Why doesn't Grateful Dead get back together?

#7745 3 years, 6 months ago
Maybe it's a question that has been asked and answered a thousand times, but I still don't know the answer. I saw the Rhythm Devils up at Hampton Beach Casino in NH this summer and they put on one awesome show! Mickey and Bill still rock (when they aren't off on some cruise somewhere in the Caribbean). I saw Donna Jean the other night at Mexicali Live in NJ and my goodness she still rocks. She was shaking and rocking and rolling and sounding very very good (better than the old days -shh). So I ask this question, why aren't they all playing together. Fill in the other parts appropriately and then there you have it. Wouldn't that be nice? Maybe I am naive on the subject, but I really don't know!?

With whom would you fill the empty parts?

Uh....In case you hadn't noticed....The Grateful Dead was a band with a guitar player named JERRY GARCIA...and he is no longer with us. Getting the band back together is simply not an option. Death is pretty final, as far as I know

Now that the singer is gone,
where shall I go for the song?

Ummm, u r wrong. The grateful dead was more than jerry garcia...it became an institution. The band had lost members before and kept truckin along. We all love jerry but my question really was, why don't kreutzman & mickey play with furthur, I don't care what they call themselves...and if donna was there too-hey all the better. Ya know, I bet u jerry would have wanted the name and the badn "the grateful dead" to continue beyond him...and indeed the music continues.

1. I don't think they were asked ( although during an interview B. Kreutzman said he had no interest in what they were doing In his opinion... reliving old material ) I haven't read any of Mickey's opinions ( if he said anything)

2. They each have their own thing going and seem to be very happy persuing other interests.

3. If drummers were added... different billing , higher prices.... etc....

I like Furthur a lot .
But if they put the Other Ones back together with Hornsby and Herring along with the "Core Four" That would be SOMETHING !!

Jerry was a guitar player in a band whose various member made essential artistic contributions defining thier identity.
That band has carried on throughout many diferent incarnations with different essential members. The band could continue without Jerry as the Dead, because it is not the Jerry Garcia Band.
