Clearly this is a prime example of Grateful Dead fan fiction.
According to Stylus magazine:"For the uninitiated, fan fiction is genre of writing popular on the internet where already existing characters (usually from science fiction TV shows) are used in original storylines and settings, usually involving lots of poorly written gay sex. ...Fan fiction writers are usually typified as being only slightly above furries when it comes to the dregs of the internet, as they pour out the emotions that they keep so tightly hidden in the midst of their psyche onto the blank canvas that is their favourite TV show, movie, or, in (some) cases, band. You could argue we all, as music fans, do this: after all, haven’t we all been convinced at one point or another that a certain troubadour is “singing my life with his words”? It’s a fair argument, but one that gets undermined by the simple fact that the majority of us don’t write incest fan fictions about Good Charlotte, (or the Grateful Dead) so we win."
...also, "Fan fiction writers as a rule tend to be fag-haggish, badly made-up girls in their mid teens" ...so take it easy on the poor kid!
"There, in huge black letters, was 'The Grateful Dead'. It just... cancelled my mind out."-Garcia
