Will the DSO celebrate that monumental achievement by replicating an actual Dead show or will the do an “original show” where they just play Dead tunes randomly? Either way, everyone loses. August 23, 2014, 01:37:02

That ‘retarded guy that imitates Bobby,’ Rob Eaton, has taken it upon himself to catelog and digitize THOUSANDS of GD tapes that have languished in storage, and would hBe never seen the light of day otherwise. Say thank you, you fucking twit.

Jillies must be the post-op version of DJ Damage

This lineup kicks ass. The Wheel they played at Summerfest last year was huge. Some of the best played Dead music around yall.

Say what you want about his performance in DSO, everyone has an opinion. But Marz is correct about Eaton and the ton of good quality dead shows we have because of him. On the best dead recordings were either done by Charlie Miller or Rob Eaton.
