Re: for the OH's (original heads)

I love the new kids who get it and are there for the music. It makes me really happy and I think they are why I spend time on this forum. I learned from older brothers and sisters whom I loved, and I think the new kids deserve the same kind of love and encouragement.

i started at 14 so it only seems natural to me .i just wish that somewould realize that the 60's are gone and alot of bad shit happened then. it wasnt all peace and love and they need to take care of themselves or get screwed over ,were not all family, just fans of a band

Welcome all. If you love the music, the more the merrier! I love that the Grateful Dead's music continues to entertain! Long may you run!

I love the young-uns coming to the shows and think it is the job of anyone who has been around for any length of time to nudge them in the "right" direction. I put that it quotes because let's face it, is there really a "right" direction? I think you all know what I mean. It's also important because if we want this music to grow to grace the world stage of immortality such as Mozart, Beethoven, The Beatles. or Rolling Stones, we have a ways to go. While Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead have become household names in our country and certainly some pockets of Europe, it is a long way from being a global force. Then again maybe it's best kept to ourselves. I don't know, I just would love (hopefully many years down the road) as my life candle flickers to its final flame that I will be able to smiile and contemplate people 200 years from now still getting down to an over the top Shakedown Street, China>Rider, or any of the beautiful songs we love. Just my thoughts.....Newbie, Schnewbie....just get on the bus!

I like the young folks and the energy they bring. We were the young ones in the early eighties, now they are. They just the same as we were then. I try to party it up with them as much as possible.

i am a younger kid hence 92.. never got to see jerry but was introduced to his music at 13 and it was off from there around 17 i started to get into live music because it was whats happening and in the moment but would always go back to my grateful dead or jerry music. I was trying to see DSO really bad but could never get close enough (this led to learning of John Kadlecik yet another one of my now classic artists that i always turn on) this was because it was the closest i could get to my blessed Grateful Dead music right? Wrong!! Furthur!!! What BOB PHIL AND JOHN YOUR SHITING ME now i get to every furthur show i can and have met coutless people who have seen Jerry bunches of times and i think its great to get to meet someone who has been in that spot compared to mine of course. Some of the people i have met at shows are really cool, others not so much. I am a kid and i try my best not to piss off older people at shows out of respect but from what ive seen us kids suck haha. All the kids I saw at broomsfield were i think im a hippy with my wire wrap and Dead shirt I was Pissed should of gave your ticket to someone who likes the music man is all i think.
Play Dead/Furhur/JGB/JKB ah How Sweet it is

I think that getting into the band when Jerry's not around because of the music is the only way you can get into the band, as it was in the old times. I mean that's why he made the music, to form some sort of connection with others to try and figure out what the hell is going on in this thing called life! If you get into Furthur for drugs, the money to be made souvenirs, or just to say you saw them before they kicked the bucket or any other weird reason that would make you a bum and me grumpy....
