I really don't think that by touring together again, Bobby, Phil, or anybody thought they were bringing anything back as far as "Jerry" Dead. I think that was more an idea that heads had adopted than what the boys intended. Anyone who went to TOO or The Dead expecting to be flashed back to the good ole days was obviously mistaken and probably disappointed. I had a great time seeing them at the Alpine Valley "Terrapin Station" event. There were obviously many different guesses as to how it would sound. Despite some sound problems and other factors, there were some magical moments. I personally enjoyed hearing songs I never thought would see the light of day again like "Born Cross-Eyed". Plus, the first night was my fiance's b-day and we got to hang out for hours with Vince Welnick at the campground the night before that. It was a good time all in all. For sure, Phil and Bobby are definitely happier doing their own things. And yes the Grateful Dead are gone. Would I love to see another get together? Absolutely. I'm grateful for what I've seen and heard, though. I know all you folks are. Love that Dead!!!
