This book is a timeline of my adventures following the Grateful Dead on tour in the 80's. Take the journey with me as I travel across the country to see shows with my friends and tape the concerts along the way. I begin with the legendary concert in Englishtown, New Jersey in 1977 and take you with me to every show that I went to and provide my personal perspective of the scene as it "exploded" as their late 80's hit, Touch of Grey took off. I also share my personal band member encounters I had over the ten year period. Join me.

Grateful Memories; Ten Years on the Road Taping the Dead has been a labor of love for me. It has taken 8 years from concept to publish. Finding my ticket stubs stashed away in a photo album gave me the inspiration to tell the story, as I held each ticket in my hands again. With a lot of help from a few close friends and the incredible land of internet surf, I was able to piece my story together slow but sure. Enjoy the ride as I did. Below is Bob's van. Our ride.
