Rock the boat

Right on Hart! Conservative conformism is death to an artist and creativity. Frankly, it is death to an evolving society. Play and write what you feel. Those that don't like it or take offense can split, change the channel, hit the off button, etc, etc.. Expand. Open. Stretch

SPIN.com sat down with drummer Mickey Hart before the band's Long Island show. Hart, 65, told us about the reunion, why this President is different from the last, and how drumming might one day cure Alzheimer's.

Interview here.

Mickey's political commentary.

I am a HUGE Mickey fan. With that said, I must call him out on the immoral things he's done with his pre-recorded tracks this tour. I believe that it is generally agreed that it is wrong to take a public figure's comments and splice them together in such a way as to make it appear that they were saying precisely the opposite of their true intent, which is exactly what Mr. Hart did on 4/26 in Worcester (you'd all be pissed if done to President Obama.). Mickey, If you read these boards, then I ask if you would appreciate someone doing the same to you. In addition, please understand that you have conservative fans as well, and most of us are decent human beings who want the best for our communities and country, and we do not appreciate being called arrogant racists. You do not know me, and I doubt you would even take a minute to try to understant my views. Please stop treating a not insignificant number of your fans like crap. Thank you.

The Volcano at the Mirage Hotel Casino

Mickey Hart was on the local news this morning, KTVK 3 in Phoenix. He was standing in front of the new volcano at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Mickey and Zakir Hussien are in Vegas for the grand opening tonight. The reporter wasn't clear about Mickey's involvement in the sound production for the installation. Mickey talked about his and Zakir's shared interest in volcanoes and he described the project as one of the "Seven Sonic Wonders of the World".
Also, he hinted at the possibility of the band doing a tour next year. "Once around the carousel". Sounds good to me.

Mickey

The last time I saw Mickey was at the Flynn in Burlington, Vt. He put on the absolute best show. Probably the best of his that I've ever been to. 5-6 years ago? Anybody there?
