Happy 79th to Philip Chapman Lesh

Recommended Posts

Mega mad love for Father Lesh and I do not take for granted the anticipation of seeing him play again this summer at this stage in his life. My 11 year old was telling me today just how much he loves Box of Rain. I explained the origins of the song to him. I'm always taken aback by what sticks with him. Ha. The things that bring us pride...

Edit to add his revised comment was "mom, I don't know, I just really love this song. Just the feel.  But, Lesh wasn't the sharpest singer though was he mom?"

Ha. On point

"My 11 year old was telling me today just how much he loves Box of Rain."

That has been the lullaby song I sing to my son when I tuck him into bed. One afternoon a few years ago he heard it for the first time and lost his marbles. 

 

I bought last night's stream and listened to the second set tonight. Holy fuck, Benmont Tech is a perfect keyboard player for Grateful Dead music. Complete with a grand piano!

For reals, this second set tonight kicked so much ass.
