Had visions of Jerry either laughing boisterous or spinning in his grave. I do understand this fraud of a tribute band is ending soon. Any opinions on this? Am I missing something?
    I thought the same thing whenever I listened to them. Some people just need a Dead fix any which way they can get it. Phil's bands are the only ones I was ever interested in seeing, especially when he has Scofield on guitar.

    185 plus GD shows under my belt and the answer is "No, you're not missing anything"

    The real GD torch is being carried high and wide by Billy Strings.

    Nope. I go back to 1967 with the Dead in San Francisco and Dead & Co. just doesn't work for me either. Not at all.

    Now Furthur I came to really like.

Fiddler and Harp player were welcome additions.

    Truthfully, I wasn't expecting to like it as I've too been burned out of GD for awhile. But they delivered the goods and every rump was shaking.

    Smiles all around.

    Good times in Stern Grove
    I was there and agree 100%. I thought I would enjoy it but it easily exceeded my expectations. Very cool show.

    I hear you. I’m a big fan but think it’s overdone.

    Don’t speak bad about Jerry. It’s poor form.
