I've never heard that, do you have a source for that assertion? As I mentioned above, email wasn't even widely used in '94, though certainly there was a lot of parking lot criticism of Vince. But this is ringing a bit hollow, imho. Are you sure you're not just feeling like an internet fight today, dopeywonder? I suggest listening to 7/1/94 instead of fighting more, it'll be healthier!

Dopeywonder. That is unfortunate. I would never send a death threat to anyone, little less to a fomer, or current Dead member. If that happened, then they are neither a head, or a humanitarian in general. I have no ill feelings towards you. Because I have never met you, + that is not how I conduct my life on a daily basis. Peace.

I guess i meant to say sue, vince was harassed til the day he took his life. Apparently somehow these so called heads got his personal email and besides that its also a majority of people that talk shit on vince and his vocals. Another reason im ashamed of our thing we have in common, the dead. Unfortunately a man died and the people that cheered him on to do it prolly dont miss a wink of sleep cuz all they did was use words and words could never drive someone to slit their throat could they? I guess if his blood was on my hands i would tell myself that too. If u didnt bad mouth him this isnt meant for u but seeing how my positive start to this thread was overwhelmingly attacked there is good chance some people in this room drove him to the grave.

Hey dopey- beauty is in the eyes and ears of the viewer/listener. Love 94 all you want. Have at it. Just because the vast majority of deadheads think 94 is weak it is also their opinion and they are just as entitled to theirs as yours. As far as Vince--where to start. He was turned away from Alpine because he was unstable....he tried to kill himself by o'd' ing intentionally on the Ratdog tour bus. The band and members wanted nothing to do with him at that point. The fans didn't chase him away. As far as emails to him, if your a grown adult and let someone you don't even know bother you enough to commit suicide you got serious issues in the first place. As with all behaviour his actions caused the consequences. Trying to pin a suicide on "the fans" may be the most ludicrous thing I have ever read in the internet.

I understand your point of view. But, I would have approached it a little differently. I had no problems with Vince. He had a unique sound.But he was in a hard situation. Trying to replace Brent (a daunting task), while watching the empire crumble.

Ok my opinion on vince. On the plus side he encouraged and brought a lot of Beatles and pushed for other old classics to be played. I thought his voice was pretty good especially on high harmonies like Wharf Rat. His casio playing wasn't my cup of tea but had its moments. Filling Brents shoes was no easy task...and the fact they were peaking just as Brent died didn't help either. What I didn't like was Way to Go Home & Samba in the Rain. One of them was played nearly every show, many times killing the momentum. If Way to Go was played last night, you can pretty well damn bet Samba was gonna be played tonight. They both would have been much better served in Set 1.

attention haters, it was sites like this that vince was attacked on. Google it yourself. He would reply and always sign it love, vince. If that doesnt break your heart i dont know what to tell ya.
