As a Deadhead, I was very excited to see the Dead meet-up. As a documentary, I was pleasantly surprised. For the most part, the interviews were intriguing, with a few notable exceptions. The second and third interviews (of Garcia) were particularly interesting. The documentary also covered the post-MTV era of the band, which was the most interesting part of the documentary. It was at this time that the Dead started to struggle financially. The documentary focused mostly on how the band was able to take care of themselves financially during this time. I found the interviews very interesting, but I do have one criticism of this documentary. The documentary does not cover the reason the band broke up and the reason why the members of the band left. I found it interesting that there was no mention of the band being broke, but that the two primary reasons for the band's break-up were the possibility of one of the band members being unceremoniously fired and the possibility of the band not being able to pay their dues. It seemed to me that the main reason for the band's break-up was due to the failure of the band's touring schedule, which has been discussed in other interviews with Garcia and others. However, if the band was not able to tour at the time, it would have had a much different effect on the band, which could explain why they were unable to pay their dues. Another criticism of the documentary is that it does not mention the reason why the band broke up. I believe that it would have been beneficial to cover this aspect of the band's history. As a long-time Deadhead, I felt that the documentary did not give the Dead enough credit for the years they had. I think it would have been beneficial to address this aspect of the band's history. Overall, the documentary is a good documentary that should be viewed by any Deadhead.

I just saw the 2nd annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up on August 9th in Salt Lake City, Utah. I attended with my best friend, Jeff, who is a HUGE Dead Head. This is an extremely valuable documentary. It was filmed by the Dead's manager, Jerry Garcia, and his team of professional film makers. It chronicles the Dead's two tours in the mid-90's, the "Live Aid" concert, and the "Hollywood Bowl" concert. It was directed by Rick Sobule, who also directed the documentary "The Grateful Dead: 80 Years of Live at Hollywood Bowl". The film provides many fascinating interviews with people who are very much connected with the Dead. Jerry Garcia is interviewed by former Dead member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan. Garcia tells about the concerts and how they started. We also hear from the band's director, David Lemieux, who recalls some of the things that went on behind the scenes. We hear from Rick Sobule, who also made the documentary "The Grateful Dead: 80 Years of Live at Hollywood Bowl". Sobule tells of his family history with the Dead, and how the family moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles when Jerry died in 1990. Finally, we hear from the band's ex-composer, Rick Wakeman, who tells us about the musical side of the band and how they became the band they are today. I highly recommend this documentary for anyone who is a Dead Head or is interested in the band. It is very entertaining and it provides a very accurate portrayal of the band, and it makes a great companion piece to the other documentary that I mentioned earlier, "The Dead in Concert". I hope that you enjoy this film as much as I did.

Great documentary about the 60s Dead. It was a very interesting time for Deadheads and their love for the band. They have gone on to produce some of the most influential music in history. This documentary is filled with the great footage from a very unique time in their lives. It's also an absolute must for Deadheads and fans of the band. It's a great insight into the Dead's rise and fall, and it's also very insightful into the band's rise to fame and cult status. One of the most interesting things is that the band did not have any real managers at this time. Jerry Garcia was the band's "head" and this documentary focuses on the group's rise to fame and its struggle with the "mafia" and how the band tried to play the music they wanted to play. It also takes a look at the band's recent breakup and how the band got back together and what their future plans are. One of the highlights of this documentary is the music. Many of the performances are very powerful, and the band themselves seemed like they were in love with the music and were very proud of it. Some of the music they performed, like "Dire Wolf" and "Cassidy", are excellent examples of great music. The best part of this documentary is the interviews. It's interesting to hear the band talk about their personalities and their emotions. One of the highlights of this documentary is when the band first meet each other, and Jerry Garcia is asked about his life and the band, and he says that they were just a bunch of friends, and that they had no idea who they were. Jerry Garcia also talks about how it was a tough time for the band, and how the band had to deal with their past in the media and with people telling them to break up. I found this to be a very interesting and insightful documentary. It was also very enjoyable to see many of the Dead's former friends and fans in the documentary. They were very interesting, and it was great to see all of them and hear what they had to say about the band. The band is also interviewed by both old and new friends. This was really cool to hear from them. It was also nice to see footage from the band's upcoming concerts. Overall, I would highly recommend this documentary to fans of the Dead, Deadheads, or anyone that loves the band. I highly recommend this documentary for Deadheads and Deadheads only.

The Grateful Dead Meet-Up was a great concert and if you are a fan of the band this is definitely the best way to see them live. The Grateful Dead were in town to play two shows, one in Seattle and the other in San Francisco. They also played an incredible show in Austin, TX. My family and I went to the concert on May 10th, we had tickets for both shows and we both went with a friend. We saw the Dead from the audience. There were some great songs performed by the Dead and they really performed well. We were very impressed with the performance of "Loser" by the Dead. This was the best performance by the Dead since the Dead played "Great Balls Of Fire" in San Francisco in 1995. The Dead performed the song at the conclusion of the concert. The band even played the song during the "Truckin" performance. The Dead are very talented musicians and they have been at the top of their game for a long time. I think that the Grateful Dead are very special musicians and they are a rock band and I think that their music is great and that they deserve all the success that they have had. We would like to see the Grateful Dead in concert again and we are very excited about seeing them in San Francisco again. We will be in attendance at the shows again and we will be there to see the Dead. We can't wait to see them perform in the Bay Area again. This concert was an amazing experience and we were happy that we saw the Dead in person and we are looking forward to seeing them in San Francisco.
