My first experiences were with Brent and I remember the transition experience from him to Vince being a complete and utter let-down.
Brent Mydland had such an energy onstage, and such an incredible talent with that B-3. He was one of a kind.
Vince brought nothing to the table and did NOT belong with that amazing group of musicians, IMO.
Never really thought Keith was GREAT, but he was solid and certainly had a WHOLE lot more to offer within the Grateful Dead spectrum than Vince. Would love to have seen some 75-78 shows....I was 9 tho.
