Mickey Hart Says Bob Weir is Fine

Mickey Hart had some positive things to say about Bob Weir during a recent interview with Hart spoke about a number of things during the interview, including his reworkings of old tunes and his work with Planet Drum. Towards the end of the conversation Hart spoke about Weir, saying: “Bob will be ok. He will be fine. He just needs to take a step back. He will be totally fine. He is totally fine. He needs the rest man. Hart continued, “He is my brother. We have a very, very, very, very — that’s four verys — deep bond. He will be all right. He just needs to rest.”

after what they did to vince welnick?

john kale May 20, 2013, 21:16:42

@kelly. Just what exactly is it that you think they did to Vince? I’m not dissing Vince here at all but anyone who slashes their own throat wide open has some problems of their own.
You’d do well to stick to things you know about.

once you reach 50 or so, recreational drugs don’t edify like they once did, jerry died because he was over- zealously quitting his jealous mistress of twenty years, not under his doctors supervision, in fact his dr. didn’t even know about it…if he had done it slowly he might still be with us… but he wanted out of that sordid relationship, bobby isn’t doing anything but pain/ muscle relaxants, for rotator cuff damage, where the ligaments holding the shoulder joint together are tweaked, esp after standing for hours on stage with a 7 lb + guitar every night for a month. that’s why he’s playing those tiny little guitars which don’t sound as good. he’ll be fine with rest and chinese herbs + acupuncture

Somebody get Bobby some Kratom to kick the oxy.
My son was hooked on the oxy and H, went to rehab for three months, and said Kratom was the best help of all. I sell Kratom and I have seen how much it has helped so many people especially, those who are hooked on Oxy. There are many brands of Kratom out there and I’m not just saying this, many of them are worthless. I am willing to send it to him for free and anyone else on here if they like. Go to and mention Wicky Wicky Dist for your free samples of Urban Ice Organic Kratom or Cascade Kratom.

There’s a lot of speculation on here and some nasty comments. I’m just happy to know Mickey and Bobby have a tight bond, Bobby is good to go, and the rest of it isn’t any of our business.

Ya don’t need a slab of meat unless u want to be the youngest to die. Wake up man. Jerry would still be with us if he had been a deadicated vegetarian instead of a chili dogian eggcreamian.
