Re: Why does Bill Kreutzmann dislike Furthur?

I hear you about Molo, he and Phil had formed such a core, moving together as one..it was special...hopefully this Terrapin Landing place will have those 2 playing together again. Billy K, too...with David Nelson again?

I had seen Russo in The Duo a few times and when his name came up it made perfect sense, just a great choice that I never would have guessed. He's got it all, quick fills, big thunder, huge ears.

Are Molo and Russo both available at some point? I loved Molo when I saw him and I love Russo too. Might be the dynamic duo!

On Phil's birthday show at he SF Civic I believe those 2 played together for one set if I remember it correctly and it was pretty dynamic, that duo.

I'll love to hear Billy K searching for the Hawaiian sound to reflect his love of the islands some day. In SF we have a Hula Days weekend event and it's turned me onto some very cool island rhythms-melodies, not to mention the mind blowing dancing. I thought about Billy last year during a drumming segment.

In the mean time, it was cool to see photos of Billy in NO w/Papa last year for Jazzfest, munching on crawfish and soaking it all in... The cultural cross pollination is a good thing and just seems to go on and on..

To the gentlemen who thought the dead 09 was a bad cover band I say Myabe your right on the whole, but I bought the l.a download and I thought it was awsome and I was so pissed I underestimated them as I was only down in san diego

More important for me than the critical Furthur comments, was Bill's comment after the 2009 Dead tour:
"I was bored toward the end of it".

Well, unfortunately . . . it kinda showed in your playing, too.

I'm glad he's out there playing some new music, from a musical standpoint he definitely needed a change. And from a musical standpoint, I'm sure Bob and Phil just wanted a drummer who was into it as much as they are.

I don't know if the comments were sour grapes or taken out of context. But I do know that saying Furthur should have gotten a great lead guitar player like Warren is not only a hurtful comment toward JK, but its also one of the most ignorant things I've ever heard. Has he ever heard JK play? I don't see how you make a comment like that if you've seen JK in action.

I was at Rothbury in 2009 -- the last show they all played together. It was fantastic, with fireworks on the 4th of July (one more Saturday night).

I got the sense that everyone in the band really enjoyed that show. Phil was beaming with a happy smile.

I may be in the minority here but I absolutely loved The Dead with Warren! He is one of the best guitarists ever to grace a stage with the band and his vocals to me are equally as good. Yes, the vibe was different than the typical GD vibe but to me that was the draw. JK has has taken us back to a time a lot of us younger heads missed which is grate in it's own way and has really taken on it's own character as well. The music that Jerry, Robert, Phil, Bobby, Mickey, Bill and so many others came together to create was so original and diverse it is only natural to continue to explore it.

Guys like JK, Warren, Rob B, Trey, Keller etc etc will all make sure the music never stops long after the original crew gets to terrapin!
