Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of July 2, 2012

A very amusing press conference from 1987, announcing the release of a long-form Grateful Dead video titled So Far, which was later included in a boxed set titled All the Years Combined.

This is the source of Bob Weir's great quote, in reply to the question "Has success spoiled the Grateful Dead?"

"I was noticing the other night, for instance," Bobby said, "that when I'm going through pistachios - the hard-to-open ones, I don't bother with them any more."

Enjoy!
