#67 GRATEFUL DEAD!
And introducing…on drums, it’s Bill Kreutzman. Working rhythm for the band that put the Jam in “Jam Band,” we’ll learn all about his humble bay area beginnings, his three acid-soaked decades in the Grateful Dead, and how everything from the Great Pyramids to San Francisco garbage-men is “far out”, all from his book “DEAL: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams and Drugs with the Grateful Dead”.

#66 Dave Matthews Band!
And introducing…Dave Matthews Band! We’re talking the terminally normie jam band that ruled the 90’s by examining Dave, what made him so big, and what kind of legacy – if any – he created. We also do a fair bit of talking about the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame (DMB’s failure to be inducted this year inspired this ep) and why we love to hate these prestigious lists.
