That "Emporer's New Clothes" Post below has gotten my hackles up...lissen - I'm a firm believer of stirring up the old on-line fan-boy-types for years now, but that Phil Lesh Sucks crack from the Web Master (or whatever their calling the main geek these days) is patently bullshit right on the face of it. I've loved the Dead, I've hated the Dead, and I've been indifferent to them as well. I've spent as much, if not more time listening to the MC5, the Stooges (yes, I know the Roxster brought up Detroit...and into NYC), Patti Smith, The Clash, The Ramones, The Dolls....as well as various and sundry folks: Parliament Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman....the point being, Phil Lesh and Friends are the best live line up I've heard in one hell of a long time - the last twenty years of Grateful Dead shows included (and I've recently been given a copy of last summer's Hartford  show to prove it - to me. amyway)....Patti Smith Group is the the only other recent mind-blowing amazing act I've been lucky enough to see....


Also, Mission Control - your slavish devotion to, and (to my mind) condescendingly blindered "You should be happy we're even doing this for you" attitude toward this whole little fan-club thingy is really a sort of turn off to me. I've been hesitating on joining up - ordinarily, I'd jump on such a venture - but the whole way the thing has been presented has really kind of been unattractive to me...


May have an extra ticket for tomorrow night....third row balcony. Too early to tell, but if I do, I'll be out front during the opening act - no scalping, naturally - face value or below...


Anyway, sorry 'bout the grousing, but that post just rubbed me the wrong way....God Damnit....
