Bob Weir Joins Phil Lesh To Celebrate Terrapin Crossroads’ 5th Anniversary

first_imgLast night, Grateful Dead founding members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh surprised fans everywhere with a free performance at Lesh’s venue, Terrapin Crossroads. The show marked the 5th anniversary of TXR’s existence, and the celebration was all-too fitting, as the Furthur members returned to the stage for the first time since Jackie Greene’s birthday party back in November.The show featured an interesting mix of songs, pulled largely from the Grateful Dead catalog, but with selections from Weir’s recent solo album Blue Mountain as well. They also covered The Band’s “The Shape I’m In” amongst others, and closed out the show with a rocking “Johnny B. Goode.” Also of note was “The Music Never Stopped,” which featured some potent vocals from Nicki Bluhm.Weir and Lesh were backed by the Terrapin Family Band, which includes Grahame Lesh, Ross James, Alex Koford, and Jason Crosby. Fortunately, thanks to Andrew Shaman, we can watch fan-shot full video of the entire performance.

Ighalo off to UK for Man U deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Odion Ighalo on loan, according to reports. The former Watford striker is currently on the books at Shanghai Shenhua, but the start of the Chinese Super League has been suspended amid a developing coronavirus crisis in China. The Mirror claimed Ighalo is on his way back to Europe and is keen to secure a last-minute transfer. United have been on the hunt for a frontman this month after failing to replace Romelu Lukaku during the summer. Ighalo was once linked with a move to United when he was still at Watford and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be tempted by a short-term solution to his goalscoring problems. Marcus Rashford is currently out injured and Ighalo has continued to score goals while in China, grabbing 10 in 19 appearances for Shanghai Shenhua. United have been linked with a host of forwards this month, including Leicester City’s Islam Slimani, who is keen to return from his loan deal at Monaco. Solskjaer has a host of injury headaches to deal with and the addition of Ighalo or any striker is sure to ease concerns about a depleted squad.Tags: Coronavirus crisisManchester UnitedOle Gunnar SolskjaerRomelu LukakuShanghai Shenhualast_img read more
