Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh celebrates his 70th birthday today. Quite a milestone! This is particularly special since Lesh survived a liver transplant a number of years back and is still out there rocking and rolling with all the gusto and excitement he had in his early days. Currently playing with Grateful Dead partner Bob Weir in Further, Lesh continues the Grateful Dead legacy, as do the other surviving members.
Here’s to a happy one, Phil! Glad you’re here.
And in honor of this special day, here’s a bit of Further jamming NOT FADE AWAY into, yep, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PHILIP from this past Friday the 12th. Enjoy!
