So you are not a fan?

I was drinking at the time, so more than likely I was a jerk.

LOL! That's a great story.

Once I saw the Arc Angels and was so close to the stage that I was able to steal their set list notebook. There was other info in there, but I didn't call them or anything. ;)

GOD...those harmonics make me cry....the sound on that clip is incredible....that has to be the best live acoustic guitar sound i have ever heard....I don’t follow Tommy a lot but have to say that was as good as it gets, acoustically.

I heard that on 50 First Dates and thought it was a great version of the song. Just goes to show that great music and lyrics can be used in a variety of genres and still melt the wicked heart.

But I must say — I love that little dance they do.

Still trying to figure out how it is she can wobble her knees, twirl her fingers, AND walk forward at the same time.

Yes, “Django” was written in memory of the Belgian gipsy guitarist by the leader of the MJQ, John Lewis. It became their signature piece at every one of MJQ’s concerts.

For some reason, Cassidy has never quite moved me, even though Donna Jean had a prominent vocal on it (during the 70s). Looks Like Rain is a beautiful love song and this version is the oldest I could find on YouTube. There are some better recordings on the Grateful Dead Internet Archive for free listening.
