When people ask me if I've ever been to Texas, I respond that no, I haven't, but I've been to Austin. And yes, a similar walk could be made in any big music city. Be it Nashville, Chicago, LA, NY, Boston, Austin, etc.
As for the Dead Head thing, count me out. I saw some 20 shows from '82-'85, so that's a pretty concentrated run, but I had a life to live and courses to pass at the time. I posted in the music forum about how I think I like about 25% of the Dead - consider, over a 30-year career:
About 30% of '69-'70
About 40% of '71
About 70% of '72
About 50% of '73-74.
About 30% of '77-'80
About 10% of '81-'89
0.1% of '90-'95
Add it all up and it's about 20-25% of overall output that I like, and I really love about half of that. But I really, really love that slim slice of pie so much that I rank the Dead very highly.
For what this is all worth, of course. What was the question?
Pogue, you aren't Angry Jack Straw, are you? :eek:
