Tour has just begun and I fear in a month Dead and Company could be done. An editorial by Kevin Long Image created by Van Rapp I take absolute no pleasure in writing anything negative about the one true love of my life.

One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
