Deadhead, deadhead, take another toke Deadhead, deadhead, you're a lousy joke Friend of the devil, who you trying to kid Friends of the devil are dead like Sid I'll be grateful when you're dead I'll be grateful when you're dead I'll be grateful when you're dead So don't stick around too long Riding that train high on cocaine The music is really lousy, the fans are a pain Troubles behind, troubles ahead The only good deadhead is one that's dead

Most of the time, when I'm ranting about my hatred of the dead, I don't even bring up thier lyrics.
Guess I don't have to tonight, either.

Obviously Garcia's playing is a matter of taste. But out of tune? I've listened to probably hundreds of live Dead performances and I can't think of a single show that featured out of tune anything. In fact, I think Garcia was one of the most emotive, soulful guitarists. His leads, at their peak, were beyond melodic. I'm not trying to convert anyone since I know that won't work. I'm just saying that most preconceived notions of his playing are not correct. You could go to archive.org to listen to some free music. I recommend a 1972 show.
