musician smushician. That's inconsequential. Every Guitar Center is full of musical technicians who are about as clueless to the essence and true magical spirit of music as the rodents feeding off the cardboard in their dumpsters. I'm not one to bag on academia, but I'll leave those useless musician arguments to the music schools and instrument stores that are filled with people who suck at listening to music and who suck at understanding music beyond a simple equation and finger jocking.

Of course we were Jerry song fans! Bob annoyed me back then but that all changed when Jerry died. I love that man and everything he has done for the community.

It was very easy to be annoyed with the Bob Weir of the 80s and 90s.

I don't think any "deadhead" worth his salt wasn't a fan of Jerry (in all aspects songwriting, singing and most of all playing)..and yes I know their were severe Bob haters even back in the day. He never annoyed me, I enjoyed his tunes, singing, & playing..

Well its all in the ears/eyes of the beholder. To me Bobby (along with Brent) kept Jerry awake for alot of shows in the the 80's &90's .... and I like to "rock" I don't need a 2hr Dark Star (unless I was on a ten strip) ... as far as the 90's by 92 Bobby (along with Phil) was carrying the band. Hey its all opinion there is no "right" answer. I knew a few who Bobby "annoyed" but don't count me & many others among them. The GD would never have been the GD without all the classics Bobby brought to the table...nearly 1/2 the songbook & just to be clear I love Phil. I would also add the Kreutzmann is as classic to the "sound" as any of the big 3 ( thats what we used to call Jerrry, Phil, & Bobby). The sum was greater than whole.

Back in the day Bobby's over the top vocal antics did annoy some folks, you would hear stuff like "it ain't easy being cheesey" and "Hollywood bob" but I've always loved his playing style. Of course in 1977 the GD did 60 shows and they played Estimated 50 times that year but I love Estimated but might grow tired after 50.

I personally loved those "over the top" vocals it was usually nearing a songs end when Bobby was "rocking out" Lovelight, Sugar Mag. LL Rain, Estimated HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA....I love/loved that shit... if that deems me a fan of "cheese" I plead happily guilty. On another note... I have been holding this comment for awhile ..but since you mention something in the ballpark...... bringing on more hate.... with all these (extra) shows Phil has been doing outside of Further..not just Phil n Friends... certain songs are absolutely getting beat to death. Let me explain. I will only refer to my era of attending 81 on. There would basically be a spring, summer, fall tour with a few extras NYE run, Mardi gras run.......... Lets keep it simple I'll just use China>Rider and Shakedown as examples. China> Rider would on average be played 3 times a tour for a total of 9. Toss in 2 for the extras you get 11 China>Riders a year. Neither Jerry or Bobby played China>Rider outside of the GD. So that was it for the year ...to ME..it always made it more special.... and I "think" it would pump up the band more being "fresher". I'm not going to go count but the number of China>Riders is way way way way more this year. Onto Shakedown... it was a lil rarer..a couple a tour --maybe 6 or 7 all year... again "fresher" ...I'm not gonna count but the number of Shakedowns this year is again way way higher. When you heard the opening notes of Shakedown it was SHAKEDOWN WOHHOO pandemonium. Sugaree suffered this same fate when Ratdog and Phil & Friends were touring at the same time... and then in certain yrs even more when the Dead was playing too. To ME... it just takes some of the luster off.
