Phish played their little hearts out again at the MANN tonight.
With a Wolfman's opener, they kicked things off. It was a good set with a nice long Mike's including "Horn" and "Farmhouse". They also played the nice, slow, funky version of "Llama" and a new song, "Waking Up Dead". Which I can totally relate to the title.
I just don't really have the heart to put into this review because the loss of Rob Wasserman has hit me especially hard. I met him at the Scaring the Children shows in SF and he was such a nice guy, in addition to him being a intuitive and amazing musician.
The second half had a Crosseyed & Painless" opener that led into a long jam that touched on a lot of different places before landing on a new song," Friends". Then the unmistakable rumble of "Down with DIsease" led into a slow jam that turned into a funky "What's the Use" and then the set just took a dive. The "Meatstick" and the "Line" which I like, but then came a song called "Tide Turns" and it led into "Backwards Down the Number Line" the show won't be making any best of lists, in my opinion. The follow-up of "Dem Bones" was one of those weird Phish moments that you'd have to see. I remember my mom singing me that song as a child. That was a weird addition to the set. They definitely turned it around for the encore of "Dear Prudence" and "Harry Hood" but leaving i still feel the first night was the champion of the run. It would be great to see "Dear Prudence" make it into regular rotation and who knows, there's still a lot of tour left to put on the books.
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. I don't do it to lessen anybody’s experience, I am just one person who has perspective and passion. But, Houston we have a problem. I realize they are only two shows in and it's been an emotional week for the band. I am such a fanatic that I gave both shows good reviews because buzzed, excited and in all good company I heard what I wanted to. Upon further review, I have listened to both nights a few times sober and they are less than stellar. In fact, they are a train wreck with moments of the morphine you get after the metaphorical crash. To be blunt, they sound like the band we all were afraid of when we first learned of Mayer’s involvement. I was worried about John being tired after his demanding schedule. It’s much more than fatigue, he has lost his chops al…
Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. 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…
