Fans?

Still a better per capita survival rate than keyboard players.

RainDawg: RainDawg: I stepped in a dead body after a Foxboro show when we broke down on the GW bridge and I had to hike out to find a phone. It was way too decomposed to be a deadhead unless it was from a previous show. My shoe got stuck and I ended up abandoning both my shoes and all hope when I gave up to head back to the van. I've always wondered if my shoe is sitting in an evidence locker somewhere as part of a cold case. I've never told a soul that story until now.

Flushing Meadows '87, not Foxboro.


I was about to say - if you ended up on the GW Bridge after a Foxboro show, you took waaaaay too much of the brown acid.

some_beer_drinker: the grateful dead suck


That is incorrect. You may not like them but they certainly do not suck. Plus they were responsible for one of the greatest moments of rock and roll excess. The Wall of Sound.

You'll have to ask Ann Coulter for the answer to that. Careful; she might kill you, apparently.

puckrock2000: In 1995, a man's body was found on the side of a highway by a Grateful Dead concert in Atlanta.

Some guy was found dead by the highway near the Omni, so that means he was a Deadhead? Now that's really stretching it.

/more likely he was a Led Zep fan


Or even Phil Collins. IT'S IN THE SONGS MAN!!! "Hit & Run Records" ... "In the Air Tonight ", "Dreaming While You Sleep"...

Phil Face has been trying to tell us for almoat 40 years that he's the murderer!!!!

Wow, murdered by a microbus...

"Two men were found dead in a ghastly Volkswagen van crash in 1995, but only one of the men could be identified. The only clues to who the second person was: two Grateful Dead tickets in his pocket."

The horror! Wait, I bet you could make an entire movie series about murderous cars, or even Volkswagens with minds of their own!!

Re-reading: this whole article is invalidated by its first sentence.

There was no Grateful Dead in 1996.

RainDawg: Super Chronic: Dead trivia time. What do the following songs have in common, uniquely among Dead songs: Box of Rain, Ripple, Cumberland Blues, New Speedway Boogie, It Must Have Been the Roses, Crazy Fingers, Row Jimmy, Walk in the Sunshine?

(Hint: Saint of Circumstance almost has this quality, but not quite.)

All songs the bandcouldn't play live because they were really just a bluegrass band on acid? Phil Lesh is amazing though.


I said "uniquely" just to avoid smartass answers. Alas.

CSB: My freshman year in kollitch, my surprise roommate was an evangelical Deadhead. You know the type: Dragging around a couple of milk crates filled with bootlegs, convinced that if he played enough of them at sufficient volume at you, you would See The Light.

As someone who was heavily into Jazz, classical, prog, and Zappa, i.e. people who were not only expressive but could actually play in tune, being force-fed this stack of poorly recorded live performances by what sounded like a sloppy stoner garage band with an OK guitarist had precisely the opposite effect.

Thankfully, he dropped out after the first semester.

A few years later, I did finally come around to liking a few of their studio albums, and I'll defend Garcia's work with Dave Grisman, but all in all, they're vastly overrated, IMO.

It's the heat that came down on them and murdered them for smilin' on cloudy days.


I seem to remember a couple who died at the hands of police around 1990 or so in separate incidents.

Patrick Shanahan:  ″compression of the neck during restraint,″

″It's not an accident, not a suicide, it's a homicide - meaning death at the hands of another,″ said coroner's investigator David Campbell.

Adam Katz mysteriously died near a Dead show in New Jersey in '89 too and although it was never proven it was said to be at the hands of security guards
