When the goin gets weird the weird turn pro

.Grateful Dead 10-30-80 RCMH NYC .

#319681 3 months, 3 weeks ago



What a show this is. With Billy Cobham on drums for a few songs. One of the greatest drummers just jammin out. Check out Drumz!!!!!!!! I met Billy Cobham once and asked him what it was like to play with the Dead and Bob solo. He smiled an extremely large toothy grin and said \"Mind Numbing\'\'. One of the fondest memories he will have for ever

This is a fabulous show, a real classic! I love all the acoustic, and the Sailor>Saint is a great set closer. I also agree with you about how great Billy is; he actually played our drum set at a workshop and autographed the bass drum head when our buddy bought the set afterwards. I sure would have loved to have been at this whole RCMH run in person!!

Sue, I caught Bobby and the Midnites with him in 84 for a couple of shows. Always Loved BC on drums. One of my all time favorites. And to just walk on stage for this show is a tip of the hat by the band to a true musical genious. WHat a powerful drumz/Other one. Wow. Explosive

Also, look at the fun Kreutzman is having. I miss Billy tons.

RCMH & The Warfield would make great box sets for Dead.net to release. They would rival Europe 72 Complete. I believe, however, that they do not have most of the tapes. Bummer. Serious bummer.

What a great video! It sure would be nice to have that on dvd with a greater quality of sound and video. The opening of a show especially with shakedown always sends chills down my back. I wish we could get in the Grateful Dead Time Machine and enjoy that one live. Thanks NY
