Over in another topic, scubabrew raised the question of why we're not talking about post-Jerry Dead.

Many things could be said on the subject; some would certainly have it that "post-Jerry Grateful Dead" is a contradiction in terms, and in any case the band retired the name after Jerry passed. But as scuba implies, that doesn't really address the fact that there were some darn fine shows by The Dead, The Other Ones, etc.

So here's the place to talk about 'em!

John Kadlecik + Dead = good times again

I would like to add my support for a Dead reunion with Mr. Kadlecik on lead. Those tones...fit so well with the music. I never cared for anyone else. I like Hayes, but not as much with The Dead (altho that cover of Shine On You Crazy Diamond was pretty nice). The surviving members, plus Mr. DSO would bring back some magic. I'm thru grieving, can actually picture myself seeing the guys post Jerry now.

I also never really cared for Joan Osbourne singing with the band. Hornsby would be a nice welcome back. I'd travel for The Dead more than once, maybe not for Phil & Friends/Ratdog.

Heres an idea: put on a festival show with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson! The Dead played at Willie's Family Picnic in Austin. Just add Dylan, get the full Dead, that memory would be up there with the old days!

Grace Is The Real Deal

Yeah I Would Love to see Grace with the Dead. I drove up 5 maybe 6 hours to San Fransisco to see Gov't Mule. She was opening and I had never heard of her then she came out and just started singing. I fell in love. She should be topping the charts. She is better live than on record. I just wanted to hear what Warren sounded like withe the Dead since I think he's the greatest guitarist of my time and I love his voice and I can't seem to find anything from Wave That Flag.

GRACE POTTER ON ORGAN

"..one good thing, one good thing, when it hits you feel no pain..."

PEFECT POST GARCIA LINE UP:

Phil, Bob, Mickey, Bill, John of DSO, and Grace Potter plays organ, better than pig ever did, and she can sing all background harmonies, donna parts, IN KEY, and she can sing lead on many cool songs...Grace is the real thing, and the jam band scene can use a low key fine woman who is a musical leader as well....

John of DSO

"..one good thing, one good thing, when it hits you feel no pain..."

Forget about a Phil tour for John...that would be a waste of time. John needs to play with Bob and Phil. Bob already embraces DSO, and has played often with John. Phil is the hardhead here. Get the entire band together, and add John, and don't muddle things up with a talented, but chemistry-less third guitarist.

Of utmost importance would also be the choice of keyboardist. If Rob Baracco would just mellow out a bit, slow those hands down, he understands the music
