Stole this from Philzone

>>> ISN'T THE NAME FURTHUR ITSELF ABOUT PUSHING LIMITS? <<<

It's about pushing limits, not pushing buttons - big difference.




Sorry, for stealing this, just liked the phrase.

Anybody read the Relix article on Furthur?.......pretty interesting

According to it, Phil and Bobby were sitting around after arranging the band and Phil says "all we need now is a name" and then Bobby says "we already have a name, Furthur" and "that was it" they say "just like Jerry and 'how about the Grateful Dead?'"

Funny, how things work out that way.

Jerry opened a book and there was "Grateful Dead." Phil and Bobby are using the name Kn Kasey came up with for his bus 35 or so years ago. How is it even remotely the same?

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.

I'm not the one who said it was like the same time, Phil did and It's quoted in the Relix article.

You know like how people get deja vu? Thats what he meant, When Bobby said "we already have a name, Furthur" it was like the time when Jerry just out of the blue said "how about the Grateful Dead". Thats what he's saying. and nobody is saying that Bobby thought up the name either, everybody knows its the name of the bus.

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.
