What the Grateful Dead means to you in 200 words or less. 

Understanding art lies with experiences. Art is written (or played or spoken or painted) and interpreted through the lens of the reader or listener. For example, a story about the beauty of a summer day at the ballpark means much less to a person who has never watched a baseball game in person. The Grateful Dead is the reflection of the world around it- the interpretation of not specific experiences but simply of being experienced. Their music is somehow relatable to anyone with any background, though the meaning certainly varies from person to person. What the Dead means to me is unique only to me. But we all want to enjoy the ride, and that feeling should be embraced in the coverage of the jam scene in order to give it the justice it's due.
