Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Performs ‘Bird Song’ At Red Rocks 2019: Pro-Shot Video

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returned to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison Colorado for an emotional concert on August 29, 2019 that came a few days after Neal Casal died. The quintet released professionally-shot video of the 23+ minute “Bird Song” that opened the second set on a night band members were reeling from the loss of a friend.

Multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie was JRAD’s guest at Red Rocks. Bogie played clarinet and sax on the stellar version of “Bird Song” in which the band and their guest took their time exploring every nook and cranny of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter’s tribute to Janis Joplin. Guitarist Tom Hamilton sang “Bird Song” and changed the lyric in its first line from “her” to “him,” in what was seemingly a tribute to Casal.
