Tonight will be my first time seeing them, and by them I mean Phil and Bobby. Yes I live in a cave.

Well , the thing is , everyone on this board has also shared the first timer thing at some point. For some , that may have been in the 70's, 80's, or 90's. Or for guys like me , I was only 15 when Jer passed. So when I started seeing Furthur a few years back , that was my first time cherry. And Furthur is the closest thing I will ever get to seeing the boys . For all the dudes who scoff at John K., what they don't rrealize is this is the closest guys like me ever get to the real experience.
Of course I don't think he's Jer, but its the best live thing I've got. And I'll happily take it . Rock on JK...


I also like to use that idea applied to playing the geet . At some point in thier lives, Jer , Bob, and Phil , couldn't play a single lick on guitar. That thought helps ground you a bit .
