Oates enthused, “Jamming with Grateful Dead legend Bob Weir at the super-cool Sweetwater was the perfect way to end my West Coast tour.”
Sporting his Modulus G3FH guitar, Weir joined Oates on three songs: The Band’s “Up On Cripple Creek,” Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” and The Grateful Dead’s “West L.A. Fadeaway.” In July, Weir will perform at the “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead” concerts.
