Robert “Bob” Weir, is an American musician most known for his work as a member of the Grateful Dead. Weir was born and raised in San Francisco, California, and began playing guitar at the age of thirteen, and met friend and lifelong lyricist John Barlow in high school. In 1963, Weir met Jerry Garcia for the first time, and quickly started a band known as Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions, which turned into The Warlocks, and eventually settled on the Grateful Dead.
Weir played rhythm guitar for the band and handled a large portion of the singing duties for the band. Weir is noted for his unique style, as his distinctive chord voicings give the band, which already features multiple drummers, an even fuller sound.
Weir released his first solo album, Ace, in 1972. The rest of his Grateful Dead bandmates served as the backing band; however, the album was credited to Weir as a solo artist. Weir also would join the group Kingfish in 1975 and 1976 while still in the Grateful Dead.
More recently, Weir formed Bob Weir and Ratdog, now known as just Ratdog. The band was formed in 1995, just before Garcia’s death on August 9th, 1995. The band is comprised of three core members: Weir on rhythm guitar, Rob Wasserman on bass, and Jay Lane on drums. That trio occasionally performs under the name Scaring the Children. Ratdog is also comprised of keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, guitarist Mark Karan, Kenny Brooks, and Robin Sylvester. The band released two albums, Evening Moods in 2000, and Live at Roseland in 2001. The band has been on hiatus since 2010 when Weir decided to take up his Furthur project full time.
Since 2009, Weir has toured full time with Furthur. Furthur is comprised of original members of the Grateful Dead Weir and bassist Phil Lesh. The band is also made up of former Dark Star Orchestra lead guitar player John Kadlecik, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti from Ratdog, and drummer Joe Russo from the Benevento/Russo duo. Backup singers Sunshine Becker and Jeff Pehrson have also been added to the band more recently, and former Ratdog drummer Jay Lane was an original member of the band; however, left to rejoin his original band Primus.
