Seriously, would anyone call for cutting Jerry out of some of his worst shows (of which there were MANY)?
The band is the band.. it is how they wished to be presented. Who the fuck are we to call their calls into question. Don't like Donna Jean... find another era.
While I fully understand the issues with Donna Jean, and know how off-tune she could be... what right do we have to re-master shows? The Boyz were magnanimous enough to let us have what music they made free of any restrictions (until the recent Bobby power grab)... you fuck with the recordings, you fuck with the historical record of the band we all adore. Warts and all.
Sorry... just my $.03 (adjusted for inflation).
ahmen brother. now i hate her random death cries as much as the next guy or gal, but i LOVE her addition to the band. I think there is alot of passion in her voice. I think her and bob are a nice pair
