I Am Not A Smart Man

by thoughtsonthedead

So, after the stream for the Albany show went off, I automatically hit Play on my dashboard, where 6/28/88 from Saratoga* is cued up, and then my attention wandered and I forgot that the Dead & Company set was over.

“Man,” I thought to myself, “John Mayer sounds EXACTLY like Garcia on Victim. Huh.”

And then Foolish Heart started and Garcia’s vocals kicked in and I may have had a small stroke. What does it mean when your left side doesn’t work and all you can smell is almonds?

*It’s fine. It’s an ’88, and that was an up-and-down year, and this is an up-and-down show. This show is exactly what you think it is.
