Bob Weir: One of the 10 Most Hated Men in Rock???
    #3084413 - 09/02/04 09:52 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

http://www.riverfronttimes.com/issues/2004-09-01/music.html

A pretty harsh article which picks on 10 rockers and tears them apart. I fouind the entry for Jimmy Buffett (#3) amusing, but they ripped Bobby down....

10. Bob Weir You can actually stop truckin' now, Bob. The Dead's insistence on staying on the road post-Jerry Garcia has proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the band was just a collection of semi-competent nerds with a prodigiously charismatic and talented frontman. And "Rock Star Bobby" is the worst of the bunch, a bona fide gravy trainer who would've probably invited frequent guest Huey Lewis to join the band as a full-time harmonica player had Garcia not understandably kept his pink Izod-wearing ass in check. Weir's side project, Rat Dog, is basically a below-average bar band with a frontman who needs a teleprompter to remember his own lyrics. But frankly, given our unyielding love for all things Garcia, we were willing to forgive and forget until Weir & Co. jumped on a stage in a movie-studio lot to appear on Leno recently. With Garcia on the injured list (for good), Weir stepped in to sing lead vocals on "Touch of Grey." Horribly. Why he didn't just defecate on Jerry's headstone instead, we'll never know.

Ouch!

obviously written by an individual with demons.

bob took the lead on many a dead song, jack, weather report, etc etc. and did it with beauty.

I heard Touch of Grey at Blossom sung by Bob, and I had no complaints. Yes, it will always sound classic and beautiful as sung by Jerry, but Bob is by no means a bad singer and gives the song a new spin.

It was one of my favorites at Blossom, seemed the crowd had the most energy during it.

But man, Iko Iko at DTE was so incredible. I don't know why, but when your standing in the pouring rain, in the freezing cold, and that song comes on, it has a way of kicking your ass into high gear. The whole place was dancing and singing, it was beautiful.

I think the "honorable mentions" were also people they hate., but not enough to develop a paragraph rant to trash them.

These people have a deranged view of what playing music is about. Just because Jerry isn't here anymore doesn't mean the Dead are dead. One member doesn't make a band and in the case of the Dead each member contributed to something absolutely beautiful and for that there is no way that any one of them can be hated.

Besides, ANYONE who calls the Beatles a "grotesquely overrated boyband" has no say in anything music.

Well in a way that article gets to me... I've kinda tended to lean toward the other side on Bob. In a way the article has some good points and are correct. Ever since the recent Dead show Bob has increasingly become some-what like an outdated nerd. I cant say he has the best knowledge of the thick line between "cool, Im a rockstar" and "even though Im a rock star I can wear whatever I want" wrong. In the winterland DVD, did you notice his purple shirt that had "Madonna" written across the front of it w/ a snap pic of madonna herself? Along with a pair of ripped off jean booty shorts. And no "hey it was 87." With all his recent preaching on how import it is to vote makes him sound more like a bitching Elephant. Ok enought cutting him down, he has Amazing musical talent and I just think that he knows now is his time to shine being before Jerry's Death it was just Marsha Marsha Marsha, but Martha being a nickname for Jerry. He is the frontman now and wants it that way, I can't say I'd blame him. Though The Dead still makes decent music now a days, you can't say the are even 90% as good as they used to be. And ever Dead Head whould pretty much agree on that...
