Thoughts On The Dead

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

Corry from Lost Live Dead (where there is a spectacular post about the San Francisco Whiskey-A-Go-Go for you to gobble down) also notes that, in addition to sharing a drummer, Neil Diamond also shared a Mrs. Donna Jean with the Dead.

She’s on the left in your headphones, with a couple of other singers, and makes her entrance around 35 seconds in; the song hit #22 on the Billboard charts and, while all of the success can’t be attributed to Mrs. Donna Jean’s backing vocals, I think most of it can.


  1. I may or may not have been the one to point that out on Lost Live Dead.
    But most likely not. The info is there for all to see.
    Mostly, I just want all Dead fans to appreciate Neil Diamond and Elvis Presley.
    Here’s the awesome LLD post and my comment is at the end.

  2. You have picked a hard row to hoe, Brian.
