Yes that was a great song at the beggining bu in finals days it was horrible, they couldn't even sing it, or at least the shows I have listened, I get sad when I listen that great song played so terrible, just like in the last days

Hard to believe there's no love for U.S. Blues!!! Hello? LAST CHANCE TO DANCE. Anyone ever see the GD Movie? "Rail Guy" sure is having a good time.

You give me some rails and I can find alot of things enjoyable. . . . but to anyone who doubts US Blues, check out the vid of Jerry doing windmills.

these songs are all good. only one i didnt get into was Revolution cuz they flubbed the lyrics so often.

yeah, the best memory I have of the guys flubbing lyrics was one of those times when they decided to play Stir It Up. It seemed to me neither Bob or Jer knew exactly how it went. One of the worst, was the last Touch of Grey at Soldier Field. Seriously, I cant help but cry listening to that. Such a magnificent man reduced to such levels. I hope there isnt heroin in heaven. :smile:

brokedown is my faveorite closer, it just brought everybody together, and sent them off happy to the parking lot

I'll go with Brokedown as a fav too, I prefer Jerry's sometimes style of slinking out with a slow burner.

Johnny B. Goode is one I've never really liked the dead doing, maybe since the song is so familar anyway and others have covered it to better effect imo.

I would have to choose useless blues myself only because Juan in my band did it either as a set closer or an encore. or bid you good night. I love the tune, but have had to sing it too many times. we are talking beating a dead horse here. :x :x :x :x :x

I do love day job from the bottom of my heart and might have pulled that out if I had thought my band mates might have let me live.
