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.

WRG will play at KC Crossroads this Saturday night! It's been awhile since Bobby has performed in Kansas City. He'd been in Lawrence, KS with Ratdog a time or 2.
This venue is an outdoor urban theater located behind Grinder's a pizza joint w a good microbeer selection.
1947 was the year
turns 64? 65?
Oct 16 is here again!
Just listened to a super Playin in the Band from this day in 1974.
I didn't realize the Throckmorton show was last weekend, thought it said June28, until I checked out the Furthur website yesterday. I hope Bob will bring his solo-acoustic tour to Arcata sometime this year, haven't seen a show since the Rhythm D's played there a year ago.
What about a hot date?
Hey Bobby, hope you had a grate day.
ps, love the new band :)
I love you, but your "public" political stance need to go. Just play and sing and believe in your fans to know what's right...
