“I have spent my life/Seeking all that’s still unsung/Bent my ear to hear a tune,” sang Phil Lesh final night, harmonizing with colleagues new and old, on “Attics of My Life,” a final strain of a fraught, moving, eventually pretentious five-night, two-state Fare The Well unison array â€” billed as a final shows that a flourishing members of a Grateful Dead will ever perform together. The final unison was also a run’s strongest, showcasing a new rope attack a walk precisely as it was set to retire. The new guys â€” Phish’s Trey Anastasio, RatDog’s Jeff Chimenti and returning moonlighter Bruce Hornsby â€” found equal balance and ideal sync with strange rope members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzman and Mickey Hart. It was transparent from a opener, “China Cat Sunflower” into “I Know You Rider,” one of a band’s many emblematic and manly pairings. When Anastasio and Hornsby, not Weir or Lesh, traded lead vocals on a former, it felt like a flame was passed. And when a 70,000 fans sang “I know we rider/Gonna skip me when I’m gone” during a latter, it was like they were singing those difference to any other.
