Is Billy Kreutzman for Hillary?

NIce to see Phil the Cat and Weir playing together again. Maybe they can find a way to make peace and settle their differences over the Dead's archive.

I like the guy who commented that the Dead are a "flavor of the month" band. Yea man, the Dead have had zero to do with timeless influence on just about every band in your ipod. Wake up and get used to it, the Dead will show their might increasingly as our culture becomes more learned.

I hate little kids with no knowledge of music history or rock 'n' roll and the way they throw in their worthless two cents. They hardly even know what an album is and have never lived in a world w/out their Ipod. Kids today are most likely the least knowledgeable and least cultured ever unless you count MySpace and chat rooms as cultural centers.

I really dig the comments on "flavor of the month" and "no knowledge of musical history".
Even the comment about why Jerry no longer plays with the Dead, makes me laugh.
The only memory these spoiled and overindulged X&Y - genners have is hooked-up to a hard drive.
They think Coachella Valley invented the outdoor rock festival.
The only consolation here is they will all be stone deaf in two years if they keep listening to their iPods. There won't be any world for them to tune out.
Yeah...Bobby, Mickey, and Phil!
I think Billy's not there because he's a Republican, ha!
