  • deadessays: A Country Jam in the Chapel Bob Weir: "On our days off when we were traveling, we would have our acoustic guitars, and Jerry and I and whoever was around - if the New Riders were traveling with us, we'd all fall together and kick stuff around. A lot of it was folk material of one sort or another. We had a whole repertoire that we never played onstage - country gospel tunes that we sang in three- and four-part harmony, and all that kind of stuff. We did that just for fun, and for the exercise." John Dawson: "The best part was when Garcia, Weir and I took our guitars and jammed in this amazing 10th-century chapel. It was really, really great sounding. It was kind of eerie, especially thinking about all the people who'd been through there over the centuries."
