It is my least favorite Dead song, but I'd rather listen to it than ANY Boston, Foreigner, Styxx etc. song.
Simply the musicianship in it makes most all other bands pale in comparison.
But saying "I can't stand it" wouldn't be accurate. Jerry play's guitar in it....now how bad could that really be?
Even a bad song can sound good if the right musicians are playing it....
I just finished watching a great documentary on Yes, one of other favorite bands.....in fact before I got into the Dead, I was completely submerged in Yes World. That's a band who went through so many personnel changes. For me, Yes was, is, and always will be Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe & Rick Wakeman (my ear's not that good on drummers, sorry, either Alan or Bill are just fine for me).
The point is......I was just thinking that very same thing as I listened to some of "other" Yes stuff.......bad Yes is better than good Motley Crue.
For Peggy-O. I get it.....It was one of those songs they seemed to play every time I saw them. But I do like the song.
For me, it's Victim, Picasso Moon, Don't Ease.
