I read uhh "A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead" which was interesting and great, but as said it's like 1/3rd of a definitive work.

But it does shed more light on "Jerry Garcia as a broken human being" and how dysfunctional the band was administratively.

This is a fun read.

The Garcia biography is really interesting but it's more about him than the band.

I was reading the Rolling Stone article about Pigpen's death and in it they talked about a tape they found at his apartment, featuring a bunch of songs he recorded solo before his death. Does anyone know if this tape ever became available to the public and if so where I could listen to it?

It's a super common bootleg and not that good.

You're right, I probably should have looked a bit harder because I found it.

I really wish Dead and Co fix the bass mixing (or Oteil fixes his tone). I don't want or expect Oteil to be Phil but I'd love to actually HEAR what Oteil does at the shows.

How are you guys forgetting that 88-90 with Brent is one of the best years of the Dead! One of my personal fav eras. Check out "So Glad You Could Make It: Spring 1990"

Edit: Someone above has me beat, those are choice late 80s cuts!

I'll admit to being less than thrilled when the Dark Star bassline starts up during a show. I'll take an exploratory Playing in the Band over Dark Star any day of the week.

lock this poster up for the good of society and subject them to donnas cauterwailing for eternity!

I hope Johnny Checkers brings the Dumble on this tour so I can point at it and go "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT THING COSTS" to people again
