The Jam Band Scene / Grateful Dead Cult
Anyone else a fan of music festivals? And the modern day "hippie music" scene? I was, and still am to an extent, but its hard not to notice the cult-like aspects of the scene.

The jam scene serves as that final net of the occult music industry. When the people realize getting a record deal, or winning American Idol, or hoping for an expansive amount of success in the music industry, is a goal only attainable by those that sacrifice their artistic merits and creativity, they look for a way to still play out.

Us musicians, we thrive on a connection we hope to make with our audience - we hope to offer A) morals and lessons of life and/or B) entertainment that serves as an escape from the mundane. So a scene like the jam band scene seems ripe with opportunity: it's mostly home-grown, its populated with many, 'free-spirited' individuals. I'm not gonna lie, the casual sex with beautiful and open-minded women and the copious amounts of drug use are VERY alluring when you're a 'newbie' to the scene. But little by little, it seems to lose its worth...

You find out a large number of music festivals (and believe me, this is certainly not all of them...I've met amazing people in the scene on my travels) are nothing more than a smoke-screen for the promoters and bands to take part in MASSIVE drug deals behind the scenes.

In particular, the scene has quite a masonic stranglehold on it. Hell, Bob Weir, rhythm guitarist of the Grateful Dead (and now Furthur, of course) plays at BILDERBURG for Christs sake! All the members of the Grateful Dead are 33rd degree Masons. The Dead use Rosicrucian, masonic, and illuminati symbolism. I'm pretty sure the scene is, like 95% run by masons.

Discuss away.

"
1) Members of the Grateful Dead and the Merry Pranksters have NUMEROUS ties to US intelligence organizations and mind control operations. Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, and head Merry Prankster Ken Kesey (founder and promoter of the "acid tests" during the sixties, which served to "turn on" thousands of people to the CIA's mind control drug LSD) were both "volunteers" in the government's LSD "research" at Stanford University in the early sixties.

2) The Grateful Dead got their start as the "house band" for the Merry Pranksters' acid tests. "The Merry Pranksters" derived their name from a group of medeival satanists called the Merry pranksters. The motto of the modern-day merry pranksters was "Never trust a Prankster!". The Pranksters membership included LSD kingpin Owsley Stanley, British Intelligence agent and Whole Earth Catalog founder Stewart Brand, child-rapist Allen Ginsburg, and "Mountain Girl" aka Mrs. Jerry Garcia. The Pranksters were also great "friends" with everyone's favorite guys, The Hell's Angels. In other words, the freemason hell's angels were the "security" for the pranksters at their acid tests.

3) Despite being busted numerous times for drugs including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and HUMONGOUS quantities of LSD, none of the band members ever seems to have done any real jail time. I know of many people with no prior record who were busted with as little as a seed or a joint of marijuana who did jail time. Is the Grateful Dead's "outlaw" persona simply a phony masonic con job? Despite being busted in 1969 with HUMONGOUS quantities of drugs, the Dead not only did NO JAIL TIME WHATSOEVER, but were able to travel freely out of the country for their famous 1972 European tour.

4) The Grateful Dead record covers and art work are LOADED with Freemason symbolism. First of all, the skulls and skeletons which are EVERYWHERE in association with this band. Somewhere on Freemasonry Watch, there is a description of the 33rd degree ceremony, which describes all the SKELETONS that are hung up around the "temple" during this ceremony. At many Dead shows, there were large skeletons hung up both inside and outside the venue.

The rose (and the rose with the skeleton) is another VERY common symbol associated with the Grateful Dead, and with freemasonry.

On numerous concert posters and album art work, the artist Rick Griffin chose to represent a giant flying eyeball with wings. The disconnected "all-seeing eye" is a well-known masonic symbol.

The main symbol/corporate logo most people know of the Grateful Dead is from a record called "Steal Your Face". This corporate logo consists of a representation of a skull, with a lightning bolt going through the middle of it, originally (and usually) in masonic red, white and blue colors. You can view this logo (sans the red white and blue) at dead.net - the official homepage of the Grateful Dead corporation. This could easily be interpreted as a symbol of Crowley's "spermo-gnosticism". (See the website "Christendom and Freemasonry's Use of the Phallus" (as linked to on this site in other places) to read about what a lightning bolt symbolizes for freemasons). Indeed, the original name for the album featuring this logo was "Skull F*ck". The title was rejected by Warner Bros executives however, and the Dead decided to call the record "Steal Your Face" instead. Note too that the Dead had NUMEROUS and important connections with Crowley's OTO. Were the Grateful Dead spermo-gnostic semen drinkers like Crowley's other disciples? Their corporate logo would certainly seem to suggest this."

Most anything people do is somehow a business.
There is a lot of occultism associated with the music industry.
All of the top acts seem to have been related to the occult or used occult symbols especially in the 60s and 70s Led zeppelin, the dead, black sabbath, the list goes on and on depending on how deep you want to dig.
Historically even the old blues men like Robert Johnson are associated with hoodoo practice.

To some extent, I'm sure you need to at least acknowledge your indifference to the occult stranglehold of the music industry to be allowed substantial success. Like an unspoken rite of passage, if you will.

But my point of discussion is the way the jam scene acts as this final "net," to catch musicians (and the audience, free-spirited dissidents and activists), unwilling to "sell-out." It ensnares them into a scene of vices; these activists and dissidents embrace the scene for its free-spirited nature without even realizing the dark undertones, not even realizing they're just falling for another branch of the same system of occultism they're trying to avoid.

 Quoting: TDJ


I love the Grateful Dead! Jerry is a wizard on guitar, some of the best times of my life were on tour. (Unfortunately, I'm too young to have seen them play.) I'm not trying to convince anyone to stop listening to them.

And I still LOVE the scene; I love the atmosphere, the freedom, the embracing of the outdoors. Concerts that are weekend-long and filled with great discussions.

But in all the time I've spent in the scene, I've noticed it's very frowned upon to start discussing matters like the ones discussed on GLP, etc. They want people to remain subservient to the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll aspect of the scene, without delving too far into how we can change the world in a positive way.

I played many festivals and gigs, and I was blacklisted by the GDF for speaking my mind and jokingly referring to the fanbase as a cult.

Re: The Jam Band Scene / Grateful Dead Cult
So as a blacklisted musician of the "Jam band circuit," I thought it'd be an interesting discussion point for GLP.

Believe me, I still love the music and still go to a few festivals here and there. I know a large number of people in the scene; people that throw festivals, dozens of bands. Some of my best friends were met on lot, be it Furthur tour or the Dead tour in '09.

But there's also a dark side people in the scene REFUSE to acknowledge. I know this dark side personally, because they went after me. Not sure if you'd call it 'gang-stalking,' but if all the stuff that happened to me had some sort of synchronicity, it most certainly could be described that way.

One example...I book shows at a venue with a few friends. We have our own little company. I was encountered on Facebook to book a super jam. This jam featured members of many bands, including Rat Dog and former members of the Grateful Dead at the venue I book shows at. (Donna Jean was one of them...horrible vocals, and apparently a very horrible and bitchy person)

I was guaranteed an opening slot with my band. But being a blacklisted musician for saying too much, they dropped me off the bill at the last minute and stopped responding on Facebook. (They used me for my resources, than figured out my reputation on the scene as an outspoken individual.) They hired their own staff for the night; dozens of Freemasons, who were very condescending individuals. Donna Jean in particular had a horribly shitty attitude. They ended up STEALING OUR CUT OF THE NIGHT; the doorman they hired left an HOUR BEFORE THE SHOW ENDED, and the person who contacted me for the venue booking DELETED HIS FACEBOOK.

Hell, I don't even really feel safe posting this story with as many details as I have.

Good topic OP. Bound to draw hostility from the true believers.

I have musician friend who would say that you are not " tie-died certified."

Been scoping the Dead since 74 and have always felt "dark" energy there along with the good. Wouldn't lay it all on the band though. Plenty of creepy people are drawn to the scene.

Re: The Jam Band Scene / Grateful Dead Cult
This is actually so funny?

Simply because you don't like someone else's choices or opinions doesn't mean you get to rat on us and put us down. Oh, boo hoo! You don't like a culture that cares about the roots of this country! Stop complaining and open your mind to people other then you!

I'd invite you to read the lyrics to this song and tell me if they seem "satanic" to you!


Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm,
That will not forsake me till my tale is told and done.
While the firelight's aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow,
Till things we've never seen will seem familiar.

Shadows of a sailor forming winds both foul and fair all swarm.
Down in Carlisle he loved a lady, many years ago.
Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him,
Who came through many fights, but lost at love.

While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks,
Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there.
Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair,
She takes her fan and throws it, in the lion's den.

Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?
I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.
The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise,
Strategy was his strength, and not disaster.

The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
That's how it stands today, you decide if he was wise.
The storyteller makes no choice. soon you will not hear his voice.
His job is to shed light, and not to master.

Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold,
In hopes he will come back, but he cannot be bought or sold.

Inspiration, move me brightly. light the song with sense and color;
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.

Some rise,
Some fall,
Some climb,
To get to Terrapin.

Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright;
The spiral light of Venus, rising first and shining best,
On, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon,
While crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune,
Terrapin station.
In the shadow of the moon,
Terrapin station.
And I know we'll get there soon,

(Terrapin! )
I can't figure out,
(Terrapin! )
If it's the end or beginning,
(Terrapin! )
But the train's put it's brakes on,
(Terrapin! )
And the whistle is screaming,
Terrapin!

While you were gone, these spaces filled with darkness.
The obvious was here.
With nothing to believe in, the compass always points - to terrapin.

Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain.
You're back in terrapin for good or I'll again, for good or I'll again.

when the dead went big after touch of grey played on MTV...that was the beginning of the end of the scene.
the dead had no business selling out like that but they probably didn't know it would blow up in their faces either.

the "cult" grew but without direction. it became more about the drugs than "family".

the dead were the unexpected positive side of mkultra until it got out of hand, in my opinion.

the grateful dead "cult" were primarily music lovers and mind expanders with tendencies to not be violent idiots. call that what you will.

Re: The Jam Band Scene / Grateful Dead Cult
Dude, there is a dark side to every music scene. Mostly because people get cliquey and greedy. Ego's go unchecked. People start believing they are something they are not. People are mentally ill, into drugs, etc. Money and respect make people nuts. It comes with the territory. Doesn't always mean there is an evil cult controlling things behind the scenes. But it can get ugly. I've seen the nicest and most loveable people turn into paranoid, cut throat shitheads because of the music scene. And I've seen scenes that seemed positive and open blacklist and exile people over stupid things that don't even matter.
This usually happens to those who go into the scene naively and without a loyal group of positive people surrounding them.

Most cover/poster art is supposed to be provocative and mysterious. I wouldn't try to read too much into the symbolism. It's to sell records and get people talking - to have a brand associated with their name. Just like the skull and lightning bolt. You see it and you know who it is. It sells.

Eating Ass is my one joy in this miserable life. Please be kind to me.

Re: The Jam Band Scene / Grateful Dead Cult
You're right on OP. I feel so sorry for the thousands, if not millions of musicians that have no hope of 'making it' old school style (hard work and talent) because of what's required of them from the evil sons of bitches that run the entertainment industry.

Do you listen to what's popular? It not only sucks, it's dangerous to one's mind due to the repetition, hypnotic quality and the tuning of the instruments in the song. They are all 'dark' sounding, even if they're supposed to be a pop or dance track and most of them use electronic enhancement to create a robotic sound or dissonant noise.

I could go on and on and fucking on, but I'll just say that today's music is the number one threat to young people, even over TV and movies. My comrades over at the Jukebox will not like me saying this, but hop on over sometime and listen to what many of them are posting. No wonder there's so many depressed people. After listening to this electronic mind fuck music for a time, all you want to do is dissociate and disconnect from reality. I feel so sorry for them, they have no idea.
