    So you must have also heard The Walking Dead & Company with John Mayer. They were on Fallon the other day. Appalling.

  8. They definitely don't look more human than human (okay that's just a crappy White Zombie joke... I'll go home now).

    Also the Tyrell company corporate motto - hmmm, are you implying they're Nexus 6 Replicants? Skin Jobs? ;)

    I looked on the Tonight Show website. They didn't have them listed. What day were they on?

    I can't find the one I saw. This one from two years ago is really very good. A fun mishmash of Mayer's singing, him playing more Garcia-esque style (he has the chops to pull off) and the band sounding Dead-like enough for familiarity, playing great for oldsters. Wish I could have heard this the first time.

    Cool.

    If you're not a Dead fan, you probably don't care about this and will roll your eyes, but...

    Bob Weir has been slowing the tempos down for the past 10 years or so. Phil Lesh has tried to build Phil and Phriends into the hardest jamming jamband with a rotating cast of the most fearsome musicians on the scene. Bob thinks the Dead's real legacy is their songbook of a lost Americana. So he wants to slow all the songs down to put the focus on the lyrics so he can emote and be a storyteller. (That's why he's been playing with bands like the National, Wilco, the Avett Brothers and My Morning Jacket). But the slower tempos drive the drummers crazy because they want to play with energy. So I think that's why they brought John Mayer in. He's a real groove/feel/rhythmic player and get concentrates on the feel at any temp. He kind of acts like the bass player sometimes with D&C. He groves and the rest of band layers themselves on top.

    I know, I know... You're probably rolling your eyes about right now. Us deadheads are used to that when we start talking. ;)

    No eye-rolling. I love seeing how into-it you guys are. I... just don't get it myself. I was 19 and saw the Dead in 1983 in SLC. There was a 20 minute drum duet with drums all over the place, tam-tams and a whole trailerload of things. I was so bored I almost left in the middle of it.
