Thanks mama!!!! No worries... as you can see I don't make it here too often myself it seems! BTW totallt off subject but I LOOOOOOVE yer stuff. I'm a lot skirt stitchin' mama and I want to be just like you when I grow up. I've been an admirer for a long time :-) Very talented you are!
FURTHUR!!!!!!! All I can say is that if you can make a show during this winter tour DO IT!!! We hit the Wallingford CT show and it was completely bananas. Seeing the large span of Deadicated folk from over 4 decades is, welp, incredible and the air was ELECTRIC to say the least.
I: Shakedown Street, Alabama Getaway, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Pride of Cucamonga, Loose Lucy > Minglewood Blues > The Music Never Stopped
II: Jam > China Cat Sunflower > Eyes of the World > Born Cross-Eyed > Dark Star, Strawberry Fields, St. Stephen > The Eleven > Not Fade Away
Encore : Going Down the Road Feelin' Bad
"UJB" and "Rider" teases out of "China"
Can I just say that, Not Fade Away moved me and about 3000 other poeple to tears. The chant went on for a good 15 minutes after they left the stage and that was how we called them to encore. Mind Blowing stuff ladies.
The buzz about that show has been that it was the best show given by any combo of the guys since Jerry went on. Of course there are people upset that John Kadlecik from DSO sounds hauntingly like Jerry - I say FABULOUS!!! During the show I kept picturing Jerry smiling on everyone with approval. The bus is still rolling and I personally think he is honored by the tribute that is being paid to him via John. What an honor for HIM to be playing with Phil and Bob! He adds plenty of his own musical flair to the set as well but... whoa baby. Amazing.
Now. Get yer buns to a Furthur show FAST.... then come find me in the lot and we'll boogie down together for 4 hours inside.
We just got miracled tickets to the Boston show and we'll probably be in Ithica or the NH show too before heading for Oregon. We're moving there and coincidently in time to make the final show of the tour in Portland
