Hey, does anyone remember the band Living Earth? Are any of their members on the board? I was just thinking about them because they were the first Dead cover band I saw. It was (I think) in the summer of '88 in DC. Loved their show but haven't heard anything about them in years. I don't suppose they're still around...

Yes, , saw them in Philly around '85 I would say, really great sound, in fact my band opened for them once in binghamton, now that I think about it around '92 :lol:
The guitarist is in Boris Garcia... I think

Yes Rob the guitarist is currently in Boris Garcia.

Back in the 80's we used to go to the Ambler, Chestnut, and Ardmore Caberets along with the Empire Rock Club in NE Philly, the Casa Conti in Glenside, and other places that Living Earth would play. I would love to see a reunion, they were smokin' back "in the day". A very talented band indeed.

So who else remembers Timberwolf, a GD cover band I used to see in the New York City area in 1975, 1976? That was the first cover band I remember seeing.
