I have watched all of the 'Fare Thee Well' shows except for 'from Drums & Space on' from the last night on July 5th. Image

Bob Weir on The Big Interview with Dan Rather August 11th on AXS TV. I've seen some good interviews with him. Looking forward to this one.

They're all playing gigs together in separate bands, riding that money train. You know at each show the fans are hoping they'll all jam together at the end as The Dead...live again! :roll:
It saddens me. They should stay dead and not dangle the carrot of a reunion in front of money paying fans like that.
Jerry and Ron are pissed! :x

I don't know if that's true.....they are musicians.....what do musicians do....they play music. I think that they are just doing their thing. As the Grateful Dead, that's basically over, we all know that...they know that....but that doesn't mean they have to sit at home. Phil doesn't want to tour anymore. Bob's up for it......I think you'll see plenty of Dead tunes and other stuff that this group feels like playing.

I'm not Sleepy (or sleepy), but I think it's fantastic. Probably my favorite out of the whole series, with just a mind-meltingly weird "Dark Star" being the piece de resistance.

I love some of their albums, some not as great as others. A bit like any true talent.

Warren Haynes is the BEST musician that ever played with them. PERIOD.



I totally agree, but he made it sound like ABB, I read Bill Kreutzman's book, and that's what he said. Also, the The Grateful Dead/FZ connection is that The Grateful Dead used to hang out (maybe just once) at The Log Cabin, I read it in Pauline Butcher's book.

Hi Ark,

I agree with Shrewnews, it's excellent and one of the better releases of the series. You might have a hard time finding it at this point. It's sold out on the site. One gripe I have about these releases is the limited edition thing. Gimme a break.

Dead & Company July 7th 2018 @ Dodger Stadium.

Jerry Garcia, Pigpen & Brent Mydland holograms? Probably not, but I may get a cheap seat.

Dead & Company

So without Jerry Garcia it can still be called Grateful Dead but if Phil Lesh isn't there it can't be called Grateful Dead?

In yet another example of what a worthless rag Rolling Stone magazine is...
they posted this
"Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame No Shows: Jerry Garcia, 1994
The Grateful Dead frontman didn't show up at his induction, reportedly because he was opposed to the whole idea of a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The rest of the Dead disagreed, and they brought a cardboard cut-out of the singer onstage.
"

"The rest of the Dead" did not disagree. Robert Hunter also did not show, and as any listener who is paying attention knows, Robert Hunter is the second main ingredient in the Grateful Dead. Garcia and Hunter go way back. They were the first two members of the Dead to meet and form a band together. They wrote almost all of the Dead's great songs together. It's not a coincidence that they snubbed the HOF.

Pretty much since Jerry died, it's been something other than The Grateful Dead. The played as "The Grateful Dead" at the Fare The Well shows to honor their 50th anniversary and to basically put an "end" to it. The end is because Phil said although he will continue to play, he is lo longer interested in touring.

Names they have been

Further
The Dead
The Other Ones
Further (again)
Dead & Company
