"Death never takes a vacation in this land..." I know which version I prefer. But Jerry Garcia & co's brooding jam - from Live/Dead - is not bad either, I'll give you that.

And since we're on the subject of Garcia, and I'm still full of that fantastic Patti Smith gig I saw last Wednesday, here's the beautiful ode to Captain Trips she opened with. "One common wire, one silver thread..."
