Very nice, very nice. I always dug this video - one of the best of assembled dead footage - edited really well. If from Justin Kreutzman then he indeed has a very good eye.

Rock on Brent wherever you are -

Wish I could have seen him. Happy Birthday, Brent!

It is indeed JK's video and it was part of the VHS Backstage Pass video

I took a break from work to check out the video. It made me happy and sad at the same time. Happy because my prime years seeing the band were during Brent's joining the band, which re-energized them after the end of the Keith & Donna era. The band suffered through Jerry's health troubles in the mid 80's but came out strong after his recovery. When Brent died the band seemed to begin to slow down and lose energy. Although there were some great shows post-Brent, I don't think they ever fully recovered from his passing.

Here's to you Brent, thanks for the good times.

May you be at peace wherever you are.

From what I've read, Garcia was very fond of Brent and always regretted his inability to convey the importance of an intellectual life to help deal with the vicissitudes we all face in life. It's fairly clear we was a tormented person whose death was a tragic waste.

I think it was a Rolling Stone interview in which Jerry acknowledged the difficulty in carrying on without Brent, referring to him as a key member of band, which of course he was, though a few of his tunes are not exactly my favorites.

Would still be younger than 60 now . . .
First show: Spectrum, Philly 4-25-83
