Phil’s New Phriends?

The rumor mills are churning today with news that Phil Lesh is getting together a new band consisting of Bob Weir, John Kadlecik (Dark Star Orchestra’s faux-Jerry), Joe Russo, and 2 other mystery members. The band is supposedly doing a short run at the Fox Theater in Oakland, September 18-20th. Bets are on as to the other members – likely Baracco, Segal, or Molitz on keys and a 3rd guitar player? We’ll just have to wait and see on the details, hopefully coming soon.

There are a lot of mixed feelings out there about Phil enlisting John K. but it’s hard to argue with his jedi-like mastery of the Jerry songbook. It sure will be interesting to see how John and Bob mix in the same band – I, for one, see a steam locomotive trainwreck, rolling down the tracks. Time will tell, and until it does let’s just rejoyce that Phil is making moves and keepin’ the music alive.

And Now
