Yeah, there is great pic in the gallery of him jamming with Jerry.

He as a great contrast to Phil for Jerry.

He was with Jerry in just about everything - Legion of Mary, Reconstruction, JGB and Old and In The Way. Unfortunately he had if anything more problems than Jerry did and passed away less than a year after him.

Great bass player. Unfortunately, like Bloomfield and Garcia, his habits caught up with him :-(

That bass was up for sale at Florida dealer for $5k, about ten years ago. I wanted to grab it then (and should've :bkw)

John was a good upright player too!

Cool bass,
notice all the cigarette burns on the headstock!
I'm a big fan of John's playing.

John and David Kemper used too get some great grooves going in JGB.

I am almost afraid to ask whatever happened to David Kemper?

Kemper spent a bunch of time playing with Dylan, I'm thinking late 90's/early 00's.

And John Kahn was great with Jerry - their duo sets are great. I find myself listening to JGB more than Dead in recent years.

I heard John play that Fender bass with Jerry many times over the years. I used to love those JGB shows between Dead tours.
