THE BEGINNING OF AN ERA, BRENT IS THE PINNACLE OF DEAD CREATIVE ACHIEVEMENT
-


yeah but Brent was not in the band when this show occurred...Keith was still playing keyboards and would continue to play keyboards until Keith and Donna's last show on 2/17/79...Brent's first show was on 4/22/79!!

whoa, good call jim. and brent-lover, everybody knows the best shows the dead ever did was during the ones i was at, in '86 and '95
-PIRATE/COWBOY


The "best" shows the Dead ever played are SUBJECTIVE....just as Jerry said.....you never know how each night will be perceived.....each night is the "BEST" in it's own way!
BTW- OG Grateful Dead from 65-72 is the BEST!
LMAO!

I love primal dead, the beginning of them really getting into some good jamming and finding themselves. But I like the Brent years the best, I am not a touchhead I just prefer a band where the keys player can actually play the keys with some smokin solos. Brent brought so much to the band, sure some of the MIDI stuff was cheesy but the dead always said they never were to be taken that seriously anyways :)

-Not Primal Dead (02/19/2011)


Kieth showed in '74 why the boys asked him to replace PigPen in the first place. He just got to fucked in the head by the drugs and the fame. Weather or not people believe it was the right decision is irelevant, it was the decision that was made. And anyone who complains and says that brent never should have been in the dead has either a really selfish view of the music these guys made or you just need to complain about whatever is in front of you to make you feel better. I don't really care either way, cause most of you who complain about brent probably still payed to continue seeing shows, which makes you more of an idiot. Brent saved the band from imploding and by this time, kieth was fuckin up more jams then he was helping.

You can't change history, you can only deal with it. And complaining about something you have no control over means you just don't have the balls to man up and enjoy what you can get. Too bad, since you can't see far enough past your own ego to understand what this band was really about.

Keith first played with the dead in 71 not 74 and they asked him to join because pigpen was dyinf of from liver problems and was weak and couldnt perform. if it wasnt for that pig wouldve still been with them til the end.
