Who fucks with the Grateful Dead? I don't know any other skaters who do, except I have seen Grosso wearing a steelie shirt...

They're my favorite band.  Mike V is a big fan, too.

I'm one of those people who thinks American Beauty and Workingman's Dead are really good albums and I listen to them regularly, but whenever anyone starts talking to me about anything else it just annoys me so much and I try to walk away as quickly as possible.

I like the Dead and also listen to the side project New riders of the purple sage often. Erik Ellington has some Grateful Dead graphics on Baker that upon research I saw was rereleased on deathwish. Think I had a sweatshirt or something of it. Donít know how to post pics but itís the Skeleton with the crown of roses

One good thing about the pandemic is that Dead and Slow cancelled summer tour.  Much better just staying at home listening to 70s Legion of Mary/ JGB.  Going on top in the early 90s, there were lots of people skating on the lot. Even going so far as to load uhauls full of ramps atvenues.

I've tried to get into the Dead quite a few times, and I can enjoy their first album, Anthem of the Sun and Aoxomoxoa but that's about it.  I don't mind when people play them, though.

This song rules:

Thatís a bummer/elitist/bullshit attitude to have.  Some of us like Dead & Co and had tickets to summer tour.  I was really looking forward to the show.  If you don't like them, that's cool.  Stay home and listen to records.   But, how is it a good thing that a show you weren't even going to got cancelled?  What a jerk.

I had tickets to 6 different venues, 11 shows total this summer. I tried so hard to like it, but if it hasn't happened in years, it's not going to happen now.  JM isn't even the problem. His playing rips, some songs I can't stand his singing, but I think most of the dislike is the scene now, and Otiel trying so hard to be cool hurts my eyes. He's like if Zion was on stage trying to dance barefoot. (But I like him in Pages band).  Having saw ratdog 200+ times, Bobby may be my biggest let down. Possibly the greatest rhythm player ever refuses to pick up the tempo ever. Now every song is a snooze fest.   I'm sure there will be other Grateful Dead cover bands playing smaller venues this fall so didn't get too worked up. 
With Terrapin Crossroads jams on replay we will survive.  That and my LoM bootleg stash and I'm ready for whatever the pandemic brings.  Sorry if my opinion offends you, but that's the one tour I'm glad I won't be going to this summer.

Offended isnít the word... I just donít get not wanting other people to have a good time.  I donít like Imagine Dragons.  Some people do.  Iím not glad that Imagine Dragonsí shows got cancelled and their fans donít get to go to the show.  That would be weird.

My wife was always really into them and I knew a few songs but was (am) way too big a Ledhead to really give them a chance. Then I watched the "Long, Strange Trip" docuseries on Amazon.

Now I get it, and have been making up for lost time ever since. Wish I would've caught one of the D&Co shows in NYC last year. Saw Grateful Shred at Brooklyn Bowl. They fucking rip.

Greatful Shred is way better than Dead and Co. in my opinion. I would love to see them some day. I saw Mapache (project by two of the guitar players) in Portland 2-3 years ago.

The Grateful Dead is like black licorice.

I enjoy their music. I like Jerry Garciaís lap steel guitar on ďI used to be a kingĒ by Graham Nash.
