    This is an interesting article.  An American cultural relic of the last half of the 20th Century.  Youngish Dead fan explains his relationship with the band and his experience at the last show in Chicago in 2005.

    Ready To Die, Three Days of Drugs and,Disintergration With the Grateful Dead

    Exerpt:

    I never fully understood why grunge separatists and punk rock zealots loathed the Dead until now. This parking lot shudders with every crusty artifact of Aquarian cliché; the tombs of the 60s scraped and deposited in the city of wind, burnt out and loaded, human resin. What must’ve once felt unalloyed and underground seems like a final cash grab to appease these apostles, desperate for one more Saturday night.

    I harldy listen to any late 80's-90's dead.  For me it's all about the 67-72 years the "Pigpen" era.  It's what melts my walls makes me taste purple and puts me on the burnt side of the toast.

    Definitely a lot more 'misses' in the later years. For me, I didn't like where Jerry took the midi tones. Was too synthy for me. And his health, both mental and physical, was really showing.

    I still think about how much we worried about him as I have some friends that cover This Could Be The Last Time here locally.

    But Brent!!!! had a way of relating with Jerry onstage that Keith lacked imo

    Welnick shows were plain yuck to me, Bruce Hornsby came along to help that a bit

    Born in '87, been listening to them since I started listening to music.

    Would have loved to see a live concert.

    This article popped on on my feed a few days ago.  I thought it was a interesting read.

    I lived in CO for 5 years and never went to Red Rocks, I was in Fort Collins.

    I missed that! Damn...
