We have a different outlook.. That's ok... That's what makes this great.. Curiosly ... This is a random question.. Do you know were when and why the term " dead head" was coined? To grateful dead fans... It will give credence to your how many shows argument..
I am curios though..... On your ideal shakedown (shakedown steve) is NOTHING FOR SALE.
I've seen that shakedown steve and even the grateful dead fans are disappointed !
The term first appeared in print at the suggestion of Hank Harrison (father of Courtney Love) on the sleeve of Skull And Roses. It read "DEAD FREAKS UNITE: Who are you? Where are you? How are you? Send us your name and address and we'll keep you informed. Dead Heads, P.O. Box 1065, San Rafael, California 94901."
When have I stated there's anything wrong with selling stuff on Shakedown? All I said was not everyone who goes on tour sells shit in the lot. I love Shakedown and I love buying souvenirs at shows.
