Wow. I was gonna post something very similar to this! So instead I'll post......

When, after a long jam in which everyone goes WAY FAR OUT into their own trip, they bring they everyone back to the exact same place, everyone cheers, and you feel the "group mind" in action.

in 42 years seeing hundreds of shows, STILL can hardly wait for the next one

seeing parents bring their kids and the kids become converts....when was the last time you dug YOUR parents music?

Lesh

Weir

Jerry

Brent

Pigpen

Sunshine Becker Garcia

Jeff Chimenti

seeing Furthur four times over a few months the only repeat was "The End" which is the most iconic profound song ever written

where else can you stand and dance for four hours without feeling fatigue

meeting friends from age 15 to 75

listening to Furthur soundboard Cds in the car which were available minutes after the show

Lesh

Garcia

Weir

the drummers including Russo

DSO


strangers meeting strangers

if we can't dance we will crawl

THE MUSIC MAKES US HIGH!

Lesh is over 70 and looks 50

the guest stars ala costello, haynes, clarence, brandon marsalis, susan vega, jackie green

the orgasm at the end of morning dew

china cat

sugar magnolia

the music plays the band

bringing my 23 year old Lithuanian husband and he became a convert

seeing them in 1969 at the Fillmore when tix were 3.50 4.50 and 6.50

dylan and the dead

good drugs

and most of all THE COMMUNITY!!!
come and join the party every day!

I love the entire trip from beginning to end...but my fav is when you leave the show and the music is still playing in your head...its like you couldn't stop it even if you wanted to. All you can think about is what songs you got that night and what they are going to play tomorrow

some of the very reason that guy said are to hate the Grateful Dead for are actually reason to love them.....

such as drums/space. (there was something about a 20 minute drums on his list). There were people that didn't care for it but I imagine those people wern't into tripping....
