Public Apology to The Grateful Dead



I am sincerely sorry that I overlooked the members of this band that are deceased. I feel really bad about it. So I will be updating "Gone But Not Forgotten" today to include these guys:


The Dead is known for many things but the first thing I always think of is their immense, intense following. Deadheads are probably the most loyal, committed fans in history! Any Deadheads out there? Again, I don't know how they missed my list and I thank the two readers who caught this major faux pas.

I am GRATEFUL to:


"Their musical influences varied widely with input from the psychedelic rock of the era, combined with blues, jazz, rock and roll, and bluegrass. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."

Obviously, a huge dead-head here... first concert, Rochester, NY 1972... leaning on the stage - just after their return from Europe (Europe 72 album- YES I said album)

Dozens of others after that...some very clear in my head... some lost in a haze.... hehehe

I still have not added them but am going to, I just need to find some time.

Bond,
Yeah, I bet some of your memories are a bit fuzzy! I'd like to hear what other concerts you've been to as well!

Dead keyboardists should have gotten hazardous duty pay. I wonder if that's where Spinla Tap got the idea for their drummers...
