Ultimatelywhogivesafuck There is a long history of bands doing tributes to ther ebands with full concerts devoted to whole sets or even concerts to just doing a few tunes within a set of their own music. The DEAD themselves covered many outside tunes, as to a lesser degree those hardly known bands,The Beatles & The Stones. Good tunes never die they just go on and on. Don’t like? Don’t go. Where would we be without Gov’t Mule doing Zepplin and Stones tunes? Tunes don’t die with the end of the bands or the death of individuals or so many great tunes would be never heard again.

Ultimatelywhogivesafuck, i agree with you! IM a huge dead head, inside and out, but these people gotta stop just throwing players together and doin a tour based just on dead songs that are done a million times in a year. What about an all acoustic tour or just rarities or covers.. just not the same old same old….rob eaton and DSO have beaten this shit flat. Revue makes it sound like bluegrass, now that would kick ass!

How bout the Minnesota Orchestra doing Handel’s Messiah? I stand up for that too.
