Steve Kimock to Replace Jonathan Wilson in RatDog This August

Steve Kimock will replace Jonathan Wilson as RatDog’s lead guitarist this August. Wilson has bowed out of his scheduled appearances with Bob Weir and company due to a scheduling conflict. A note from Weir’s camp reads:

Due to scheduling conflicts, Jonathan Wilson can no longer join Bob Weir and RatDog at The Peach Music Festival in August. We look forward to having Jonathan for many more shows with Bob down the road. We are happy to announce Steve Kimock is able to join in his place. See you all there. August 16, 17, 18, 2013. Scranton, PA. Bob Weir Jeff Chimenti Steve Kimock Jay Lane Robin Sylvester Rob Wasserman.

Kimock has performed with RatDog many times over the years. Of note, he toured as the band’s primary lead guitarist in 2007 while Mark Karan battled cancer.

No disrespect to Mr. Wilson but that is a major upgrade.

I concur…no disrespect intended….but we still do not know why Mark Karan is not in the mix….I really liked him.

I agree with Chris but look forward to see Jonathan back east, he’s a carolina boy. Warren is king around here though. carolinaphil
