So Mickey posted on Facebook...

#110525 2 years, 9 months ago
..."Jerry would just LOVE this band," speaking of his own band. Do you all think this is true? Call me cynical, but I just saw that post as a desperate cry to get people to come see his band, and I am not sure how I feel about invoking Jerry's name for such a cause. I still love Mickey, but I do not feel right after reading that.

I disagree. And I do think Jerry would love his band. Jerry and Mickey were brothers. Nothing wrong with him saying that.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

I understand the cynicism, but I think this is the best solo project Mickey has had. There's so much heart and skill in this group that it's hard to think Jerry wouldn't have liked it.

Well Mickey would know better than any of us what Jerry would have liked...

Billy said the exact same thing about 7 Walkers. It's just a comment and not anything that would effect how someone feels about the band.

Have you seen the show with this band?

It was exceptionally unique and interesting.

7 Walkers sounds real good and I think Jerry would dig it. Certainly I'd think Billy or Micky's stating Jerry would support one of their side gigs is probably an understatement. The Fat Man had a lot of heart, real humble for such success, IMHO. I wish I could have made Micky's gig in Aspen, CO.

My point was never that Jerry would not have approved of Mickey's band, just that I thought that Mickey's post was somewhat manipulative. My own feeling, and I just wanted to air it out. As I mentioned in the original post, I am not bagging on Mickey at all, just a little bothered by the post.

He could just be honestly fired-up about his band...maybe wishing that Jerry could see/hear his band. Just a thought, but I

respect your view as well.
