (a dear friend does all the big concert special effects and it was part of an illusion) and then got to see the Jackson's '84 Victory Tour from the 10th row center. My proudest moment, top that one!!



You're right - that is a hard one to top! My wife would be envious!!

Too young to ever see the dead with Jerry. Stopped counting at the 7th furthur show.
At my 7th furthur show i was getting pissed that these two drunk elderly gentleman were actually arguing over who had seen more gd shows during the middle of the show (both were apparently somewhere between 100-150) so i ran to the porta pottie hoping they'd be done by the time i got back.
well, the back of the porta pottie door told me to stop worrying about statistics and drunk old men and instead to concentrate on just enjoying things each time i get to be there. ended up being one of the best nights of my life.
moral of the story: fuck statistics and porta potties are smarter than drunks

too tough to recall the old days, a safe estimate I saw 75-80% of all Garcia shows from 87-95, full GD and JGB tours 88, 89,90(until Brent died) a lot but not all 91-94 a few in 95. I also saw maybe 20-30 shows with my parents in the early 70's but I dont really count those cuz I was just a baby and not there on my own...

Phil and Friends 50
Furthur 12
Ratdog 4
Rhythm Devils 1
Dead/Too 15

my real passion these days is the David Nelson Band I've seen 90% of their shows that were not played in Hawaii the last 10 years, cuz Once YouGet A Little You'll Never Get Enough!!!
