seriously now, i never grew up with the grateful dead. in certain ways, i’m extremely happy to phish has called it quits. although, phish did attempt to accomplish a similar stunt and failed (read: phish.net faq on the meatstick). i don’t like to see the members of the dead doing these things. personally, i don’t like to see the members of the dead doing anything in the name of the dead. for them to think that they’re out there creating new music just seems wrong to me. they’re still playing the same songs they wrote in 1968. i think that it just doesn’t seem like they’re trying as hard as they could. why don’t they just stop? why don’t they write new songs? well, who cares. mickey hart is trying to break the guiness book of world records for headiest drum circle ever.
