Fine, to each his own. All I know is dogs slow down and not at my pace. Have fun being 70 at a Furthut Show. That should match right about up.

At the Academy Of Music was played this week on Sirius. Glorious sound and it's a scorcher. Thank You! This show does not circulate- all that exists on is a poor sounding copy of most of the first set. It's a 72 gem, and I hope someday this entire show is released.

the bullet smarcus! I took my girlfriend to the show in Portland just before Phil's 70th bash. She never "got" the Dead. My brother and his wife drove in from Madras Oregon for that show. His wife didn't "get" the Dead. The ladies haven't missed a New Years Eve show since.
I started going to Dead concerts in '67-'68. I stopped in the mid 80's. I saw my first Furthur concert 12/30/09. As they worked their way into "Here Comes Sunshine", I looked up to the balcony at all the swaying folks and then around me at all the smiling happy swaying people. Tears born of happiness swelled in the corners of my eyes.
This isn't a cover band and if you are going to see the Grateful Dead you will probably be disappointed.
Tickets can be hard enough to get already, smarcus. Stay home and listen to recordings and write opinions. I never saw a Dead show that I didn't like the recording of better anyway ;-)

Point of view changed...

Well, I would say after seeing Grateful Dead since 1967 and Jerry since 1961, and working for them for almost 15 years, I would say I do know what the hell I'm talking about...It doesn't mean I am right, but it does mean that you are wrong!

I have re evaluated my attitude about Furthur because in early March I was listening to channel 23 and heard an extremely rockin' live version of Scarlet>Fire that was most obviously NOT the Grateful Dead, but had some really incredibly tight jamming...I was actually dancing while I was driving. I am assuming it was Furthur...

7 Walkers is NOT a GD cover band, as much as a really good jam band that happens to feature a former member on drums...when they do GD songs they make them completely their own.

Furthur IS a GD cover band featuring two former members of the band and while they do sound like GD, they also make the songs their own...

I am ready to bite the bullet and see them in concert.
