"The show must go on" attitude is the Deadstein credo.  This was a week that Terez, Coffee-Bro and Trister were scheduled to be gone so it was only to be Kevin, Rich and I to be in Smash Studio J.  We were in search of a drummer and Coffee-Boy who understood our plight hooked us up with his old Bayside buddy Russ to play drums for us.  In addition, Alan Deutch (sp?) from 2 weeks ago also answered the call to help us out on guitar.  He had this cool Fano custom guitar he was trying out for the first time.  There is nothing like the Smash Fender Twin electric jolt to get you going through the night and he was going.  Finally, Rich broke his leg in 3 spots so he was out of commission.  So it was the four of us, 2 Deadstein guys and 2 Bayside guys with nothing guiding us but the ghosts of the Grateful Dead.  That was all we needed because for the most part the music was fun, on-going and a rewarding experience.  I got the sense that the Bayside guys felt the same way.  Fitting into the Deadstein groove in all ways without a flinch.  To them we were from the other side of the Bizarro world and they were the same to us.  Finally by the end of the night their jamming buddy Jayson also joined us for a song or two on guitar as well as helping out to sing a few.

Kev and I met for some Fresco Taco before the jam and despite the proximity to Christmas, there was little traffic.  In the world, Saddam Hussein was apprehended in his spider hole this week and the world seems like a safer place despite going to homeland security level orange.  Watch us get nuked tomorrow while I am vomiting while eating my words.  Let's hope not because 2004 may have many more surprises and adventures in it much like 2003.  Happy Chanukah to all for the few days left  We were only supposed to jam a few time times, but the miracle is that is that between October 1990 and today we have played over 500 times.   That is more than a year if you think about it.  More than I have seen Deadshows.  Deadstein is a revival/survival act.

I love the poster for the night. Kevin's kids are freakier than he is. Keep up the good work, I like it.

This was jam #50 for the year with #51 scheduled for next Tuesday. Pretty impressive stuff. With all this playing you would figure Kevin would have Big Railroad Blues memorized by now.

It is pretty impressive. If I could only remember that. CoffeeBro out of state, Trister standing on principle, MiniT standing on whatever she can find and Brotpen unable to stand, cast a dark shadow on Deadstein this week. But, Deadstein does not recognize the known laws of the universe, thus, we illuminated the darkness with the light of Freak. It was blinding. Literally. At times it was hard to see across the room for the haze of politeness was dense and bright. The Bayside Boys were prepared for the experience and reflected the light of Freak back into Deadstein with focus and true joy. It was good. It is what Deadstein is all about. It is why Deadstein can not be stopped. It is why we love Deadstein. Long Live Deadstein. With that, I would like to thank all who help to keep Deadstein rolling. Thanks Freaks.

It was fun playin' with you guys...always a treat. Larry is a maniac. He knows every note, chord, word and nuance of every song. The was a moment in Terrapin when Jay started spontaneously clapping. I'll have what he's having...BIG shoutout to Brotman. I hope you recover quickly and you sit for keyboards anyway!!! Hurry!!! Best to Kevin and "CoffeeBro?" AD

It rings so true that Deadstein is greater than the sum of it's parts and the Music is greater than all of us. I'm in a few more parts than I should be, but the fine folks at St Vincent's Hospital patched my bones and as soon as I can get an appointment with the doctor who did that I'll know how and when I can rejoin the fray. So far so good but a bit sore. Thanks to Alan D and Russ for answering the call. Studio R is booked for next Tuesday 12/30. Deadstein is also booked for Monday January 5, 2004 in Studio A, if it's finished and R if it's not. I'll let y'all know how it's goin on my end soon as I know. Happy New Year to everybody.
