I suspect that there are many "Tennessee Jeds" here.
quote:
"Tennessee Jed": Before you met your wife, there was this girl named Brianna. Man, you still think about her sometimes. The weird thing is, she wasn't really your type. While you were paddling Vanderbilt freshmen over at the Sigma Chi house, she was hot-boxing in a VW bus with her vegan friend Judy. You hated all that drug stuff, but you were fond of Brianna's liberated approach in the boudoir (actually the back of the VW). Brianna dragged you to a few Dead shows, but you never thought Jerry had anything on Gregg Allman. To get through the experience, you'd double down on the Southern Comfort in the parking lot, then say a small prayer that the set list didn't include "Space."


I'm no "Cosmic Charlie", but I was there for the Great "Cosmic Charlie" Fakeout of '94.

There's no generalizing a "Crazy Fingers"...there can be only one!

"Dark Star" seems to fit me the best, but I did graduate high school and haven't ridden a bike in twenty years.

I've also never done time.

I am a fan that does not listen to them after 1972. Like ABB I only listen to the original band. To me it was the original band that made them what tey are not the versions that perforem today.

Pretty much true for me, too. Although I have kept up with the ABB throught the years, the orginal band was IMHO was the best and certainly was the band the ABB reputation was made on. As for the Dead, I preferred the more "country orientated" Dead of the late sixities/early seventies. Btw, you might want to add Little Feat to this list (Lowell George era vs later versions).

Little Feat with Craig Fuller was so very close to Feats with Lowell.

Since Craig left, Feat don't move me.

I'm a "Dead Set" fan. That's when I started listening to them and their shows. China - Rider too!

Met a guy last night at a party that saw the band when "Reckoning" was recorded.

Lots of good times back then but no desire to see them play anymore.

I don't think anything can top the original ABB, Grateful dead, MTB, or Little Feat. I've tried, but can't enjoy the new versions.

My favorite time is when Jerry played Gibsons and Pigpen was around.

so i love a the eleven>saint stephen>dark star>other one kind of vibe. followed by lovelight...

but...do like terrapin and blues for allah.

and Touch of grey was a fine exclamation point on the Jerry era.

Phil's bands are my current favorite because the emphasis is on the improvisation, did enjoy the Dead in DC a few weeks back.

I was a late blooming Deadhead and would say I'm an 'Eyes Of The World' kind of Deadhead.

hughduty,

You had to be living and growing up in that late sities/early-mid seventies era to understand that whole vibe. The Dead (along with the ABB, Little Feat, MTB, and the Band) were reallly hit their peak back then. Not to say that all of them didn't have some good moments later on, but back then it seem that all their moments were great. It really was a different time, and one that we'll never see again. I, for one, am glad I was around to experience it. It really did seem that music mattered so much more back then.

Maybe a St. Steven. Not that I'm a saint but their Music is like a religious experience for me and attending a show was like going to church or in my case the synagogue. Fabby what shows did you attend? I made the MSG and the first Izod show and loved them.
