to read what was edited out of my original post drop me a PM.
Maybe I see some of the same things in myself that I saw in the 2009 press conference with the boys in NYC or in the interview with Bob. I haven't hit the trail anywhere near as hard as they have but I recognize the symptoms.
Watch the interview again. This is akin to a prizefighter with too many blows to the head. Remember, I said the soul was intact. Read some of the comments on archive about Bob. People there pull no punches.
Most of the world is living in denial, I realize that. "so naive and pathetic" That is what I would say about people who don't give their honest opinion. I have quite a few compliments for what I write and I'm not at all insecure about it. Nor do I think Bob needs an iota of affirmation from me. I did say that I'm not batting on the same level as Bob, so may not be able to pull it all in. One thing I do know, I've been trained very meticulously to observe without my judgement butting in. So why don't you reign in yours? Judgement, that is.
Other people have pointed out that on this site people just fall all over themselves to point out the good with the blinders on. I see that. But I also see people who disagree and are not afraid to say so, That is what makes this a great site to read and post on. What I have come to see is that not everybody sees this site in the same way. It is the commercial arm of of Rhino and GDM. Any questions?
Post a link to them. Thank you.

A founding member of the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir's musical legacy (separate from its cultural implications) will be of an utterly strange rhythm guitar player and songwriter who grew up in one of the most lasting outside bands of the 1960s. ...
Through a revolving lineup, the band -- like the Dead -- toured incessantly, working their way through clubs and theaters, building both a repertoire of new Weir compositions and reworked Dead songs as well as an original sound. In 2000, Ratdog released their first album, Evening Moods to mixed reviews. In the summers of 1998 and 2000, Weir reunited with several former Dead bandmates to tour as the Other Ones, releasing a live album in 1999. Weir continues to develop as a bandleader and an elder for new generations of jam bands.
