Is Phil Lesh King Of The Dorks?

Pretty Dorky Right From The Get Go!

It started off suspicious and weird, in the '60s. The Dead were cooking off in San Francisco, putting out their version of rock 'n roll, all very cool. 

Dorky? Yes, Very

But there was a fly in the ointment, an issue, something not quite right. Yes, you guessed it, Phil Lesh, the notoriously dorky bassist for the Grateful Dead.

Well That's Straight

Even before Bob Weir started wearing shorts, Lesh was acting weird and stupid, copying Jerry's guitar and wearing tie die t shirts.

Not Dorky At All

Everyone put up with him because Jerry was cool and Phil was, you know, doing his own thing. But that didn't make Lesh less dorky, far from it, he doubled down.

Truly This Man Was The King of Dorks

Today, Phil Lesh is famous for giving Christine Fraud $10k. Does that cement his title as King of the Dorks? You, the reader, be the judge.

If he were to end up in the region of the White Wolf Mine, I expect that he'd be mauled by a bear, and what remains would be cleaned up by coyotes and vultures (all of which would get sick).

That's our Phil, LL. The Dead wrote some neat songs, I'd say, but that doesn't mean Lesh isn't King of the Dorks.

Somewhere all 27 dead members of the Dead hold their heads in shame.

Juliette, it's plain for all to see. Phil Lesh is King of the Dorks, he just is.

They do, Infidel and it's a terrible thing but there it is. And what's up with Weir and the shorts?
