Scarlet Fire


I am a deadhead of long standing but don't take it all too seriously. Many of my pals don't really like them and that is okay too. It is an acquired taste to be sure. I certainly enjoyed them. They carved a playground in a chunk of space and called it their own.

This show is from 1977, in my and many other deadheads opinion their greatest year performing. Definitely my most fun year for seeing the band and having a good time. This show is from Cornell and many think this was the best show ever. It was good but I have others I  preferred. Then again I wasn't there.

I was looking for deadhead jokes this morning and found a couple sites chock full of them. 

I even saw a few new ones I thought were pretty funny like the fourth one here. But perhaps you had to be there.

Q: Why does the Grateful Dead have two drummers? 
A: In case one of them falls asleep.

Q: How can you tell if Deadheads have been in your house?
A: They're still there!


Q: How many Deadheads does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: None. Deadheads screw in dirty sleeping bags.


Q: Why do deadheads swirl their arms when they dance?
A: To keep the music out of their eyes. 


Q: What did one deadhead say to the other, when they ran out of weed?
A: This music sucks.

  • A deadhead dies and goes to heaven. St. Peter's giving him a tour, and dude's awestruck. "Wow! Is that Janis over there? Holy crap! There's Jimi! Fuck, man! Morrison looks great!" Then he sees this bearded, grey-haired man off by himself. "Dude, is that Jerry? I didn't know he died!" St. Pete says, "No, that's God. He just thinks he's Jerry."
Q:What did Mike Tyson say to Jerry Garcia as he was leaving his house? A: Althea later!

Q:What did the hippie say when you told him to get out of your apartment? A: Namaste.

Q:How many deadheads does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: None- they just wait 15 years for it to burnout and then follow it around.

Q:How many deadheads does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: Only one, they have enough acid to spin the room.

Q:How many dead heads can fit in a van?

A: Just one more and my dog, man...

Garcia and Clapton were on a safari and got sidetracked and captured by some natives who were going to kill them. "Any last requests?" they were asked and Garcia speaks up and says, "Yes, get me a guitar and just one last time, I want to play the long version of Truckin."
They look at Clapton and he says: "Kill me first!"
