Some how I feel this is it for the band. Gossip dictates Phil is leaving and making other plans. As John Lennon says:
"Life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans".
actually that Phil leaving rumor was put to rest over a week ago. look at the home page of this site it says "Furthur will say goodbye to 2011 AND RING IN 2012 with a three night run ....."
the new rumor is more multi night runs on the east coast for spring 2012!
