Are all Deadheads "good people?"

#78245 2 years, 9 months ago
I just read 23atwell's 7 Walkers review and something he wrote got me thinking:

Can I just say, people (deadheads) at any dead related are the best people in the world to be with. Not only is everybody so nice but great looking.

I hear this a lot, about how we're all such great people. Generally speaking Deadheads are a nicer/cooler bunch of people than the rest of society. There are people on this board I know I would have a great time hanging out with. But there are also people on this board I would never want to hang out with. When I look back on the people I went on Dead tour with I wonder why I was ever friends with some of them. And these were people I knew personally for years, not just people I went to a couple shows with. Deadheads have personality differences just like everyone else. It's naive to think you're automatically going to get along with someone just because they like the Grateful Dead.

Yes Steve every deadhead is a genuinely nice person that would give you the shirt off their back. Also, that shirt that they give you will always be a tie dye

Not everyone who likes the Grateful Dead is a deadhead. And like every other group, there are plenty of kind Deadheads and other Deadheads who are not kind. Plenty of people giving away miracle tickets but also some scammers in the group too.

Most people are looking for a good time and are willing to go with the flow. Other fans get in your face for sitting in their seats, etc.

Overall, I do give deadheads more of the benefit of the doubt that they are good people. And in my experience most deadheads are good people.

I concur and see that was the term used. I edited my OP

well a lot of people might not be able to get along on tour together cause of personality differences but at the same time they could be nice people, just not people you want to tour with.

I'd say the majority of Deadheads are nice people but I'm sure theres ones who arn't ....... I know theres a lot of people who don't care about the scene and go for drugs and to vend in the lot but I wouldn't consider any of them Heads. The percentage of people who really care about the music and arn't nice people is probably pretty small but I'm sure there still out there....
