YES to the Kimock guy though. He's better than JK, but he won't pay the direct homage to Jer the way JK will.
i did not know that direct homage was a requirement, if you ask me i would want a guitarist to get out there and do HIS or HER OWN thing they dont have to do Jerry's thing to create good music
JK does do his own thing.... Furthur is a reincarnation of the GD for all of us who MISSED Jerry. I really wish people would stop busting JK's balls.."He needs to start playing his own stuff and stop acting like Jerry"...John K is my Jerry and it is fine with me if the music he plays sounds a little like the good old GD. Nobody was busting balls when he was in DSO..why is that? Now JK is playing with Bob and Phil and everyone hates. Yes JERRY is gone....and it is ok to like another guitar player...I mean really...lets take this FURTHUR I'm watching Jerry's uncut Memorial service right now...Mickey Hart says " We've been working on this for over thirty years. The question is what are you going to do with it. Don't let this be for nothing"
Think for yourself, Escape the gene pools
