I was listening to channel 23 on Sirius the other day, the dead channel, when I had the realization that you never hear any Phil on the channel. Why is that? I have to suffer through a lot of Dead & Co ( I really don't, I change the channel) but no Phil. I assume that it is a personal decision that he made but don't get it.
Phil Lesh is one of the greatest bass players and most brilliant musicians in the world. He was a major developer of the lead bass approach. Admittedly he has lost a lot on his fastball, but who hasn't? I personally find his music much more listenable these days than having to deal with Bob's blown out vocal chords.
Hope the 49ers win tomorrow. I love the quarterback story.
