What would our beloved Jerry Garcia say?

#4688 3 years ago
Now that Furthur has gelled somewhat into its own, what do you think J.Garcia would say about the way they carry the torch and the institution that was the Grateful Dead?

With nothing left to do.
A lovely view of heaven,
But I'd rather be with you - be with you!

I think he already said it:

"Well, if I work as hard as I can in my life, I may be able to end up building this thing that nobody can tear down after I'm dead"
If it rolls, sink it.

I think he would love it! To me he always seemed modest about their success, so I think for him to see the new generation would really make him smile I often think about what Pigpen would think. He left us so early that I can't imagine what he'd think to see that 40 years later this music and community is thriving!

I think he'd love that the Spirit is alive.

kinda tough since Furthur wouldn't exist if Jerry were around to comment. I know he was adamant about people doing their own thing and was down on the cover bands in general but I'm sure he'd be happy his brothers Phil and Bob were still following their heart and chasing the muse...

Good call, Canyon...

He'd be too busy answering questions about the Grateful Dead tour he was currently on.

He would be thrilled that the music he loved is still alive and kicking. : )

don't make no difference to me.

Never saw this quote before. A great quote by Jerry.
