My professor got off topic the other day and started talking about bands he hates. When I asked him what he thought about the gang, he replied "Oh god! Let me just say I'm grateful someones dead"..... made my blood boil.

So it got me thinking, what the worst thing you've heard about the band? I bet there are some bad ones out there.

I can't even count how many times I have heard people say this...
Then I consider they are probably listening to American Beauty... and they are kind of right.
It's hard to get them to make the jump to live bootlegs after that though...

I only have a problem with people who try and change the music in my car or where I live...usually these people don't even listen to music and spend the whole time yelling, etc....I just don't get why they need to change it, when it's simply just background music for them.

I've been in many situations where music was being played that I couldn't stand, all night long....but I would never tell someone what to listen to at their fort.

For me it was always from the naysayers espousing, you have to be on drugs to like them, we were but............
As they were drinking their cheap beer and listening to Steve Miller studio CD'S over and over,,,,no offense Steve, you got a few good ones.

It always bothered me when big Green Day fans, or other similarly talentless hacks, would tell me the GD's music was anything negative... sorry, but Green Day epitomizes the death of musical creativity to me.
Or the rap gang that had to listen to the GD when chilling at my place... I mean, I listened to their stuff without complaint when in their cars, whatever...

I think the funniest thing I heard goes back the flea market in Englishtown NJ ( yes that Englishtown but in the 80's)..

An older guy in his 50's was seling all kinds of metal style bandana's, belt buckles, skulls and such. I mean it was all metal cliche's he was selling but no band names on anything. So the guy is trying to sell some leather tassle thingy to some older women who looked like they were shopping for their grandkids and picks up this leather and say's

" Yeah it hooks on to ya's belt like dis or hangs out of ya's pocket like dis. All the big rocks bands like the Grateful Dead are's wearin 'em. da kid's 'll go nuts for 'em "

I just sighed and walked away.

Deadheads are typically hypersensitive, so that doesn't surprise me.

Well here in Europe (I donn't count the UK) you will find not many people who have ever heard of the GD! When they sse the logo they think by default the the GD are a heavy metal band Laughing

2 situations which made me think:

- a friend came to visit us and have some vine, so there was a 1988 GD show, then after some 20 -30 mins where we were talking he just made a blink with his right eye to me and made me with his right hand the "smoking joint sign" ... he had no idea who was on ... but the solo inspired him some how;

- a couple of months ago I was talking with a friend about music and asked him if he had heard some acoustic Jerry Garcia shows, and he went "... Garcia who? Andy Garcia? ... the actor?", I said yes but that mybe it was better to listen to Kevin Kostner and his new band!

That's it for the European DeadHeads ....we live in the deserts you know! We have to evangelize the old continent Twisted Evil

Haha, when I lived there, it was a lost cause... I didn't really even try to spread it. Didn't help that I spent most of my time hanging out with the females than males... and musical conversion wasn't really something I was concerned about.

I did try to get the ex-wife to like them, and she did for a period... but only certain songs, it never fully clicked... and then we unclicked, so the mission was aborted.

yeah. ive discovered that music is really just a comfort thing. whether someone listens to music is usually never really about how "good" music is, but rather how comfortable they are with it. there have been studies that reflect this, but i dont care to dig it up.

on top of that, whenever someone puts on music at a party or in a group with other people, its really just a cock-fest. "hey, check out MY music. its the COOLEST!" --- which is why so many people drive with their windows down and music blaring.

anywho, with something especially like the grateful dead, its hard for people to really go out of their comfort zone to check out this kind of music. it breaks their cookie cutter idea of a song. sometimes the effects are too "out there" for them. sometimes theyre just not patient enough to let the music flow.

so unless people are just plain out to get new good music, heads that like to go out of their comfort zone and check out new stuff in general, or already into improvisational music like jazz (all three for me), people just dont give a damn.

so for me when people have "listened to the dead" and dont like it, whatever man. its their personal choice. for me, honestly, i got over it when i realized not everyone likes jazz ;)


--- on a side note, tizi, if you take the angle that the dead are a great jazz group, theyll probably be all over that.

I agree with the comfort thing to an extent... but there is music that is good and stands the test of time... and then there is crap. There variance of who thinks what is good/bad is quite broad, but there is something to be said for it... though impossible to pin down really.

Yes the comparison to jazz works in terms of the ability/willingness of the people to really feel the music.

I already quoted that guitarist from Naples who said:

"I want to thank the perople who close their eyes when they listen to music".

This is just right ....

one of the best/worst criticisms of seastones I've heard is by a head on a 74 aud tape (8/6 maybe?): Phil & Ned are drilling away and someone hollers "it sounds just like someone throwing up into the microphone!"

I was walking down the street one day and heard a guy at a stop light listening to the Slipknot from 8/13/75.... while i was wearing my 8/13/75 shirt! I gave him a wave and pointed at my shirt, and we gave each other a big thumbs up. Had a smile on my face the rest of the day. You would be surprised at the amount of deadheads in a hick state like Virginia

My wife and I were driving down the street a couple of months ago and I had Sisters And Brothers from the JGB live cd (the first one, with 2 discs) when a car with 3 20-something kids pulled up next to us at a stoplight. My wife looked over at them from the passenger seat and they motioned for her to roll down the window further. They then asked for directions before excitedly telling us how cool it was we were listening to Jerry. Needless to say, I was pretty shocked to have anyone recognize it and actually know who it was, especially kids that age in North Dakota. It did make me feel good that at least a few of them are finding the GD really are built to last!

My mom was a high school chemistry teacher and some kid was talking about how he didn't like heavy metal like the Grateful Dead and my mom said, "Um I'm pretty sure the Grateful Dead aren't heavy metal."

HAHAHA! My mom is a geeky chem teacher but she had me for a daughter so she couldn't help but hear a lot o' dead.

Ill correct that statement, western Virgina is very hickish. Once you to Richmond, Hampton and DC side of the state its very diverse. But the side that Roanoke is on is a lot different than the rest. The population tends to swing that way this side of state. Not giving my home state any crap, imo greatest state of the union.

Whats the worst thing you have heard about the Dead?


Keith Richards, being interviewed by the U.K.'s "Q" magazine back in the early 90s, told a joke about the Dead... "What do Grateful Dead fans say when the drugs wear off?" "I dunno. What do they say, Keith?" " What's this horrible music?"

Makes me laugh, anyway - even if it is such a horrid thing to say!

He he.

Yes Keith Richards has a very sarcastic sense of humor ... you just can't get angry with him.

I have heard that he was asked if he liked the Elton John's tune "Candle in the wind" - after Diana died and Elton John changed the lyrycs - well Keith said "... its just a song about two dead blondes" Laughing

So politically not correct ... I love that Laughing Laughing

Just heard a funny one

My facebook status: "This is another tragic lament of romance, lost love and hot lead" Bob Weir, 1974. Is there any better way to describe a grateful dead song?

Friend 1 response: Bad music
Friend 2 response: Complete shit

I still love my non-deadhead friends Laughing

This kinda of applies to this topic. Last night it was open mic night at a bar in town, and there was a guy playing acoustic guitar. He opened a song by saying, "this is a song that I wrote for my grandma. Its called BROKEDOWN PALACE". I thought to my self, he couldn't be stealing this song. Then after a few chords he broke into, "Fare you well..". Are you fucking seriouse man? I hope I wasn't the only one who knew he was a big fat phoney.

The guy was lucky I wasn't there. I would have so called him out on his bullshit!!!! I would have a walked up to the stage and started singing along with him or something. If your gonna do open mic at least give credit to the artist.

Haha if i had a few more beers in me I probably would have called him out. Or gone up and turned it into a duet. When I walked in he was singing So Many Roads, wonder if he took credit for that one too.

He stole it word for word. No changes. It was in a bar with a jock atmospher, pretty much a sports bar. Not a place where you would find any deadheads to call him out. It wasn't a bad cover of it either. But at least give Hunter/Garcia some credit man.

You should've totally called him out.
I am sure you weren't the only one who knew... deadheads are often incognito.

Here is one that I just remembered. Both of my parents were both hippies in the 60s, so I grew up listening to a lot of good music. Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The woodstock album (and movie), The Beatles amd much much much more. By the time I started going to shows and really started following the band around, I remember my parents telling me that they never got into the Grateful Dead. That was the first knife that went into my heart....then my father added, I just dont get you. I said why....his response was why do you want to follow a bunch of washed up hasbeens? That killed me....probably the worst thing I ever heard about the boys

I melted my face off so many times I moved to Indonesia. Nobody here knows who I am or what I've heard.

Born and raised in the U.K. in an Irish family. Got sent to a Catholic school run by French speaking American brothers! We had so many visitors from around the world (from their religious order's network) with their slide shows and stories. So I grew up thinking that 'there's a world out there' in which one can, not only travel, but live and work too. After reaching 27 years in the U.K., I decided to go abroad for a stint of voluntary work, and never returned...

That's great! I sicerily think that people like you make the difference nowadays! I am the first to say that I would not have the courage to do what you did ... so busy about my (and my family) business/problems/issues that we loose the "bigger picture". This is really great.

The catholic school you were in at which Catholic order belongs? Beneditians?

Sacred Heart order. Many of the brothers were U.S> citizens from the northern parts of Vermont and New Hampshire and were bi-lingual - speaking French among themselves. They had missions/schools/churches/hospitals in Africa, South America, Asia.
