Thoughts On The Dead

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

Pete Townshend, Jerry Garcia, And Some Coke

“And then the alien jumps down, right, and eats Harry Dean Stanton.”

“Blimey, Jer. ‘Ow’d you get away, then?”

“Pete, for the third time: this didn’t happen to me.”

“Right, right. Go on.”

“So Sigourney Weaver takes off her clothes for some reason, right? And she’s got on a pair of panties that are, like, not functional. They’re just not big enough to perform the task of underwear.”

“Blimey. Fuck her, didja?”

“Again, Pete: movie.”

“Sorry. Right.”

“And then she blasts the sucker out of the airlock.”

“You guys have an airlock? Where? On your bus?”

“Is Entwistle around?”

“Yeah, but he’s not much of a talker.”

“I would prefer that.”


  1. In the Summer of 1975, Pete Townsend and his family lived in suburban Walnut Creek, CA. They spent the summer hanging out with the Dead crew, when Pete wasnt busy studying Meher Baba.

    It’s not like I made it his up.

    kind of looks like Jerry and Pete are in my neighbour’s “Rec Room”. Green Shag Carpet and TeeVee in the Simulated Wood-Grained Paneled wall. possibly an Air Hockey Set in the corner. stay out of Grumpy Neighbour Dad’s Workshop in the Lower Basement where he keeps Model Planes he never flies at the Cricket Club………wants to keep them perfect, you see.

  3. Sorry in advance if this is Repeating What’s Already Been Said elsewhere about this set of pictures….but…

    I presume they are in something like a Backstage room or maybe even a Trailer during the Day on the Green October ’76 shows…at least according to Jerilyn B’s Family Album site

    Bobert Weir wore a sola topee (aka Pith Helmet) during one of these days too.
