The Dead & Deadheads celebrate Jerry's Birthday | Saratoga 2004

Last night was fun...the problems were many and it was quite revealing to me why I have moved on from this scene and band, but I had a great time singing and dancing and especially enjoyed all the ballads!

Trey at Alpine!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 06/17/2004 - 6:00 am

I just have to agree with the other commentaries on the Trey Anastasio concert at Alpine Valley! Trey and the band were outstanding! I also read that Trey commented that Alpine Valley is "really the best place to play in the world." Whether Trey said that or not - it is true!

I hope everyone will make it out to East Troy sometime - Alpine Valley is a great place for a concert - especially when it is Trey Anastasio..

Trey Anastasio has no plans to stop touring after Phish

Submitted by gratefulweb on Thu, 06/17/2004 - 6:00 am

Sad but true.....Phish is on hiatus after touring for 15 years and as of now they have no plan to unite anytime soon. Fortunately, some of the Phishies are still making music - and plenty of it. Anastasio just finished recording a new album with Oysterhead, a new band comprised of Primus bassist Les Claypool and Police drummer Stewart Copeland. However, this solo show will display the talents of bassist Tony Markellis and drummer Russ Lawton alongside Trey.

Phil Lesh with RatDog in St. Louis | Review

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 06/17/2004 - 6:00 am

If one considers how Grateful St. Louis is for The Kind, The Shwag and Jake's Leg, there's no doubt that this city certainly knows how to honor its Dead. Truckin' into town are two of the ultimate Dead cover bands. Straight out of the kennel comes RatDog. Led by former Grateful guitarist Bob Weir, the band plays a repertoire of Bob's solo material, Dead favorites and, of course, select tracks from RatDog's premier 10 track CD, Evening Mood.

'Jerry's Rain' | My Mystical Experience with The Dead

This a story about my own first mystical experience with the band.  I can't remember exactly what year...82 or 83, I believe.  It was Friday the 13th and we were at the Greek Theater in Berkley Cal.  It was a gorgeous day...mid 70s and not a cloud in the sky.  This was back in the day when sold out shows were simulcast outside the facility so you were assured of a good time even without a ticket.  I was selling and trading painters hats with the steal your face stamped on top and was gifted a set of berkeley community theater stubs to get me in the shows.

Trey Anastasio's band

Well, I did not go to any of Trey Anastasio's summer tour.  I  saw him during his fall tour.  Needless to say I was not impressed.  I had a chance to catch him in Charlotte, NC this summer, but decided to catch Panic in Myrtle Beach, SC instead.  The songs that they played during the fall tour were ok at best.  Trey needs to reunite with Phish.  The way Phish used to play off of each other was what made Phish so talented.  He is planning to stop doing a lot of covers during his shows.  I would suggest he keep doing a few covers because if he comp

George Harrison - by Mike Macchi

I was born in 1965, the same year The Grateful Dead was born and the year that the songs that would land on the Beatles' landmark album "Rubber Soul" were probably starting to gel in the minds of the newly turned-on Fab Four.  I grew up about as big of a Beatle fan as anyone ever could meet, especially when one considers that I was not even five years old when the band reached the end of their long and winding road.

The Other Ones | Brendan Byrne Arena | Setlist/Review

Songs that have asterisks are ones that Susan Tedeski joined in on.  I don't even think they announced her at the show, b/c the whole time we all kept saying, who is that???  and she really didn't do much for the songs.  i would have at least expected her to stand out a bit during estimated prophet, but she didn't do the donna-back ups the way you'd expect.

The Dead @ Red Rocks | 6/15/04

Driving down from Boulder on HWY 93, our VW Bus and every one coming from the north were treated to a wicked lightning show.  It’s funny, but my friends and I often joke about leaving our little bubble in Boulder,  driving into Jefferson County, seeing the factories and sprawl instead of our lovely open space.  Most of the drive is really pretty though. But the city council in Golden hasn’t a clue, they have some of the loveliest geography in America, and instead preserving it, they have turned much of into cookie cutter America.  But I digress…
