I dunno why I always put Mickey first 'cause Billy was an original member and Mickey came later. In any frickin' case, it would sure be nice if this band had kept Mickey & Billy and changed its name from The Dead to Furthur just like they changed from The Other Ones to The Dead prior to 2004 (or was it 2003? I posted the first The Dead show which I'm a-thinkin' (without looking it up) was 2-14-03 . . . sweet SBD with Sammy Hagar and Joan Osborne.)
John Kadlecik in the starring role as Jerry Garcia this go-around is somethin' I ain't a-too sure about 'cause I don't wanna be hearin' the Grateful Dead replicated. No sir. Look, Jerry's gone and nothin's gonna bring him back so I wanna hear these Grate songs done similarly while paying a Grate tribute to Jer. I don't wanna hear 'em the same as I have many times over. I know the fans (in general, according to the applause) LOVE hearing "Jerry" up there, but for me, while I dig the tunes, the clone just ain't right.
Anyway, clone or not, still some pretty good music. Mayhaps someday, if I'm still alive, I'll get to post the SBDs for folks. For now, check this out...
