  1. Hi Mat, thank you very very much for sharing all these Jerry & Merl treasures. What strikes me too, is that on their pictures together, Jerry’s always in a very good mood (as is Merl). As much as I love GD (and I really do), for me it’s Jerry and Merl (and David) that I connect to. I feel like a kid going to a candy store when I visit your site, so, again, thank you very much – cheers.

    1. You are very welcome. Yes, in the photos (there aren’t very many of them though) of Jerry and Merl together they seem like they are having a blast. Certainly they made killer music together.
