Dave wrote Grey Street when he was 33

He’s 52. Perspective is wild.

In my opinion, that Conan O’Brien performance was the beginning of the end for the song.

It seems Dave’s bus burns potential in lieu of fossil fuels. He’s very green that way.

00/01 was definitely peak Grey Street. I don't disagree with your comment at all, but I think the real problem with the song is Rashawn.

I miss the extra verse + build it used to have, but the least they could do now is let Jeff have the outro to himself. This absolutely smokes. (I think Rapunzel is another example of a song that should rock with 4.0 but morphes into noise when Jeff/Rashawn play over each other on the outro).

Letting Jeff jam the end of Grey St. again would be a HUGE improvement. The horn battle is so bad

It seems like whenever they’re presented a way to put in less effort they take it every time

No one gives a damn about this, no offense. Grey Street was the last good song Dave wrote and the last good song DMB played when it was improv'd in 00 / 01. DMB died shortly thereafter.

Edit: Actually there's some good DMB songs in '04 with the improv and such, but that's about it.

I mean, You Never Know is a great DMB song. Also Stay or Leave and a lot of the dm&f stuff are good songs dave wrote in addition to what you mentioned. Good is a pretty low bar. Saying grey street is the last ‘good song dave wrote’ is one of the dumbest things anyone has ever said on this board. And you have some serious company. Now if you said ‘classic/great dmb song’ you could make an argument. It can open, close, gets a massive reaction, etc.

I just wish they'd tone down the noise, and Grey Street is public enemy #1 in that respect.

I actually think grey street sounded better the last year or so. Less Jeff/Rashawn playing over each other, slightly slowed down. Not back to what is used to be, obviously, but more listenable.

Grey Street started sounding a little better in 2018 and on for sure.
