    I think that the Dead wanted to sound like this



    and, of course, like this

    NICE! I love the Dead! I have forgotten more than most will ever know. Too bad I only have two Dead records.

    @mhardy6647 Thanks!

    Don't see the comparison at all? Have you really listened to the Climax Blues Band?

    @gudnoyez no comparison but there is a certain similar flavor on some stuff

    Listening to Tull now, no one sounds like Tull!

    I only know 2 Climax Blues Band songs. I blame The Grateful Dead for the continued existence of hippies. :s

    Alternatively, I have always thought that it would have been very cool for the Dead to have covered (are you ready for it?) Carole King's Smackwater Jack. :) To the best of my knowledge, though, they never did.

    Smackwater Jack, has a rhythm that evokes, to me, at any rate, that which I like to call the Grateful Dead lope.

    I mean that as a compliment to both Ms King & the Dead. :)

    I have always thought that Billy Joe Royal's song "Campfire Girls" sounded like The Grateful Dead.

    Sounds like a tailor-made vehicle for Pigpen. :)

    I would say "no, not even David Crosby" (FWIW)
    David Crosby pretty much sounds like -- David Crosby
    No matter whose liver he's usin'.

    I posted in this thread when it was new. Since then, I've never looked back. It's almost like living a dream.

    David Crosby - a man with no friends, thanks to his opinions.

    My tongue-in-cheek comment referring the DC's comment on "the no talent Ted Nugent".

    Crosby is an excellent example of what drugs will do to you.

    True, but my guess is he was and would have been effed up with or without the drugs.
