Today on "Tales from the Golden Road" we're interviewing Peter Conners, author of Growing Up Dead: The Hallucinated Confessions of a Teenage Deadhead. I like this book a lot. The title is more sensationalistic than the tale itself.
4-6pm eastern on Sirius 32/XM 57.
If the Dead want to play One More Saturday Night I wish they would try doing it as a first or second set opener. I hate it when they close the show with it cause when you here the opening notes you know the show is over and then start hoping they'll play a good encore. As for Johnny B. Goode, if it's not a part of a 2- song encore, don't bother !
actually I guess you guys did great and it's my crappy car stereo that doesn't have enough thunder.
and thanks for the live Worchester show. My only complaint is that everything was turned up a couple clicks higher than the drum mix and there wasn't enough thunder, esp. on songs like Terrapin. As for the show, I thought One More Sat. Nite and a little four minute Johnny B. Goode encore was a disturbingly lame way to end the show. I know $100 to the boys holds about as much value as a penny does to the rest of us and they cannot understand the sacrifices their fans have had to make to attend these shows. But overall I thought they sounded pretty good and their were some very enjoyable moments.
There's live dead on from Worcester Mass. as we speak.....very cool btw.
Loved the Tipper Gore interview after she jammed with The Dead the other night. While they were doing the interview Bobby comes by and they start talking and Tipper starts a rap about the spiritual side of drumming and Bobby's like "I've heard That before", and then "I'm gonna go get a drink". Hilarious!
I hope our buddies at Sirius are doing well. I'm wondering if they are going to turn us on to some live Dead. I think a Madison Square Garden show would be worthy of a broadcast through-out the world and across the universe, maybe a Shoreline too!
thanks for the heads up!
