On the final night of this past weekend’s Wanee Festival at the beautiful Spirit of Suwanee Music Park, Bob Weir and the Campfire Band returned to the Peach Stage for a headlining performance–their second of the weekend. At his Campfire Band shows, Weir has made a habit of starting the show with a solo acoustic segment before inviting the band to join him for the rest of the performance. For his festival-closing set, Weir welcomed a very special second guest guitarist for the show’s acoustic portion–Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, who had just finished his own set with Trey Anastasio Band on the same stage.The surprise collaboration sent the Wanee crowd–and, in turn, social media–into a frenzy. From the Grateful Dead‘s Fare Thee Well shows to Weir’s precedent-shattering sit-in with Phish in Nashville last Fall, when the worlds of Phish and the Dead collide, the fervent fans of both bands reliably respond with resounding enthusiasm. However, while the performance alone was enough to stoke the fires of excitement for fans, the main story of the acoustic duo set centered on an unlikely song choice: For the final song of the segment, the two jam band titans chose perform a cover “Million Reasons,” the worldwide hit 2016 single by pop mega-star Lady Gaga. You watch HD video of the re-worked cover below, courtesy of YouTube user Suwannee HD Streams:While the worlds of Phish/The Grateful Dead and the world of contemporary pop music don’t often collide, word of the surprising cover made its way back to Gaga, who took to Twitter to profess her gratitude: “LEGENDS coverin #MillionReasons wow! Trey & Bob I’m so honored this made my day such a dream come true!” read the grateful post. Lady Gaga has identified as a Deadhead before, as she explained on the Howard Stern show, which can be listened to below courtesy of ShaunAKABear.While we don’t know whether or not Lady Gaga is a fan of Phish as well, she’s clearly familiar enough to know that either of the two guitarists covering her song–let alone them covering it together–is an enormous honor. Props to Gaga for giving love where love is due.

Kaymer’s 66 was the lowest round of a cold, damp day, while Iwata birdied two of the last three holes for a 68 in his first appearance in a WGC event. Watson had been McDowell’s closest challenger when he birdied the second and third and then almost holed his approach to the 603-yard eighth hole for an albatross, but missed the eagle putt from five feet and had to settle for a birdie. The left-hander then made a costly mistake on the 10th when his simple approach to the green plugged in a bunker, from where he could only blast out to 40 feet and three-putt for a double bogey. But after dropping another shot on the 12th, Watson birdied four of the last five holes, marred only by a three-putt bogey on the 17th. ” I played reasonably solid today,” said McDowell, who has yet to win a WGC title. “I thought conditions were a little bit more difficult, colder, obviously a little bit of overnight rain made the golf course play a little bit longer. “I didn’t quite score as well as I did the last couple days but really gave myself some confidence from a ball-striking point of view that I can get the job done tomorrow. ” And let’s be honest. Yes, I had a three-shot lead overnight and it’s only one now, but I’ll take this position any week that you offer it to me, a one-shot lead going into the last round on a golf course that I enjoy. “I am excited about the challenge tomorrow and really looking forward to it. Press Association “It would be huge to win but I can accept whatever happens. I feel like I am turning the corner from a lot of points of view, mentally, physically and in my personal life a lot of good things are going on. “I am excited about another opportunity to win a golf tournament. If it happens I will be very happy, if not things are moving in the right direction.” McDowell admitted had never heard of nearest challenger Iwata before this week, but the world number 127 revealed he is quite well known in his native Japan. “I’m kind of relatively short tempered, so I always focus not to get too angry at myself,” Iwata said. “I believe I’m doing pretty good at that at the moment, so I just want to keep that going.” Asked if he usually got angry quickly, Iwata added: “I ‘m pretty famous for that in Japan.” US Open champion Kaymer could be McDowell’s biggest threat given his record at the venue, the German shot a closing 63 on his way to victory three years ago and also holds the course record of 62. “Finally I could make some putts today, that was nice,” the 29-year-old said. “The first two days I played really well but the putter was a little cold. “Today I make a couple mid-distance putts, only one bogey so I think I put myself in a good position. ” Obviously you need a little help from Graeme in order to win, but I’m playing really well and that’s all I can do.” World number 10 Rickie Fowler and South African Tim Clark are three off the lead on eight under par, with last year’s runner-up Ian Poulter and Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen another shot back. Poulter had been in second place at halfway but could only manage a third round of 72. Graeme McDowell insisted he was relishing the challenge after his domination of the WGC-HSBC Champions came under serious threat in Shanghai. Two ahead after the opening round and three in front at halfway following a second successive 67, McDowell was four shots clear of a star-studded field late in the third round at Sheshan International on Saturday. However, the former US Open champion then bogeyed the 17th in a round of 71 to finish 11 under par, one ahead of Japan’s Hiroshi Iwata and two ahead of Ryder Cup team-mate Martin Kaymer and Masters champion Bubba Watson.
