Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

I Learned It From Watching You, Dead

The important difference between the Grateful Dead and Phish (and every other jam band) is this: the Dead didn’t grow up listening to the Dead. Everything else is just style.

  2. That kind of: “Says it all.”

  3. The Phish are real good players. The Grateful Dead are cosmic messengers.

  4. I think the biggest difference is that the grateful dead had garcia/hunter weir/Barlow lesh/crazy guy from Oregon writing their songs. No other jam band has a catalog of songs so diverse and beautiful occurring between the jams and nonsense. Also, what you said.

  5. Gravitar Profundus
