    Dead Notes #15 - Mickey Hart Interview
    I had the extreme pleasure of sitting down with Mickey for a couple hours after the first Boston Garden show in November. We covered a lot of topics from music to life and just about everything in between. I hope you enjoy! https://aquariumdrunkard.com/2018/01/09/dead-notes-15-the-mickey-hart-i…

    Mickey Hart Band 2011
    Hey Mickey, I was at your show in August at the Independent and the new band sounded great! I loved the lyrics and the variety of rhythms, though I always want to hear more of Sikiru. It felt good to soak in the vibrations from beneath your little beam. Thanks for making our first trip to San Fran a memorable one! HAPPY BIRTHDAY and many happy returns.

Mickey added alot to the sound with his all world percussion but took away some of the ability to change direction mid jam that Billy on his own was the master of.

Thanks for the awesome and sweet sounds last night, Mickey. I took my oldest son to the show and we had a grape time. Have you seen such atrocities, Mr. Hunt? I've seen the fork...

Hey Y'all, Just wanted to let everyone know that the Global Drum Project is featured in the Jan./ Feb. '08 issue of Global Rhythm. It's a great read for anyone interested! Mickey & Hussain talk about the new album, drums (of coarse!), cultural and musical heritage, and much more! Global Rhythm offers a FREE digital version of magazine online: Check it out: http://globalrhythm.net/digitalmagazine/

http://www.rexfoundation.org/foodforthought/drumsforpeace.html Recently I got to work on a cool story for the Rex Foundation concerning a project Mickey had connected them with--a woman who's a drum circle leader who got invited to Iraq to teach people drumming as a peacemaking tool. Part of the story--a Mickey interview, which is available as both text and MP3. Check it out!

Hey- I'm all for it. God bless you and keep you in his protective hands Christine Stevens. We need a paradigm shift, and I can't think of a better way to do it! BTW- Whatever happened to The Rhythm Devils?? They rocked my world in the fall of '06, and never heard anything since. Amazing arrangement with Mickey, Billy, Mike Gordon, Steve Kimmock, etc. Just curious if anyone knows.

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?

I'm searching for a name of the band that MIckey played in with Merle Saunders, Jim Mc pherson and Bobby Vega in the 80's. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

So what exactly did Mickey do dpito? Was it during the show? Not having been there it is hard to understand what the problem is. Can you explain. Thanks.

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, All the best and many more to come. Your contribution has been, and is priceless. Your work as a musicologist alone should ensure your legendary status. I firmly believe that all great music connects us with the spirit of the cosmos and brother, you truly do drum "on the edge of magic"!
