Special April 1 Report

Last month we reported that Furthur drummer Jay Lane has left the group to begin a stint with Primus. He has just announced, however, that he will “preserve and perpetuate” the music of the former group, with his new band, Farther. Not wishing to tarnish the Furthur legacy, Lane has tapped some fitting players, including “that guy from Dark Star Orchestra who sort of looks like a mid-70s Bob Weir in that one promo shot,” someone with a 420 email handle, at least one Liza Minnelli impersonator and Joe Russo.
