Thoughts On The Dead

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

One Man Gathers What Another Man Steels

FACT: I wish my name were Sneaky Pete.

FACT: The incomparable and indispensable Lost Live Dead is back with a new post to inform, entertain, and illuminate; this time about Garcia’s possible introduction to the pedal steel guitar. (Well, reintroduction. Go read the post, and it’ll make sense.)

FACT: You’re among friends here, Enthusiasts. Rock Nerds are welcome at Thoughts on the Dead. Spend a week leafing through digitized copies of obscure rock mags from the 70’s? Fine by me. Able to list every member of Yes? Come on in.

But you need to pay respect.

Recognize. Recognize your betters, motherfuckers. Seven volumes? Was Proust the road manager of The Byrds? This is Rock Nerdery of the purest kind: uncut and mind-bending.

I salute it.

FACT: Two out of the seven volumes are primarily concerning the question “Did anyone see Gram? He was right here a second ago.”
