More About Furthur: Phil Lesh & Bob Weir
In spite of the fact that Furthur is still a very young band, it’s already been through some changes. Jay Lane, who played drums and sang back up for the band, was only a part of the band for eight months before leaving to join the band Primus. Zoe Ellis was only with the band for six months before leaving in May of 2010. The band now has seven members, including Bob and Phil. Bob plays rhythm guitar and Phil plays bass. Both of them additionally sing lead vocals for the band. Lead guitarist John Kadlecik, who also sings lead vocals, has been with Furthur since the beginning. He is originally from Dark Star Orchestra, which was a popular Grateful Dead tribute band.
