Is lead guitar a new version of the keyboard seat?

Yes, we'll dislike whoever is there at first then miss them when they are gone

No, it's not Jerry so they better toughen up and realize they will be critiqued
I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride!!!

Yeppers, I'm with you. Just enjoy what you can get. Personally, I'd love to see them go out with a killer horn player instead of a lead guitar.

I am so happy to see the "core" group back together and on the road again. I will enjoy seeing them live again regardless of who else is on stage with them.

"Dust of those rusty strings just one more time - gonna make 'em shine !"
Yes - just glad I will get to see them again.
Warren will be fine
He has quite the resume with a membership in the Allmans AND the Dead.

I like the idea of foregoing lead guitar player, and putting up a horn player or a pedal steel.
Was Hornsby ever asked to join in these festivities? He could easily handle some of those leads (not that Jeff is shabby by any stretch of the imagination)
