p.s. I used to cook for them (I'm a chef).

I think it's cool that you wish to correct me, it just shows how much you younger fans enjoy them. It's all good. Make sure you continue seeing them with Furthur~
Don't want to hijack this into a Dead thread but... I never saw a west coast show but the band has said that the east coast shows were a lot more energy, we didn't get to see them as much as the Bay Area folks did so it was always a charged atmosphere.

First show was Binghamton '77 and I think the best was at the Spectrum in May '78. I don't really go to concerts any more, prefer local music generally but who knows. Maybe I'll catch them in Boston one of these days.
