When I hear the band I generally hear beautiful music and my body feels the need to groove. But it wasn't always that way. I did not "get it" my first few shows (I thought the people were freaks and the music ok, but not great).
I got hooked after a few shows and after hearing a few albums and cassettes. I was lucky in the sense that my first few shows in the early '80's were real good, and there were a few covers that I know (Satisfaction, some Beatles, etc). Plus in college many of my friends were deadheads.
I was wondering if you guys and gals share the same experience(s) where either you didn't get it at first or perhaps you have friends and family who don't get it and consider it noise? I would think that was more the norm.
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
