Does that mean I can't use it anymore?

I love it as long as they're truly down and respectful. I was 25 (so maybe not an "OH" but got my cred) when Jer died and hopped on the Phish bus for a long time, watching them go from college bars to Toronto clubs to where they are now. My bud and I were chillin in the lot one summer and some little wasted doofus comes up out of nowhere and asks how old we were. I told him 28 and he says, "man you guys are a little old to be doing this aren't you". You don't see him much on tour anymore ;}

I love the music!!!! I feel it in my body when a song comes on. The Music speaks to my soul...sounds stupid and corny but it is the way I feel. A Furthur show is like church for me

A couple things--- I don't think there is an OH on this site. An OH to me is someone who was seeing shows in 66-67-68-69....you are certainly not an OG if you never saw Pigpen. I forget the exact quote but Jerry said something to the effect that the good ole Grateful Dead died with Pig. I saw my first show at 16 in 1981. I would call myself and other of this period second generation heads. At my second show I got accidently puddled HUGE and the kyndest of the elders around me and the immense time I had after coming back to reality a lil in set 2 is (besides the music obviously) one of the things that got me on the bus for good. I love seeing younger folks at shows really diggin the music. The only thing I don't like is when the younger folks don't respect their elders or the enviremont or get what its all about. I don't blame them.. I blame US the older folks for not teaching what was taught to me.. and yes sometimes the " I am 19 I know it all " younger folks don't wanna listen. There was a time in the early 80's where believe it or not I don't think there was a fan at a show that wouldn't give you the shirt off his back if you asked. We were all "on the ride" together. I honestly miss those times. That said I am supremely grateful the bus hasn't stopped and younger folks are diggin it. Keep on truckin FURTHUR>

my buddies father who went to his first show in 69 is on here. good man too.
but good point crazy to think that 66 is now 45 years ago. i can only look back with jealousy and wish i could have enjoyed the ride. 2008 was too late to get there.
