Jimbroni Posted June 23, 2004 Share Posted June 23, 2004 I'm all for cross-pollination! I don't mean to lean too hard on the Jerry thing (BTW, what well-digested garcia that Gillian Welch gitar cat puts forth- very nice), but the man had something going that these people need, and it's so seldom represented by those carrying around satchels full of vintage Dead tics. Yes, let's hope something great comes of it all! The guy who plays with Gillian is David Rawlings and he is a badass mofo. I don't necessarily disagree with your assessment of the dead, as I'm not big on the dead. I just feel too many people associate that scene with The Dead primarily. I too feel like Jerry's best stuff was with Old and in the Way, and I'm digging the ressurgence of bluegrass. Getting back to the original point of this thread though. I think happy go lucky jammin music is more conducive to a festival type scenario, than the bands lollapalooza chose. Who goes to a festival to be depressed by Morrisey? Too me if you're going to see Morrisey, it should be in a smoke filled club or bar. I think there is a certain spirit people get when going to a festival similar to going to the county fair when you're a kid. Together all sing their different songs in union - the Uni-verse.
