anyone here think things could have turned around?

My last shows as well. As I recall, they seemed like a band that should be playing in a bandshell for some civic event... I dunno, just my impression. Light music, not to intense, kinda singsongy with Vince's lame shit. Even the Shakedown and Box O' were tame compareed to earlier versions - as if done by rote. And the Samba and even the Rain just were embarassing.wisedyes wrote:The two shows in DC in 1995, just before the end. By 1991 I was having a really hard time getting into it - they just weren't very good at that point. Plus, I never much cared for the Vinny sound or his playing style. At least Bruce Hornsby was there and those two shows were better than the usual for the time.
To be fair, they needed to take some extended time off BAD. Jerry needed to either get well, or make the decision to move on to other things that held his interest better. He was obviously done being interested in the Dead at the time. And none of that was ever going to happen being on the road all the time.
