The whole enchilada:
Phil's Nudie suit was supposed to be in the Ramrod auction but was withdrawn. Haven't found a pic of that.
Yeah...I had a feeling this would go to the Nudie suits when I posted asking about the guitar, but it was the only pic I could find at the time. Over the top, yes, but I think they were pretty cool too....especially Jerry's jacket. Can you imagine what that is worth now?brbadg wrote:LMAO!!!!! Great thread !
I think coat could be the reason behind huge success..There are different opinions about itpablomago wrote:A lot of lap steels had numbered markers on the fretboard. (My '47 National, for one) I think Dan was going for that kind of thing.
One time I saw the Dead at Winterland in the Nudie suits (except Phil) and the Rowan Brothers opened. They had coats with little led lights that flashed on and off all over them. When they came out onstage, the stage lights were off and all you'd see was the flashing lights. Most of the people I knew at the time thought it was cheesey (and felt the same thing about the Nudie suits) and I often wondered if the Rowans might have been more successful if they hadn't worn those coats.
