That's what I was thinking - shows with Phil .. and maybe a vacation with wifey! Acoustic solo sets as well ...

edit: by acoustic solo set i meant that there is not quite the need for a keyboardist.

UM thats not Ratdog. Not even close. I'm sure it will be fun, but why use the moniker? Take away the lead guitarist, keyboardist, and sax player.......you've ripped the heart out of the ensemble known as Ratdog. I know for a fact Mark and Kenny would be there in a NY minute if asked......I don't know years on the road together (with us) its a slap in the face..this is NOT Ratdog.. Mark & Kenny deserve better,,,

Do you even know what you are talking about? I don't understand why people get so INSULTED when Bobby or Phil decide to play with certain people. Have you ever heard of the Ratdog Revue? Did you know that Mark and Kenny were "recent" additions to the band. Up until about '98, with the TOO tour, Ratdog was basically a blues band. At one point they had Vince Welnick. Johnny Johnson and a few others played with Ratdog throughout the years. Hell, even DJ Logic was in the band for a minute!

Ratdog IS NOT a set band. Never has been. Maybe the Mark, Jeff, Kenny, Robin lineup is all you know because they played together for about 6 years. What about Rob Wasserman? He is a founding member. Are they NOT Ratdog because Rob is not with them?

i know for a fact mark karan has been playing with terrapin flyer. for all anybody here knows, he's contracted into the next tour with them, and that might include both those dates on the other side of the country, where he would not be available.
