For all the talk about Phil and what his Friends are up to!
Didn't see any happy B-Days to Phil, so I thought I send one. Many good wishes and positive energy to Phil, he's certainly sent so many my way, Karma demands some in return.
I am inquiring, and meanwhile Happy 70th to Phil!
U guys usually put a Birthday shout-out on the Landing page for the appropriate band member.... where is Phil's???
Indeed, Happy #70 Phil. Thanks for your contributions over the last 45 years and especially so since Jerry's passing. I will definitely look forward to your next appearances!
I hope you have a grateful day! We all love you Phil and I'm having a wonderful time going Furthur with you and Bobby (and Jay, Joe, Jeff and the awesome girls singing backup). Thank you!

Sorry for the cross post. Can anyone tell me what show John mayer sat in with Phil and friends?
Please and Thanks!
why is it a stretch to think that Phil would show up and play bass with Jackie and Bob and Karan? they did it not too long ago at the GAMH, remember? not at all the gigs but a few select shows... a little all-star jam set sorta thing....best chance of any Phil for the summer>early Fall at least...
cheers, oso rojo
naturally, i wouldn't be surprised if Phil popped in and played a few songs or even a whole show with jackie if he happened to be in the area...
I think Phil will do some of his usual fall things, but keeping my ear to the ground, and will advise if anything surfaces.
I've been predicting a P&F / Ratdog summer tour for a while, but once again, proven wrong. Seing Jackie (even without Phil) as an opener for Ratdog is certainly a treat, though.
Now I will start predicting / hoping for a Jackie opening for a P&F, RD NYE gig again like last year... that is, if there ain't a The Dead show for NYE.
maybe, just maybe, Rothberry will be the pivot on the fulcrum to announce some more The Dead shows.
one never knows, do one?
What I remember hearing/reading is he is taking the summer off to spend time with family. I have a feeling we will see our favorite bass player sometime soon after that... As for him playing with Jackie Greene - pretty darn sure that will not happen this summer. That being said, I would love to be proven wrong! :-)

I just saw some people saying it on philzone.com. Probably not true but Phil is either taking a long break this summer and fall or he has something up his sleeve....hopefully!
