Wait, the Dead were not the best musically? I know that sometimes when they go off on their space jams it can be a little here or there, but that is the nature of improvisation, and overall they were some of the best musicians in their era. Percussion - Hart and Kreutzman, amazing (sure, not Neil Pert or Steve Gadd, but then who is). Bass - Phil Lesh, don't even argue. Guitars - Wier and Garcia, ummm yeah, say no more.

Meant to reply to this a while ago, got busy at work forgot about it until I was watching some stuff on the Dead over the weekend.

I agree they were some of the best musicians, however by the time I saw them in the 93-94 range Jerry was really far gone on the Heroin. Bret Mydland was already dead. They just were not the same as watching some of their earlier stuff from the 70's and early 80's. That is what I meant. Set list and solos seemed to turn darker and more experimental etc.

I mean I could listen to this all day but by the time the 90's rolled around it was too late.



I agree on that. I saw the Dead in the late 70s early 80s and they were amazing. I was just learning guitar at that time, and I used to be in awe of their guitar work. They inspired a lot of the way I play and improvise.

The absolute perfection of existence, life, and aesthetic beauty is the work not only of evolution but of a powerful being.

As a proud born and bred Brummie I had the pleasure of attending Black Sabbaths last ever gig at the NEC, Birmingham (Feb 17). Ozzie may not have the power in his voice anymore but he still owns the stage. Geezer used his bass in the colours of Aston Villa for Paranoid, at least half the crowd was happy with that.

I saw Kraftwerk last year at the Symphony Hall Birmingham. We all had 3D glasses to watch the projections behind them, absolutely amazing.

Arcade Fire's tour this year was also brilliant. The hairs are standing up on my neck just thinking about Wake Up and Sprawl II.

Coming up - Pixies at the Roundhouse in London. They are doing Surfer Rosa / Come on Pilgrim in its entirety.

Gotta love Peter Alliss!

How about a little slide in a different direction:

What are some concerts ya'll want to see coming up? What are some concerts you wish you could've seen?

Coming up I've got Dead & Co, Lynryd Skynrd, & DMB on tap. Toying with the idea of seeing Umphreys Mcgee at Red Rocks. Has anyone seen a concert there? I've heard it's worth it.

I'd love to see A Tribe Called Quest live but it's just not going to be the saw without Phife Dog.

i want to see cheap trick but they come with poison attached ....

Big Cheap Trick fan here.  Poison would be a deal breaker for me too.

I watched Cheap Trick in concert on tv once and was really surprised at how good their guitarist is. Almost like their band was created around him.
