Dead Heads For Obama 2012

#112817 2 years, 9 months ago
Nope, it hasn't been announced. But it's a great idea to get out the hippie vote again, and maybe they can include Hornsby in a big old spectacular national-attention-getting show this time. It doesn't have to "replace" Furthur, either; in a Spring 2008 interview Phil Lesh said, “Basically, what [The Dead have] decided after the Obama event was that when we do get together we want to do it for a good cause — for benefits. For something like the getting-out-the-vote rallies. For doing good for other people. That’s basically the approach we’re going to take.” www.theweekender.com/music0617.html

A few lineups that would work:
Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, Hart, Hornsby, Marsalis, Sless and Donna Jean
Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, Hart, Hornsby, Karan and Osborne
Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, Hart, Hornsby, Herring, Karan and Donna Jean
Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, Hart, Hornsby, Karan, Becker and Pehrson
Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, Hart, Hornsby and Haynes

Any of those would be great. Bobby could also do some TRI benifits too.

Unfortunately Obama 2012 has much less of a roar than it did in 2008.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

I think JK at least needs to be in consideration, the guy has stepped up to a big challenge and done fairly well in my opinion

I've lost faith in this government. I was raised american and catholic. I consider myself as american as I do catholic. I will not vote for obama again. My linguistic skills are not sufficient to adequately express the contempt I harbor for Obama or the government he figureheads.
