You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home

I remember when the Dead scene was small and fun. You could tour with the band and it was a small friendly scene. It was all about the music and fun times. The Dead scene eventually got too big and crowded. They were the biggest money making touring band for several years.

Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

"Touch of Grey" was the beginning of the end! It wasn't long before the (_o_) started causing problems. Bums spent all of their $$$ on tickets and dope in 1987. Then they demanded free meals at the St. Francis Soup Kitchen. The Grateful Dead were banned at Laguna Seca after these idiots caused problems with the Army in 1988. No more shows at the Kaiser, Greek, Frost or Irvine Meadows after 1989.

Meth dealers crashed the parking lot scene in the 90s. The police started cracking down on everybody else too. Shows became shorter and shorter. I stopped going in 1994; because Jerry Garcia looked half dead on stage. I'm glad it's over. The Grateful Dead couldn't survive in this sh-tty climate...

Let it be known,
there is a fountain,
that was not made by the hands of men.

Unfortunately the evil strawberry farmers used it to irrigate their farm land and that fountain now has salt water intrusion. We may get lucky, though, because The rain is gonna come, oh, it surely looks like rain
