Oh, for Pete's sake..historically speaking, that would be a new trend
If you want music w/o politics, hanging around Phil or any of these guys is a bad choice

Hey Phil, do what you want. It's up to us to adapt to you, not the other way around.



It's not a demand just a suggestion Jr.

Being ((on the bus )) in 03 maybe you are not familiar with the Grateful Deads long standing tradition of not taking

a PUBLIC POLITICAL stance. And being that the band was founded during the most turbulent time in American history

since the civil war it was something I always admired. They took the position of being just MERE MINSTRELS and not

a mouth piece for anyone but themselves.

The first really political song they ever wrote and performed was in 82 or 83??? Throwing Stones.


I don't know what the rest of your post even means, but I do like this section. Thanks for the history lesson, even if it's not entirely true and stuff. Since they wrote a political song in 1982, they can't rock a bumper sticker in 2011?

The Dead got back together for Obama. If that had not happened this Web page would not exist. There should be Obama stickers everywhere! If you take the time to look he has done some really good stuff, especially if you consider the mess he was handed.

Who are we to say what these guys should or should not play. I am just incredibly grateful that they are playing together. This is much better than then the Dead with Warren, and much better than Ratdog or Phil and his friends.

Lastly If you don't like it don't buy the ticket, just stay home and listen to the records. Your choice.

How would Furthur not exist if The Dead hadn't gotten together for the Obama gig?

Makes no sense at all.

I agree with the let the band do what they want, so I think it's funny you say they should have more Obama stickers on stage and then in the next breath say people shouldn't tell them what to do.
