Richard Loren: How Egypt Happened

As part of our celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the legendary Grateful Dead shows in Gizah, Egypt, we're offering a new 35-minute interview with former Grateful Dead manager Richard Loren.  Richard is also Executive Producer on Rocking the Cradle: Egypt 1978.

Here Richard Loren talks with David Gans about the inspiration and planning that brought about these monumental shows.  Richard also shares some very cool behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

Click here to hear the entire interview (35 minutes).

(Note: There's a reference to "IA guys" - that means stagehands, members of the IATSE, International Association of Theater and Stage Employees.)

I must admit that sounds mightily permissable, a nice bottle of vintage Murine!

Nice

I for one would like to have seen the long form Egypt documentary that Mr. Loren proposed.... but like he also said, I'm just grateful for what I do get. Thanks guys for a nice interview. Now I just gotta find my little Murine bottle before those discs get here....

Thanks David and Richard

Thanks for the "back story" on how this incredible chapter of Dead history came about. Now I am waiting every so patiently for my copy to arrive. Is it Tuesday, yet? Peace Rick
