    I saw that too. It’s true. It was 1993 and I believe he was listed as one of the "most irriesistable gungers of ’93" or something like that. He was third behind Evan Dando and someone else. Pretty cool.

    We have heard that show "I love the 90’s’ being pushed on the radio here. Last September we saw "I love the 70’s and 80’s" in a hotel room. We had fun watching them.

    Last night I got to see 60 minutes. My husband has had a little J disatisfaction for several years now and I have had a Jerry Garcia problem. I think after many years we are both starting to come around. Back to the point, I saw a show on the Grateful Dead last night on 60 minutes and I was surprised how much J and Jerry remind me of each other, the exception that Jerry is dead.The other members were talking about how he had no interest in pushing or promoting himself. He enjoyed playing music and getting paid for it. He really did not care how his albums sold as long as he made money touring. When business consultants were brought in he never followed their advise. One major suggestion was to get rid of tapers because the consultants believed that they were hurting album sales. Instead of removing them he gave them their own section. Both J and Jerry are fire signs and they seem (like me husband) to have a passion for music but not a whole lot of interest in making tons of money. I could be wrong I don’t know J personally but my husband did work with Jerry selling his artwork so I got the idea that he was like most fire signs, directorial but fairly laid back about it.

    i’ve heard (well, read) j complaining about not shifting enough units, but i’m not sure that really counts. :aliensmile:

    Is shifting units selling albums? I should clarify, fire signs certainly have interest in making tons money it just, most often but not always, seems to be low on their list of "Things to do" Oh, I have 2 Aries brother-in-laws they are twins and both cared nothing about making lots of money until they met the women of their dreams, both women have pushed those boys to work it hard and keep the bling-bling flowing. Some women can do this for men but unfortunatly I am not one of them, money just seems to come and I don’t get uptight about it. I am looking into your chart btw, rambleon. My children are going back to school in 3 weeks, :shock: , :D , We had a really great homeschool year but the whole time I kept wondering if I couldn’t pay someone to teach them, so I put them back in Catholic school and we are doing the run around getting things ready.

    I saw that. Liz Phair gave them all titles and he was the "dirty, mumbling alternative rocker of 1993."

    Yeah, they were all "dirty" alternative rockers, for some reason.
