    Let's have a list of songs which salute the sadly missed leader of the Dead.

    Here's Kula Shaker saluting the Grateful Dead and then launching into their salute to Jerry.

    "Rosebud" by Ryan Adams is about Jerry's guitar....that's close.

    Patchwork Quilt by Warren Haynes.

    Down the Road, Mickey Hart/Robert Hunter

    I love this verse:
    From the corner of my eye I saw the sun explode
    I didn't look directly 'cause it would have burned my soul
    When the smoke and thunder cleared enough to look around
    I heard a sweet guitar lick, an old familiar sound
    I heard a laugh I recognised come rolling from the earth
    Saw it rise into the skies like lightning giving birth
    It sounded like Garcia but I couldn't see the face
    Just the beard and the glasses and a smile on empty space


    20 years on, still miss Jerry a lot...:cry:

    That Kula Shaker song is one of my favorites.

    And Crispian Mills is a fanatastic guitarist BTW...

    Yeah, one of those forgotten greats of the nineties, I recently bought "K" again and have been blown away all over by that record. VERY underrated band.

    Didn't Ben & Jerry do a little ditty?
