Was at that Giants Stadium show in 93. Did the tour through Shoreline. Remember them playing it through the tour. What a summer.

Some Easy Answers history. Lyrics By: Robert Hunter, Bob Weir Music By: Weir, Bralove, Wasserman, Welnick
Easy Answers was first performed by the Grateful Dead at Giant's Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ on Saturday, 6/5/93.
Rob Wasserman discusses the creation and recording of this song in the liner notes of the Trios album;
"The night before this session Bob Weir and I were rehearsing a song idea for our trio with Neil Young. As we were wrapping up he asked me if I wanted to hear another new tune he had been working on. The next day Neil, Bobby and I were sitting in Neil's ancient Cadillac listening to both songs, and we decided to record the newer one from the previous evening which, needless to say, became Easy Answers. Bobby recorded his lead vocal around midnight. Neil and I wouldn't let him do it over again as we both felt he had captured the true spirit of a preacher in his late night delivery. I remember thinking that the song must be pretty good when I saw Neil simultaneously washing dinner dishes at the studio sink and dancing non-stop while he listened to the playback. He commented that my vocal part sounded like a disinterested New Yorker on a street corner using a pay phone while singing the words 'easy answers'!

So Dave, you were probably at the show, what did you think about the chopping up of Music with cheesy Answers? Yea or no?
I'd like to find the proper potion
That's gonna capture your emotion

I have it as well, Kevman, and what’s also on there IIRC, is something with Edie Brickell & Jerry, and (again if I’m not mistaken) this lead to a conceptual project with Ms. Brickell and JG, whereby they were going to explore/develop an endeavor using music as an (at the very least) adjunctive therapeutic method to treat mental/emotional disorders, something the late Stevie Ray Vaughan was also interested in developing...I always wondered if all three of them SRV/EB/JG might’ve collaborated together, and what gifts/help such a partnership might’ve led to...

Remember, this was back in late 80’s, 1989/early 90’s, so it would’ve held some potential to perhaps have been pioneering “work”...Though alas, fate and procrastination had other notions...


Yes it does indeed make you wonder what might have been. Along a similar path I heard that Jimi Hendrix would've turned 75 this week. I've often wondered what kind of music/collaborations he would have made had he lived.
