Happy Fourth Of July

Hey Now all you Deadheads. I'm just thinking about all those great shows on or around July 4th that I went to. Nothing like a Grateful Dead Concert to ring in the summer. In particular 7/4/86 Rich Stadium, Orchard Park (Buffalo), NY with Bob Dylan and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, 7/4/87 Sullivan Stadium (Boo Patriots) Foxboro, Mass with Bob Dylan, and 7/2,3/88 Oxford Plains, Maine (too many whipits man). Wow what shows! That Buffalo show was my first time seeing Dylan, as well as my first significant Road Trip (7 Hours facing backwards in a station wagon with six other people and a sign on the back that said "Nomads Of The Deep"). The Dead opened the show with a mammoth set and Dylan and Tom Petty followed. Dylan really wowed me. But it wasn't until the following year that I caught the Dead/Dylan combo shows that I really was sold on Bob Dylan. I've probably seen him close to every year once or twice since then. What a writer and performer. There really hasn't been anything like that combo since then. Imagine....Jerry Garcia AND Dylan on the same stage. What Shows...
Summer time does come and go my oh my!
