43. Agreed

I had tickets to the 30th anniversary tour and gave them all up (never know when it will be the last show) to go on a honeymoon for entire fall tour. As you know that didn't happen. I thought it was going to be ugly and it was. I was hoping that things would calm down. I mean Jerry Garcia receiving death threats FFS! My sister started taking me in the mid 70's the 1974 Iowa State Fair show with the wall of sound being my first. After about 1985-86 it was never the same for me. 1989 was the last carefree good year for me. Could have been the products I miss my friends who I only know by nicknames but saw year in and year out for the best part of 25 years. I miss the music. Jerry could razour me in half like a hot wire through butter or gently rain down a musical waterfall of sound that truly did sooth my soul. I didn't go for the party although it was awfully good at times. I went for the 3 hours of pure musical ecstasy why else would you put up with all the cops, all the attempted setups and the DEA. Cheers! The world is a much much darker place and I don't think this darkness is going to give.
