Bobby opened a book and the name popped out at him? Sheeeeit! Bobby was using the name Furthur for his Ratdog headlined festivals in the 90's, the few years after Jerry died.
How is that the same thing?
As for them being a cover band, they most certainly are a cover band. How are they not? They are basically playing the repertoire of another band. THAT is a cover band.
Shakin, can we PLEASE drop this 'cover band' issue? Its been debated, argued about and all that before. It's always going to be possible debate whgen discussing Furthur. But quite frankly.... you're wrong. Dead wrong, to be exact. Furthur is a SPIN OFF, not a cover band. There are ORIGINAL GD members in Furthur, thus it cannt be a 'cover' band. Just like TOO, P & F, Ratdog, Bk3, Rhythym Devils, and all that. They are SPIN OFFS.....
And, FYI< just because you a hater, don't mean ya need to spread your hate. This a FURTHUR COMMUNITY. Don't liek Furthu? Go away. Stop listening. DOn't buy ticekts. Leave teh scene to us that actually care.
