First off, i don't care what you think about me. Lets get that out in the open right now.
I didn't come here to "get a reaction" or to start shit, i just put my opinion out there like everyone else. Grow up. Yea yea i'm a bit harsh, maybe john and the rest of you should grow some thicker skin.
To answer the question "would you rather them just quit?" Answer: Yes. I would. I liked ratdog, and phil & friends better.
Maybe i just have the luck of catching furthur on off nights? I don't know. They don't do it for me.
So say what you want about me but just remember, i'm just being a critic and typing my opinion. Iam not here trying to change your mind, don;t try and change mine.
If you are going to try and insult me then put a lot of thought into the words you choose, i get paid to argue and win so proceed with caution.
dude, I'm sure of one thing, you are an idiot with an idiotic opinion, you do realize the dead's music was constructed in a way to allow jerry to "shine" in his own way? (think estimated prophet e.g.), you do realize bob and phil are keeping the good vibes going that they started 40 years ago ? you do realize ratdog was better than nothing, but totally sucked compared to furthur, right?
go hate somewhere else, this board is for spreading the love and good vibes furthur brings, not your "fake jerry" bs
ps, I saw over 80 GD shows from 83-95, over 20 JGB shows and some weir projects also
"I get paid to argue and win", how's that law degree working for ya, ambulance chaser ??
Not Sure- Wow. Keep trying is all I can say-like others have said-the magic is there. To each his own though but you don't have to be an asshole about it man and shit all over John on a FANsite. BTW I saw DSO 2 months ago and did not like it, didn't feel it at all but I ain't going to slam them this shit can be so subjective to mood, set and setting. You must have wondered at different times during your 250 shows(?) if the inevitable lackluster show(s) was a sign the the good old GD were outta gas, or you or they were burned out, or whatever any myriad of things would lead to an unsatisfactory conclusion. I remember listening to Jerry(the interview before the latest meet-up @movies I think it was-talk about wanting to kill Phil because he was ruining it, fuckin up, Jerry was pissed but later when he played it back he realised it was HIS headspace, the music was good and Phil was not the problem at all.
Kevin, I would have agreed with you on your opinion about Ratdog after I recently listened to the 98 show from slims (yawn-barely any lead guitar-luv the horns though) but I kept digging around mainly cause illuminaughty is so passionate and from what I saw at TRI, but anyway last night and today has been all about,
I don't know if it was the peculiar energy I've read about at RedRocks or what but for me this show is the cat's pajamas, great mix of blues, jazz, horns, lead guitar, Bobbys voice, great music by any standard I'd say. Makes me sad on what I potentially missed out on every year when I thought Ratdog was just out-there being what I, wrongfully am happy to find-at least so far, thought was probably GDlite.
