Today is the 65th birthday of Bob Weir – the rhythm guitarist of the Grateful Dead. Rather than the Eulogy like, accolade packed blogs I’ve read today. Id like to say Happy birthday by sharing some of my favorite Bobby tunes (and covers). Here are my top 5, well top 6. I couldn’t settle on just 5. Spanning from 1968 to just a few months ago. Bobbie has been crushing it for years.
The Grateful Dead – 1968 – The Newport Pop Festival – The Eleven.
The Grateful Dead – 1978 – Shoreline Ampitheater – My Brother Esau
The Grateful Dead – 12/31/1978 (the closing of wiinterland) – Me and My Uncle
Bob Weir – May 2011- TEDx Alcatraz – Masters of War> Birdsong
Bob Weir – May 2011- TRI Studio – Black Throated Wind
Further – 7/13/2012 Coney Island NY – Weather Report Suite – Let It Grow
