what is the general consensus ? Who do YOU prefer handling the leads? I thought Trey was GREAT but J.M. is blowing my mind and I think PRS guitars are the best guitars made and I love his tone. This is just awesome that he turned into a friggen' deadhead and the music never stops!
I think what I saw was a situation where you have a guy who appears to be having a blast, being given the freedom to do it his way, and, if he stays with it, could be the guy to lead this music to future generations when none of the original guys are around to do it. I'll be interested to see if they ever work any of John's older original material into the set.
I do think that they should stay away from certain stuff though. I don't think the space is the same without Jerry. He had a way of hitting these other worldly sounds that just pierced you. Not hearing that from John, and wondering if or why I should.
I like the energy of this band probably more than any post-Jerry band I have heard.
