Dead and Company

It was in the summer of 1995 that I went to my first and only Grateful Dead show in Salt Lake City. It was also the summer that Jerry Garcia died. I had just broken up (again) with my girlfriend, and was looking to escape the pain in a sea of colorful tie dye and potent smoke.
I had little appreciation for the music, that came later in life. As the years passed, I grew to love the music of the Grateful Dead, and was thrilled to hear that three former members of the band, along with John Mayer, formed the group Dead and Company.
And so, in true deadhead fashion, I get a plane ticket from Arizona to Oregon, and road trip my way down to the college town of Eugene for the show.

Incredible isn’t a strong enough word to describe the night. I’ll let this live excerpt from the show do all the talking…..

Wench, bring my ale, what say you?
