Okay, Enthusiasts, we have some answers. Not all, but some.
This picture that I posted yesterday is indeed Graceland: this is in the backyard where Elvis, his stillborn twin Jesse, and their parents are buried. The date is 4/3/95; the Dead had shows at The Pyramid in Memphis on the 1st and 2nd of April, and took the day to go to Graceland before truckin’ up to Birmingham.
Graceland. Memphis, Tennessee.
Was Garcia’s traveling partner nine years old, and a child of his first marriage?
No. He took the drummers.
Not as poetic.
Not nearly. A poster on Dead.net says this:
Billy’s all the way on the left of the pic, and Mickey is in the yellow non-Dead shirt next to Garcia. (Mickey tried the Merch Yoink at the Graceland gift shop and was tackled by four Elvis impersonators.) And that might be Bobby behind the column. It also might not be.
Whether or not the band sang Heartbreak Hotel in three-part harmony is unknown.
