Fucking joke!

He had ZERO regard for the other 98% of the folks who were intentively listening. He acted like an 8 year old child throwing a tantrum.

You're supposed to be a professional.....act like one and play the show you were paid to perform.

Just a grumpy old drunk who's ego is bigger than its ever been.

He sucks anymore!!


philisgod, i thought you were done with your flaming comments jackass.

So you can say whatever you like about bob weir, but anyone bashes someone of your kind and you throw a hissy fit like a little girl.
Lay off Bob Weir or do it on a website that's not devoted to him
Go back to the philzone with all youse guys who can converse over the sound of phil's thumping bass
by the way, MIZ says STFU to you too, he hates when you go see his shows


PS, you got the PC version of what I really would like to say to your pretentious pompous ass

Back on track boys and girls.......

interesting issue, I was watching the web stream when he stopped the acoustic set, did not catch the second time

How much talking is too much.?? it's a bar isn't it? I personally tend to agree with his action at least the first time, nice acoustic jam going and if you have a bunch of people 15 feet in front of you obviously talking... I don't know......

Second time seemed a touch harsh but still I would have been a bit irritated.

Heck I have been to live shows outside shows and been irritated with people talking... That is just me...how do people talk at Phil's place?

Seemed a touch harsh but can't blame him though....

I find it funny that people are so hard on Bob. The guy is a legend and I personally enjoy listening to him play music. If you do not like what he has to offer do not listen. I have been playing music for some time now and It is not the easiest thing to really get the feel for what your playing every time. Playing music can be hard especially when you have a major distraction right in front you. He obviously loves what he does. Just be respectful and be quiet. One of the best parts of the whole Grateful Dead experience is the hospitality of the people (well most anyways) that are attracted to the scene. Lets not let that part die.

Also, how do people know Bob is an alcoholic? The alcoholics I know have a very distinct look and Bob Weir does not have this look.

I personally agree with the sentiment.

If you don't, that's fine, your ticket will sell to some one else.

And seriously, you love the dead but hate bobby ?

Pshhhhhhh

PLEASE be quiet when the band is playing. PLEASE.

Re: I think Bob Weir's reaction to the talkers

#243535 1 year, 6 months ago
Again,I wish they'd approach the mic every night and use their power to firmly request everyone be quiet while they're playing. It's obvious the audience doesn't have enough self-respect to do it on their own, so it is clearly necessary for someone on stage to make the demand. Walking off stage is a bit much. If it was possible to beat the talkers with a pillowcase of oranges to teach them a lesson, then I'd be okay with them walking off stage. But we cannot punish the inconsiderate people. The band can make more of a direct impact than we ever could. It's called leadership. (It's also the problem with our lack of political leadership. Total unwillingness to ask the citizenry to drive less or use less energy or whatever it is would benefit everyone.)
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

Jonathan Wilson did a really good job of at the very least quieting down the crowd in Ventura. Who were really rowdy for an acoustic show, even a Saturday night. The trick is for the artist to set the tone early on.

I just don't understand why someone who hates Bobby would be on this board?

Kevin, I'm not a pretentious pompous ass you foolio.

And since when is the Furthur site "dedicated" to Bob Weir?

And please....dont preach to me about what to do and where to do it or what to say or not say. I call em' like I see em'....and bty, Bob Weir has called a few people ass holes and bashed them over the years....but hey.

But you are right....I shouldnt be so hard on the man....he has given me some moments of great joy over the years. But anymore, and for me ever since Jerry died, he has been on a downward spiral.

I am entitled to my opinion....and to me, anymore, Bobbo just sucks the life out of the music and pulls these bullshit stage antics.

I apologize for calling the man a drunk...

But the rest stands.

And who's this Miz you speak of?

what "antics" does bobby regularly pull? if this was a common thing for him to do nobody would be talking about it.
