GRATEFUL DEAD: Furthur Is Going No Further
Bob Weir and Phil Lesh have pulled the plug on their band.
Furthur, the Grateful Dead off-shoot band with Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, is no longer.
A post on the band’s website says, “We’d like to thank you for a terrific ride. We’ll be closing up shop at Furthur.net, and heading onward. Thanks for making the Furthur community a great place to hang out, and for coming out to the shows. We’ll all be keeping very busy over the foreseeable future, and it’s time to let Furthur take a bow. We enjoyed the ride more than we can possibly express.”
This news comes after Weir canceled his tour this year with his other band, RatDog, to attend to personal matters. However, Weir seems to be doing better and was on hand for Sammy Hagar‘s Halloween party over the weekend in the Bay Area, along with Metallica‘s James Hetfield, former Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison and others.
