Why does Bill Kreutzmann dislike Furthur?

#8505 3 years, 3 months ago
Read his comments about them being just a cover band, but 7 Walkers is doing the same thing. Just wondered if anyone
had any idea how all this started?

Billy K is jealous he didn't get asked to be with furthur. Phil and Bobby wanted fresh musicians to take this furthur. I take nothing away from Billy K he is a amazing drummer but papa mali is a terrible vocalist (my opinion)

This. Mostly that's it. He just wants to go in a different direction. He still loves Phil and Bobby. I really believe the quotes were
taken out of context. 7 Walkers has been a huge success. Not on the level of Furthur, but enough to make him happy. And
anything that sells more Grateful Dead music, is just money in the bank for him. He's having fun. Good for him.

furthur is great and they are what everyone was waiting for as post - jerry group.

dead in 2009 just didnt cut the mustard. they sounded like a bad cover band.


7 walkers is dope. yes, they are covering dead tunes but they have some amazing original songs and the talent mix is right on.

good call Chester (iso here ). i think billy is happy doing what he's doing, and like a lot of other people they have yet to really see the creativity furthur is bringing. it's all good, as long as the music plays on..

I watched the bonus interview on the Grateful Dead Movie bonus disc. Billy states you have to be in really good shape to play this music. I don't think he's got the stamina to keep up with Furthur. Nor does Mickey.
