If you enjoy the moment by being in the moment and not engaging in mind comparisons you'll see it for what it is and enjoy the beauty of it. Go easy brother

it seems like a comparison of two current bands to me not a comparison of what was. rather, what is.

zeno marx--are you a musician?

bxorain--is that the orpheum in beantown?

Yeah man, that is the Orpheum, caught a 3 run show in the same seat, 3rd row. Loved every moment! Ever been there?

An ex-drummer who could read a bit of sheet music (probably looks more confusing than Cyrillic at this point). So, no, I'm not a musician. Just someone who loves sound, sounds, and isn't instrument-centric. In other words, I'm just as interested in Hans Bennink ripping into a set of pots or Zakir Hussain manipulating the tabla as I am with John Bonham getting all lyrical with his kit; even more the case with the guitar, because I've never been one who is into solos or basic language. It's why I really like the way the Japanese interpret the guitar into so many different animals.

It's inevitable that JK is compared to Jerry though as HE'S PLAYING JERRY PARTS ON JERRY SONGS ! He actually plays the Jerry role more than the other guys who've stepped into that spot whereas Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes did their own thing for the most part.

P&F and Furthur are two Dead cover bands. Let's be honest. So, to ask which one is better is a totally legit question. I bet everyone who's listened to both has an opinion on this. AND IT'S OK !

No question about it: Furthur. I just listened to last nights show and although it is o.k. its no furthur. What most people say is more experimentalism I hear as rough, like a garage band.

Okay, I'll be honest. I don't think either are Dead cover bands when they're playing GD-written, and GD-arranged traditionals, but at their worst, they are cover bands of classic rock radio when they fill time with songs their contemporaries wrote. This is going to sound harsh, but even when said without malice, saying Phil, Bob, Phil/Bob, Bill, or Mickey are playing in cover bands because they're playing songs they helped create, hone, and grow is both derogatory and a shortcut to thinking. I enjoy the JGB about 1/20th as much as the GD, so I'm more than comfortable putting my head on the block like that.

Just gotta say: what about "Reflections" or "Cats Under the Stars". Not saying I like JGB more than The Dead, Furthur, Phil+ or Ratdog, but those are phenomanal albums that should be in any heads arsenal. Again, no hard feelings just saying.
Sometimes the songs that Weir
are just songs of our own
