I know this is a pretty broad poll. The possibilities are endless for this question, but I feel like this at least covers the basics.

I think all of the members are pretty much set on the idea of playing until the death, barring any major health set backs.

I have mentioned in many posts that 1994 Boston garden run was my last set of shows and for me the magic was over. I knew i wasn't going to any shows in 95, but if the boys were still all alive I know in would have caved in at some time and started going to shows again....the grateful dead is part of my DNA....there would have been no escaping it.

I think at some point they would have taken a break... I mean, by the last years, Jerry was basically playing, for the most part, from what I have read, out of a sense of obligation to the other guys, and to fund the continued employment of the employees.

At some point I imagine he would've said, enough! But, maybe not, if 30 years didn't do it...

It's nice to think that if Jerry had lived there would have been some sort of a re-discovery of the spirit which would have fueled the music. Jerry could have taken a step back, assessed his life, and re-emerged with the band reinvigorated. But I don't think that was possible. The monster was too big and needed to be fed. And there was no one willing or able to say stop. Everyone involved knew that he was dying but didn't do anything to change the situation. With or without drugs things would have returned to the way they were very quickly. Too many people needed Jerry to do too much for them to let him go. Jerry left his best interests up to other people. And the other people looked out for their best interests not his. If that didn't change he would have died one way or another not long after he did. Or become an ugly, resentful host sucked dry by the parasites clamoring over one another like ticketless fans over the fence. At least while there was still money and blood left to suck. Death may have been the only way out of what he helped create.

Interesting...
Obviously his heavy drug use led him to allow others to run the rest of his life... so long as he could get high, he was cool with it.

In the end, he was an artist... and that's a different sort of person than most...
