Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Hand Me My Old Guitar

As with every other trivial piece of nonsense being wildly speculated about concerning the Farewell Shows, whether or not Trey will play one of Garcia’s old guitars is being debated.

TotD can report to you (first as always) that not only will Trey play Wolf, but also wear Garcia’s favorite flannel, smoke a cigarette from a half-empty pack of Camels of Garcia’s found after his death, and bathe using unopened hygiene products found in Garcia’s bathroom. (The number of unopened hygiene products was surprising if you didn’t know him, predictable if you did.)

Trey did refuse one thing: at the meeting, Garcia’s ex-wife who isn’t Mountain Girl (Montana? Mashed Potatoes?) revealed she had kept a small portion of Garcia’s cremated remains; she asked Trey if he “wanted a toot,” and at that point, even Billy left the room because of how weird it had gotten.

Seriously, though: Trey will not be playing Wolf. Or Tiger, or Rosebud, or any other of Garcia’s ridiculously over-engineered guitars; he has his own ridiculously over-engineered guitar.  (What’s it called? The Laser Duck?) Also, Trey’s guitar is a semi-hollowbody, whereas Garcia’s guitars are, like, 14 of the world’s hardest and most expensive woods glued together and weigh more than neutron stars after the holidays.

Trey has agreed to let Parish hit three or four people for him, though.

    In all seriousness, Garcia’s guitars are all locked away in a safe somewhere.
