This looks like it was all shot at the Change Rocks event at Penn State. Here is some other footage from them rehearsing for that night.

IwantMyfunk-Prepare for an unbelievable time! My first Dead show was the day after my highschool graduation with Willie Nelson and Moe. in upstate NY and it was the start of a whole new life for me. I've yet to come across an experience like it since, even after all the hundreds of shows and big time festivals. I can't wait for 2009s music scene to finally explode. I hope these guys go to Bonnaroo with the Bros, that way we can have everyone together!

well i was at the last dead show in PennState and altho i had a great time being with friends and all that good stuff, the show itself was very unrehearsed and not that great. i thought the allmans gave a better show actually, but i do think that warren playing with the dead is a no-brainer, he just needs to stop being such a slut, and bobby needs to stop being such a control freak onstage.

I like that 50 state idea. I'd figure out how to go for sure. I got real excited thinking this might really happen. I only got to see Jerry and the Boys around 22 times, and never got to "tour".Vegas, Los Angeles and Oakland.

Got enough for up to three weeks of Tour, saved so far. Would love to hear the dates.

I didnt enjoy the rest of the Dead on the 04 tour, and talked some shit about Warren. I feel this time will be real great and I think Warren will do just fine. Sorry about all the shit talking man. Always loved the Mule.

Chidodger, after reading many of your posts over the past half year or so, I get the a feeling that you might have had a good time at Rothbury. Maybe it's because you haven't made a post without including ROTHBURY! during that entire period. Yes, I agree it was a sweet festival, but I think you take the term Rothbury fan boy to the next level. Get ready though, because the rumors I've heard include both Phish and the Dead at Roth next year...

Seeing this video brought it back home for me. All the great shows and true to form; doesn't everyone; Phil,Bobby,Micky,and Bill; don't they sound a lot like Jerry when they speak? Maybe I'm just all nostalgic but its like his spirit is there in the conversation. Truly moving

I was checking out Jambase last night, and I said to my son (14) it looks like the Dead, Phish and Panic will tour this summer. He said, You'll go see all of those won't you? I said, not the Dead, he said 'cause Jerry's gone? I said, yeah.(I saw them 30 times w/Jerry and it hasn't been the same) Now that I see this video, I would buy a ticket to see Billy w/Mickey, and throw in Warren and it's definately worth at least 1 or 2 shows.

You know, I would be intrigued to see Keller with the Dead, rather than Warren. Nothing against Warren - I like Warren, dig the Mule. Will go see either any time I can. And yea, if the Dead come to Mtn Jam, I am there. And I know, I know, I know ... there will NEVER, EVER, be another Jerry - Don't want there to ever be. But as far as someone emulating Jerry's sound, no one else comes as close as Kdub. I know he's got dates through April as of now, and I know, this is very unlikely. But it's just what I would like to see - And Keller has toured with Ratdog and jammed with Bobby. So it wouldn't really be out of the question. Oh and lastly, my guess is that the most likely fest they play this summer is Gathering of the Vibes. They've all played there at one point or another, have quite a bond with Ken Hayes and the Vibe Tribe. I am interested to see what happens and will certainly take in a show or two somewhere. So we'll see, won't we?

Yea, Kolmah, I've heard others mention him too, and I would be a fan of that too. And I've seen Warren with the Dead. I think he's a better fit with the ABB than with the Dead. I don't know, I just don't think I like him as a fit that much. That is just my .02 though.

Dead tour and Phish tour?!?! What could be more exciting?

notrningwheels starstarstarstarstar Sat 12/20/2008 03:10PM

John from DSO, compared to recordings of Jerry that I have, is almost indistinguishable in quality for about 90% of the stuff I've heard. Though Jerry always had something up his sleeve that breaks the groove for a couple beats before everything goes to the next level. I don't think it's worth losing DSO for the summer to put John with the Dead.

Seriously though Warren Haynes has consistently left me unimpressed at Langerado, All Good, and at the Change Rocks concert. My seat didn't have the best sound at change rocks, so I would give him the benefit of the doubt there. However when Jackie Green, Steve Kimock, Keller, or John Scofield could easily be recruited for a tour this year, why go with a guitarist that many people have less love for?. My 2 cents

Winter's hard, spread some love on these short days and long nights, and I'll see you at the festival!

Please God, let a Dead tour next summer be a reality, it'll keep a majority of the druggie dirtbags away from the Phish shows (not that those people are real fans of any kind of music). And do people really think Phish or the Dead will play the festival circuit next summer? Highly, highly doubtful. In fact I would expect the opposite, where Phish schedules shows at the same time as some of the festivals, in order to keep the scene from getting too overcrowded and out of hand. I could see the Dead doing a few of the bigger ones, but I can't see Phish doing any of them, IMO.

JOHN form DARK STAR must go on the tour. Just ask Bobby. Bob played with DSO and during the set he looked over at John and FREAKED because he was expecting to see Jerry across the stage from him. If the doesn't make chills run down your spine you just don't need to see the Dead!

I was reading some posts in regards to having DSO's guitarist play in place of Warren. I don't think the rest of the band is looking for someone who sounds like Jerry. That is not what they are doing. If you look at Phil and friends and Rat dog that is the one thing that never is. I appreciate that because it is looking for new ground. There is always an homage when the band play in regards to Jerry as well in all the projects but it is not about having someone who sounds like him. Warren is a great player and brings with him his own talent and earthy sound.

^^^ your super gay! I bet you have no clue how hard phish throws down. I'm sure you've never seen them and have no fucking clue what your talking about. How about you get your head out of your ass and try new things. Too scared? Too set in your 70 year old ways? You give real deadheads a bad name. Real deadheads are about trying new things and having that sense of adventure. I know this because i'm a deadhead and i also love phish. It is possible to like them both. You only make yourself look really stupid. Have you heard the Dead lately? It isn't exactly anything new or groundbreaking. I'll probably see them once this summer just to check them out, but seriously they havent been relevant since 1995. Sure they make some good music, but it ain't the same. Get over yourself, try new things, and stop making yourself look like the asshole you are.

warren is a safe pick i wish they would go out on a limb and get somebody new is my basic idea, i'm not a huge fan of warren, he's good but his style is so cliche, whatever it'll be good regardless

This is merely video from the Obama rehearsals. Not to burst any bubbles but its nothing new. The story trys to lead you down the thought process of them rehearsing currently and theres simply no evidence of that.

As far as 10klf havin that lineup. keep dreaming. Nice dream but nothing more.

Lastly, there will be no Rothbury this year. The promotoers were crooks and "left town" owing a ton of money to people. SOrry to be the debbie downer here

Merry Christmas though :-D

WHERE'S KIMOCK??? Ain't gonna be the same without the 'lil toaster! Throw SK on the bill BY HIMSELF...and I'll leave my home state of Washington to see these guys. No SK w/ the band means just another nostalgia trip to no where. Did that in '98 for Further Fest...ain't doin' it again. Kimock's the only living guitarist today to take those guys to the stratosphere and back. Love Warren...but he ain't no SK with this repetoire! Happy Holidays folks...

Billy K was wearing a Steve Kimock Band Batik in this video. Too bad Kimock wont be with them. He's got his new band starting this spring.

i agree 100% with jiudice....Kimock is the best choice for this outing. I saw kimock with ratdog last year and dear lord that guy blew the roof off the place. No offense to Mark Karan, but kimock just kept bringing the heat. Much better than a regular ratddog show any day. Seems like bobby dosen't have beef with kimock like phil apparently does. Its a shame because kimock really brings the music to a whole new level. The guy just has his own style and tone that are unmatched. Shit, throw him up there with warren just to have them keep each other in check.

For the Warren haters,

Over the past years, he has added stability and a link for the other members of the band. He plays with passion and from his heart. That is why he is band member. I am not saying that Kimock would not be good choice, but not at the expense of kicking Warren out of the band. Sometimes people on this site drive me bonkers. All I want for Christmas is Phish opening for the Dead. Let the men teach the boys a few lessons and maybe we would get one hell of a jam session.

batso33...I am FAR from a Warren hater...geez. I love warren!! I've just been there done that with every guitarist on the planet trying to sit in with these guys to make it "real" (warren,jimmy herring,jackie what-ever-his-name is, barry sless, mark karan, etc,etc.)...I mean these guys are professional musicians 100% and they are GREAT guitarists in their own right. However, I hold a VERY high bar when it comes to the Dead repetoire...and the ONLY guitarist on the planet today that can still give me chills playing their music is Steve Kimock. Not that these other cats can't hold a GD tune...they CAN! But Steve takes it to the STRATOSPHERE and back...something none of these guys can do. Steve is doing his own thing this spring (thank GOD!)...but if Phil could get over his issues with SK and BEG him to play with them- THAT band could do a world tour and sell out every venue on the planet. My $.02...

^^^^^^ I agree. Bob Stirner from Boris Garcia would be an excellent choice. I used to jam with him in his old dead cover band.
