they sound great. warren is the man!

Jeez, I miss Jerry. That song does not sound right without him being on it. I'm sorry guys but this is just a shame. I guess it is good for those of you who never got to see the Grateful Dead but keep it in perspective. This is like seeing The Clash without Joe Strummer or Mick Jones, The Who without Daltry or Townsend, U2 without Bono or the Edge.

Enjoy nonetheless

the fact that this is tagged "hippies" is pretty f'n funny.

The Dead Played the View. I never thought I would see that headline. I guess they're trying to help sell tickets and this live album, but doesn't doing The View just seem so wrong for this band?

Joy Behar probably doesn't even know who they are...cunt.

Can someone stick a sock in Phil Lesh's mouth to prevent him from trying to sing. For a guy who is such an incredible musician, he is completely tone-deaf to the sound of his own voice. I mean, he is worse than most regular PEOPLE, no less a professional musician.

Bob Weird really needs to shave

30 people i know didnt win

Any number on how many people entered the contest for tickets? It was announced very hastily, and the few actual intense Dead fans I know (a few of whom are active Deadheads online) had no idea/had not heard about it at all until I mentioned the contest to them.

Hope anyone who goes tonight to the shows has a good time!

wow weir looks like Jerry now. So out of the dead loop.

Roseland holds what, 4 or 5 thousand and they gave away 810 tickets?? 100 each to the other shows??? Whos getting the rest of the tickets? They get everyone excited about a ticket giveaway but it turns out they are giving out about 20% of the tickets. What a pile of crap. In other words, I didn't win either. And I sure miss Jerry too.

"Can someone stick a sock in Phil Lesh's mouth to prevent him from trying to sing..."

He's Phil Lesh. He can do whatever the fuck he wants, whether it's singing or punching overcritical douchebags in the yambag.

When I heard Phil and Bobby play FOTD with Jackie Greene at the Great American Music Hall in SF last month, I was a little put off by Phil's "new" verse: "You can borrow from the devil, you can borrow from a friend. But the devil will give you twenty when your friend got only ten."

However, my apologies to Phil. There it is in Robert Hunter's lyrics book A Box of Rain. Yay!

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerry!

After hearing Phil "sing" Morning Dew at the Family Reunion at Alpine Valley, I wish he would just play his bass. After hearing Phil badmouth Jerry in interviews "He loved the drugs more than he loved the music." makes me cringe every time I hear him plead for my liver to be donated to some rock star who destroyed his. Maybe Ringo will get a transplant and the next version of Phil and Friends will be THE NEW LIVERS with Crosby, Lesh and Starr!

I didn't win shit

I really enjoyed seeing the Grateful Dead but this is horrible. Phil can't sing and Bob trying to look like Jerry. This is worse than they were the last time they toured. Time to retire. Plus, endorsing Obama was the last straw for me. I won't be giving them anymore of my money. I miss Jerry....

Wow
Can't wait
I am going to wear my new Bibhu Mohapatra!
Will be very hot, indeed...
Check it out

I saw Weir and Lesh with the Allmans Saturday. Phil is a sensational bass player but his singing is spotty at best.He does show signs of going deaf. He kept turning up Sat. like he just can't hear. Hey I've always been a big fan but Warren is no Jerry. His playing is just not adventurous enough. He wouldn't be my first choice. I'd pick Derek Trucks over him. He's a monster player.

did anyone notice the lyric change at the end by Phil??? "Borrow from the devil
Borrow from a friend
devil got 20 dollars
friend only got ten."

chorus

pretty cool anyone know anything about this?
