I was and still am a Dead fan so Skeletons from the closet but oddly enough I also liked Terrapin Station ...

Friend of the devil, Casey Jones, Sugar Magnolia, Trucking.....

I was all over the place when it came to music from the dead, the doors, jethro tull to loggin and Messina...yes Charlie Daniels , Fleetwood Mac Dan FogelbergI, James Taylor, The Who, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Fun some nights ....never was a fan of Peter frampton sorry guys. I like lyrics so if I had to put a best in that category by far Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel but lots come close.

Yeah well most dead heads didnt, I painted the dancing terrapins on my glovebox in my beatle lol.

That's how you can be sure it's a good one. Anything Dead Heads thought was bad was probably something I would approve of. And if a Deadhead
secretly liked Terrapin Station then they'd keep it quiet so as not to draw the scorn of the rest of the bunch.

I could tell some stories, but suffice it to say that going to a couple of Dead shows convinced me that the hippie thing was
just not my cup of tea. I still like some of their music, but......counterculture? Not too much. I found them to be far less tolerant and
way more conformist than they made themselves out to be. No wonder they "need a miracle every day". None of them thought to bring food
or money to the weekend festival. Who knew, maaannnnn?

Great musicians with a huge body of solid work and an even huger cataglog of just awful filler bullshit. My favorite Dead (or was it Garcia?) song is probably "The Wheel"
which is a beautiful song once you skipped over the 15 minutes of trippy nonsense that precedes it. It's probably considered a piece of shit by the herd, but
I couldn't care less.

I used to feel sorry for Jerry Garcia. He never wanted to be Jesus to those people. He was trapped.

Nah, not really. I suppose at that point I was more a rocker type than a hippie, but back then things all sort of blurred.
Picture a Boston guy who couldn't stand being around idiots and that was probably me.

Byrone Sneakerlaces. I had a conversation with a genius who called himself Byrone Sneakerlaces and, according to
him, I "was a bum-mer, maaannnn". This was because I didn't share his narrow worldview about adherence to the
bizarre Deadhead code.



73 HS or grammar school?

I don't know what this means. I graduated HS in 73, if that is what you mean.

Going to throw a left-field one in here.

Sinatra's "In the Wee Small Hours" from 1955. One of the first-ever 'concept' albums and it's a real gem. A lot of lonely, heartache in the music.
