Larry Campbell To Sub For Jimmy Herring
Phil Lesh has confirmed that guitarist Larry Campbell will be joining his upcoming tour, stepping in for Jimmy Herring. In an announcement on his web site Lesh states, I had originally planned to mix up the lineup after New Years- but it turns out that, in order to take advantage of other musical opportunities that have come his way, Jimmy Herring will now be moving on a little earlier. Im sure that his new musical experiences will result in further growth, which is vital to a musician. Campbell performed in Bob Dylans band from 1997 through 2004, and Lesh likely saw him quite a bit during Phil & Friends/ Dylan co-bills that took place in 1999 and 2000. At present Herring has not yet released the details of his future plans.
