Grateful Dead - KGO TV News (San Fransisco) June 1985 Video

Ron Pigpen McKernan

To mark the 20th anniversary of Grateful Dead, KGO TV ran a three-part series on it's local newscast. Lots of very familiar footage, some New Year's Eve '84, Chinese New Year '85, Frost Ampitheater '85 and on the final report some footage from earlier in the evening at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. Interview clips with Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Graham, David Gans and others. Early in this series they mention Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, while the shot is actually Phil Lesh from the famous film by Robert Nelson. June 1985

    I walk out the door in Boulder, Colorado to go see the twenieth anni shows in the summer of 1985 and didn't come home until the last note on July 9, 1995. Those were hardly my first shows but I decided then and there at the Greek Theater in Berkeley that I was not going to miss a show until the end, I held fairly true to my goal except the two and half year hiatus in prison for LSD. I was there in Chicago for the last note. A promise that I had made myself in 1986.

    @WEIR4EVER Should of been around in the beginning...but then u'd be my age...lol!

  3. WEIR4EVER says:

    @Jenscool i think that would still be worth it! ;-)

  4. WEIR4EVER says:

    @WaywardBill woaw i too saw them at the Greek a bunch... but your story brought tears to my eyes... bit about the last notes did it...
    I saw them first in Europe March 81... then in Barcelona in October of the same year, was the last show of tour, and i promised myself i would see the next show. So i crossed 'the big waters' ... I didn' come home to belgium until 2002. Lived in Marin, caught all i could in CA. Sorry u went to jail for L. That's scandalous in my book ;-)

    It's tough to get to record news multiple reports, even though in this one they announce that there will be more! I was lucky enough to have been at all of the shows depicted except in the 67 in the park!

    Not all Deadheads were hippies. Not that there's anything wrong with hippies. It's just that I wish all these new clips and documentaries would show that you didn't have to wear tie-die or grow dredlocks. In the end it came down to the music, the unbelievable jams.

    @grannygear

    I was 15 when I headed out one weekend on a mtn bike. Went to a local Park with streams/forests etc. I was solo, so it hit me more as the headphones filled my ears. As if it were narrating and I watched the park come alive - I kid you not. It was American Beauty and I don't care what anyone says about studio work. I can't say that the album changed my life, but it was about as comforting as one could imagine. It was just a big hug and good friend that day.
