Q: I saw the Grateful Dead religiously from 1983 to 1995. After Jerry's death I periodically saw different configurations of the dead, but the music didn't spark that magic until you showed up - Thanks!

A: aw, man, that is such a nice thing to say! I do think that several others have also brought the magic, but I am happy to hear you felt it from my playing. :)
