Dead & Company: Oteil Burbridge’s “Eyes of the World” Solo
Fan clips and audio of the Dead & Company’s recent Halloween performance at Madison Square Garden have been trickling onto the web over the past few days, proving that the group is firing on all cylinders. The band features three original Grateful Dead members – Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann – with the “company” consisting of John Mayer, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, and bassist extraordinaire Oteil Burbridge.
The veteran low-ender shared his excitement with the group on his Facebook page, saying, “It’s been a long time since I have raced home to listen to shows that I just played.”
While the video is shot from afar, here’s a great clip of Burbridge’s first bass solo with the band during “Eyes of the World” from that night.
