Wal-Mart strikes back Today, Wal-Mart took out full page ads in Newspapers across the country. They're just sick of being picked on. Poor little guys. Maybe we should be nicer to them.
Grateful Dead vs Joni Mitchell Okay,not really...just file this under free music for all the deadhead/Joni fans... A different "Me and My Uncle" Deadheads know Me and My Uncle as the Grateful Dead's most-played song. It usually came in the first set, and was usually followed by Big River. It was written by John Phillips, first played by the Dead in 1966, and then played more than 600 times over the next thirty years. As you can see from the lyrics, it's your basic manly western song of gambling, drinking, and killing. What most people don't know it that it was sung a year earlier by Joni Mitchell. She was going by the name "Joan Anderson" at the time, and sang it on the CBC television show "Let's Sing Out" on October 4, 1965. The combo of the sweet voice and the macho lyrics is wonderful.

Jerry Garcia - great musician AND music instructor. I love reading new stories about people I've heard so much about before. It's the hidden stuff that lies beneath the overt image that fascinates me. For anyone who loves the Grateful Dead this is a neat look back at a time before anyone knew who the Grateful Dead were, when the band members themselves had no idea what they would become.
