The Ten Commandments of Rock & Roll

  • Suck up to the top cats
  • Do not express independent opinions
  • Do not work for common interests, only factional interests
  • If there's nothing to complain about, dig up some old gripe
  • Do not respect property or persons other than band property and personnel
  • Make devastating judgments about persons and situations without adequate information
  • Discourage and confound personal, technical, and/or creative projects
  • Single out absent persons for intense criticism
  • Remember that anything you don't understand is trying to fuck with you
  • Destroy yourself physically and morally and insist that all true brothers do likewise as an expression of unity
Other mentions of the Grateful Dead are the Europe '72 LP in the list of worst live albums, the 1st Grateful Dead album in the list of most disappointing debut albums and Phil Lesh in the list of best bass solos.
