    I remember when this one was on the radio way back in 1980 ...

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    I don't think anyone's really surprised that Jerry Garcia wasn't into VH. You can't please everyone. It's fine.

    Move along, these are not the droids we're looking for.

    my best friend in the 90's was the bass player in a band that did originals and a also covered a ton of GD tunes. I still don't know the names to a lot of the songs but they were always interesting and intricate... and not Friend of the Devil, Touch of Grey, etc.

    Jerry was an all-time great guitar player, musician, and song writer. It's funny because Jerry did shred a bit (in his own style of course) in the late 80s til he died during some solos/jams. Bob Weir started playing an Ibanez strat during this time too...which I still think is really odd for him
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Ummm, Jerry didn't die during some solos/ jams. He was in a drug treatment facility in 1995 when he passed.
    Just go for it!

    So the moral of the story is that dumb stoners have opinions too.

    Default Why Jerry Garcia wouldn't &quot;seriously&quot; listen to Eddie Van Halen

    The Grateful Dead is one of the shittiest bands ever.

    And I got no problem saying it. This is a Van Halen site. Jam music sucks ass.

    Add them to the list of bands that I donít get. At all.

    Default Why Jerry Garcia wouldn't &quot;seriously&quot; listen to Eddie Van Halen

    Garcia was just one of many elitist asshole musicians from the 60s who thought they were better than everyone else. Disseminating the BS idea that unless you held every note for 30 seconds, you werenít playing with feel. Anyone that doesnít hear feel and emotion in Eddie Van Halenís playing is a fucking moron. And Ed had more swing in his playing than Garcia could ever dream of having.
