If it's not a Grateful Dead reunion, it's awfully close.

Three of the band's surviving members - Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir - say they will tour the United States this summer in the "Further Festival." They are part of a group calling itself The Other Ones, after a Dead song.It will be the first time the three have performed together since 1995, when Dead leader Jerry Garcia died. Drummer Bill Kreutzmann declined because he did not want to tour.
