Its cool man

I undestand everone has different oppinions. No harm intended. Id take a dead show over DSO anyday, it just seems more convinent to see DSO since they tour all year round practically.

now now

It's all good phatmoye I don't dislike them or anything and some day I'll be all into them I'm sure but for now as long as the GD boys are touring I put all my energy into them.

Oh yes i DID

Hey there brother from a different mother, INCRIMINALIZING!! I think not! Cover band, yes. You tell me 1 other band that comes even close to sounding like the real thing? I think its great what there doing! There not the dead, and I think they know that. There just spreading the music, after all, isn't it all about the MUSIC.

Oh No You Didn't

DSO are the complete antithesis of what the Grateful Dead are, they are merley a clone and a pretty poor one at that. I really can not comprehend how you(or anyone) think that "jerry dude" sounds anything like Jerry Garcia. I also don't care what Phil or anyone else thinks of them. Another thing Jerry and the Grateful Dead taught me was to think for myself, but I know for a fact Phil has never even considered listening to that band.

I don't begrudge anyone a good time but for that band to be running around the country advertising themselves as the "grateful dead experience" is whhhack and possibly criminal(cosmically at least)(((enjoy your ride))))

ARE YOU GUYS CRAZY?

Exuse me, are you sure you seen dark star? DSO recreates a whole show damn near note for note! John K. sounds just like Jerry, I believe it was either Bobby or Phil a few years back that said,"If you close your eyes, you would swear that Jerrys on stage" I can remember seeing this somewhere.

I think I am going to have to agree with ya. When they first came onto the scene I was excited because I was so badly in need of a Grateful Dead fix and I will admit they sounded pretty good. But with each time I saw them the love faded and I am not quite sure why, maybe seeing Ratdog for the first time made me realize there is no substitute for the real Bob Weir. Hey if there is no alternative, then DSO is fine but with the Dead up and touring and Ratdog and Phil and Friends around I just prefer sticking to those shows thank you very much.

HUH??

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about? I've seen DSO about a half dozen times and its been pretty lame each time. I've only made it to the end once and thats cuz the neighborhood outside was too bad to wait for my friends. No talent, no imagination just a straight up rip off. The guy that plays Booby and the women that plays Donna Jean are pretty good the rest couldn't get a gig in a coffee shop that was owned their parents, waste of time and money, go see Mars Volta.and if you think this band sounds anything like the GD please pass the vial cause you've had too much.
