I love Hornsby.

He was my favorite keyboard player with the GD.

you should post a review after the show sometime...

he's coming or already came to CT (not sure) which I'm missing out on, gotta save some money. I would like to check him out someday, I especially like the shows I hear when he was with The Other Ones

<--- Jealous.

I've seen him quite a few times back in the mid -> late 90's but I haven't had the chance to see him since, much to my chagrin.

I am buddies with his nephew, though, who is quite a talented keyboardist in his own right. In fact, he was kind enough to pull together members of two or three different local Dead cover bands and surprise me with a "Dead" show for my 40th last year ... it really was the best birthday ever, which is a great thing to say at 40 (now 41).

Great bday, not much like that. Good friends having fun.

the noisemakers are a great band too.
he has really taken a step to not lean so much on keys in his most recent album, more guitar than previous hornsbey. love it all.

I can't come down, I've been set free.

I love Bruce and his own music very much. I really love him alot. And i think he sounded pretty good with the dead. But i have never heard, nor could understand the statement you just said. "He was my favorite keyboard player for the dead." No one could possibly come close to Brent , i mean, seriously how in gods name could you even say let alone think that. Brent was beyond amazing with the sound he produced from his organ. Blow Away, Gimme Some Lovin, his harmony's on Picasso Moon and so many songs he sang his heart out. Do you know who Brent Mydland even is?

That's the thing about saying someone is your favorite, you stand the chance of alienating other great players.

I appreciate your response. That's one of the things I was hoping to find here. Someone who loves the Dead enough to respond with such conviction. Good for you, and thanks for doing so.

I love Hornsby for the range of music he brings. He is all over the place with everything. Its not just all that pretty cool classical stuff he does. Its a sign of lifelong practice and mastery of the keys. When I realize that in him, then its as if everything he does is going to be great, and I hang on every note to see what's going to happen next. I love the Cajun groove he can bring, and I especially liked his solo's.

He is my favorite keyboard player for the Dead. Somewhere along the line I feel as if I have the right to feel that way.
