Video: Weir Here – Bob Weir, Sammy Hagar, Lukas Nelson, Jerry Harrison, Jay Lane, Robin Sylvester

Bob Weir continued his Weir Here performance / Q&A series last night via a live webcast originating from his TRI Studios facility in the Bay Area last night. For this ninth installment of Weir Here, the Furthur / Grateful Dead guitarist was joined by a cast of characters that included Talking Heads / Modern Lovers  keyboardist/guitarist Jerry Harrison, former Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar, singer/songwriter Lukas Nelson and RatDog rhythm section Robin Sylvester and Jay Lane.

Hagar, Weir’s longtime friend and neighbor, started things off by fronting the assembled musicians on Loose Lucy and Mustang Sally and backed up Nelson on JJ Cale’s Call Me The Breeze. Lukas then offered up his novelty song I’m Stuck with a Boner on a Bus Full of Guys before giving way to Harrison for a rollicking version of Life During Wartime. Bobby and Lukas shared lead vocals on a cover of Come Together by The Beatles which was followed the a pair of GD classics – Friend of the Devil and Althea. The group then tipped its cap to the other legendary act Harrison was a part of – Modern Lovers – by tackling She Cracked. For the finale, Weir led the ensemble through I Know You Rider.

Unlike other Weir Here’s, last night’s installment was just about the music with no Q&A session.
