This act played live before more people and sold more tickets than any other rock act.

They sold more tickets than the Beatles, and more than the Rolling Stones. More than Dylan. More than Led Zeppelin. More than Simon and Garfunkel and Paul Simon combined. More than the BeeGees. More than Michael Jackson. More than U2. More than Nirvana. More than Metallica. More than Mariah Carey. More than Celine Dion. More than anyone you can name.

The Grateful Dead. The greatest live band of all time.

If you hate them, fuck off to another thread.

In this one, we celebrate their magnificence.

I offer this 3-plus hours of live listening, just as an example, not as even one of their best shows:

I saw them a few times back in the day.i saw them at Ken Keseys place once. Pretty memorable and I don't remember much from those days.

Maybe that's how it played out in your home country of Somalia, but in the rest of the world they sucked @zz

Speaking from the land of Ken Kesey, they sounded better as a 'and friends" band after JG OD'ed.

I love their album stuff, but can't listen to their live jams on Sirius. I'm sure it would be a different experience if i were actually there at the concert.
Link Posted: 5/2/2015 10:47:37 PM EDT
Unlistenable. Directionless, never ending jam sessions on par with countless garage bands. Which is what they would always have been without the proliferation of narcotics.

I'm a hater. I'll leave now.

Hey, the amount of pot at the concert was the same, but at least the band wasn't stoned out of their mind while they were on stage....

The Grateful Dead have not played a show since Jerry Garcia died in 1996. That will be 20 years ago next year. Still, despite that 20-year gap, they have still played more shows and sold more tickets than all your gods—Stones, Zep, Maiden(head), KISS, ad nauseum.

Suck it, haters.

Suck it.

Shit, the Dead were inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in 1994, ahead of even Led Zeppelin.

Dead would make a good bar band for a beach-side tiki-bar or a pier , or maybe as background music at a farmers market

I saw Rush from 1980-89. The were good, 1980-1985, and Geddy could still sing in that era. After that? LOL Geddy was a croaking toad, at very best. There is no comparison. How many tickets has Rush sold, even with 20 years to catch up?
Link Posted: 5/2/2015 11:32:01 PM EDT

Have not smoked pot in 20+ years.

Who do you think has sold more tickets than the Grateful Dead? Even though the GD has not existed for 20 years?

Facts are intractable things . . .

This thread is about who has attracted the most fans.

It isn't Iron Maiden. It isn't KISS. It isn't Michael Jackson. It isn't Metallica. it isn't any of a hundred faggot metal bands. It is the Grateful Dead. If you hate them, just fuck off. This is not a thread for you.

I don't know. But every show is sold out in minutes. And for high $$$.

They also don't play 3 shows a week like the Dead did.
