Some of the most intense show's i saw were at the Garden. Boston and Madison square :grin:The Spectrum in Philly is the first place I saw them and was were I got to see them bust out Unbroken Chain(unbelievable night). I'm not saying east coast shows arn't great it's just out west there's so much more family at the show's. See'ing the Dead in the bay area is so special since it's were they started. Alot of the older family only would go to west coast show's(at least in the period i toured). There presence made a big difference in the vibe. East coast tour's and west coast tour's were different. West coast was alot more mellow ,free and open and east coast was like a "the circus is in town" attitude ,full of crazy energy.They both have there strengths, but nothing beat's Jerry in the bay area(except mabey Red Rocks :wink:)
Either way i'd give anything and go anywere to spend one more night with him.
Hell i'd go see him at the south pole in my underwear if i had the chance to see him again
Almost 8 years gone and i miss him every day and i always will

BTW those of you that got to see the dead in 78 or before can't imagine my envy
you lucky fucker's  :smile:

although i've never been to an 'official' dead show, I often end up there when i'm tripping. It's usualy pretty dark, Jerry's there, Thier playing (nothing in particular)and thier is no greater feeling in the world. usualy at night trips when i'm in my bed and i have my eye's closed and everything is really intence. The euphoric feelings are overwhelming. If i were to die, that's where my heaven would be.

never having seen them on the west coast I was never exposed to that, but i can understand, I would have loved to see the JGB at the Warfield or the boys playing Red Rocks. I've seen them in 10 east coast states and the family element for us was that we got to see the same friends year in and year out all up and down the coast.

JGB at the Warfield was like heaven. Such a small intimate place :grin:
Even though you didn't make it out west you got to see them in there peak year's.
Didn't i read in a thread you were at the Englishtown show? Jesus Christ how awesome was that!!!!!!!!! West coast or east coast the seventie's were the most cosistently incredible year's musically for the boy's. I would give absolutaly anything to see em in the 68-78 era. You got the experiance the best of the dead man!!!!!!!!!!they were grease back then. And it was just deadheads and not the million's of idiot's that came just to get wasted that happened after touch came out.
I want a time machine. Go see them at the filmore east or west. HEAVEN :grin:

Englishtown was a great experience as was seeing Jerry 10 nights on Broadway, or the 1975-76 JGB shows with Nicky Hopkins. Queens College comes to mind in 1976, they played all night long. In the mid to late 70's my favorite venue was the Capitol theater in NJ.

Lets see what year was the string of shows at Radio City Music Hall...must have been mid 80's. Were you there ChinaCat?

Radio city was before i came on board, but i was at the braodway JGB show's. Only got into 3 of them. First time in NYC :grin:Shit Ripple we probably have seen each other at show's numerous times. I was just thinking about the venue i`ve seen the most show's at and it's got to be MSG. Those 9 show runs add up. I bet i have seen more than 30-40 shows there. We would park in that parking garage next to it and stay there the whole time. Camping in a parking garage in NYC now that's crazy :smile: You know as i was saying west coast shows were better i got to thinking about the music. The music really was spectacular at some of those east coast show's. Especially at MSG. On a good night there it seems that they could really feed off that New York energy. New York's such a high energy city, all those people in that small of space. Damn what a venue!!!!!!!!!!! Boston garden too!!!!!!!!
After all those year's on tour i feel i took it for granet. I thought the Dead would continue forever and even got bored of the touring lifestyle. It wore me out. But damn Ripple i never realized what we had till it was gone. I love Jerry so fuckin much it hurt's. I love my life now, i got a wonderful wife and 3 awesome kids, but i still ache to hear that sound that only comes from Jerry Garcia playing live.
I am very greatful to have had the privelage of being part of it all.
:grin:GOD BLESS THE GRATEFUL DEAD :grin:
