We call ourselves Pearly Baker's Best and are currently doing some dates backing up David Gans. I have been pretty resistant to "going down the rabbit hole" and copping Garcia's licks and tones since I don't wish to be pigeon holed as another "Jerry" guy.

I personally find it extremely fun and challenging to master Garcia's tone and licks, and I find it the best complement of anything I do in life (except for being a dad) to hear that I've nailed Garcia's tone and style in my band. For me, its not only a labor of love, but a labor of necessity. I've wanted to play and sound like Jerry since I started seriously studying the Dead in 1983. I am indebted to the great advice I have received and followed from Rukind, most especially the relationship, advice, and I must say, mentoring, I have and continue to receive from Waldo. From equipment to playing style, I couldn't be happier going to down the rabbit hole. I wish John Mayer would go down it a bit more than just the Mutron as far as tone goes. Playing style I'm ok with, although for me, I'm more of a Jerry lick guy. Cheers, MM

Frank N Stein is doing great! I'm about to move to Marietta NY on some property with 60ft of lake rights on Otisco Lake!! Yeah!! IThanks to the great peeps on rukind I've acquired a mc250,an sms JG-1 and a pair of e-120s! I just need a hard trucker's style 2x12 cab to put it all together. All good things in all good time though, moving is pushing the cab off a little into the future. I play in 2 great bands doing the Jerry thang. Pearly Baker's Best is a GD tribute gaining momentum,we've played a bunch of shows with Mr David Gans and have an upcoming mini-tour joining him again, the other band is the Secret Squirrels which is a JGB tribute playing around the Syracuse,NY area! So much fun to get the chance to really dig into the music!! Filling in as guitar player tonight in Ithaca with a few guys calling themselves Lady in Red. Life is good at this time. Wahoooo!! Thanks rukinders!! Hope everyone is enjoying this summer!
