I would like to see "The Jerry Guy" from DSO play with the Dead when/if they get back at it.
I know I may catch alot of heat from that, but its kinda like, have you ever tried to bring a musician in to a dead cover or jam band who just really doesnt get it? They may be great musicians, but if they are not tuned in to the cosmic flow that we are tuned into, its really hard and hardly ever works. I like Phils band for that sort of "lets see where these guys take this" exploration, but with the big giant Dead monster, why not have somebody who knows where these songs go? He can still improvise, and so can the boys. Just much less train-wrecks.
And before anyone gets all upitty
about a cover band player not being worthy, Boracco and Hornesby were both Dead Cover musicians.
