Sam Cutler's book

Sam Cutler is doing a North America tour of book-signings and readings of his recently-released book. The book is on available at Amazon and is also on i-tunes as an i-phone ap, read in its entirety in his own voice. A simultaneous release like this is a publishing-industry first.

Tonight he is in Portland, where he will do readings as well as signing the book at Powell’s Books on Hawthorne at 3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd .
He's a wonderfully engaging man- I highly recommended that anyone in the area go, and meet him in person!

Sam Culter book

I just ordered a book by Sam Cutler about his days managing the Grateful Dead and the Stones. Should be a interesting read. The book is called: You Can't Always Get What You Want: My Life with the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead and Other Wonderful Reprobates. I found it on Amazon.

New Book!

For all you heads in the academy, and for those of us struggling to follow along, I wanted to share my excitement at a new publication:

The Grateful Dead in Concert: Essays on Live Improvisation
Jim Tuedio, Stan Spector, eds

My partner, Brent Wood, contributed an essay entitled "The Eccentric Revolutions of Phil Lesh". It is a great piece of work and feels good to see it in print after hours of conversation, listening and writing. He's already published an essay on Robert Hunter's poetry and psychedelic experience and is currently tackling the subject of Jerry & tragedy. These pieces will hopefully appear as a whole book in future.

This book is carefully put together with foreword by Stanley Krippner and contributions by the editors, Gimbel, Merriwether... the usual suspects and many others. Great writing, nice organization (tuning, first, 2nd, 3rd sets, encore...) and good ideas! Reads like a good show. Enjoy!

HI-- A friend recently made

A friend recently made a video trailer for my Grateful Dead inspired Young Adult book. If you have a second, take a look.

Grateful Dead and Philosophy

I haven't read the whole thing, but editor Steve Gimbel's essay is great. He examines whether the parking lot vending scene is a critique of pure capitalism or an instance of it. The author did time as a vendor, so his perspective is from the trenches. I enjoyed it! And Bud Fairlamb's essay cites my books a lot, so of course I like that one, too :^)

Sweet Chaos

Also recently read Carol Brightman's book - it looks at the Dead and the scene around them from a more socio-political perspective, which is interesting and at times enlightening. It certainly goes off on long excursions into the author's own experiences as a political activist in the 60s and beyond, but it all ends up tying together pretty well. Not mind candy but enjoyable nonetheless, and certainly interesting.

Anyone read that "Dead and Philosophy" book? I'm tempted but honestly it seems a little hokey. If I find it used somewhere I'll probably pick it up, but wondering what people have thought about it.

Growing Up Dead

Just finished Peter Connors' book - really enjoyed it. Definitely evokes the spirit and atmosphere of the shows, inside and out (that's inside the venue and outside in the lot, AND inside one's LSD-enhanced headspace and out!). Thanks for a good read.

Dark Star

I have Dark Star and it is not a hatchet job-it is interesting how people view the same events and times so differently. I know he could be very difficult but please a man that ill and he is not using a CPAP machine for his sleep apnea? A health resort admits him and doesn't have a doctor on premises or doesn't insist on a physical? Way too soon Way too soon

And the road goes on forever....
