Wow! Great pics, and nice read. too.

What great concept - the old school musicians from back in the day passing the torch to the newer generation of artists. Sweet!

Again, Phil is missing from the picture - and what a shame that is. After just completing his book, it is obvious he held Bill Graham in very high regard and probably would have liked to be there....

Bet both shows were a blast; but its kind of funny that the author seemed to favor the latter show which was a $20 ticket compared to the $75 ticket the first night. Nice to see the younger SF bands honoring their roots. Great photos and coverage.

A mostly nice read -- but do we have to hear about the
"state of the Dead" again and again! As far as I'm concerned,
when Jerry Garcia passed on, so did the Grateful Dead! If you think otherwise, it's time to take your rose-colored glasses off. Let Weir, Hart, Lesh and Kreutzmann do what they please...instead of chasing something that has not been there anymore for a decade.

jjwood - You actually think the remaining members of the Dead are chasing something?....Should they have stopped playing because Jerry died, rolled up the carpet, and retired to sunny Arizona? Glad they didn't - we wouldn't have gotten to see Phil's 5.5 hr. show at The Joint over Vegoose weekend. By the way, it didn't seem like he was chasing anything that night - you obviously missed that one, being as it was after Jerry died....

They're still making music because that's what they do. And to ignore the Grateful Dead legacy is pretty naive', as that's who they are.

Anyone who appreciated the Grateful Dead realizes this, and accepts the musicians for who they are and where they came from - it's too bad you don't. Time to put back on those rose-colored glasses, my friend, or better yet, make way for someone else.

I, for one, love hearing those songs which brought me such joy for so many years, with, or without, Jerry.

The Tea Leaf night was the most crazy fun I have had since High Sierra and Earthdance. WOW
