    Happy birthday David. Your collaborations with Jerry Garcia acted as the gateway drug into the world of bluegrass for me as a young man. I now also partially blame you for my love of swing Jazz. Anyway you're one of my personal heroes and I’m forever grateful for introducing me to the mandolin and for all the wonderful music you have crated over the years.

    Happy 75th, David. Still remembering your (and Pamela's) generosity and accommodation all those years ago.
    Thank you for all the music you have thus far produced, played, influenced, and transformed. We know that you're far from done, yet.
    Peace and Love

    Has anyone done MORE for acoustic music than DG, regarding playing/performing, creating, preserving, and getting music to the world (Acoustic Disc company = CDs, etc. for sale to the public)? Happy B-Day Mr. Grisman!
