I never liked "special guests". Especially unexpected ones. There has been a few exceptions but not many.

Although I wasn't there, I still think that Seattle show may have been the best of the tour.

Louder,Prouder, and front and center this tour. He just keeps getting better and better.............


Furthur
100% of your daily psychedelic jams
*may contain artificial expectations*

John is the real deal, blending his modern era playing style with the traditional "jerry-esq" sound. He really is an artist in his own. People need to get past the "fake jerry" bullshit, Jerry died almost 20 yrs ago and he "Would LOVE this Band"

John K Band NEEDS TO DO a full swing MD>Pitt>Columbus>CHI (area) x2/3 >Madison>Des Moines>KC>COx3>then either go NW or SoCal for a few more dates ending up at TXR and playing with Phil and Friends=Furthur minus Bob + Jackie Green for a 3 night run.

thank you. I liked everything you had to say. That's the whole point of the group experience I guess, we help each other keep things in perspective. Much love, Cat Dancer

i love this whole band. John is fantastic.

When I explain to people that I flew from Toronto on friday to LA to see two shows and then drove to Santa Barbara for a third, then drove to LAX and flew back on Monday, they can't get their head around it (if they don't know already).

They can't get how I saw all different songs that i loved for 3 hrs a night as it's something they don't think of when they think of rock concerts, that I had no problem being at shows alone (certainly not the first time i've seen Furthur or GD alone) and why I would do it all.

It's okay they don't get it. It's not for everyone.
I feel deep down that we're lucky to have this unique and special relationship with these guys and this community in our lives. We must never take it for granted and be loving and respectful of all the work and care it takes to make it happen.

It includes the band and everyone there. Couldn't be a nicer place to be with a nicer bunch people.

I love the comments on this page. Thanks.

Well said SaintStephen. I would have done the same if I lived in Toronto. You know there is an old saying among deadheads.

"Some ask, why play Grateful Dead music??
For those that know, no answer is necessary,
For those that don't, no answer is possible."

Dude, I totally know what you mean! I saw three shows (sd,la,sb) and drove alone for the first time to GD or furthur.... I hate leaving that little microcosm of what our world could be like... The whole band seemed much tighter than last year, and John was kick ass! I couldn't believe how it sounds like hes playing pedal steel on his guitar on songs like Pride, etc... Cant wait for next year, hope to do red rocks and hear broken arrow...

Indeed! I've been listening to the tour and can't wait for the band to come around east again. John sounds great.

Well said -- I know what you mean about not wanting to leave our little piece of how the world could be. I am so very grateful to find it again after all these years. These guys played some incredible music & the X factor was totally there on 10/7/2012 in SB. It has been almost a week since the show and it hasn't worn off at all. It feels good to feel so good and see all the good people and hear all the good music! I know that's not very eloquent, but it's the only way I know how to say it . . .

You said it -- so happy to be someone that doesn't have to ask! And that's not to say that I don't love enjoy the huge body of work that all these musician's offer in addition to -- but man it was good to be home!
