UnCategorized Phillip Chapman Lesh is a musician and a founding member of the Grateful Dead, with whom he played bass guitar throughout their 30-year career.After the band’s disbanding in 1995, Lesh continued the tradition of Grateful Dead family music with side project Phil Lesh and Friends, which paid homage to the Dead’s music by playing their originals, .mon covers, and the songs of the members of his band. Phil & Friends helped keep a legitimate entity for the band’s music to continue but have been on hiatus since 2008. Recently, Lesh has been performing with Furthur alongside former Dead bandmate Bob Weir.Lesh, along with other musicians that include James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, John Entwistle, Roger Waters, Brian Wilson, Jack Bruce, and Jack Casady, was an innovator in the new role that the electric bass developed during the mid-1960s. These players adopted a more melodic, contrapuntal approach to the instrument; before this, bass players in rock had generally played a conventional timekeeping role within the beat of the song, and within the song’s harmonic or chord structure. While not abandoning these aspects, Lesh took his own improvised excursions during a song or instrumental. This was a characteristic aspect of the so-called San Francisco Sound in the new rock music. In many Dead jams, Lesh’s bass is, in essence, as much a lead instrument as Garcia’s guitar.Lesh was not a prolific .poser or singer with the Grateful Dead, although some of the songs he did contribute"New Potato Caboose", "Box of Rain", "Unbroken Chain", and "Pride of Cucamonga"are among the best-loved in the band’s repertoire. Lesh’s high tenor voice contributed greatly to the Grateful Dead’s four-part harmony sections in their group vocals in the early days of the band, until he relinquished singing high parts to Donna Godchaux. In the 1980s, he resumed singing, but as a baritone. His interest in avant-garde music was a crucial influence on the Dead, pushing them into new territory, and he was an essential part of the group and its mystique, best summed-up in the Deadhead truism: "If Phil’s on, the band’s on". Also, a snippet of tape of Lesh on trumpet in college can be heard on the Bob Weir-.posed "Born Cross-Eyed." On October 26, 2006, Lesh released a statement on his official website, revealing that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer the disease that killed his father and would be undergoing an operation in December 2006 to have it removed. On December 7, 2006, Lesh released a statement stating that he had undergone prostate surgery with the cancer being removed. In March 2008, Phil Lesh did a guest voice on the .edy Central series Lil’ Bush on the second season episode "Big Pharm". In 2009, Lesh went back on tour with the remaining members of The Grateful Dead and called it The Reunion Tour. Following the 2009 summer tour Lesh proceeded to found a new band with Bob Weir named Furthur, which debuted in September 2009.Phil Lesh & Friends have not performed since New Year’s Eve 2008-2009.
