Grateful Dead / Dead & Company guitarist Bob Weir recently joined TikTok after constant urging from his kids. Weir has posted two clips so far on his @BobbyWeir channel and also appeared in a video posted on the platform by PeteyUSA, who has nearly one million followers.

“Well okay, weir here and here’s the deal, my kids have been on me to do a TikTok clip. So, I’m going to have to try my hand at it,” Bobby said in his first TikTok clip. “I’m going to be coming at you with all kinds of stuff but mostly music and tips on how to get the most out of life.”

Weir’s second video was presented as an instructional video for a “song that has been very good to [him],” the Dead classic “Sugar Magnolia.” Bobby gave it a few shots before his daughter interrupted him, bringing the clip to an abrupt end. Check it out:

The guitarist gained nearly 50,000 followers within his first two days on the platform. His cameo on @PeteyUSA certainly helped as Bobby made his way from the reflection in the influencer’s mirror to joining Petey at his home. Weir and Petey went on to applaud each other’s respective shirts.
