There is no stopping Dead and Company after another stellar show in Detroit, Michigan.
There is no stopping Dead and Company after another stellar show in Detroit,Michigan. Setlist and Recap
The boys of summer can actually get a senior citizen discount. Who could have predicted the quality of music Dead and Company keep delivering each show? Only scheduling 3-4 shows a week was brilliant, as it keeps Bobby and the Devils fresh. Tonight, they rolled into Detroit, Michigan and kept with traditional GD openers with the coveted"Jack Straw". It almost evolved into a reggae jam before returning to form. They kept with the blues bust outs with" Big Boss Man" finding its way back into the setlist. Dylan's "When I Paint My Masterpiece" was next and sounded so sweet. I really have missed this song. The set also included a spirited"Sugaree" before ended with the classic "Don't Ease me In" to close a solid first set.
The second set is real interesting on paper and the fact they made it crackling is a nod to this band's greatness. They can make any songs epic or dance together. Case in point, the first part of the second set. "Playing in the Band" into "Estimated Prophet" then it bled into an unusual second set"Cumberland Blues"into "Truckin'" before jamming their way back to "Playing in the Band". WoW! "The Wheel" cane out of Space into the second "Dear Prudence"of the summer. "Casey Jones" closed the smoking, if unconventional second set. "Johnny B. Goode" sent everyone to Alpine Valley content and carefree. This magical summer tour marches on.

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…
