Bob Weir & RatDog
If you’re missing the Grateful Dead’s heady tunes, then Bob Weir & RatDog might very well put you at ease. Since the Dead disbanded in 1995 after the death of Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Rob Wasserman emerged as RatDog, specializing in covers, Grateful Dead classics, and original songs. At one time, the duo, along with Primus and Further drummer Jay Lane, went by the name Scaring the Children to very well — as we have surmised — scare your children. But scare your children out of what? We aren’t sure. We can be sure, however, that we’re a little too excited to take a jaunt down Shakedown Street with a couple of Grateful Dead OGs.
