| ||How people can post such disgusting comments about a person as harmless and kind as Jerry Garcia, I just don't know. As far as the Grateful Dead goes, whether you like their jamming or not, they have some provoking songs, which isn't surprising considering their primary lyricist is the literary poet Robert Hunter.
Let me name a few good songs: "Box of Rain," "Dark Star," "Eyes of the World," "Fire On the Mountain," "Mountains of the Moon," "Rosemary," "Saint Stephen," "Scarlet Begonias," "Sugar Magnolia," "Terrapin Station," and "Uncle John's Band." They have a large selection.
It is well known that their albums weren't very compelling, but that makes them more admirable in this day and age when the album is dying and record companies are destroying artists to hold on. Not only that, but the Grateful Dead are the leaders of digital music, and literally thousands of complete concerts are available from sites such as archive.org and sugarmegs.org for free.
Maybe you dislike the Grateful Dead, but I bet you wish your favorite band was cool enough to have 3,000 shows up for you to listen to at any time. Think of how awesome that would be. Well, guess what! Your favorite band ain't that cool or kind.|
