Get your tin foil hats ready, because the end is near..... Not only are the legendary Grateful Dead playing their last ever shows together, but they are going to have Trey play lead in the Jerry seat?! Surely this is the end....Put your heads between your legs and kiss your sweet band goodbye.

They ended, for all practical purposes, when Jerry Garcia died, RIP kind soul.

This is a culture I don't see dying out within my lifetime at least. The Grateful Dead is part of three generations among my family and friends (my extended family really).

We still find local bands that cover the Dead and go dancing nearly every Friday and these cover bands exist all over the place.

The band itself of course is the catalyst of all of this but the music and the people that fall in love it just keeps growing or at least sustaining itself. I honestly feel bad for people that have never experienced this phenomenon.

A Dead song that sums it all up really well:



"Keep on dancin' thru the daylight, Greet the mornin' air with song
No ones's noticed, but the band's all pack and gone. Was it ever there at all?
But they keep on dancin' C'mon children, C'mon children, Come on clap your hands
Well the cool breeze came on Tuesday, And the corn's a bumper crop
And the fields are full of dancin' Full of singin' and romancin'
The music never stopped."

Yes I'm going to try to get tickets as is my Mom, my Dad who will fly all the way to Chicago from Ireland even though he's planning on coming over at the end of August. My former babysitter who became like an Aunt, my Moms best friend another like an Aunt... their daughters whom I used to babysit and now have kids of their own. But we're all fine if none of us get to go and happy for anyone that does. We've got each other and plenty of nights we get to hear it live and all the memories of the countless shows we've been too all over the North East.

The Live "So Far" concert montage of "Rhythm Devils" and "Throwing Stones"… they been saying the end is coming nigh on half a century…

The kids they dance and shake them bones,

The Politicians throwing stones,

Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.

The grateful dead will never "Fade Away"

Funny to see this thread this morning. I was hanging out with some friends last night and we were talking about this.

My husband and I are going to try and get tickets and our friends have family in Chicago so, we would have a place to crash. I've heard all the hotels are already booked so, it would work out perfect.


It's definitely not the same without the big guy but, it would still be amazing to be able to go. Fingers crossed.

Yup,

Same as Zeppelin when Bonham passed.

Some people just can't be replaced.

Peace

After 50 years of concerts, it's time to hang it up. I know there are some who felt they should have quit when Jerry died, but at the time, the band was still middle-aged men who's whole life was the Grateful Dead. They can retire and live off of what I assume are some investments, as well as their records which continue to sell, plus residuals from "classic rock" airplay. reply to: theyrout2getus

Interestingly, I've been having dreams of being stuck in a certain city around dusk, into the night. There's always some massive catastrophe going, building falling into a large body of water, water enveloping half the city, lots of running. After a few with this city re-occurring, continually going through similar distress (and lots of water), one person in the dream mentioned the city being Chicago. Looking at google maps and seeing lake Michigan propped up against the city sent chills down my spine as the vivid imagery of the dreams returned.

Probably nothing at all but it's been really bothering me lately. Thought this might be an appropriate context to share

Well, crap, I'm stuck up in a hospital bed here at the University of Chicago hospital... I hope your "vision" doesn't come true soon


Anyways, scary stuff indeed, especially when a dream/vision/thought can have such an influence over you.. I never want to discredit anything nowadays, but I hope you are off here

I miss Jerry. Trey? I like Trey. He is cool and all...but what does he have to do with the Grateful Dead?

"It' Ok, at least Donna isn't supposed to be there"

It's nice that the band can rise above the petty bickering between the two fanbases. Both Phish and The Grateful Dead are awesome (I personally like GD better), and how the fans treat it like you can only like one or the other is annoying.

Fare thee well!
