Phil Making New Friends?

Rumors have been flying fast and furious about which musicians will round out Phil Lesh’s lineup of Friends at the two stealth SOBs shows in New York next week.

Trey Anstasio back-up singer Christina Durfee posted on her MySpace page that she’ll be in the house that night, though she’s since yanked down the entry. That increased speculation that Big Red himself will be on stage with Phil, but now all signs are pointing to blues musician Larry McCray on at least one guitar spot.


According to the latest comments on McCray’s MySpace page:

Tomorrow Larry McCray celebrates with the start of six tour dates as a member of Phil Lesh and Friends. April 9th and 10th dates at S.O.B.’s in NYC are sold out. Larry will also be playing shows in San Francisco.

We’ll await official confirmation, and there’s a bit of confusion here — six tour dates? — but that comment sure makes it seem like he’s in the band. I’m smelling some late ’60s shit here, and I’m tasting an epic Viola Lee Blues.
