RIP Vince Welnick

Vince Welnick, the last of four keyboard players for the Grateful Dead, died Friday.  I had the opportunity to see Welnick at the Dead show in Chicago in the early 90’s, prior to Jerry’s death.  I also saw a Dead show in Irvine, California (my first show) with his predecessor, Brent Mydland, who died in 1990.   Vince was 51 years old. 

The Dead released a statement:

"Our Grateful Dead prayer for the repose of his spirit: May the four winds blow him safely home."

 Rest In Peace, Vince.
