Song : Dent May : Shakedown Street (Grateful Dead cover)

Evidently, Dent May is a fearless young man. How else can one explain his willingness to stick his head in the lion’s mouth, and offer up a cover of a song from the beloved-by-many Grateful Dead? Admittedly, Shakedown Street isn’t exactly what I’d consider a classic tune from the high priests of Haight-Ashbury, and May seems to be having some fun with, so good for him. That being said, Deadheads aren’t a population I’d want gunning for me, especially with Phish on hiatus.

    phish isn’t on hiatus. they have been touring since 09. not to mention, they headlined bonnaroo this year. and shakedown street is the title track on one of the dead’s most popular albums.

    When you went to see the Dead, did you look forward to hearing Shakedown Street?

    @ Luftmensch – if you went to 10 dead shows in your life, you would’ve been lucky to hear the same song twice. never saw shakedown live and i went to 30+ shows. check out 1:23 mark in this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19qve36RSDY
