What is the definition of a deadhead????

#78278 2 years, 10 months ago
Is it simply....

A person who likes the music of the Grateful Dead and wishes to refer to themself as a Deadhead AND is dead in the head

Or is it something more?

Opinions only, no facts please

I think it's bullshit to say you have to be a certain age or seen Jerry or go to a certain number of shows or be a hippie blah blah blah. It's also bullshit to say you have to be a kindhearted person who would give someone the tie dye off your back. I've known people who were most definitely Deadheads who would screw you over and steal your tie dye. Sad, but true. They weren't good Deadheads, but they were still Heads. David Gans is the person who said you're a Deadhead if you like the Grateful Dead and you want to call yourself a Deadhead. I go by that.

I agree with you Steve. I don't think there is anything else to it other than that. "Custies", "Wooks", "Hippies" and humans included

"Custie" is a PhishHead term referring to concertgoers that have jobs and money and only do local shows instead of touring. It is short for "Customer".

You are a Deadhead when you say you are.

what about people that have jobs and money but still travel on tour as much as possible..... would they be considered a "custie"?
