happy birthday phil

Someone please give me some ideas on shows to listen to that are 'philled out'. I want to get philled up today. Yesterday, I was jamming to the bass solo from Dick's Picks 34.

My Two Cents

The Grateful Dead never got involved in politics and that was a good thing. Each member may have voiced their own opinions over the years but as a collective unit they were independent. As a whole they believed in freedom of expression and doing what they thought was right for them and their fans. Jerry's philosophy was to not lead the straight life and just live, he had his political views but did not believe in using the band as a vehicle in expressing them. If the Other Ones feel the need to use their names as a bandwagon to express views that is their bag and one that I can ignore like when Phil speaks about the donor thing at every single show. Phil is adamant about the donor thing and that is ok, because it is a great cause, but not at every show. He should set up donor booths and do specific shows just for that. When Jerry died the well dried up a lot, but the boys still go out and give us music which I thank them for doing so. Phil plays bass very well in that off beat way that he does, but he sings like he is tone deaf. I heard a recent version of Money that Furthur played I loved the beginning and the chorus was great and then Phil sand the lead, I had to turn it off, he totally ruined what was a great song. In the Grateful Dead days I only enjoyed two songs that he sang, Box Of Rain and Tom Thumb Blues. I still enjoy the music and will not stop listening because of their use of their names to bandwagon politics. The dude who decided to quit playing his own music because of this needs to ask himself why he likes playing music and if he does not anymore then he should quit.

What would Jerry do? Certainly not raise money for a socialist bent on making us all dependent on "uncle scam". JG knew the GD existed because of our freedoms. Now he's gone and things have changed and I for one am saddened by it. All those years and now this stance? What a bummer.

Happy Birthday Phil.

Loved the b- day show, came out from CO to celebrate. Saw the Broomfield shows too, Great run fellas. Bobby looks great,John K looks solid. The whole band is hitting on all cylinders.

I gotta agree with Jackstraw, to much Chris Robinson was overkill! Would of prefered to hear more of JK.
