Phish's Trey Anastasio Open To More Grateful Dead Shows

Grateful Dead

(Classic Rock) Phish frontman Trey Anastasio says he's open to playing more gigs with the Grateful Dead. Anastasio guested on guitar with surviving Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir on a run of dates in 2015, under the banner of the Fare Thee Well tour.

The shows were said to be the last time Hart, Lesh, Weir and Kreutzmann would appear on stage together, but former basketball player and long-time Dead fan Ball Walton hinted in April that the group could perform again this summer.

Now Anastasio has added fuel to the fire. Asked whether he'd return if invited, he tells Rolling Stone: "I'm open all the time. I had such a good time playing with Bob and hanging out with Bob. I spent a week out at his beach house before the Fare Thee Well tour. The two of us just played.

"We sat on two little stools in his living room and just played and talked and it was fantastic. He's such a good guy, and really fun. And I got to go to Phil's and spend time with him and his family before the shows. Billy came to New York and played drums with me.

"So, I mean, I love those guys, and I'm always open. I'm grateful for the opportunity." Read more here.
