Bob Weir and Ratdog Background

Guitarist Bob Weir originally hails from California, growing up in the suburban town of Atherton. Weir began playing guitar at the age of 13. He first went to Menlo Atherton High School but his mounting problems with undiagnosed dyslexia and poor academic performance led his frustrated parents to send him to Fountain Valley High School, a boarding school. Eventually he was kicked out of Fountain Valley and ended up spending time in Palo Alto, wandering onto the Bay Area folk-music scene. Countless days were spent at a record store where Jerry Garcia offered guitar lessons. Weir spent his evenings at the Tangent, where he was exposed to seeing some rock legends unravel, including Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane, as well as that guy from the music store, Jerry Garcia.

When Bob Weir was only 17, Garcia persuaded him and Ron "Pigpen" McKernan to form a folk-rock band coined Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions. Weir assumed the role as their rhythm guitarist. Eventually the band's name became the Grateful Dead, expanding to include bass guitarist Phil Lesh, and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, along with numerous keyboardists over the life of the band. Throughout the 1970s, the Dead played nearly 100 shows annually, but that didn't prevent Weir from working on independent musical projects, including his debut solo album, ACE in 1972. He additionally performed and recorded with other music groups like Bobby and the Midnites and Kingfish.

In the late 1980s, Weir collaborated with bassist Rob Wasserman and the pair toured over a seven-year period under the monikers of Weir/Wasserman as well as Scaring the Children. In 1994, the duo played Woodstock '94. Jay Lane was added to the mix on drums in 1995 and Matthew Kelly played the harmonica and guitar.

Following the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995, the Grateful Dead disbanded in 1995. Also in 1995, Ratdog played their first official show, reviving Grateful Dead classics along with their own original material and covers from influential musicians like Bob Dylan. Ratdog's inventory is comprised of more than 150 songs.

Since the beginning of 2010, Ratdog had taken a break while Weir went on tour with Furthur. The original Ratdog members, including Weir, Jay Lane and Wasserman, additionally played throughout 2009 and 2010 under the guise of Scaring the Children.

Ratdog's current lineup is comprised of Weir, Jeff Chimenti, Jay Lane, Mark Karan, Robin Sylvester and Kenny Brooks.
