After more than four years of heavy, year-round touring, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir have decided to put their band Furthur on hiatus in 2014. After the four night Furthur run in Mexico in January, the band will take the rest of 2014 off so that Phil and Bob can focus on their countless solo projects.

I, for one, hope this translates to solo acoustic Bob shows in my hometown.

I would love to, but I do have work that day. But let me know when/where and I'll do my best to make it! If not, I'll see you at the show!

Same goes for Bob. Be he a bit younger!

I personally think the "weir here" sessions, and the Terrapin Crossroads shows/jams are much better anyway. These guys are showcasing some talented musicians that you may not get to see everyday and they seem to play a little more inspired too. Love the couch Q&A with Bobby and Co. He has some great stories!! I gotta think Phil getting to play with his kids has to be pretty awesome as well. The Music Never Stops.....

Makes me double glad I snagged seats for the last night at red rocks. I never thought they'd still be touring in 2013... but I thought the stones would have retired 20 years ago, so what to I know. I'm grateful and fortunate to relive some of my late 70's and early 80's musical awakening.

So true. Said the same thing when I saw the Stones and the Who back in '97-98. Guys just keep on rollin.

There's a difference between musicians who do it to make a living and the ones who do it because their souls command them to do so.....the latter don't understand the concept of retirement. As the late, great Warren Zevon once said, "I'll sleep when I'm dead".
