I saw two shows with Ratdog last summer.

In Pixberg (BoboFest II) we chose to tailgate as long as possible, Johnwott & I got to our seats for the last two songs of their set.



Not bad, good groove.

At Darien, I took my sons with me.



Grate tailgate, we stood in line for entry, missed the first few songs but saw most of the set.

I was OK with it, but there are some songs that should be left alone.

Bob singing Sugaree is one of them.

So is Touch of Gray.

Let those be, Jerry isn't here to sing them, no one else should.

As for sitting in, Bob didn't at the shows we saw.

I saw them twice together at Camden and Mountain Laural. I thought both shows were great. The Dead and the Brothers have always been my favorite two bands since I was young(13 or so). Putting Ratdog with them was great for me. Didn't miss a minute of either show. Derek played with Ratdog one night and Bobby came out and played with ABB next night (Franklin's). Interesting mix of fans at these shows. Is Ratdog a replacement for the Dead? Of course not. Is his voice suffering a little? Sure, but so what. It was still a great night of music that we love. I saw Ratdog a couple nights later in the year in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. Lots of fun. The crowd was into it. I kinda like the fact that these bands can still get young fans interested. Is it the same as it was back in the seventies? Of course not. But I figure enjoy it while we still can. These guys aren't gonna live and tour forever.

Now I just wish we would get this years ABB dates. How often can I keep checking my computer for the word???

Sugaree and Loser if I am not mistaken.

ratdog was great at Nissan. they had most of the folks inside the shed on their feet by the middle of the set. ratdog is a great fit for the ABB. some folks here had an issue with ratdog, which i never really understood. the band was tight, weir was in great vocal shape and there were many evenings of "cross-pollination"! I wish they'd do it again. I have rarely seen as many people in their seats prior to the Bros coming on stage as i saw at Nissan for this show. at the very least most people if not excited about ratdog were interested and afterward i'd say most were satisfied. you can hear a few shows from that tour streaming on a site i cannot remember. they all sound great to me.

my major DeadHead drummer buddy Scotty saw them at Jones Beach.

.........and he was disappointed with Weir's performance.
