once on further fest 96, my friends(i didnt tour that year) said Mickey came out and joined in the drum circle on the beach in Virginia.
I like so many others LOVE the Greatful Deads music, and have LOVED Ratdog, Otherones, Dead, Furthur, Phil and Friends, Rythem Devils(Kimock and Gordon was sick) and 7 Walkers and RD3 and everything else they do. Other bands just dont do it for me. I HATE going to festivals, just because one or two good bands are playin. THE BOYS SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN FESTIVAL ONCE A YEAR AND DO IT RIGHT!!!
Your right last year the boys did it right. I swear it's the best when you basically have a 3 day shakedown and you don't have to go home after the show. No cops telling you to leave.
