Phil Lesh

Famed for his three-decade stint as the bassist with the Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh was born March 15, 1940, in Berkeley, CA; rooted in jazz and classical performance, he initially explored the violin and trumpet and, while attending Mills College, studied avant-garde composition and electronic music under the tutelage of Luciano Berio. In 1965, Lesh joined his friend Jerry Garcia's band the Warlocks, soon rechristened the Grateful Dead. He remained with the group for the remainder of its existence, becoming a fan favorite as much for his distinctive bass playing as for his single-minded devotion to the Dead's music (no long-term side projects) and custodianship of their recorded archives, overseeing the quality of each legitimate live release. After Garcia's 1995 death spelled the end of the Dead as a touring entity, Lesh reunited with bandmates Bob Weir and Mickey Hart in the Other Ones, which headlined the 1998 Further Festival. Later that year he learned he was in need of a liver transplant, successfully undergoing surgery in December. The Sunday before he went under, Deadheads across the globe joined in Five Minutes for Phil, a worldwide prayer circle he later credited as a major factor in his speedy recovery. Lesh hit the road in 1999 as headliner, issuing his solo debut, Love Will See You Through, in the autumn. The live album was a success, so after extensive touring he settled back into the studio for his first studio-recorded album since his days in the Dead. The results, There and Back Again, was released in the spring of 2002. Lesh has since toured as Phil Lesh & Friends. Several live albums were released in 2006, including Live at the Warfield from Image Records and a stop-by-stop series from Instant Live Records that covered his tour that year. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Good Lord the bass is sweet. The whole piece is tighter, crisper than the dead. The pedal steel is amazing.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured (you won't die) in two days. Now that you have started reading this don't stop. Post this on at least five other stations/son g s in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary it actually works

I was one of the lucky ones and got to tour with the dead. Although my time was short before one of the most darkest days in 95.whenever I just turn my tunes on it brings me back to the best times of my life and I am still now and forever a devoted deadhead

My brother Michael passed recently & was a devout GD fan!! He went on tour funding excursions with cottage industry tie-dyed t-shirts & what have you as a taper tickets fan with the skillset to capture the essence! My younger brother & I now share his 'library'... His music insured with his homeowners policy!! My point is this music has enabled me to grieve in a most positive & constructive way. I hope all who read this find solace & comfort this music affords....
DONT LET GO.

LOL, stint with the dead. Having seen them live many times I would have to say the dead is not a stint, but a lifestyle... and more. Phil is one of the best of his craft ever. Up there with fishman and claypol. Jam on, Phil, Jam on.
