    Hardcore Dead tour kid. I cant really speculate on exactly what happened, but he didnt really know how to leave the party, so to speak.

    In the last few months, I have noticed that, at least the ones I know the really crazy tour folks, who wouldnt slow it down a bit, are more and more winding up in cemeteries or penitentiaries.

    I am glad Im getting older, more mature, and boring....able to calm myself down and make wise and healthy decisions

    Haha...You were the first person I thought of when posting.

    Feel free. I lost touch with him, and he was not part of my extreme inner circle of friends....

    Hey, Chigs...I'm so sorry about your loss.

    I had a lot of Dead Touring friends and used to see a guy before I met Sweetie who had the same M.O. They always try to take themselves to the next level until they hit rock bottom and never seem to learn from past mistakes.

    Just think about the good times, I'm sure your friend was all about "the good times" and wouldn't want you to be sad. :eek:

    Im really not sad, I saw him briefly at a Phish show about 8 months ago, but are lives were clearly becoming very different. We were never the closest of friends, but were definitely good buddies...

    More than sad, I am appreciative of the conscious decisions I have decided to make to help myself be a better person, and the levelheaded people I have surrounded myself with. There was a time in my life when I was going down a similar path, but I didnt let it happen to myself. Even though sometimes I feel like my life is kind of boring, I am happy for the quiet life I lead.

    I'm not using the death of a friend to make myself feel better about myself or to justify my boring fuckin existence

    I agree. Fake Jerry from DSO helped, but Im still not wanting to pay the ticket price.
