Wednesday August 9, 1995

Ten years ago today Jerry Garcia died. I will always remember that day. My friend and I were on our way back to Vegas from Bryce Canyon when we found out. Imagine driving in the desert late at night listening to the Dead on the radio. As you crest over hill and look down into the Las Vegas Valley which is all lit up like a hooker’s Christmas tree the DJ announces that Jerry Garcia had died. It was a moment, really. We had just seen their last show in Vegas on May 21st. It was a very strange trip indeed.

I remember this, too. Stephen was with us as well.
