: I've never been able to get into the Dead. Too much California nonsense for me. They have NO guts whatsoever, thats for sure. Kenny G rocks harder than they do. I've seen them live a bunch of times, though. Either loved or hated them, depending on the day. Saw them in Vegas in 1992 and it was one of the worst shows I've ever seen. Sting opened and he blew them off the stage. I know everybody thinks its cool when Garcia starts tuning up in the middle of a song. But that day he was so blitzed that spent the entire show tuning up. Tough to take with no lysergic.
No quarrel with your love 'em or hate 'em
I saw them hundreds of times from '77 to '95,
and often felt that way, especially towards
But there was always that next show...
No guts ?
Bill Graham said it best one night when
he introed them - "They're not the best at what
They're the ONLY ones that do what they do."
BTW, Sting opened in '93.
