Cool, I hear they hired Mickey Hart to handle security.

Nic October 12, 2012, 15:03:38

Yeah Mickey is in charge of security and his dad is in charge of counting all the money

Oh great, three nights of your favorite generic grateful dead covers. They should spell “audience is a group of suckers” with the setlist.” Then we can all say here how brilliant that was.

And during set break they could gang bang norma and s/he could tell us how wonderful it was… I don’t care much for the dead, but when I do care I care more than I do for norma… be well my friends…

75% of there songs are covers…25% are songs written by Robert Hunter.. The problem is the ACID is WAY to WEAK these days..Just tryin to imagine all the spinners in the 80’s stopping to go on facebook..GET HIGH..LOVE MUSIC..MELT YOUR FACE OFF... i just knocked down your recording shit and threw up on your blanket

Phil and Bob obviously wanted in on the DSO moneymaker (at the cost of some integrity). Ratdog and Phil and Friends just weren’t doing well enough with the numbers or at least not as well as they wanted and certainly not as well as the “leading” cover band. If u ask me they sold out big. Its a shame for those of us who have been defending the GD’s work for years to people whom were calling them a nostalgia act even when Jerry was still alive. Not to mention $$Furthur$$‘s* tour scene is a complete joke. If I see another little kid wearing a baseball had sideways being dragged along by a pit bull I might break. Phil and Bob obviously don’t mind providing habitat for suburban bred kids to play gangster without the dangers of actually being around real gangsters. When i was a kid going on GD tour was certainly not the same thing as joining a gang. Phil and Bob are parents so i really don’t understand why they would foster that kind of scene. I always thought Phil at least had better things to do. The good news; $$Furthur$$ financed Terrapin Crossroads where Phil is making REAL music at least SOME of the time. Bob opened TRI. These are worthy contributions to local culture here in the bay area and i suppose make the world a better place. Not that i think calling the pizza menu at TC ‘the wheel’ is really very clever at all. * Since I’m allowed to pick how the name of this band is misspelled I’m keeping the ‘U’ and adding dollar signs. it just seems appropriate.

Yes wookie, but if Jerry were alive today, he would understand the need for making money

Why are you hating ass faggots always on here? its about the grateful dead and playing the greatest pieces of music ever written plain and simple regardless of whose playing it. peace

Come on Wooker. Have you gone to any Furthur shows lately? They’ve been on fire the past two tours. Go talk to anyone who was at red rocks and as if they “sold out”. Sure, acid might be too weak, I don’t doubt that. But to say that there is not moments of transcendence and consciouness raising at these shows is laughable. Sure, if you’re just there getting drunk off your ass it’s going to be “whatever” and not as enjoyable as it could be. But if you go with the right mindset and so forth you’ll realize you are an integral part of the experience that night. Not to mention the band really gets a kick out of a crowd that gets all riled up and supah high. Bobby and Phil were already multi-millionaires well before Furthur started. Sure, money was probably a part of it, but they have enough. They wouldn’t be playing together if they didn’t at least enjoy it more than half time. And wookie I’m a suburban white kid who goes to shows but I don’t play gangster. I’m not there to sell drugs. Somebody’s got to though. There’s bad aspects of the scene, but that’s not really furthur’s fault. I see plenty of wook ass wannabe gangsters at phish lot too.

Ditto on Skeeterino8’s post. Don’t be such haters. We need not judge…we were once young and ignorant. Hell, some of us were even stupid! Enjoy the music!

kramer595 October 22, 2012, 12:15:42

Really people if you dont like it then very simple- Dont fucking go. Stop posting negative reviews on here.

bryan October 22, 2012, 17:57:06

Look, as a “90’s kid(91 until the end and beyond into the futhur, Phil and friends, and ratdog era.) I understand being the new kid on the block. We did dumb shit . Last REAL tour sound familiar? Torn fences in Highgate, torn down wall in deer creek, etc. But we still had respect these kids now don’t have. They are over compensating 4 not seeing jerry. All that aside, the boys are the boys and I will always do shows no matter how many “grateful gangsters” are there. (~);}

Of course they do it for money! It’s a job!!! Tix are not expensive! They have been doing this for over 47 years!!! Are they supposed to get jobs in little cubes? They love to perform and provide those of us who still listen to, actually listen to it and love it for what it is! Beautiful songs! And yes, the acid sucks!

Tennessee November 16, 2013, 11:09:58

btw, spanky, YOU may have had respect, but the peeps tearing down fences and walls DIDN’T!!! We were all young and dumb, YES, but usually hurt ourselves, not others. It’s about the MUSIC and how that transcends us…..enjoy the ride! DON’T ruin it for others…
