Thread dropped to page 2 so bumping up. Figure I get to take a turn since nobody jumped in.

Two longtime members served in the Armed Forces before they were in this band . One enlisted in the US Army at 17, completed basic training, got a general discharge after a few months on the basis of "lack of suitability to the military lifestyle." The other was in the US Air Force - taught martial arts in Europe for the Strategic Air Command.

Mickey Hart was in the Air Force . I don't know about Lesh

googled Lesh: Successfully auditioned for the Sixth Army Band, but was not allowed to join because he was "deemed unfit for military service".

Robert Hunter enlisted in the National Guard, six months training, six month tour of duty.

got the right answer for the wrong reason

next question

This "Band" was led by a multi - instrumental string player. His 4th album was the 1st one to be labelled as "band". Bandmembers included fiddle, mandolin, bass, drums, sax, and trombone. Jerry Garcia appeared as a guest on one of the solo albums, George Harrison co-wrote on a song on another. Don't let the glasses fool you, he will not be your fool.

Like I said, I cheated, did google.

It is pretty hard to make these google proof - I googled like mad on the Mahavishnu and Starfleet , nothing.

Ok, here's one:

This band had a top ten hit - prevented from becoming #1 because of the #1 song by an artist of Armenian descent posing as a Native American.

Name the artist, not band, who first sang about some joker getting lucky and stealing his girl back from the singer.

Good tries, guys. But no cigarillo...
I will say the artist is obscure, the song is (was) well known....
The young whippersnappers running on your lawn won't have a clue probably

Btw. Well known song, but not by the original artist.
