Thanks Bob and the rest of the band for making it up to Vancouver BC earlier this year (Feb.18) at the Commodore Ballroom. I truly recommend that DeadHeads world wide make this a concert destination. The super cool vibe of the finest music on the planet,in such a beautiful city and of course, the world's primo pot, BCBUD makes it a must experience, experience!
In fact I think there might have been more than one, because there was one incident that was long enough ago to have been written up in the Golden Road!
Anyone remember the BW impersonator from several years back? odd story.
At O'Hare ariport in Chicago a few weeks ago, I stopped at a Chicago Field Museum souvenir stand and was eyeballing a funky stuffed animal... the vendor told me it is a "Bat Eared Fox" from Africa. He then told me that Bob Weir had been through the previous week and bought one! Didn't even take a bag, but just walked through the airport proudly carrying his new Bat Eared Fox (pictured in link). He had no way of knowing that I'm a fan of Weir's or of the Dead, so I don't think he would have made it up... when I got back to the Gate and told my kids, they gave me that glazed over "oh, he's talking about the Dead again" look, but I thought it was pretty neat.
Wanger on his website talked about how he and Weir were always seated next to each other alphabetically...
that ole bastard mike wanger, what a guty!! ( just kiddin') don;t know him)
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
