Thoughts On The Dead

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


Enthusiasts, I was wrong–wrong as hell–about the Bobby & Phil Duo shows. I thought they would be goofy (they are, but in a good way), and sloppy (they are, but in a comforting way), and most of all I thought they would be boring.

I was not prepared for the jams, Enthusiasts. This is last night’s second set with Trim Arugula, and you should watch it.


  1. I predicted wonderful or horrible, no chance of mediocre, or boring.

    Either they nailed it, or they bombed.

    I guess I am happy they nailed it, but I wish I was there.

  2. Oh that’s tasty

  3. But, isn’t that the Grateful Dead in general? They either nailed it or bombed it? There’s no safe in between, and that’s how we like it??

    It’s never the same without Phil.

  5. Beaches/Homeland then Seasons/Evenings. I can never remember that either.

    Agree to disagree? I watched the Jack Straw. Biased: I don’t quite share your fondness for Tainted Anchovie . And I know it’s not a zero sum game, and whatever shakes your jimmies, but I will listen to a recording of the actual good ol Grateful Dead over this pale limp noodle every single time.

    Don’t mean to poo in your comment section though. Came here for the funny.

    This was my best post Grateful Dead, Grateful Dead experience since they performed as Further.
