I think Billy is so under appreciated sometimes. The man is just elastic, he can bring his touch into the most unpredictable moments, and provide the glue to keep things moving along. Mickey's world influences really added textural elements, but I don't think he coulda filled Billy's shoes and be the lone drummer, like Billy did in my favorite Dead era, late 72-73. Bill's Elvin Jones influence really became evident in that portion of his career, and he really helped propel the band into new territory. Thanks Billy K!

^ well said rjd999, he is definitely one of the most underrated of all the drumming greats.

I sure hope 7 Walkers are not playing any Dead covers on this tour. After all, Bill's criticized Furthur for essentially being a nostalgia act. And we know everybody really wants to go and hear two hours of original 7 Walkers songs.

as much as I don't like watching people play music (rather listen only), these videos are awesome
