Re: “Cover Me

Oh, man. This would be a long and comprehensive list if I had the time and your readers had the interest in what I have to say. So, in the name of some sweet Tonic crossover (and in my constant defense of The Grateful Dead) I offer just a few that come to mind.

Elvis Costello, Levon Helm, Allen Toussaint, Nick Lowe, Richard Thompson, Larry Campbell smoke the ever lovin' crap out of The Dead's Tennessee Jed - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USFEZ_aMw74

Tom Petty covers Friend of The Devil - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT_HwzlroeM

Old and in the Way (Jerry Garcia's short-lived bluegrass super group) doing the Stones - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA35Oozc8NM (Note: This song will be performed at Tonic this year.)

Jerry Garcia did a ton of Dylan covers over the years. Here's Tough Mama - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KwB2e_r4HE

I can't find it online but Kate Lamont and Blueprintmusic do a gorgeous cover of The Dead's Brokedown Palace. It's amazing. Lucky for us, Kate is flying into Indy to play Tonic this year and Blueprintmusic will reunite to perform the song along with a few others.
