Fruit Of The Loom " Issued Black T-Shirt... And obviously, without any question at all - this is indeed one of those Yep, I Need That! I'll never forget the very first time that I saw this Amazing! Design surface, as it was inside the pavilion at Shoreline!! And it was the guy sitting 1-row between me & Bill Walton that was wearing it! Quite easy to remember that day, for all reasons obvious... And, with all due respect to Bill... I must say that the " Supplication " on that'93 Shoreline day - was pretty darn memorable too!! The Grateful Goods to the California Shoreline Dead Fan Faithful!
But seriously, I was like - Whoa?? Where did you get that...And he was like - nowhere super special man, just at the Merch. You can imagine what it was like seeing this clever G. For the very 1st time... I mean check out the photos! It features a wonderfully creative 9-part segment inside a' Grid' that shows the Prehistoric > Modern Evolution of the " Bertha " Skull & Roses itself!
And as far as I'm concerned... It's a True Story!
I mean it's all Black & White in this scene too - until Bertha arrives Evolves! Wearing a Blue Ribbon with Red Roses in her Hair!
Written in what looks like kind of a Bone-like font... And on the back side...The' Complete' Evolution of the Bertha Skeleton! Evolving into what looks like Dancin' at a Dead Show!! Well, that seems to me to just be about right! Possibly during a mean & nasty China > Rider transition, perhaps? I mean check it out, as this is a full-on 4-legged to 2-legged Evolution here - obviously going Way-Back!
You bet -- What A Long Strange trip It's Been!!! Skull & Rose design with a Blue 13-point Bolt! Wow, I wish we'd seen more of this design on stickers, tape covers & what have you - back in the day.
