Well, yeah. But, for years the Dead made no money on their music. All their success came at the latter half of their trip.
What I meant was that the Dead never tried to sell me on any particular belief or way of life. In that way, I think there was/is an obvious difference between the traveling Dead shows and these snake oil preachers.[/quote]
Sure, of course. But it’s snot like a lot of people following the Dead didn’t take it upon themselves to preach: the veggies, the vegans, the antiwar crowd in particular. Seems to me they were just making money hawking bumper stickers.
Me? One in ten thousand.
Go to the show. Park. Walk around and see the freaks. Buy some cool nick knacks and food. Meet some strangers. Go on inside the show. Find your seats. Talk the the folks around, about where youve been and what youve seen. Then the lights go down and some guy is talking about god, some folks starting singing, and people start interacting with the show. Sounds like a hoot in my book.
I’d love to go to an honest ta god old timer revival meeting!
I’m just glad the Dead didnt show up at my doorstep, asking for more moeny after the show was over. lol
But Dead TV on Sunday? Hell yeah!
