and they were playing their normal, almost too loud for the place Urban Outfitters/GAP/trendy but not offensive background music, then out of the blue THIS came on...LOUD:

I had forgotten about this song since my last drunken late night music-thats-too-loud-for-my-hood 2 am after the bar music session. Kickass tune.

one that gave them the name. Second, do you think he'd hang out with them if he thought them to be a ripoff?

It sounds like the Black Crowes had kids, and they started a band.

That's rock and roll though.

The Black Crowes went through MUCH louder criticisms from the press and the public of being a derivative band in their career than BBS ever will.

While hanging out with Howard Stern, Chris Robinson had some disrespectful words for John Mayer. As a matter of fact, they were pretty disrespectful to every musician that plays the music of The Grateful Dead for a living. During his talk with Stern he said, “The Grateful Dead has turned into this giant nipple that everyone sucks off of to get money. I’m not a big John Mayer fan. Jerry Garcia is a hero of mine. Everything that Jerry Garcia ever talked about or stood for – John Mayer is the antithesis.” He went on to say, “He knows all the licks, there’s nothing unique about his playing. Jerry was one of the most unique musicians in the world. Jerry never played anyone else’s licks and now here’s John Mayer playing everyone else’s licks.”


I’ve got some news for Chris Robinson. For starters, I’ve seen you play several times with Phil and any attempt you make at being unique, while playing Grateful Dead music, sucks more ###### peter than a crackhead #### star. You talk about someone else’s licks with absolutely none of your own. You might as well just sit up there with some maracas or a ###### triangle. You couldn’t put together a lead to save the life of a loved one and you’re gonna run your mouth like you can play. There’s one thing unique about Mayer’s licks, you couldn’t play a single #### one of em… You know what’s the antithesis of Garcia? Going on a radio show and talking #### about a musician playing with 3/6ths of his band you ###### droopy eyed, weak strummin, murdering Sugaree every time you sing it, bag of egotistical ####.


You talk about the Grateful Dead nipple that everyone sucks off of for money yet you’ve been a part of numerous nipple sucking collaborations. Here’s some breaking news Kris, NONE of them have produced music that could serve as a #### bucket to hold the urine that Dead & Company relieve themselves of at Set Break. When you made that comment, I wonder if you considered how many musicians you were insulting. When asked about Mayer, Clapton said, “He’s a master guitar player.” When asked about Chris Robinson, Clapton said, “Who the #### is Chris Robinson?” Mayer has done one thing for sure, he’s treated the opportunity and the material as a sacred body of work. At no time has he showed anybody within the community of people that play Grateful Dead music anything but respect. Not only could you learn something about that from him, he could probably teach you how to play an instrument at the same time. Mayer is probably one of the only musicians that play with any of the living legends that takes an enormous pay cut to do so. He makes more money than you, he sells more tickets and albums than you, he has A TON more fans than you and he’s grown the #### up. You sound like he did when his head was still up his ###. When you’re old or dead, you know how many musicians will be able to provide for their families by performing YOUR music for a living??? Absolutely zero. None. Nobody…


After that, you went on to talk #### about your own brother, a dude that created something with you that gave you the opportunities that you’ve had throughout your life. Your own blood. You know what’s the antithesis of Garcia? Going on the the ###### radio and trashing your own blood. How many people do you have to have problems with before you consider the possibility that the real #### in your life might be you? While Mayer is playing nearly sold out stadiums with your hero’s band mates this summer and selling out arenas on his own tour, you’ll be playing small, half sold theaters with your Brotherhood which is a pretty ###### up name since you obviously can’t get along with your brother worth ####. “Jealous Again?” You think something unique is happening in your band? It’s just like the Black Crowes only half as good. Maybe Phil will throw you a bone and you can make the Dead catalog sound like some ###### sounding noise as a back up member of The Friends while Mayer is killing it, playing the music that we wanna hear, like we wanna hear it. I love Phil and his friends but I need to hear you singing Garcia’s tunes like I need to lose a ######## in a chainsaw accident. I’m not even mad, I’m pretty #### happy right now, but you can go jump in a lake of ##### bro! Maybe you can sell more tickets if you start playing after parties following Dead & Company Shows.


Jerry never played anyone else’s licks except for the 200 cover tunes he played regularly. One thing is absolutely true. Garcia improved upon every song he ever decided to play. Something you’ve never done in your entire career. Any attempt you’ve made at playing one of Garcia’s tunes has had the same result. The song has suffered like a dying goat being violated by a horny soldier.


“If you plant ice you’re gonna harvest wind” Rant over… In Loving memory of Tito Garcia… Love y’all!!!

Kind like TOTE1's "cool guy laughing".

But yes, at least at Chipotle, I have some say in how the end product will taste. At Mac's, its up to the ambient air temp, how well the fridge has been working, when they got the last shipment in, and when the last time the cook got laid.

Just too many variables.
