Grateful Dead - Boston, MA - 1991-09-26

Grateful Dead, Boston Garden, Boston, MA, September 26, 1991.

Yahoooooo! What a show! What a night! The old Boston Garden! And a peak show of the Hornsby era...all of the spark and playfulness he brought to the band.

I kind of lost the love after Hornsby left, though the fall '93 tour had its moments. It was really sad to watch them peter out, especially after the resurgence of '87-'91. In retrospect, ploughing on after Brent's death seems not only insensitive, but damaging to them psychically.

Let's leave on the high note, though...after this show me and my buddy Steve drank a case of beer and built a tower with the cans in the hotel's elevator. Ha.
