Is Phil Quitting???

I know I'm supposed to be "reporting" the news here, but I haven't thought that Phil's health issues has meant he won't do shows ever again.

But Jesse Jarnow recently wrote in Jamebase "With Phil Lesh's retirement imminent, the Dead seem to be maybe, actually done."

I refuse to believe it...

Phil likes to make announcements. I'm sure if he ever does seriously mean to retire he would definately make an announcement.
Til then, I will believe that the comment was mere speculation based on Phil's taking time off to heal from his recent health issues.

I really want to see Furthur co-headline with the Allman Brothers at Wanee 2011! Bobby & Billy have been there twice so it only seems natural to get Phil there too. I don't know about you but I'm not ready to end my long strange trip anytime soon...Peace, Love & Music

Sadly the rumors are back. Through the end of the year then one Phil and Friends tour. Again let's hope this isn't true

Actual CBS News Report Today:
(CBS News)
"At 85 years old, Tony Bennett is still topping charts, just like he was when he first started more than six decades ago. CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller spent the day with the music legend in one of his favorite cities, New Orleans."
Saw Stephen Still last week at Tarrytown Music Hall in New York. Great show. During his on-stage banter, Stills said he had to sit next to Tony Bennett for 6 hours on or waiting for a plane (Steve's not the most coherent guy, y'know). Anyway, Stills says they're talking about being on the road and geting older and stuff like that and Stills said Tony Bennett said to him, "You can always lower the key" (to a song to keep it within your vocal range). All the while, Stills is re-tuning his guitar into one of those weird Richie Havens-like open tuning and starts strumming and next thing you know he's playing a damn-good cover of Harrison's song from Sgt. Pepper's ("Life Goes On Within You and Without You"), after which he goes into Suite: Judy Blue Eyes (in that same weird tuning), and plays the whole song and at that part where he has to hit that really high note on "it's my HEART" he nails it, and, still strumming, he says to the audience "Believe me, man, I was as surprised as you were" and goes back to finish the song abd then goes back to finish the Harrison song! What's my point? Just this: Phil, follow whatever advice Tony gave Stills, don't bow out just yet, keep on truckin' like Stills, Dylan, and all those "old" dudes who are still nailing it and maybe that's the secret to how stay forever young.
