Happy Birthday Billy Kreutzman!

The Dead celebrated Billy Kreutzman’s birthday last night by serenading him with “Happy Birthday” to him in the middle of the second set.  Then, after an awesome performance on Drums, Micky Hart gave him a big hug.

This was my first Dead show without Jerry.  In fact, it was my first Dead show in more years than I would like to admit.  Great fun!  Brought back memories from days gone by.   Nice to see them playing some accoustic.

Warren Haynes is a good addition to the band, but nobody can replace Jerry Garcia.  I miss Jerry…

Highlights from last night included “Loser”, which was once my favorite song, “The Weight”, “Me and My Uncle”, two really great “Space” sessions, “Drums”, and then “Not Fade Away” to close out the second set.

Phil preceded the encore with a plea for more people to be organ donors.
