on the dead movie version, in addition to keith, it looks like someone else is also playing keyboards. I'm basing this off of memory but im pretty sure there is someone guesting on this song. if anyone knows who this guy is, it would be much appreciated

I cannot remember the year the GD Movie was made but the first name that pops into mind would be Tom Constaten. But I know for a fact the GD have had a few people in that seat as a guest and their guest appearances didn't really make news.

Might have been Ned Lagen

It was definitely Ned Lagin.

He toured with the dead from around 72ish to 74 and did Seastones with Phil and sat in during some jams. He usually wasn't high up enough in the mix for the audience to hear him though, and so it was mostly the band hearing him in their moniters.... I wish we could hear what he was playing.

That's weird that you saw him, because sometime after the big break from touring, he made the dead sign and agreement that they wouldn't use his likeness or his music in anything.
