Happy Birthday Phil.

The San Fran show was fun and it was really long and they played un-real songs the set list is amazing buuuut the downer to me was that John did not sing lead on any of the songs. What's up with that? I understand if it is a Phil and Friends show but for Furthur when you have John standing right there - please let him sing! I drove a long way to not see my boy John sing :-(

Happy Birthday Phil

You have kept the music alive and fresh and always new. The way you have explored your own path is an inspiration to me as I explore mine. And like you I will never stop searching for the sound. Thanks

Happy Birthday Phil

Phil I saw you live for only the second time at the Further show in Miami. You are the God of Bass. Glad you are playing and having fun.
Thanks so much for the dedication and great music!

Thank you Phil!

Okay, I just want to say how beautiful it is to see this group of ageing venturers reliving parts of their past, making it new, and sharing that creativity and zest for life with the rest of us.

Phil, you are certainly holding not just the low end, but the vision - your archival sense and perspective on this great catalogue of music which we call the Dead make this ambitious retrospective tour happen. You are not just dusting off old relics, you've been oiling and winding them and keeping them tuned for years in your own projects, taking responsibility for their survival. And we have been privileged to hear them anew in a fun, successful ensemble.

Thank you, Phil! You are a trooper. A psychedelic music pioneer - we can't thank you enough. Keep initiating, keep singing, and keep smiling.
See you at ROTHBURY!

With much LOVE,
Kirsten

For Joelsd...

You were in the movie, "Ghostbusters" weren't you? Well never mind that, just stay in touch so we can get that sample of brain tissue you promised us, at some point in time.
Oh and if you're serious about giving up playing guitar because of politics (of any kind... for any reason), I would consider that the biggest mistake you've made (yet) in your life.

whatever makes you happy

Dude, you've been playing bass for 25 years and are gonna quit? Don't do it man ! It's about the music man. Just cause the Dead don't sit around and pick their noses when they're not playing it's not the end of the world. Do Obama and Tipper make you that mad? Take a chill pill bro and mellow out. Good luck and God bless.
