I can't imagine how it will sound without Jerry's guitar and voice. Both were so distinctive.

I was born in 91. I've seen the four of them play twice this will be my third time. I think I posted the audio of those two shows in a previous post. Of course not the same. Check it out

I've seen them more times to count.

That's what happens when you're old. Smile


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I'm in a situation where 90% of my favorite bands/musicians are either dead, retired, dying or about to retire.

Not a good place to be.

What a long strange trip...

It seems Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart...are planning something....the question is...

Will it just be a one time only event?

Will they tour?

Will I have to fly to San Francisco?

Will there be windowpane?

Only an empty one.

To be honest, I've never thought of either of them as being a great singer (or a partuclularly bad singer, either). Their singing is OK, but I don't listen to either band for the singing.

Jerry's voice always works best on the softer, more melancholy Dead songs. Like Brokedown Palace, Dark Star and Ripple...

Pigpen was probably the "best" singer out of all of them. But his voice works best on the bluesier stuff.
