If This Is True – My Grandmother is Doing Summer-Saults in Her Grave!!!

August 29, 2008

I don’t even know what to say. I am at a loss for words. But trust me… after you are done reading this, I will have PLENTY to say… trust!

Barack Obama’s run for the presidency has launched many different grassroots campaigns. The most interesting may be the revival of the Grateful Dead.

I am told that on Oct. 13, possibly either in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, the Dead will get back together for at least one show to raise money for and awareness about Obama.

All four living original members will play together — Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann. The band’s leader, Jerry Garcia, died in 1995 from a heart attack.

Substituting for Garcia will be Allman Brothers and Gov’t Mule master musician Warren Haynes.

If all goes well, my sources say, the band will then set out on a major tour in summer 2009. – Grateful Dead Back Together for Obama – Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment.

ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME!!!??? Excuse the censored curse word, but honestly. My hero, my guiding light, MY GRANDMOTHER [God rest her soul] was the biggest Grateful Dead fan on the planet. In her youth, she would travel to all their shows. She was in love with Jerry. For Christ sake, she had the freaking dancing bear stickers on her car until the day she died. She kept 2 pictures by her bed – The Pope and Jerry Garcia. Not to mention her “Dead Head” wall, which had pictures of Jerry and all the family members who had passed on. So, needless to say, it sickens me that the group would even consider thinking about getting back together WITHOUT JERRY! It just doesn’t make sense. HE was the Grateful Dead. Period. GOD I am fuming. It is funny because the article says “substituting for Garcia” – like he is out on mental health issues for the time being. UGH.

I am going to take this opportunity to apologize to my Grandmother, who is in heaven above, for using the Lord’s name in vain – several times. BUT SHE UNDERSTANDS – TRUST ME!

UUGGHHH… what is this world coming to?

    Well, first that are not getting back as the Grateful Dead and a little news for you: the other members of the Grateful Dead have gotten back to together as The Other Ones and The Dead many, many times since Jerry died. I have seen many GD shows, I don’t know too many I met along the way that would ever think Jerry would be uspset that his brothers in music continued on in some form that kept the memory of the GD fresh. Lastly, while Jerry was, by far the largest icon of the GD he was not “The GD” What happened was an act of chemisty over time, not one person’s creation, not was it owned by one person. They were a great band whose front man was a great man.

    Most deadheads are happy whenever the other members of the Dead unite and keep the spirit of the music alive. You don’t seem to be very informed about the Grateful Dead. Oh’re entitled to your opinion. Your grandma sounds like a cool person.

    Kid, your grandma would so be at this gig. If she’s spinning, it’s in a way that’s got her hair and her flowerred dress flying out like a mushroom cap.
