Re: I want Ratdog back

illuminaughty it is nice to know you like reggae groovess, an inaudible bassist, and a weir so drunk he can barely sing

i prefer the fresh innovative approach furthur takes to the music and their love for really taking it "furthur",i saw many ratdog shows some were good but i can't think of one that will stack against a furthur show

really though dude, i'm saying this for your own mental health and well being, if you don't dig furthur, don't come around here..if discourse is what you're looking for, there are plenty of other message boards packed with it...i respect you don't like furthur, that is fine, you aren't the only one, but please, don't stoop your level to troll, attention wanting status..it's just..well...sad dude...
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

If you think Furthur is a cover band, than so is GD, Ratdog, The Q, etc. It has the original members in it!! I think some people have no clue what a cover band really is. Look it up before you post so you don't make yourself look more like a fool...
Those who hear not the music. . . think the dancers mad.

I like Ratdog, but I LOVE Furthur. The vibe surrounding the band is beautiful. What's w/ the comparisons??? Who cares about anything other than the fact that when this band is playing music, I, at least, feel REALLY happy. I think that's magic!!
A lot of us here feel that way.
Anyone who doesn't feel that way doesn't have to see or listen to them!

If you feel the need to bash this band on a board that is for people that dig it, then I just feel sad you can't feel the love :/

Ratdog is nowhere near better than Furthur.Call me crazy but Bobby was the weakest link in his own band.Maybe because he sang all the songs.I never heard a sour note from anyone else in his band.He botched so many lyrics and hit too many wrong notes.Slowed the tempo too far down on too many occasions.That is all I have to say about that.

"thirty years upon my head to have you call me child..." 32 actually.
and yeah that means i never saw brent or keith, shit im lucky i caught the few shows i caught they were magical. i miss Mark Karans guitar style, jays druming, and kennys sax, and dare say i do miss wassy more than rob sylvester, but hell do for sure. now that jay is with primus it wouldbe a sick co bill primus and ratdog with jay drumming for both.
furthur rocks, i am actually a fan. i just prefer ratdog, as im sure some prefer different incarnations of phl and friends, and the dead or other ones. it is probably becuase i havent seen them in awhile. you know when ratdog was touring heaving a wished for a band with phil and bob that sounded more like the GD. i guese the grass is always greener.
BRING BACK THE DOG! WOOF WOOF(dosnt mean the end of furthur, calm sown)

I love Ratdog. I can't wait to see them again. Not ever going to compare them to Furthur, like so many others do.
I love Furthur. I'm going to be happy with what I have, rather than complain about what I don't have. And one more
thing, the Dog will run again. : )

I doubt you will ever see a fullblown Ratdog tour again.Bobby's got to pay for his studio and the Dog can't make the coin that Furthur can.Jay Lane seems happy to be back with Primus and Robin Sylvester has some health issues.But never say never I guess.

Your riight. It might not be exactly what it was, but the heart of the Dog will be there. And I do expect that, with Ratdog, as with
Furthur, the boys will slow down, and not tour quite as much as they once did. But I fully expect, the music will never stop.
