The music and the whole scene / party is still strong with furthur, but there does seem (to me at least) to be a shift in the fan base, at least here on the east coast. Feels like less hardcore fans and more balloons at the shows. Or perhaps it's me "growing up" (pushing 50 here, been seeing the boys live for 30 years). Wow, what a Long Strange Trip it's been.

I'm not sure about the drugs of choice nowadays. With my dayjob it's just 420 for me, but it seems less people are tripping face...I'm sure they are there, but seems more low key. Perhaps that's survival in the new world?

Did anyone mention the goosebumps they get when certain jams come on... Furthur is special to me.... I love how when you are listening to a cd in the car and the jam always goes with the bumps in the road and curves

It's that five mins or so just before they go on , there is a feeling in the air like at that moment anything can happen . Gets you pumped and everyone starts to make some noise . Then everything else is gravy .

Youth infusion. Better song selections. And a kickass drummer..aka "The octopus". Awesome sound + light systems doesn't hurt either. And the number one reason is .....BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!
