In 1970 I bought the cassette (for younger listeners google it!!) of Workingman’s Dead. Got home super excited only to find the cassette was defective. The following day I took it back to the shop only to be told they thought I had damaged it and refused to change it!

I felt it was an omen and never bought another GD album!

Luckily a skinny girl lifted the curse and I finally became a fan

Great reminder of a great band

You can still get a copy of it, lol!

Tape trading of live shows was a big deal in the way back…now you can get most shows on internet archive. I think when internet archive first started it was mainly a place for dead heads to upload their recordings.

I find it interesting how the tech culture and hippie culture are intertwined.

I’m happy to know that the curse was lifted off of you. Thanks for listening!

Personally, I like it because you and JoeBone sound like a Deadesque tribute to Billy Idol. Very cool! Even had a Steve Stevens does Grateful Dead guitar vibe going on ‘;0)

Anyway, for the well deserved Ed Pick! the Grateful Dead theme got the love.

Did you check out Joe Bone & The Dark Vibes live videos on Youtube?

Thanks for the pick!

Ha! What a mash up. Billy and the Dead….A nice day for a tie dye wedding, lol.

Thanks for the Steve Stevens comparison, though I’m humbled by it..he is a monster on the frets…and brings back memories of my days on the Sunset Strip.

I actually played at Gazzarris in my first Hollywood band, Blowtorch Opera. With the passing of Eddie this week it all seems somehow connected.

What a long strange trip it’s been….

Thanks for shaking my memory tree. I had forgotten about Sunset in Hollywood. During a 1970s “hit the road as a musician” break from my college daze, lived (crashed) for a brief period near Cahuenga and Vine. One memorable gig was hauling my Hammond and Leslie down to Newport Beach for a one night gig with Henry Vestine.

That’s rich! I lived on Balboa peninsula for a year, jamming in a punk thrash band in Huntington Beach. The landscape has changed so much since then.

Great concept, fantastic execution.
As a life-long hippie sympathizer I approve.

I though you might like this one. You came into my mind while I was recording the background vocals, I think because you remind me of Frank Zappa, and the low harmony sounded Speckish to me. Thanks for listening and for your hippy sympathizing.
