Bob Weir – October 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Instantly, the two took to one another and began their journey into music history. Just about halfway through the month, on Oct. 16, the rhythm guitarist for one of America's most beloved jam bands celebrates his 65th birthday.
Since Garcia's death, Weir has focused largely on his own band, Ratdog. In 2011, he founded the Tamalpais Research Institute (TRI Studios), a high-tech recording studio/music venue which live-steams concerts online.
