UNCONFIRMED: Bob and Phil have new band.

Talk about the recent Tours

UNCONFIRMED: Bob and Phil have new band.

Postby Grateful.Ed » Thu Aug 13, 2009 8:00 pm

Will debut Sept 18-20 at the Fox in Oakland.

Does anyone have any info on this?

My guess is no Warren. No Billy. Micky?....maybe Jackie Greene for Lead/Jerry Vocals?

Bobby mentioned a trying a quartet in an interview prior to the Dead reunion.

It's official! I know some will love it, some will hate it, and some couldn't care at all, but I'm excited about this!

this was a sore subject in the past. i for one have seen pretty much all the guitarist they have used. i have always been on the side in favor of this! but others have a different opinion. imagine all the tunes they couldn't do, they have the whole catalog back! this band will eventually have 2 well known drummers in it once their outside commitments are filled. then it it's on!!! :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

peace,

Wow - Very interesting & great for JK! Let's hope they let him sing! :smile:

They'd seemed to have done all they did in the past to NOT have a "jerry style clone". I guess they worked thru whatever issues that had 'blocked' that previously. Just 3 shows announced? Testing the waters maybe? Or scheduling issues?

WOW! This is pretty cool news. I sure hope they do more shows than announced. Man, John must be grinning ear to ear! What an awesome dream gig. I agree with Waldo too.

Peace.

So is there an actual press release to read or more info available about this? I went to Phil's site as mentioned but all that I saw was the video montage thing going on.

I'd hate to see them do something without Billy and Mickey - i thought those two were playing the best they had together for a long time the last tour in the spring.
Out of the loop? I didn't know there was a loop!

like dropping Mickey and Billy?

Good for John, though, that's a great accomplishment.

i believe Billy has other comittments right now, and rehearsel time most likely is a factor. it's only a 3 night run so if it did Tour, the possibility is still there that Billy and Mickey may be there in the future. Hearing JK mesh with Bobby is awesome, BUT with Phil is truely a treat. This band will, IMHO, will be THE JAMBAND to see!!!!

What a perfect name for them also! FURTHUR!

peace,
waldo

Who are John Kadlecik and Joe Russo?
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...
