Yeah, I found out late today. He was only 70. At least he died peacefully in his sleep, which ain’t a bad way to go.

Another man's done gone

 

Circle songs and sands of time

And seasons will end in tumbled rhyme

And little change, the wind and rain

Definitely had a rough last couple of years. Was a very interesting, smart guy. Glad he was able to put up with Weir and write some great tunes.

Definitely not a good way to start a new thread...

The black-throated wind keeps on pouring in.

And it speaks of a life that passes like dew.

So I give you my eyes, and all of their lies
Please help them to learn as well as to see
Capture a glance and make it a dance
Of looking at you looking at me

What a great song. I woke up with this line in my head this morning and can't shake it:
 

Passing me by

The buses and semis

Plunging like stones from a slingshot on Mars

Nice radio show from last night. McNally tells a nice story of Barlow working as the Dead's tour manager for the June '80 tour.

Mourning @jpbarlow. His "Principles of Adult Behavior," written on Oct. 3, 1977 when he turned 30 (an age he never expected to reach), are as wise a guide to life as I know. Thanks, John.

Parrish tells some nice stories about Barlow on the above radio show, too. I guess Barlow and John Kennedy were friends. Of all the people in the GD cirlce - I think Barlow has to be the most known and influential outside the Dead circle. 

Crazy that him and Weir got hooked up in their youth.

A cowboy turned Harvard dropout turned India vagabond turned Millbrook resident with Leary turned coke dealer turned Grateful Dead lyricist turned political activist (and Cheney supporter) turned internet pioneer. The guy did alright.

According to the below he managed Cheney's first electoral campaign. Crazy -- guessing they shared the same libertarian/anti-big goverment beliefs. 

 

Didn't know he was inolved with Burning Man, too.

Regarding 9.11.73 -- I have never been a huge fan of Weather Report Suite and think the horns added much to the 9/11/17 version. Nice Dark Start, too --- the Phil outro into Morning Dew is great.

 

Always nice to hear a Let Me Sing Your Blues Away - dig the horns on that one, too.

 

Speaking of Doug Sahm - saw that there is a doc. on Netflix or Amazon - need to check that out. I know very little about him, actually nothing, except the Tupelo cover.

I think Jerry is mentioned in the documentary a few times. He had some great songs - mostly the early stuff.

Speaking of docs. - yesterday I watched Orange Sunshine: the story of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love on Amazon Prime -- nice flick. Some Dead references, throughout.

 

Man they made alot of LSD.
