Exclamation Re: Grateful Dead vs Jefferson Airplane

Jefferson Airplane on the strength of their transcendental hits from the late sixties.



Jefferson Airplane didn't stay that good, but the Grateful Dead didn't get to that level at all.

Re: Grateful Dead vs Jefferson Airplane

The hits of Jefferson Airplane were some of the best the 60s had to offer.

Grateful Dead were a better live band that studio.

IMHO, this very common opinion is way overblown because 1) they are arguably one of the greatest live bands of all time so how could they not be better live and 2) Yes they have a few clunkers but I would argue they have as many great studio albums as a lot of other bands. E.g. I would say both Jefferson Airplane (Surrealistic Pillow, Baxters and Volunteers) and Grateful Dead (American Beauty, Workingmans Dead, Blues for Allah) have 3 great studio albums.

The Allman Brothers were way better live band too yet somehow they don't get labeled with the same tag as The Dead.

Re: Grateful Dead vs Jefferson Airplane

Truthfully it's a tie but I'll give a slight nod to the Dead. Both bands were tremendous live. The Dead were great live but could command the studio seemingly at will.
