    And one of my favorites. Was a brilliant guitarist and songwriter(music) and a good defacto band leader in the moment.. And his voice could melt me into a puddle some nights.. And his style could switch flawlessly from genre to genre..

    Those are important things to being a musician to me..
    Agreed. Love Jerry. He was a force, a gentle force, but a force nevertheless.

He was that great—much more than a superb musician with and uncanny ear and dexterity. He is the very spirit personified of whatever is muddy river country at its core and screams up into the spheres. He really had no equal. To me he wasn't only a musician and friend, he was more like a big brother who taught and showed me more than he'll ever know. There are a lot of spaces and advances between the Carter Family, Buddy Holly and say, Ornette Coleman, a lot of universes, but he filled them all without being a member of any school. His playing was moody, awesome, sophisticated, hypnotic and subtle. There is no way to convey the loss. It just digs down really deep."

    I had not read that before but I don't doubt it in the least. Jerry helped Bob out of his funk and helped Bob reconnect with his own music during the Dylan/Dead tour. From what I understand: At the time ( c. 1987 ) Jerry had presented Dylan with an opportunity to tour with the Dead, Dylan was not feeling a connection to his own past, his music from the 60's and was not interested in playing his own old songs. Jerry helped him see the value in those songs and the rest is history.

    I have to throw Trey Anastasio into the conversation. Particularly, with some of the projects he's created in the last decade including: The Symphonic Shows, Solo Performances, Ghost of the Forest, Trey Band (Going to see them Saturday in New Haven) and all the "stunts" that Phish has pulled off including Kasvot Vox. A creative force, a virtuoso and fortunately on the reverse trajectory of Jerry G.

    Can't deny a Trey vote. In my circle of friends, Jerry and Trey would get the top two votes. Third place is a toss up. The devote following of both for decades is kinda unmatched.

    Both he and his band certainly was on top of what was happenning!

    Enjoyed Miles Davis's compositions.
    Enjoyed Jack Sheldon's sound....(West Coast studio/+jazz trumpeter). Life is sure ironic, has a housemate in Brighton, MA...back in 80s...used to play acoustic guitar(jazz/country) on west coast(70s)...that would get together and jam with Sheldon & others. Had fun stories to tell.
    HA!, my "favorite" people in music are OLD stuff ...been out of music world for ~half a century.. ...with the terrific-NOT environment at my old high school...it was either drugs or hang in the music wing...I think I would've wasted less time in life by choosing drugs.

    He wasn't bad before he left either

    Some early Beatlemania featuring John's vocals on Twist and Shout:
