Ageing Grateful Dead musician Phil Lesh is still living the rock star lifestyle - he celebrated his 71st birthday on Tuesday night (15Mar11) by partying into the early hours of Wednesday morning (16Mar11).
The bassist held a bash at 230 Fifth in New York City after performing a gig with his latest project Further, which also includes the only other living Grateful Dead member, Bob Weir.
The group performed a medley of Beatles songs for their finale in front of other guests including musicians Robert Randolph, Steve Molitz and Warren Haynes.
Lesh's bandmates then surprised the star by bringing out a birthday cake at 3am, while onlookers cheered as he blew the flames out, reports New York Post gossip column Page Six.

All this article needs is to be factually accurate in order to be worth reading or sharing. "The bassist held a bash at 230 Fifth in New York City after performing a gig with his latest project Further, which also includes the only other living Grateful Dead member, Bob Weir."First of all, the band name is FurthUr. No E's necessary.Also, you may want to inform Bill Kreutzmann (Member: 1965-1995), Mickey Hart (1967-1971, 1974-1995, Tom Constanten (1968-1970), and Donna Jean Godchaux McKay (1972-1979) that they have all died. I am sure they would be interested to know.

Um...the only other surviving member of The Grateful Dead? What about Mickey Hart and Bob Kruetzman? Did I miss something here?
