This piece appeared in the print edition of Sunday’s NYT:

[www.nytimes.com]

Interesting factoid:

“A funny thing happened as this new band wound its way across the United States: The Dead became a cultural touchstone again. Dead & Company attracted a new crop of younger fans, as did tribute bands like Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Last August, the Dead had its largest week of record sales in 35 years, according to its publisher; in February, it won its first Grammy. Between 2012 and 2022, U.S. streams of Dead songs increased at nearly double the rate of the Rolling Stones, according to the tracking service Luminate.“

Yes, they play drums and space every show, but they are unique, free form pieces. More like jazz, improv explorations that sometimes elevate into mystical, magical moments and sometimes (most times?) are just opportunities to re-pack your pipe or a bathroom break before the the next tune. To me, the physical power of the "Drums" section hitting your chest can be amazing in the right arena; "Space" is sometimes like trying to corral cats on acid.

Opinions can vary greatly from one fan to the next on whether communion with the creator was achieved or "there goes 15-20 minutes of my life", often heavily influenced by the chemical intake of the listener.

Oh my, so true. Great take on it.

A long interesting read regarding the Grateful Dead and the band's various reincarnations. Made me wonder how the legacy of the Stones, Beatles, Dylan, Neil Young, etc., will be considered in the future many years from now.

Sorry but as a life long Grateful Dead fan this band was an absolute joke to me. Slowwwww versions of songs, horrible vocals, just bad for me and pretty much all the Deadheads I have spoke to.

The pace of their playing doesn’t bother me much. But I always gravitated to Jerry’s slow burners such as Sugaree, Standing on the Moon and Ship of Fools.

I have seen the Dead over 20 times with Jerry, what drives me nuts the most about Dead & Co is John Mayer's vocals. Does not fit with the Dead

I went to the final 3 shows in sf and loved every minute of it. People either get it or they don’t. To each their own.

To each their own definitely. I went to many of the shows of this version of the Dead and I thought it was excellent and musically rewarding. I go all the way back to the Jerry days (Jerry is a favorite of mine) and this has been a fun ride since 2015. This isn't the end of the Dead live...

Yeah, it would be nice if they also said good bye to Europe!

Per crholmstrom - How can we miss them if they won't go away? - the O'Jays have the best answer as to why the Sphere is in their future (and probably so many others).
