Un-phreakin'-believable! These guys rock so hard it's scary. I also just want to say, that at age 66, Phil should truly be an inspiration to us all. His playing ability just gets better and better, his vitality, the fun and joy he is obviously having, it all is just wonderful to see.
Plus, Phil has really gotten back to the root of the Grateful Dead ethic, I think, in that it is all about the adventure. These guys are putting it all out there very show, and while it's true that sometimes, some monumental jams end up sort of sputtering out abruptly, that's all part of the risk and beauty in it.
I also give him props for letting the players in his band really shine and take leading roles. And I know alot of people don't like Joan Osborne, but you know what? She gets it, she does. And she is obviously, like everyone in Phil's band, digging the hell out of it. So glad I made it!
Out of the loop? I didn't know there was a loop!
