the words 'crystal castles' and 'grateful dead' should never be spoken together.

Agreed about Crystal Castles. Would love to hear Fleet Foxes tackle Unbroken Chain or Box of Rain though.

The National is one of the most talented bands out right now, but this makes absolutely no sense....

This makes zero point zero sense.

WIDESPREAD PANIC wouldn’t do this.

WIDESPREAD PANIC knows the Greatful Dead catalogue WAY better than any of these other bands CAN’T!

See J. Bell did what Jimmy Garcia couldn’t quite do… The Blues with that edge..

Seriously, if these bands wanted to do a Widespread albums they would have to get on their knees and beg THE MASTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The National are cool, but don't sound at all like the GD

Bella Lugosi is Dead?

Hey kids....think outside the box. This could be cool. Plus, i think the idea is to NOT sound like the Dead. There are enough bands that do that. Reinterpretations can be cool.

in the original article (http://www.jambands.com/news/2011/04/19/the-national-working-on-grateful-dead-cover-album) they talk about how big of an inspiration the dead were to their music. makes sense to honor your idols and/or inspirations. its definitely a ballsy task, but if it works, it could be really cool.

I don't really like to diss any bands but The National was seriously the most boring concert I have ever attended in my life. And I'm no youngster.
