Re: What got you into the Dead?

#9170 3 years ago
My dad and stepmom have been deadheads, but I lived with my mom for awhile. In 07, me and my friends started listening to Crosby Stills and Nash. From there, I got into the Dead, and the music just felt right.
Saw Phil Lesh and Friends at the Tweeter Center in October of 07.
Been on the bus ever since.

A couple friends from high-school talked me into driving to Hampton ( I had a car , they didn't) in March of 1988. They gave me a ticket to the first night, the 26th ( which HAPPENED to be my 17th birthday! ), went in, somebody " slipped " me something, and I aint been the same since. =)

When i was about 11 i heard "Workingmans Dead" for the 1st time...Easy Wind opened my eyes to the band in a big way...

When i was 14 I got my 1st copy of Cornell 77', at that point there was no turning back...

When I was 20, I saw my 1st Dead related show, 98' Furthur Fest at Shoreline...

Now I've seen Phil around 70 times (Furthur,P&F,TOO,The Dead,etc)

A lot of influence from friends. Over several years. I always liked the music, but it didn't really hook me, at first. Then some
friends took me to my first show. And that was it. I loved it. Been a big fan ever since. : )

My parent were deadheads, they took me to many shows with them in the early 70's. They pretty much stopped going after the hiatus (except for a few outdoor Bay Area shows). I started going again on my own in '87
