for the OH's (original heads)

#18461 3 years, 6 months ago
what goes through your head when you see a teenager at a Furthur show? So many people have asked me why i was there haha and how it was possible to get into the dead without jerry around. I simply reply "the music"

It makes me happy. The music is timeless. It has meaning across generations. Love to see new fans discover what I've loved so much.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Who you are, and what you do,

I'm just glad there are new people that like the music. I have been asked by 20-somethings "Wow.....you saw Jerry? Cool."
Thanks Charlie Miller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's refreshing to see the young'uns enjoying good music. I say to myself, that teenager has taste AND class! Also, it's so easy to get into Dead music with the treasure trove that is the Archive...

Long live Grateful Dead Music!!
Those who hear not the music. . . think the dancers mad.

I've gotten that reaction too. It's a good feeling. Glad the music will be around for a long while.

I never got to see Jerry, Brent, Pigpen. But what I love to see is 4 generations all enjoying and connected. That is a sight to see.
Can't talk to you without talkin' to me. Were guilty of the same ol' things.

i just hope yins encourage them, and try to show them the light. I was lucky. my Dad's a head, so I just kinda had to follow his example and found my way relatively easy. I wish more of my generation was into the Dead. I really do. This rap and metal crap cannot be good for kids. They've done studies that show kids that listen to music are more depressed than kids that don't. I have to imagine thats because of the TYPE of music kids listen to these days. I work with kid's for a living, and my one client is 11 going on 12. Every chance I get I make sure to play some Dead music when we are playing games and what not. Just to get him interested and hope that when the time comes, he becomes one of us.

I met some really cool "kids" on my little Spring tour, and was totally encouraged. Many many of them could be my kids, and man, they get it! in my opinion. The vast majority are there for the music, not so much as the party, which is super refreshing to see. The lot scenes are so much smaller now, the whole "tail-gate" vibe seems to have dissipated (I didn't see any nitrous at the three shows I went to), and folks seem to be coming out for the community and for the music. What else is there?

That said, when the girl I was talking to began to cry cuz she never got to see Jerry....... I didn't wanna break the mystique.
If unable to dance, I'll crawl.

I love seeing the younger people at the shows - it keeps the scene alive and fun.
It's part of the natural progression of Dead music and rock music in general - the songs will get handed down from generation to generation like folk or classical music.
