San Francisco, CA, USA
A lifestyle, and keeps you in tune with the weather, the sea, and the fact that we are maritime creatures. One of my best moments surfing was watching grey whales surf with me at Montara Beach in El Granada, a close runner up was surfing perfect Rincon double overhead, but my favorite sessions have to be Ocean Beach in San Francisco, cold and burly, but amazing.
Though some may think that Trey has a pact with the devil that has given him God-like powers on the guitar, I believe that the bands powers come from Henrietta, which is an artifact from Gamehenge of "pure concentrated evil", those who play the vacuum and drink from its spring of intoxicating power are bound to wander and not be lost. These four words sum it all up...Boy..Man..God..Sh!t.
Consider the song, "The Music Never Stopped"
They're a band beyond description
Like Jehovah's favourite choir
People joining hand in hand
While the music plays the band
Lord they're setting us on fire
The Grateful Dead are Americana to the core, folk, rock, jazz, spontaneous improsation, prodigious players with a sense of humor and intellect. Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.
Martin has a long standing tradition to make high quality acoustic guitars that sound amazing. As a guitar player and a luthier, these guitars inspire me, and I strive to build and play guitars of this quality. The only other acoustic that I may rate higher is a hand made Henderson, but the likelyhood of getting one of those is small considering Wayne has a 10 year backlog.
