David Gans has a pretty cool gig: "Grateful Dead Expert"! Looking forward to DC-my seats are weak, but I'm HOPING for lax security so I can shake it on the floor!

I think its about $12 a month, but its cheaper if you pay for the full year at the begining.

^ that's cool, as long they don't let him take any leads... (I know, I know, back in the grateful dead days they never talked about leads or solos but instead referred to it as just an instrumental section)I love the dead, love warren, hate the dead w/ warren.

IT's true D-Wolf, Jam On is outta control good. It especially awesome for artists' side projects. For example, I hadn't heard any Al & The Transamericans, but after hearing them a couple times in my mom's new car, I'm hooked.
