Unbroken Chain of You and Me

When you don't hear anything, you imagine all sorts of things. I find little more frustrating than that silence. Your mind reels. You feel lost, grasping for answers. You listen, gathering thoughts, ideas. You look for comfort and extend what you can, reaching out to your brothers for some peace. Sometimes you just vent. Mostly you just cry. Then, you get word.
Thank you Phil.
You remember - We will not forget.
Thank you to The Dead community for always being there.

I read in Boing Boing that internet archive is going to put back dead music in their site.

How about some GOOD news from the front lines. Tonight we went to see our new friend Trey Anastasio at the Warfield Theater here in San Francisco. Walking in I noticed a dressing room with Mickey & Billy written on the door. How nice I thought, they even gave us a room to hang out in. But they had other plans up their sleeves. Trey asked Dad and Mickey Hart if they'd sit in with his band. After they couldn't talk their way out of it Dad and Mick decided it would be fun. Using Trey's iPod to teach the other guys in his band Grateful Dead tunes they decided on what to play.

After Trey's amazing band played for an hour he did a short acoustic set. Out of that Dad and Mickey joined Trey's band for great versions of Iko Iko, Going Down The Road Feeling Bad, Eyes Of The World and Casey Jones. The audience really seemed to have a good time. So did the band. Dad was raving about it on the drive home.
Trey, Dad and Mike Gordon from Phish are playing a show together in couple weeks. Dad's excited to play as a trio with two guys that are that good!
