I feel deeply honored to have been one of the Deadheads interviewed by director Amir Bar-Lev and producer Ken Dornstein for the wonderful new documentary Long Strange Trip, which is debuting on Amazon Prime on June 2. Our interview took place on September 30, 2014 in my apartment in the Haight-Ashbury. I expected it to be a relatively brief exchange, but Amir and Ken and I ended up talking for hours because his questions were so sharp and wide-ranging.
You are probably already familiar with Grateful Dead scribe Steve Silberman. He's written countless essays and liner notes and even co-authored a book on the Dead, not to mention his co-producer credit on the must-have boxed set So Many Roads (1965-1995). But what do you really know about the man who so eloquently delivers the spirit of Spring '77 to this release?
