The Other Ones: The Furthur Festival, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine CA

Marc Weingarten, Rolling Stone, 3 September 1998

THREE YEARS after the death of Jerry Garcia, Deadheads had their best reason yet to congregate and undulate as one. The Other Ones, a band featuring three surviving members of the Grateful Dead — guitarist-vocalist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh and drummer Mickey Hart, along with sometime Dead sideman Bruce Hornsby on keyboards and vocals — were the main attraction of this year's Furthur Festival tour, headlining a bill that included tribal popsters Rusted Root and veteran blooze rockers Hot Tuna.
