    True, the Dead do have some pretty bad stuff. I’ve always thought of them as more of a country band though…maybe when you think of them like that alot of their material seems pretty different.

    damn-such negative vibes slagging other bands on a thread about favorite DINOSAUR moments…
    in the spirit of the season my favorite moment is when they were all in a room, looked at each other and said they could/would play together again.
    the force and beauty of those reunion shows this year made it a good one for me. especially amidst all the badness in the world :)

    when lou walked out onstage and came over and hugged me and my brother at the 2nd night of the middle east. i’ll certainly never forget that.

    Recently, at the second Irving Plaza show when J leaned his guitar against the stacks and let it feedback deeply and endlessly a la Motorhead. It wasn’t as loud as Motorhead, but it was definitely in the spirit.

    Mosdef. When I saw them in D.C. (w/o earplugs) I was legitimately in pain at times. It was awesome though.

    on the 22nd i saw them at the troubador i was up close to the stage near Lou and by the end of the night when they had come back for their encore he was madly drunk and was pushed into the crowd were he continued to yell into the mic and i got to sing with lou and touch him it was pretty insane i had a great time and it was my first time seeing dinosaur jr as well, so for me it was pretty memorable.

    I saw Dinosaur Jr in Seattle during the Without a Sound Tour. It was at a club and was pretty crowded. I was standing next to a chained off area above the crowd. This spot was choice as I had an unobstructed view to the stage (fairly close too). About a third of the way into Dinosaur Jr’s set security escorted a local celebrity in to the chained off area I was standing next to. For the rest of the show I got to watch Dinosaur Jr with Kim Thayil from Soundgarden. It was pretty rad.

    On the Rollercoaster tour with Blur as well, right? I got to see the Brighton show. My Bloody Valentine were absolutely monstrously loud. Fantastic! Lots of people were sort of fleeing in terror during "You Made Me Realise". I really miss that band.

    Here’s my top 4!

    1. Getting on the guestlist along with 5 mates at a sold out show May 1989 in Portsmouth (UK) after meeting Lou and Murph outside the venue. Above and beyond the call of duty on their part!! Great show too! Lunachicks supporting. Ah happy days :D
    2. Forum shows last year. 16 years on. Original line up. Just as good if not better than in 1989!!!
    3. Main stage. Reading Fesitval. 1991. That was the Year Punk Broke. That Was. What an afternoon!!
    4. Seeing them on the Word one night back in (er..whenever it was!!) doing ‘Get Me'(the Word was a terrible late night Friday post the pubs Yoof TV show – really bad – but they had good musical guests – sometimes!!). Like a BOMB going off on TV!! Mascis just tearing into this Les Paul Gold Top (has anyone got the footage of this? – if so stick it up on You Tube now!) whilst an unamed lady drummer rocked it!! Anyone know who that lady drummer was? She was thumping those tubs!

    When J attacked Loun with his guitar and they were guitar fighting. Hilarious.
