Another coOn July 7, 1989, I saw a Grateful Dead concert at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Six days later, the building was condemned.

Does that mean that my attendance at GD concerts causes the venues to be condemned?

Less than a week after that concert, I attended another GD show at RFK Stadium in DC. It was not condemned.


I was at both those shows .... high as a kite ... I remember hearing how JFK stadium was condemned a few days later ...

did you ever see a picture of Mickey Hart at his Bar Mitzvah? It's in the Grateful Dead Family Album ... Mickey looks like he is from the planet Vulcan, even at 13.

after JG died, my wife and I went to Philadelphia that night and hung out in Liberty square. there were about 5,000 or so hippies milling around and trying to figure out what to do, as if we could do something to bring Jerry back.

during that time as we were wandering around the park, we noticed a young Jewish guy, kind of chubby, some prayers in Hebrew (yitgadol, vyitgodot shemay rahbaw), wearing a yarmulke, and also singing Grateful Dead songs.

Struck up a conversation with the guy who was probably 20 years younger than yours truly. It wasn't you Steven, was it?
