I think that more bands now allow taping. See: http://btat.wagnerone.com/search.php?oneClick=1 Its not just a Grateful Dead thing. Older musicians seem to be more resistant than younger ones, blues musicians seem more resistant than rock musicians, although every blues act I've asked to record has agreed so far. That includes Nick Moss, Johnny Rawls, Bob Margolin, Sean Carney, Sean Costello, Johnnie Marshall and a few others. 

I think I'll get my first "no" this Friday from EG Kight, but I could be wrong. That's OK, its her choice. I bet Motor City Josh on Saturday will let me. 

BTW, don't anyone assume because I was able to record an artist that it is ok for anyone to do it. Some of the folks I've mentioned are familiar with me and may trust me more than the average fan. Always ask, even if you personally have recorded them before.
