Towards making this site more interactive, we are soliciting and publishing essays from our readers.
Feel free to read through the previous comments first, and to respond to them as appropriate. Please, no flaming. Let's try and keep the discourse constructive and intelligent. Also, please do not embed HTML code in your comments. We would rather this did not have to be a moderated forum.
Please try to use paragraphs as large monolithic bodies of text are hard to read. Use two carriage returns to start each new paragraph. You might want to consider writing in your favorite text editor and then later copying and pasting it into the space provided below. (You may need to tab into the field to be able to paste.)
We will randomly select forum contributors to receive free copies of DeadBase, Jr. or its credit equivalent. To be eligile for the drawing essays must reasonable both in length (more than 25 words), and in content. Multiple entries from a single author which meet those criteria are acceptable as long as they are distinct -- each contribution will improve your odds. Winners will be notified by e-mail. We may also select some of these comments to include in a future edition of DeadBase.
Bob Weir has had an extensive solo career which continues to be prolific to this day. Through the sheer volume of his recent work, he is one of the driving forces keeping Grateful Dead's music alive.
We would like your comments and recollections on Bobby's solo performances. You are welcome to draw on both live experiences and on tapes. We particularly interested in the color from live experiences, and in realistic reviews on your favorite recordings. Selected responses may be published in a future issue of DeadBase. (Posted 9/6/99)
