    I’m honored and excited to share that I’ll be joining Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, and Jeff Chimenti of the Grateful Dead and John Mayer for a new venture – Dead & Company. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to try to help take the members of this iconic band to new places. http://www.deadandcompany.com

    Seems a bummer that Kimock isn’t involved…

  3. Personally, I’d be happier if they just left John Mayer out of it. I seem to be in the minority, but I was underwhelmed by his performance with Bobby on the Late Late Show. I’ll be happy to eat my words, but what would he sound like on something like “Eyes”? At least Trey seemed to be familiar with the vocabulary.

    • DUDE UR NOT WRONG. JOHN MAYER IS A GOOD GUITAR PLAYER BUT HE CANNOT KEEP UP WITH THE GRATEFUL DEADS. UR OPINION IS WONDERFUL I LOVE U John Mayer is fucking l a m e

      • Kimock over Oskar Mayer for sure, i just think msg on Halloween sounds like a blast. Maybe they worry about selling out MSG without a big name ringer? I could be wrong. I’m old and need some excitement. I’m going anyways.

  4. One of my internet “friends” is super stoked about this news because she loves John Mayer and 1D along with the Dead and I’m just like

    k… lol… wtf…

  5. WOW IM ACTUALLY SO FUCKING PISSED ABOUT THIS. JOHN MAYER IS LIKE THE EPITOME OF SHIT. HES JUDT A PRETTY BOY WITH A GUITAR. FUCK HIM. HE IS WAY TOO FUCKING MAINSTREAM. IM SO MAD ABOUT THIS. I FUCKING H A T E JOHN MAYER. HE DOES N O T DESERVE TO PLAY WITH THE DEAD. FUCK OFF JOHN GAYER.

  6. Honestly, this is a major Fuck You to Phil. Phil has been doing Halloween in the New York City area for the last couple of years and for this incarnation to announce their (currently) one and only gig on the 31st exhibits some unmitigated audacity. Not to mention the siphoning of fans from Phil’s gig at the Cap Theatre. Furthermore, it harkens back to NYE 2000 when San Franciscan fans had to make the Sophie’s choice of seeing The Remainders or The Q for their New Years entertainment. Now, NYer’s have the difficult choice of how they’re going to spend their Saturday Halloween night.

    If I remember it right, The Q was the hotter ticket back in 2000. Phil hasn’t announced his band for Oct 31. Maybe this influences his decision. It sound like Dead & Co. have already got Jimmy Herring under wraps.
