The Grateful Dead were very kind. It was Santa Claus. It did good things. It allowed other people to benefit. The benefits that we played were enormous, and we played free. So you've got a band that loves to play free, and that was a wonderful thing.

“Someone has to do something. It seems incredible — in fact, it seems pathetic — that it has to be us... We’ve never really called on our fans, the Deadheads, to align themselves one way or another as far as any particular cause is concerned because of a basic paranoia about leading somewhere, when we don’t want to be the leaders. But, this we feel is an issue that is strong enough and life-threatening enough. Inside the world of human games — where people regularly torture each other and overthrow countries and there is a lot of murder and hate — there’s the larger question of global survival. We want to see the world survive to play those games, even if they are atrocious.”

~ Jerry Garcia (discussing GD rainforest benefit concert)

To be human is to have a collection of memories that tells you who you are and how you got there.

Sometimes it's a huge amble, where you're just on top, on the lid, and it's not going anywhere, and sometimes you walk on the stage and from the first note, the afterburner kicks in and you can't stop it.

Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been.

Some songs are just like tattoos for your brain, you hear them and they're affixed to you.
