Not all of us are as informed as you. I was pleased to hear these stories told by people that I respect and admire.
You can't always get what you want... Unmet expectations can lead to disappointment... I choose to be grateful that I have the opportunity to witness these magical events without expectations. It's all brand new! Enjoy!


Informed?pick up a fucking book dude

even if stuff is in print somewhere I have no problem with Bob/Steve and whoever else may be there tell it in their own way from their perspective... Steve talks to much sometimes but still I see the conversations as far more then just 'getting fucked up' talk.... the Q&A session is classic and I don't think Steve is leaving or gonna be left out anytime soon

Dude, there's no need to be rude. These events encourage me to "pick up a fucking book because I recall reading about some of these stories (probably before you were born). Apparently you have read some of this more recently. Some of us may have forgotten some stories as life's experiences take precedence in our memories. If I had better typing skills I would have transcribed a page from "Playing in the Band" where Grateful Dead as religion was discussed. As you grow, you will probably learn to be more diplomatic and open-minded as you acquire wisdom.

I miss watching this with you guys bigtime! Since the time change..longer days=longer hours...like 14 hour days. I'm always working Wednesdays so I get off work around 10 pm. I love summertime though. Snorkeling in water 85-90 degrees is the shit.

How much of their memeroies are the truth though?

I just rememeber Bobby saying Pigpen never got on a motorcycle when I've clearly seen a picture of Pigpen on one....

And I just want to add a comment about Steve and his stories, yea they do all seem to be about drug usage and such. But just look at the bands history....it was fueled by drugs! And the fans most of their show experiences are influenced by them too. Not all but you hear stories and everyone's talking about how high they were...it's all part of the community whether you take them or not.
Dreams are lies...it's the dreaming that's real!!!!

the key is to find consistencies in stories over multiple sources.

also, was pig riding the motorcycle or just sitting on one posing?

he can talk about whatever he wants. i am done justifying my end of it. i can simply choose not to watch it, win win for everybody involved.

"Not for 'Weir Here,' but for life." That's how I listen to the news. PBS plays news programs from Japan, Germany, France, India, South Korea, Israel, Russia, Qatar, Taiwan, and the US. I listen from another room, and I use the key to learn the approximate truth from multiple sources.

I personally love a tad of embellishment to old stories. Parish is not interested in being censored by the truth police Lewie and deservedly so. He has the scars to prove enough for me. Listen to the story telling of neil sometime. He can tell the same event 10 differnt ways. Same with owsley.
