10 Years Ago Today…

Ten years ago today the stars aligned above San Francisco for 3 nights as an all-star cast of musicians gathered together to celebrate the music of the Grateful Dead for the first time billed as ‘Phil Lesh and Friends’ (aside from the famous 94′ acoustic show with Jerry that I’m not counting). This run at the Warfield Theater saw Trey Anastasio and Steve Kimock on guitars, Page McConnell on Keys, John Molo on drums, and, of course, Phil Lesh on bass.

Phil & Trey - 4/16/99

Enjoy the middle show from that 3 night run here: featuring 2 Phish covers – Prince Caspian and Chalkdust Torture – Dead anthems Help/Slip!/Franklin’s, Unbroken Chain, Fire on the Mountain, and St. Stephen along with the Floyd cover Wish You Were Here. This show is pure gold and a much needed gem in any collection – enjoy!
