Weir & PigPen....

Did I actually not know that Weir and PigPen were once kicked out of the band, or had I just forgotten ?

I didn't know that. When was that?

sugarmag- Hey there!
I'll have to go back and look in the book. I'm reading Blair Jackson's"Garcia:An American Life", and he mentions it. They weren't kicked out for very long, but they apparently were kicked out momentarily.

Hey Paticus...that sounds interesting, I'll have to find that book-sounds like a good read. Do I know you from another forum? Just wondering.

It's pretty good. it kinda glosses over Brent a little bit, which I thought was unfortunate, but overall, i think it's pretty good, and while I doubt it reveals EVERYTHING, it doesn't feel terribly sugarcoated either.
I comment sometimes over at Zoooma's but i don't think i know you from anywhere other than there.

Loves me some Dead reading material, and thanks so much for the book info/tip!

Thankful Paul said...

They were fired around the time they
were recording Aoxomoxoa, but they
didn't leave. They kept showing up.
Everybody forgot that they were fired.
