grateful dead>the cramps
Apples and oranges? For fuck's sake man, stop taking attacks on your music taste so seriously. Take it from someone who used to react like you do on message boards and made a huge ass of himself as a result. I KNOW. It is not worth it. You are just handing ammo to your attackers by saying stupid shit like "grateful dead>the cramps" in a thread where people are trying to pay tribute to a huge loss in rock music.
I like certain eras of The Dead's work (Mainly Pigpen era and when Brent first joined). Yes I get shit for that and oh-fucking well. I'll live.
Yes people will fuck with you on here if you even mention anything to do with jam bands, but get over it. There are message boards in other places where you can argue over whether the 1st night at Winterland was better than the 2nd and shit like that. This is NOT that place.
