And so it is...the 13th with Warren & Chimenti in State College. Seeya there TJedi!!! I am SOOOO there. Great compromise! I thought that would be a great venue (Beaver Stadium, not Bryce Jordan where the boys will play) for the "Winter Classic!" Pens v Cryers on New Year's Day @ PSU Football Stadium!!!!

I just realized that if they tour after January '09 that all of the election BS will be OVER and we can simply enjoy the music and the vibe as dog and Jerry intended. :cool:

Even though he's far from my 1st choice, at least its ONE lead guitarist. Two, and it either gets way too busy OR the ball is dropped way too often. You have one guy, and it rarely becomes a "whose solo is it?" situation.

God damnit why did they pick Warren? I hope if they do a tour they pick someone else instead, or add someone with him, I am a little dissapointed.

The tour I still consider pure speculation. If it does go down I agree w/Spacehead give the cat from DSO a shot!

I think it would be weird having someone like JK from DSO... does anyone really want to see them with someone trying to sound like Jerry? I don't.

my picks:

Mark Karan (the best post Jerry GD guitarist)
Jimmy H (pretty damn good at the Jerry licks)

I love Warren but not with the Dead (his solo acoustic Dead covers are great though)

YES!!!

I think the concensus is in that direction. I mean, c'mon, we're not talking Spinal Tap here. John from DSO for example has put his heart and soul into it. And he's good. That's what counts. You're not propping some schmuck up there and hoping to go back in time. Myself, and other old school heads are looking for the magic. And a big part of that magic comes with some attention to things like tone, and vocal stylizing, etc...

Barraco is a good example of someone who came out of the Dead cover scene and was embraced by the band. Howcome it can't be one of the many smokin' guitarists paying the same honor and respect to Garcia thoroughly with attention to detail?

Jeff Mattson, again, I'll say it, he's light years ahead of Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Steve Kimock, Larry Campbell, and others, in his ability to cop Jerry's style. Neither one of them are necessarily better. It's just a fit.

I saw Kimock a few months back and they were doing Eyes of the World. I literally had to split. I couldn't believe how whack it sounded.

Mark Karan. Does he even know what reverb is?

Jimmy Herring. Those octave slides and chord comping sound much better in another band.

I'm not slamming these guys. I play myself and I know what it takes to stay on top of the game. And even though it's a done deal, and it was said on another forum I believe, with Warren Haynes, it sounds like The Allman Brothers covering the Grateful Dead. Especially now that Weir is playing with so much gain it's just too much distortion on stage.

I enjoy the discussion though and glad everyone is chiming in so thoughtfully and passionately.

I'll be there on the 13th.

Now that I think about it, you know who'd make a great choice for LG is Mark Deamato (sp) from Zen Tricksters. That'll never happen, but I'll still enjoy seeing them with Warren.
