The Dead live. In fact any number of bands lay partial claim to the Grateful Dead's legacy, but none come closer to the rambling, exploratory, intoxicating spirit of the Dead than RatDog, led by Dead rhythm guitarist, singer, and songwriter Bob Weir. Weir actually formed RatDog as a blues-oriented side project before Jerry Garcia's death and the Dead's demise. These days RatDog's repertoire is peppered with loads of Dead nuggets, which come up with unpredictable frequency, along with blues and rock standards by the likes of Dylan, the Rascals, Buddy Holly, and Chuck Berry. Current members include originals Rob Wasserman on bass and drummer Jay Lane, along with keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, guitarist Steve Kimock, and bassist Robin Sylvester. (Photo by Susana Millman)
