Live Performances & Dead Rehearsals

by Uncle John

I am in the back room with Jerry Garcia and John Kahn and just a few people late one night after a show at Sophie’s, now the Keystone Palo Alto, when Jerry Garcia asks me to play him a song. I pick up the Gibson SG. “Don’t plug it in, just play,” Jerry says. Jerry must have known I wasn’t a musician, but I can string together some chords to play a song.

The way Bob Weir vocalizes his songs plays a tremendous influence on me learning how to sing. Donna Jean is an immense inspiration as she is the standard bearer of vocal greatness. I once sang in the same choir she sang in. The most loving influence a song can bear is a mother singing to her child and I had privilege one night to hear her sing Zion to sleep when he was a baby. It was sweet pure vocal love. The Grateful Dead always bring out the best, and as Bill Graham once said, “They’re the only ones who do what they do.”

I chose to sing “Mystery Rivers” for Jerry, about the Garcia River in California, the Weir River in Massachusetts. and the Tennessee River in Alabama.

Mystery Rivers

by Uncle John

1st verse; 1st chorus

When moondrops that come from remembering

 you looking into my eyes

When you come around again

 to sing like a bluebird flies

When I walk beside your footsteps

 that come from heaven by the sea

Playing on the promised guitar

 in the back hills under the trees

Like the wedding in the river

 and love that it brings

Telepathy on the ridge and bridge

and the light in your eyes when you sing

 

Somwhere in Mendocino county

Where a mystery river flows

There grows

An ancient mushroom that knows

Where the wind goes

Bob Weir asks me for a song. “Did you bring your best?” he asks, and I tap over my heart and pull out one, of a collection of twenty-two poems I wrote in a book as songs, from my inside left coat pocket, and give him “Twenty-two Roses”.

It is Phil Lesh who opens the door for live karaoke and a chance to play with him onstage. Being onstage is a higher place than where the audience is, and a fun place to be, that’s communicable to a dancing audience. Songs fill the air!

"JerryOke"

Chris sings "Ramble On Rose". Some Grateful Dead cover bands get their lyrics from the internet, which are not always accurate. The most accurate version you will find of Robert Hunter's lyrics is in his book "A Box Of Rain". Chris sings all of Hunter's lyrics precisely here, with a radiosoundwave presentation you can listen to
