Rhythm guitarist Bob Weir has gone through many a transformation since his days as one of the Grateful Dead's founding members (we can thank him for staples like "Truckin'," "Sugar Magnolia," and "Cassidy," among others). RatDog became Weir's main gig in the mid-90s, and for fifteen years, the rock outfit switched out dozens of notable band members, released two full-length albums and performed live shows the world over. After a three-year hiatus, the well traveled and ever-evolving road players are back in LA to perform what is now a snarling rock sound with jazz-influenced soul. Catch them at the Greek July 2.
