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

Just A Man, With A Man’s Courage

In show biz terms, it’s a “single.” Just one guy onstage doing his act–singing, telling jokes, tying his dick into animal shapes, whatever–is called a single, and it takes balls. Way easier to be part of a group, or have a partner. Garcia couldn’t do it. Played solo once in his life and demanded the promoter fly John Kahn in for the next show.

But Bobby always was the brave one…


  1. I was at that show. He was nearly petrified.

    My wife and I saw maybe ten of these. Come to think of it, if you listen to the recording of the single in Mexico from ’14 you’ll hear Bobby refrance an occasion. I think he says “I can’t think of a better occasion.” The occasion was my wedding. Let me just say; Bob Weir is a consummate performer and a kind soul.

    My point being, Bobby did a ‘single’ for my wedding.
