So there I am once again watching the Grateful Dead Movie (if you haven't done so, buy the DVD) and I started wondering "does anyone know what happened to any of the heads who ended up in the film?" - For example, what ever happened to the guy complaining about being exploited in the Beer Line? Or the that guy (you know the one) with the smile singing US Blues?
My favorite though is the cowboy head two steppin' to Sugar Magnolia?

"I'm just trying to get my space together so I can go into the show!"

What happened to them?

It's funny that you mention that, cause I think the same thing. In fact, if you google around, you'll find information about the exploited guy (Mark, I believe is his real name) and the other two guys (but not much). I had actually planned to go through and take screenshots of all the "characters" and post them online somewhere and try and get people to help identify them. It's on my ever growing list to do.

That must be some list Jack. Maybe you should have a tv show like Earl on "My name is Earl". Love that goofy ass show.

My Name is Earl is one of the greatest shows I have ever seen...I love watching that and The Office. Back on track, thats quite a task to accomplish but would it would be very interesting to see what happened to those people.
