Chris Robinson and Bill Walton Guest with RatDog in L.A.
Chris Robinson and basketball Hall of Famer/longtime Grateful Dead fan Bill Walton sat in with Bob Weir & RatDog last night at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. The Black Crowes/Chris Robinson Brotherhood frontman took up vocals on renditions of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle” (a song that was famously covered by The Crowes) and Bobby Bland’s “Turn On Your Lovelight,” while Walton joined in on hand percussion.
Last night marked the first time that RatDog had ever performed “Hard to Handle,” while the show also saw the band’s first “It’s All Over Now” since September 2, 2009.
