    Grateful Dead are good. But i think they are overrated from their legandary status.

    Maybe i'm just not "getting" their music.

    A well i cant deny how they affected the world.
     
  4. i don't think the grateful dead is overrated. if anything i think they're not given enough credit for their talent. they deserve just as much recognition in the rock & roll hall of fame as everyone else in there but for some reason they don't get it...i don't understand. but if we're on the topic of the dead i wanted to ask everyone something...what do you think of the song china doll? it was the first song by the grateful dead that i ever heard and it made me want to get into them more. i can honestly say it is one of my favorites but when i tell people that they look at me like i'm crazy and say it's probably their least favorite. and tell me some of your favorites

    now a days music is all about the vocals. but i think good music incorporates some vocals with kick ass instrumentals. That is what makes the Dead so good.
     
  7. so, are any of you kings going on tour this summer? [​IMG]
     
  8. i would love to tour with the dead but i just can't afford it...hopefully one day i can. i will be seeing them at bonnaroo and the july 28th show in cuyahoga falls. i wish i could see them more

    ive come to the conclusion to have a good band you must have a good keyboard player. i love the dead.....first song i heard was friend of the devil and it was completly what i did not expect but i fell in love instantly
     
  10. i think every band needs someone to jam on the harmonica. it sounds so awesome

    but you cant overdo it. jimmy buffet makes good use of it, but some other bands dont.
     
  12. i love to play the harmonica. last night i was watching this band and i fell over in my mind with the harmonica player. the saddest thing happened though, after the show was over he came to talk to me, and my friend chris told him i was his girl...so the harmonica guy went away and i'll never see him again.
    :(
    but i did learn a lot about microphone movements from him...oooooooooooh lordy!

    robert plant played the harmonica. maybe thats what made all the difference for Led Zeppelin.
     
  14. if you guys can try to get the cover of no woman, no cry by ziggy marley and blues traveler, it's so amazing how he jams on the harmonica in that song!
     
  15. i have friends who down them for their simple songwriting, but some of it isn't so simple--terrapin for example. jerry doesn't shred, so he gets forgotten as one of the greats. his bag of tricks was bottomless. sometimes they weren't tight, and the singing was always a little out of tune, but there's soul in that music, and i can't wait to see the remaining members w/ warren haynes at bonnaroo. the dead rock.

    I am making the Jul 27 show in Detroit. Its a first date too!!!!!!!

    I admit, that last year when I saw them in VA beach, i spent a few songs trying to compare to when Jerry was there, but after like the 3rd song, I just let it happen like I shoulda and had the best time....you can still feel Jerry there anyway.
     
  17. i love the dead so much...its just the amazing vibes i get when i listen to them..there sooo great...there music makes me so happy..hehe i cant wait to see them this summer...but only two shows...i wish i can tour around..but i dont have friends who would ever want too:(..peace and love

    yaya Grateful Dead iz guud :)

    So good, I have been a loyal DeadHead since show #1 in 1979, traveled unmeasurable miles, seen every VW bus on the planet, eaten the most kind veggie eggrolls, thrown the most frisbees, kicked the most hackysacks... the list goes on and on.

    In my humble opinion, there is nothing, absolutely nothing in the world like a Grateful Dead concert!

    Nothin left to do but smile, smile, smile :D :D
