I found this website and I want to share it with you to see what you think. Here's the web address: http//starling.rinet.ru/music write it in just as you see it. Go to the main page and find the Grateful Dead music review. Who ever wrote this crap definately is NOT a Deadhead or even a Dead fan. He totally bashes every Dead album ever made. And to make things worse he has to make a ton of lame comments. Just read the reviews and then you'll understand why I feel like E-mailing him to tell him what he should do with his reviews.

I wouldn't. There is no shortage of haters all over the web- you'd have to make a fulltime occupation out of responding to every single one. Does it make you enjoy this awesome music any less that some poor fool out there just doesn't get it?

One less person to fight with to get tickets is how I always looked at it.

Clearly this person has not "experienced" the GD. There are plenty of folks who just don't get it. No big deal. All I can say is "man, if you only knew what you were missing!"

i've always dug the fact that we're in the minority here. who wants to listen to the band that everyone and their mother thinks is the greatest?? (unless its the beatles!)

....and the fact that not as many people are into the dead helps forge more of a community, in my opinion. when you meet another head it seems like you can hit it off on some level 90% of the time. thats a pretty cool thing.
