It's official. Bob Weir and Phil Lesh and the Furthur band played the last night of their 4 night stand in Mexico last week. The hugs on stage mark the beginning of their "hiatus" from playing as Furthur. Phil Lesh will continue with Phil & Friends in 2014 and Bobby is bringing RatDog back to life with shows at the Capitol Theatre in 2014 as well. The other guys will go with Phil or with Bobby, who knows. Whatever happens, it can easily be said that Furthur is one of the finest post Jerry bands.

The JerryGarcia.com web site has recently gone through a digital face-lift. The Rolling Stone magazine announces this Jerry makeover in their January 17, 2014 article. This new Jerry page is devoted to all things Jerry and will provide a place for interactive connection for fans - deadheads - to find each other on Shakedown Street. The family of the late Jerry Garcia have provided rare photos, plus links to fun facts, live music and The Jerry Store.
