Weir Here Over There...TRI

whatever it was that blew into Bob's life earlier, he seems to have weathered it quite well. You look and sound great, Bob!

**as usual, I'm at least 10 steps behind. Didn't realize GTed notified us about this around 30 days ago and that it actually took place on June 12th. I'm gonna be late for my own funeral, I swear!

get well soon but can't wait for the tour

this is the same kind of attitude that put Jer in his grave, I don't care if he ever tours again, you don't owe us anything.

Too many possibilities...

There's just too many possibilities for Bob's fall ... maybe dehydrated, low potassium, or maybe he was slipped something w/o his knowledge? Just hope he's feeling better and will have a productive upcoming tour. I've always thought touring would be more tolerable if bands could take more days off for rest between cities, for site-seeing, or just relaxing by the pool.

My thoughts on BOBBYGATE 2013

I accept Phil's explanation that "Bobby has an injured shoulder" for what it is. If Bobby has an injury, he may be on prescription pain killers (IE Rush Limbaughesk Oxycodone issue). The night he bailed, it was the last show of the 9 night run in Portchester. Who wouldn't have a drink on such an occasion? I am not claiming that Bobby is a Wharf Rat or anything but I would find it hard to believe that at this point in his life, he would develop a drinking (Pigpen) or drug (Jerry & Brent) problem. He is married with children and he has successfully created TRI and Sweetwater. IE: Life is good in Bobby Land.

That being said, all you have to do is listen to the 4/15 Portchester (Night 1 at the Capitol?) Watchtower. It was very similar to the Me & My Uncle during the fall out show. Bobby just stopped singing and the band went into some tripped out jam as if intentional to cover it up. There is also the Nokia show at which a medicine mix up was blamed to realize something is going on here.

I wish Bobby a speedy recovery and I hope he comes to terms with the root of the problem. While I didn't appreciate Phil's seemingly uncaring perseverance during the show, I can understand his frustration if this was a predictable occurrence. I guess what I am trying to say is that while Phil went through one liver, he has flown pretty straight since his transplant and I hate to see us losing some of his remaining shows due to avoidable circumstances. I know it took a while after Jerry's passing for Bob & Phil to see eye to eye and I think they have been making a pretty good run at things as of late.

Anyway, I am just feeling antsy waiting on some word regarding the upcoming Furthur shows. I DO love Bobby and Phil, and all of you for that matter. Peace and Love.

Bob's Shoulder Trouble

Sounds to me like Bob had a heart attack. Considering the symptoms, it pretty much fits the description. Either which way, I hope he feels better soon!

watch the video, if you can find it now

I got to see the video of Bobby falling and it didn't look like his shoulder was bothering him, I mean he staggered, stumbled and fell down and could not get up without roadies help, finished song and was never seen again this nite. What's up Bobby? inquiring minds want to know, is it the shoulder? is it rehab? is it old age? what ever it is, please keep in mind that you are not 20 anymore. I for one would like to see you take off as much time as you need or want, yes, we will all miss you, but you will still be alive, which is what it's all about, right? Please don't go out like Jerry, save yourself, if not for us, for your family.
Tri studios has pretty much made this video unavailable on the web due to copyright, or is it that they just don't want people to see what really happened? Love ya Bob. Get well first, then play.

Weir's health

Maybe I should mind my own business, but what the f is up with Bob's health. I'ver heard all kinds of rumors and figured you folks would know better. If he is in a "treatment center", that can't be a good sign. I mean if its just a shoulder problem then fine. But if its more serious and no official word other than he is out tiil mid June then I am not sure its as simple as a strained shoulder. No matter what I wish him a quick and speedy recovery
