Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section, but as he's a Phil band member I thought it'd be better suited here.

Anyway, Luis Conte, why? Just watching one of the Not Dead Yet shows on YouTube and wondering why he's there. I get why he was brought in for the DITL tour and big band stuff for the world music sound Phil was going for at the time, but I just don't think he serves a purpose in the new show, nor the Finally tour. No doubt others will disagree, but I find he sounds out of place for 90% of the songs. No disrespect to him as a musician/percussionist, it's just not for me.

Personally i think should have brought Chester out of retirement for one last horrah on this tour!

Both him and nic could have been a powerhouse in the percussion section.

The wall of sound has been a bit muddy in recent tours with so many people on stage, especially compared to the Perkins Palace era, it looks good, but through a pair of headphones it's hard to pick out parts. I was watching Leland Sklar do some lovely stuff on his 'RESIST' bass, but frustratingly couldn't hear a thing.

But this tour, with Phil's lack of mobility, and Nic's youth, the backup's play a very important role. It proved more enjoyable than the Final farewell to me. Though Phil's chair could do with being on a raised platform, so the floor can see him when the crowd stand up.

I'd also like to see a double drum tour with Chester and Nic, if it could be made to work. It would open up the setlist to some of the jazzier/darker possibilities.

Another percussionist, (Steve Forman) was tried out for the Both Sides tour, but the idea was canned.
