I'll drink to your health, share your wealth, run your life, steal your wife. - Grateful Dead, U.S. Blues

Feeling "Grateful"
On October 16, 1947, Robert Hall "Bob" Weir a founding member of the Grateful Dead was born.Weir played mostly rhythm guitar and sang most of the band's rock-n-roll tunes (Jerry Garcia sang The Dead's more melodic tunes). He is known for his unique style of complex voice leading, bringing unusual depth and a new approach to the role of rhythm guitar expression.
On New Year's Eve, 1963,  a 16-year-old Weir and another underage friend were wandering the back alleys of Palo Alto, looking for a club to sneak into, when they heard banjo music. They followed the music to Dana Morgan's Music Store. At the store, a young Jerry Garcia, unaware of the the date, was waiting for his students to arrive. Weir and Garcia spent the night playing music together. It was then that they decided to form a band.  Originally called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, the band was later renamed The Warlocks and eventually the Grateful Dead.
Happy Birthday Bob!
