By suggestion, since the Obama reunion topic is now a hotbed of discussion on the proper guitarist for the gig.
Here's the scenario: for whatever reasons seem good to them, Bob, Billy, Mickey and Phil decide to play some gigs together.
Who's the rest of the band?
I won't dare to try to spell his last name here, but Scott M from Max Creek! He played with Billy K and the Mike Gordon band, and jsut ROCKS! He's the perfect fit in Jerry's guitar place, but you'd still need Jackie Greene to cover the vocals! Scott's voice is great, but rough and not very Jerry like!
* Go to archive, and check out Creek -- it'll amaze you!

Remember, a lone ameuter built the Arc.
A group of professionals built the Titanic."
perhaps we should confine ourselves to musicians still with us on this mortal plane, 73...
For one thing, the Brent camp duking it out with the Pigpen camp ain't gonna be pretty. Let's not go there...
not a dream one, but a prediction: mark karan, jackie green, jeff chimenti. karan just played an august 31 show with phil in the absence of larry campbell. jackie can take up the vocal slack, and i picked chimenti only because i prefer him to molitz.
jerry garcia and ron "pigpen" mckernan!
