1981 and my next experience begins
to every Dead show in this venue
missing the Warlocks Shows
i had no ticket and never got in
only time i went to a show and got shut out)
sound here was great-always had fun
the first East Coast Help-Slipknot
years-broke up with and re found the woman
is still my wife-
roll kegs and do bongs by the pool at
one show early second set because I had
liquid in me and the walls wew breathing to hard
in the corridor they kept constricing on me
a well dressed business man asking me at the
desk one year "what the heck was going on"
playing close by.
and said he used to be a DeadHead
when PigPen died
couldn't listen any more-it wasn't the same
then-but understood years later
Brent Mydland died
i had seen him blossom so much with
Dead-in the end writng so much on
albums In the Dark & Go to Heaven
Brent never seemed to be appreciated
he was gone and replaced by Vince Welnick.
fully appreciated PigPen either until
and played with T.C.-Tom Constanten
he told me how hard it was to play with the Dead
live up to the Pigpen legend.
is the kind of guy who you can talk too
get good info from-he lives near me now.
role of the Grateful Dead keyboardist seemed to
perplexing thing. Same with Keith Godchaux.
fully appreciated until gone.
i spent most of the 80's going to Dead
all over the country-Greek Theatre-the Rocks
in Md.-Atlanta-saw the Dead
40th bday at Manor Downs-Austin,Tx.
track-fireworks during the drums
coming down-serious Texas hospitality
City Zoo Amp the next day-100 degrees
small crowd-stood right in front
no problem-bikers who danced on a coffin next
the S.W. tour again in '85
my soon to be wife
loved Red Rocks-Kansas City Starlight
to go back this was again in '86
the Greeks that yr. but
had his first lapse into serious sickness
tour was canceled-
have my unused ticket for the Rocks)
sky was yellow &
sun was blue"

grateful dead story
