Listen children. Jerry was more than just a great guitar player. He transcended reality. There were moments of grace that I have never seen with another band. Jerry would play and it would seem like raindrops coming off of the guitar. I have seen this clown Butler (Buthole) 14 times at festivals and such.
I used to think he was OK UNTIL I saw him kill the vibe too many times sitting in his chair.
BUTLER has NEVER played anything even close to as transcending and deep as Jerry ever in his life. He may be able to occasionally shred, but anyone who thinks he's even in the same universe as Jerry is obviously just too young to have seen Jerry live.
You'd have to be ignorant or out of your fucking mind to even utter the words that this poser Butlhole is anywhere close to Garcia.
Jon Butlhole has one song. He changes the words, but it is all the same fucking thing. Jerry had a repertoire of 500 songs he could pull out at any time, even when he was old and fat.
Butlhole plays the same 14 songs every night for 40 or 50 dates in a row. He is a loser and ungrateful for all the love our scene has shown him and to his band that put up with his dick head attitude and if I ever run into him I'll slap his ass. If your reading this buthole, bring it on.
Butlhole would have no career in America if not for the dead heads. This is not a matter of opinion you frickin tools. Show some respect. There would be no party without Garcia. The sixties died and Jerry and the Grateful Dead single handedly kept it going for 25 more years until finally Phish came around and then there were 2 bands. Now there are hundreds and they all owe a debt to the dead. So grow up and show some respects.
By the way Zozo, why don't you wait for your balls to drop before you make another comment.
