Russo is a sick drummer and this band is just going to get better. I would rather hear JK sing Reuben than Bob sing Days between. I have noticed Bob playing alot of GD bobby style too. Can't wait for Manchester! Rusty the Scoob we are going to party...
Yes we are!
I totally agree with JSM above. It's my favorite post-Jerry lineup so far (although I'm listening to a 2007 P&F with heroin era Trey which is in the running) - but you can't really compare it to any Jerry era. Why was I born so damn late?
If you are talking about 10-20-07 Glens Falls Civic Center than your wrong about two things.
1.) Trey was not junked out. He was actually living in Saratoga Springs and attending rehab. From what I hear from local friends who attended rehab with him, he is serious about it this time and seems to be happy. He was like a powderkeg that night as he hadn't played out in over 6 months.
2.) If it was that show, you can absolutely compare it to The Grateful dead. I only got to see 24 shows with Jerry(22 Dead, 2 JGB) dating from 88-94, but that show of P & F from 10-20-07 really stands up there. Its definitely better(IMO) than anything post 1993.
