I don't hear much mention of them in threads.
I've spent the better part of my life listening to the Dead, most mornings begin with something bootlegged from the 70's or 80's. Today was Boston 1983.
It's been a good year of Ratdog, Phil and friends, DarkStar shows. Losing count but have seen many and even traveled to FL to see them last Fall. I think my first Dead show was 1977 in Philly. I was just a wee little Dead Head then.
Just a part of my everyday and now I get to pass the torch. My boy's been to a few shows and I think he gets it.
