The remaining members of the Grateful Dead have decided to get back together once again for a month-long tour. Though they have been playing separately in their own bands and have, on occasion, gotten back together to play special gigs asThe Dead, this is their first tour together in four years. Here's a special video from the boys:

Nice clip, good news - Merry Christmas to the Deadheads :) (I saw the Other Ones with Joan Osborne at the Gorge years back. She kicked a new life into the old songs, never heard them done better.) Thanks for the heads-up, Hal.
Should be a good show -- and the NYE gigs sounded like great fun.

We've got a feature coming up in the February Relix with interviews with the whole band ...
Looking forward to reading that, Richard. And yeah, Donna, I agree that Joan Osbourne was a great addition. Always missed Donna G after she left the band. Those songs were meant to have a female vocalist in the mix.
Yes, and Joan added an earthiness that grounded them. I really loved her take on Ramblin Rose...about Donna G, I am a Donna Jeanne too, which one me some points in the college crowd - not sure what I can cash that in for now ;)
(That was supposed to be won, not one ;)
