"Welcome back to the noise pop. Podcast I'm your host Adrian. Spinelli come and see you from different studios in San Francisco California. We've got a great episode for you today. Rejoining the studio by the man behind confession here at my favorite album of twenty nine thousand Roberto Carlos Lingerie better known by stay shame allow NATO. Latest album is called. This is how you smile. It's out now and revenge international and Roberto's here in San Francisco to play at Great American music hall tonight as part of noise pop festival. Twenty twenty and he's here right now in the flesh a different I studios this morning to share his my mix with us more on that in a second but first Roberto Hello. Hey thank you so much for spending part of your morning with us. Thanks for having me. This is cool. This is cool The show is sold out tonight. Yeah I heard. Yeah Pretty Awesome. Well deserved I think the last time you played the chapel last year? When you're on the album tour yeah and I was at that and the noise pop put on a show at McLaren Park at the Jerry Garcia amphitheater. Yeah and awesome with Mexican ensued. Sounds out it was super fun very goal. We we're we're continuing the noise pop relationship here with with a lot of grow So let's see us some background for listeners. On you here Were you born in Florida? I was born in Florida. Your parents are originally from Ecuador they are and they settled into New York then went to Florida. And now you've been in Brooklyn for at least a decade may be too yeah I I. I moved around a lot but moved to New York in two thousand six go And this album. That just came out. This is how you smiles your sixth studio l. p. and then there's been a four volume series that kind of comes intermittently in between a story. Yeah Yeah Part. One two three and four. This album was disarm really grabbed me because I think it's I mean there's there's been so much has been written like. Oh It's his best work today but I think it's it's kind of fully formed in a certain way. I think that your music really has had an evolution year. Discography talk a little bit about that evolution. And what you've arrived at with. This is how you smile. I believe it's maybe it's hard to have perspective on the evolution of what I've done and looking at it now but more so because they almost always feel like. I'm like the same person I've always been for a long time and I think the things that you experienced kind of like just become a part of you and it's not something that I'm like hyperfocused onto like be like. Oh this is what's changed but I think was making this music. I think what change specifically for this record was The process in which I made it. Which in the past. Ev always made all my on my work and music and I still do at home at a home studio and it sure that's base with My partner and my wife and her and I are always like present with each other while we're working but then also sometimes it's it's kind of like you know if you have somebody else that you're just like hanging hanging around with at Edison here. There's there's a lot of for lack of a better word distraction like you kind of see each other exactly what you mean as somebody who works at home with their partner as well and ended some so this. The process for this record was a little bit different where I was able to work at a two different studios or three different studios. And they're like more private studios like friends were letting me use them or else renting them from them and and it was a more of like an isolated affair in terms of spending way more time. Kind of like with a lot less distraction and just focus and attention every day So I think in terms of evolution that kind of understood that I needed that to look at the work that I was doing in a different in a different way in a more hyperfocused way and I think that was that was like the outcome of of just that like the record for sure. This is how you smile. I think your your music has always had this like self analysis aspect to it like you're always kind of your coming to terms with your identity and who you are and Maybe in this. Is You say this isolated environment. was a way for you to tap into realizations that maybe you hadn't arrived at in the past definitely. Yeah and and it's just pulling from what you know. I mean like that's kind of like whenever I've worked or made music or just understood the things that I like. The most of what I make is usually coming from what you decide which is like self analyze Asian and just like learning a lot about myself for sure through sound and I and I'll say for our listeners that you know I know. I say it was my favorite album last year but I think for me as as somebody who's from South America originally you know listeners. Now I'm from Brazil. There was a lot that I found in it but I wasn't the only person that thought this album was great. You know just to kind of real it off. It was a top ten album of the year. Pitchfork pretty much every list. We had it in our top albums at paced everybody So it's just. It's been a great parade around the sun for this last year. Congratulations man thanks. Yeah you had a massive tour. What have you been doing since that tour resting sleeping a lot? Yeah I think there's like There's always like I don't think people know how. Long I've been touring touring for like fifteen years. You know turn forty this year. And there's like so many things and I think there was like a combination of like a lot of moments and like I think this record was definitely like a combination of a lot of the work that I had been doing with allow NATO previous and around. That wasn't related and we played. I think over one hundred shows but I think people forget like you like oh. I played one hundred shows like it's great because they get to these shows another hundred travel days you know and even even for this show tonight. You got here last night. You know what I mean. You're settlement forbidden San Francisco. You got load in this afternoon and you're doing this with us here for an hour just yet. So so I've taken these past few months to recuperate and sleep pretty deeply in just own kind of just open up like the band with of reading and calming down and stopped using like on a day to day. I was able to work with some people who were helping like do like social media stuff so I stopped doing that like on a day to day. And so that that's really helpful as well. I I recommend that to everyone. Yeah that's been part of like a huge part of just like this. The these moments of like Recuperating absorbing everything that's happened and I think I think it's important for someone who anyone who's making anything like any kind of work Any artist writing or visual or or sounder. Music like you just need more time to absorb all the things that have happened like I think it's almost impossible to like feel fuel everything and understand everything by just you know by not stopping you have to stop and just takes more

It's not every single John we you literally. It was big in Delaware that instead slander. That's slur was big in Delaware. The nineteen fifty. It was a pre talkie. That's got to the president just for the Retro Quality. Just just to take us back in time Lille and I are alone in the studio today. Stephanie has jury duty so it's just only al to celebrate. Celebrate the upcoming hog known to the gentiles. Valentine's Day is revelatory. Yeah that's right Ed. We will be speaking with some people who know something about Love Seduce today. They are among others. We're going to have the cast members of the web series soon by you about dating in the modern Orthodox world how carp when our favorite guests from the apology episode came to our live in Cincinnati to tell us a very very special story. And then if you like hearing US whisper sweet nothings into your ear. Buds wait until Oh you hear the lovely singing voices in our interview with cantorial student. Jacob Sandler yes he gets US singing. We really do put you in the Mood for love. This is love is in the air in twenty twenty s as the corona virus. But Hey you win some you lose so the the updates on our lives. Stephanie is currently only doing civic duty during jury duty somewhere in the five boroughs Stephanie was in Scotch Plains New Jersey having a great event there a few days ago Maybe we'll we'll get the update next week. Leo You're in the motherland right. I was in beautiful Israel. Why for my grandmother's one year as a memorial service? Yeah Had a chance to sit and study some Tomlin with my Gerke Hassett cousins. I dearly love and again you know. We're often kind of like you know funny about these matters here but every now and then I really do get the urge to be sincere when I sit with people who you would think we have absolutely nothing uncommon. But then you realize we are truly literally and metaphorically speaking family and when we get together that love that connection is completely puttable we have spent very a little time talking about the fact that you're related to Garros So how did these are first cousins of yourself. I Costa who went. Who Went Garrard in your family? My Grandmother's sisters Shula Married Girl Haas. Okay this is a particular sect of Hasidim. What is there? What's the What their vibe? Like what what makes Gerhardt's put it like this cafe after the memorial service writing grandmother. Someone was talking about a person who's become about Shuba who's found religion later in life and became a gir- haas acid and one of my cousins who is Haas it said really no one becomes Bolshevik becomes a hostage and I asked why not and my cousin said well. Because it's it's perfectly fine to be like a really religious Jew and not go all the way to where we are. Why would you ever do the house? We have no choice right. Mind way you ever come here. It's so interesting I don't have any Cassini blackadder's any Haredi in my family I have modern orthodox cousins in Israel whose parents my mother's first cousin hasn't her husband actually were leaders of the conservative movement in Israel but then there's not much of a conservative movement in Israel so if you grow up kind of conservative conservative acts like observant conservative but if you SORTA got a pick or are you going secular going modern Orthodox and they're you know they're orthodox but I don't know of anyone who's like got the hat and the beard. It's a great a crying. Shame you have Hasidic material written all over your basically and this is the thing that I I kind of realized this week. 'cause we were hanging we were talking and at some point. The conversation vacation got kind of really elevated. And then I thought you know moved to dial like three clicks to the right and we're talking about Cherry Garcia Right in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy right eating shrimps and the bus and the way to Monterrey. That's kind of the VIBE. Yeah really the essence of not just observing the strict strict interpretation of the law but really trying to find this motionless spiritual connect mystical court to it would love to. I WanNa hang with your gear custom in cousins or Greg. I had a slightly different experience but in its way no less mystical by the way while you're talking about Jerry Garcia on the bus. Were you on the conference call when I when we were all doing like a pre show Oh crap and Rebecca. My thirteen year old was in the car and she was saying Dad. Can you explain the the grateful dead to me which is a really deep question because you know I could say I mean. I think we'd been listening to uncle. John's John's Bander Casey Jones. Or something you've come on. Come on the playlist in the car and I could say well it's a it's a group from about nineteen sixty seven to nineteen. Ninety give is playing the debt side. But I could give you the Brownie right and you'll eat it thirty five minutes you'll understand everything about this man. I mean I. It's really hard to say because it's so much more than a band to six never made sense to me before I try them on. Meet cliche thing to say. One is a grateful dead. The second is tennis and attended attended. I'm like wait until you understand. 'em This is a great game. I just have to move my eleven right. I'm so into this now. I add my own mystical experience in Wia missing in Pennsylvania and a bunch of people came like they'd set up fifty chairs. Forty five of the chairs were were filled with super curious. Interesting people of all ages a young rabbi from Lebanon Pennsylvania brought his twenties and thirties. Group is like young singles of which there were five or six and they were super into it and they listen to the show and they wanted copies the book and it was magical. The Jewish Cultural Committee organizes their author series was three people. None of whom was is Jewish. Okay one of them was Nancy Russo. WHO's married to to Paul something? Jewish and Nancy is is Italian Catholic by upbringing. The main woman the director of cultural life for the Jewish nation is Amanda Hornberger. Whose husband is like something German Lutheran? She herself grew up. Congregational est she's on the vestry of her united the Church of Christ Congregational Church. I've always said that the congregation great out and there was a local librarian named John who grew up in Baltimore where he did sixteen years of Catholic school and then went off to college college. I mean literally none of these people even guys. Every time we meet a gentle on our show it turns out there a quarter Jewish. These people like zero Jew in them and yet they are keeping the Jewish heart beating y missing Pennsylvania. They were interested they were curious they're booking good authors. They're running great programs. The people they bring in Inter asking smart questions Jews by choice we had a convert. who showed up a Sherry came and said thank you for your your help on my journey? The podcast has been meaningful to me. gentile L. spouses of Jews. Why a missing? Pennsylvania was among the greatest afternoons of my life is how it ought to be how it ought to be. Whatever New York like fucking fucking A.? Y. A. Missing Pennsylvania it there. Are Jews starve reading. The News starts reading this and I want to see even today do an event at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. And you'll get fifty fifty three people and I go to why missing and get forty and in town. That's probably like twelve thousand people get numbers you get. People are truly engaged truly engaged and so grateful full end their listeners and the ones who aren't listeners could become listeners I it was it was magical. Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.

My Story: How I Became a Hippy-Dippy-Trippy Numerologist

"How did I discover my numbers and this weird Wacky hippy dippy trippy mark numerology so I think the first place to start in my childhood and the reason I think this is really important is because with my clients this is is a huge huge epiphany you know when we look back on our lives we see these themes assume that we were a particular way we had particular traits and gifts and a unique flavor of match check but we didn't see that when we were kid we didn't really acknowledge it when we were teenagers we didn't value it in our early twenty s we were too busy trying to be like other people or are magic just seemed so ordinary because we were born with it so my hope is by sharing with you my early story you'll also start to ponder what those themes were in your upper did your interests your preferences what set you apart I was a weird kid I was the kid at eight years old asking okay if God exists then who created God and then the guy that created God who created him was asking about the meaning of life and why we're here and why are there murderer's is there evil I think I asked these questions because I was lucky enough to grow up in a very spiritually progressive household both of my parents were hippies gone responsible my dad you know before my sister and I were born he lived on he Ashbury he lived next to Jerry Garcia my mom went to woodstock right but they wanted us to also have a d foundation they wanted us to be exposed to different beliefs as well my mom was raised Irish Catholic and so she sent my sister night to Catholic school for nine years nine years of plaid skirts and stations of the cross I'm so grateful all for every single moment because that was the start of my quest I was there for reason I was searching for myself searching for where I came from searching for my creator as early as I could remember when I learned God listens to our prayers that night I was so excited I went to my bedside on my knees and dramatically prayed as loud as I could so everyone in the house could hear asking God to speak to me and there is silence later on my dad's sent my sister and I to Buddhist monastery for summer school and it was the same story there I sat in these big beautiful temples lined with Golden Buddhas and we were taught to me detail listened to the songs and smell the wafts of knock CIAMPA and approach that silence and I was waiting for silence to say something anything but nothing so at a certain point okay I decided listen Maybe I'll find myself and find where I came from if I become an astronaut and I touch the stars and the reason I thought this was because the old only time as a child that I felt that feeling of significance that feeling that there was something bigger than me was when the son would Ed and the stars would pop out from the sky so back then to become an astronaut you had to become a fighter pilot so I decided I'm going to become a fighter pilot I think I was thirteen past ground school will I started to log in hours up in the sky in a Sitar Brea in acrobatic airplane and it was fun but something wasn't seat so when it came time to go to college the only thing that made sense to me at the time was to major in religious studies and philosophy because I thought listen maybe maybe the creator maybe crater authored many books maybe he left clues about me about the universe woven NBC's stage plays of tradition and belief. I didn't stay there long though I was searching for my home a cradle my creator in the hope that I would somehow find a friend a companion instead I fell in love I dropped out of college and started a family

"New. And I remember you thought it was the French vocalist. Anthony newley. I did I was embarrassed when I found out the real answer. So this time around I'm not gonna do it yet. We're going to do it a little later, but I'm gonna play a baffling track for you that is not characteristic of this artist. And I'm not gonna tell you anything about the artists. I'm just going to tell you one thing about the mystery artists you're gonna have to wait until you hear the track. But the mystery artists is not an artist that in the past. I've ever expressed any interest in Jerry Garcia. What did you like? Did you see the CDs? I brought no no I just had a sort of. I think that flash kind of. That's being struck by lightning my brain. How'd you get it? From one hint. Well, it was a dead giveaway. Well that was worth the climb. Wasn't it? And that was the joke that I was referring to earlier that had been so difficult for we did a pretty good job. I you did. Well, we're just about at the break. And so I think when we do part to later we can talk about the simulcasts that we're going to be doing on a radio station. And also, I I'd like to leave it at this. I do hope we're not mopped at Mckee Marsh because a feather brained it has happened last year it did. And it's going to be even worse this year. Yeah. I remember what happened last year where three young ladies recognize me. Yes, they did. And I was quite a hit. You certainly were. They were gathered around you, you were charming. I'm always standing off to the side. But Irving, I will say one by the power of celebrity and this year Bill your picture is in feathered brain. Yes, your photo is in feather brain my new book from university of Michigan press. And so I think we are both endanger of being mobbed like an owl by crows at. A nest are there other photos in the book? There are Bill. There is a photo for every chapter of the book, and then a couple leftover where do they go? They just fall out open the book carefully. So we'll be back after we have died some raindrops in our yearly podcasts from McGee Marsh, and we are headed there. Now, let you know how it is. You're listening to Pat life radio. This is what were you thinking with Bob tired and Bill home the radar says that we might actually get some burden in today. Okay. Let's go. Let's start her up, and let's head out.

"In his latest book fair the well, the final chapter of the grateful dead's long strange trip. He's focused on the band's turbulent ugly. Feuds and awkward truce following the death of their reluctant leader Jerry Garcia back in August of nineteen ninety-five. Fairly. Well, the final chapter of the grateful dead's long strange trip focuses on the post Jerry period of an acid banned. The turned rather acidic. That's the first two hours the last two hours. Well, it's Friday that means open lines. But before we get to all of that. Another thing we do Fridays on coast to coast is a visit from coasts news, editor Tim banal. He covers the paranormal beat us. And he writes, most of the original articles you see on the coast website every Friday, he joins us at the start of our radio program with a roundup of some of the most fascinating stories from the last week, Tim. How are you my friend? I'm doing great. Thanks for thanks for having me on here tonight. Right at the start of the show. It's great, Richard. I really appreciate my pleasure. There are two occupations that I've I find to be among the greatest coast listeners their faithful, and they also provide great stories one long haul truckers and the other are security guards. And you have a great story from a security guard at a nursing home with some closed circuit video to backup. This amazing story. Tell me about it. Yeah. Yeah. I, you know, as you can imagine I see all kinds of videos all the time doing this job. And this one really stood out is unique among the many that I see because this worker at the nursing home. He was working overnight shift and he saw ghost. And then he told his friends as family the next day. Like, you're not gonna believe this. I saw goes last night at work. Nobody believed him which I'm sure happens to so many people who have these experiences, and in this case, it was sort of this awesome. Awesome moment of vindication because he went back to work and check the security system. And there is video. What we have up at the coast to coast website in the number one slot in the carousel of the encounter, and you can see him sitting at the at the reception desk at the front of the nursing home. And this weird sort of nebulous cloud thing floats across his field of vision. And then he gets up and steps back, and he's he's visually visibly shaken up by what he's seen barring a hoax, of course, you can never rule out a hoax, barring a host. This is some of the most remarkable footage. I've seen a while. Because simply because it's so natural looking, you know, this is exactly how you would expect it to play out of so many saw goes, right? Well, thank heavens for that closed, circuit security video. Now, I gotta tell you my neighborhood up in Thornhill Jewish north of Toronto is raccoon heaven and guaranteed when I drive home tomorrow morning or around five forty I will see at least at least two maybe three raccoons, maybe one. Waiting to greet me? And my driveway's I pull in but this guy in upstate New York. They're calling him the pied piper of raccoons. This is unbelievable. Tell me about this guy. Well, we don't you much about him per se right now, I'm sure as this video gets more viral. He'll start making appearances something his name is Eddie Lawrence. And all we really know is that he was hanging around. He does frequently. I guess at the Brasher state forest in upstate New York. And he plays a native American song on his flute. And I think the videos about two minutes long. So you just see the raccoons they just come out of the out of the forest and and start flocking around him. I gotta give him credit because we have raccoons near my house as well. And I'm frightened of them. I wouldn't want to be that close to so many raccoons. But somehow, I love to know what you know, the how that happens, but they, you know, they're not eating or anything. They're just gather round this guy while he plays the flute. It's really it's riveting, and and sort of wondrous, and you know, the kind of fun story we need after crazy week. Like, you got that. Right. Well, Tim, thank you so much, and we can read all of your terrific stories up at the coast to coast, AM dot com website in the highlights carousel and in the in the news section, Tim. Thank you. Thank you very much. All right. The post Jerry grateful Grateful Dead with former San Francisco Chronicle music critic Joel Salvin when we come back come on in where he traveler hang your cloak and a pay grab a stool come gather around the fire. There are stories to be told and you are among friends. This is coast to coast AM. I'm Richard Sarah sitting in for George Noory. Why don't you? Stay awhile..

"Welcome back to coast to coast. Let me share a Jerry Garcia quote with you. What we're thinking about is a peaceful planet. We're not thinking about anything else. We're not thinking about any kind of power. We're not thinking about any kind of struggles. We're not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. That's not what we want. Nobody wants to get hurt. Nobody wants to hurt anybody. We'd all like to be able to live an uncluttered life a simple life, a good life and think about moving the whole human race ahead. A stepper a step or a few steps kind of ironic. Given what happened to the members? The core group of the Grateful Dead after the death of Jerry Garcia in August of nineteen ninety-five. Joel Selvyn dives deep into the Machiavellian power struggle within the Grateful Dead after their philosophical leader Jerry Garcia died. Suddenly Nagas of nineteen ninety-five Joel is an award winning journalist who's covered pop music. For the San Francisco Chronicle since nineteen seventy he's the author of the bestselling summer of love and co author with Sammy Hagar of the number one New York Times bestseller red. He's written twelve other books about pop music, including his latest fare, the well, the final chapter of the grateful dead's long strange trip. In fact, Joel's co author is Pamela Turley, Joel welcome back to coast to coast. How are you? Excellent. So good to be back. It's great speaking with you again, you were kind enough to speak with me for an episode of my podcast, the rock and roll twilight zone on alternate. And I learned so much from talking to you. And and. I'm not blowing smoke here. I mean, you truly are one of the deans of in terms of chronicling rock and roll. You were there, you know, from the early days. He I think you attended your first Grateful Dead concert. Like at the beginning, nineteen sixty six or something wasn't it. That's true. April nineteen sixty six. Just gotten back from Los Angeles. They on a teen dance Bill with a group from Sacramento called the union Jackson. It was so early in the psychedelic scene was it was like a moment in Berkeley, all the way across the bridge from San Francisco, and they were trying this out. And I remember that they had a kind of like. Like a sort of lean to light show and they'd borrowed a opaque projector. You remember those old opaque projectors? You teacher used to books in. Oh, yes. Yes. They had a bowl of colored jello under the Paik jello. And that was the light show. That was the late show. Yeah. I vaguely remember the banned from that night. But you know, at that point in San Francisco, you couldn't go to rock shows without running into the Grateful Dead there on every Bill they would ever your concert. They were just around. They were the home team would now we're the Mary prankster's around was that still part of the Kool aid acid test or was or was LSD had been banned in California by that time. So the Kool aid acid test the the there in late sixty five most of them took place down the south bay. They had one up in Muir beach up in Marin county, which is why they met als Lee, and they had a couple in San Francisco, and then they held acid the trips festival in January of sixty six and that sort of a starting point for the whole San Francisco seen the January Bill Graham started producing concerts with Jefferson airplane is the more and quicksilver messenger service and big brother and the holding company started playing in public. So it rolled out from there. The dead became the dead in about December of sixty five. They were the warlocks before that they were just part and parcel of the of the whole deal. They were they were every day event on the San Francisco Roxy. I don't wanna dwell on the past. Because this this book is is post nineteen ninety-five. It's what happened to the grateful dead's core the four after the death of Jerry Garcia. But I gotta ask you because you mentioned Housley Stanley the third I believe the grandson of Kentucky Senator. I mean this guy wanted to you know, he had aspirations of becoming a ballerina, and he was a pilot, and he will eat did everything. Yeah. Would there have been the Grateful Dead without Housley Stanley? So I'm so glad you mentioned that he's a huge factor in the design of the Grateful Dead in the in the conceptualization in the actual ization Louis whose best known, of course, for being the first private party to synthesize LSD. He really is. Also, a revolutionary a acoustic version, you know, sound engineer. He was the first person to create monitors the wall of sound. Well, the wall was later. But I mean monitors man, you know, so you can hear yourself sing little those little speakers that they turn around and face the band, right? Right. And he's also the first guy to mix a concert in stereo. I didn't know that. Yeah. Yeah. No. I honestly was was it was was madcap genius, amazing guy and. Ordinary personality. And of course, the LSD empire made a lot of dough. So he was he funded an awful lot of the grateful dead's early enterprises who he was a benefactor right right now. I mean, you you've insisted all along despite you know, I don't know how many concerts of the dead you've attended. But you were there and sixty six but you say you're not a dead head explain. Yeah. Well, you know, I'm not really a dead head. I remember those guys they showed up on the public transportation system at the Fillmore shows, and they danced over the side with their hands over their heads and everything and and anytime the dead was on the Bill. There was a contingent of those people and. It's a copy call the behavior. I never been to to dead shows row of never twirled in the hallway, I've I've certainly taken LSD and and gone to dead concert. But I just never followed them that way. But on the other hand is the pop music reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, I saw the Grateful Dead is a big time story, and and I wanted to make sure they're adequately covered in the paper. So, you know, pretty much saw their major local concerts, and and covered all the large events in their in their career from the nineteen seventy on. Had had Jerry Garcia not passed in nineteen ninety-five. Would they have just kept going? Well, they had a tour book that September that sixty people working for them and everybody was living the good life and very accustomed to it. There were a few outlier voices in the early nineties going. Hey, you know, the sixty seventy concerts a year is pretty hard on Garcia. Are you sure you want to keep pushing him this hard, but nobody paid any attention to that. And yeah, he was his health was in very bad shape alter the nineties. He almost died in the eighties. Hey, it was in a coma for a number of days and came out of a doozy year before he was really back on his feet. And he never really recovered. Went back on drugs is is wait blew up. He was a mess. And I don't think he was happy. I think he's. It was. So. Closed in from the band. I I think being the leader of the Grateful Dead become a real burden to him when he was getting off that train in at night. He was only one way to leave me he had become the reluctant leader of what had grown into this global empire. I mean how much were they grossing concerts record sales merchandise in particular annually. It was phenomenal. The numbers were just off the charts. You know, the fifty million in ticket sales another thirty million in t shirts sales. Three hundred million over the course of several years. I mean, they're they're the top grossing rock band for a number of years in a row in the early nineties airplanes consecutive dates stadiums. Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones territory, and yet they didn't get played on the radio. That's true. They really didn't. I mean, they had that little MTV moment with I will survive, but touch of grey. No, they did the Denver part of the radio there. They existed in a in different universities in other rock dance. And and the people that went to their shows really were devoted to the Grateful Dead. They went to the same people that showed up at the J show the next week. That must have been a heavy burden on on Garcia responsible for what maybe a maybe a hundred families from the from the core group of musicians right down to the guy who sold burritos at concerts. I mean, hundreds of people reliant upon him. Well, and also there have been so many long thin hard years where they didn't make any dough. And everybody was was was scrapping to to put food on the table. Really? I remember in nineteen seventy five they've been on the road for ten years, and they took a year off and the drummer Bill placeman wanted to buy a condo. You know have a place to live, and he couldn't raise the five thousand dollars. They needed for down payment. How is that possible? After after American Beauty, and and all of these great albums about money, and they spend it like, you know, willfully on on improving their acoustics on the wall of sound that you mentioned on hiring people one point in the seventies. They had three hundred people working for them. They had their own travel agency they had their own car rental company. They just soaked it up and spread it out sin. And and they were they they stay true to that code. You know, I mean, they they they saw money as a tool to expand their influence, and and and and make their seen groove here. It's interesting. I mentioned that that quote of Jerry Garcia off the top and in his kind of frenetic and. I mean, I don't want to I want to go too far into this analogy because I I mean, but I think of when Garcia died, and you had these four tempestuous characters it was almost like Tito in Yugoslavia. He. Not that not that Garcia was Tito, I mean, he was a strong armed man, but Garcia with zen like, you know, non-confrontational he held them together. But with in his absence. They just went at each other hammering tongs didn't they they did not have any grounds for a relationship between the four of them. They all each and every one of them thought that they were Jerry Garcia's best friend. But they didn't think that about each other. And then when Jerry was taken out of the equation. It's like the hub went away. And the spokes were just at loose ends. How does how do people though performed together live together travel in a bus together in hotels who the lean times and not develop a close brotherly bond. You know, the fans thinking about this golden ring of love around the band. How is that not though, they those those guys are all bonded? There's no question about that. But and and Garcia. I remember him telling me that one of the things that really serve to bond them. And he used that word was all the LSD trips. They took together as young men, so they were bonded. But it was a question of relationship, right and relational they all related to each other through Jerry. And they didn't have like the the the parallel alliances that that you would need to survive. The loss of the centrifuge it harder their seen. So when he when he died suddenly in August of nineteen ninety-five. I mean, obviously they were shocked, but he couldn't have been that big of a surprise. But how did it impact each individually? Let's start with Bob weir. Well, first of all, I got it. Correct. You on that it actually did come as a big surprise to those guys, but the Grateful Dead and lived in denial about health and welfare issues for a long time member, the they they had like the number of keyboard players that were deceased and the last one Brent Midland. I remember he died on like a Tuesday or Wednesday. And and they had to be like reminded that they shouldn't go through with the gigs that weekend. Oh, dear. They went through probably not a good idea. But Jerry was so much the sun shined down on all these people, so Bobby we're he was on a tour with a solo band called rat dog was one of the very early gigs by this band and. The they got the news in the morning, and he wasn't played the gig that night and then flew back to San Francisco to participate in the funeral and the immemorial a concert, but left is banned in a hotel on the east coast. And as soon as he was done with that memorial concert on Sunday, flew back to the east coast and was back on tour was rat. Dr. I think Bobby was just absolutely blown out and he.

Just gotten back from Los Angeles. They were on a teen dance Bill with a group from Sacramento called the union Jackson. It was so early in the psychedelic. Seen. It was it was like a moment in Berkeley, all the way across the bridge from San Francisco, and they were trying this out. And I remember that they had a kind of black. Of sort of lean to light show and they'd borrowed a Otake projector. Remember those old opaque projectors your teacher used to put books in. Oh, yes. Yes. They had a bowl of color jello under the opaque jello. And that was the light show. That was the late show. Yeah. Oh, wow. I vaguely remember the banned from that night. But you know, at that point in San Francisco, you couldn't go to rock shows without running into the Grateful Dead there on every Bill they would ever your concert. They were just around. They were the home team would now we're the Mary prankster's around was that still part of the Kool aid acid test or was or was LSD had been banned in California by that time. So the Kool aid acid tests, the the there in late sixty five most of them took place down in the south bay. They had one up in Muir beach up in Marin county, which is why they met als Lee, and they had a couple in San Francisco, and then they held the acid the trips festival in January of sixty six and that sort of a starting point for the whole San Francisco seen the January Bill Graham started producing concerts with Jefferson airplane is the Fillmore and quicksilver messenger service and big brother and the holding company started playing in public. So it rolled out from there. The dead became the dead in about December of sixty five. They were the warlocks before that, and they were just part and parcel of the of the whole deal. They were they were in everyday event on the San Francisco Roxy. I don't wanna dwell on the past because this book is is post nineteen ninety-five. It's what happened to the grateful dead's core the four after the death of Jerry Garcia. But I gotta ask you because you mentioned Ashleigh Stanley the third I believe the grandson of Kentucky Senator. I mean this guy wanted you know, he had aspirations of becoming a ballerina, and he was a pilot, and he will eat did everything quoted Russian. Yeah. Would there have been the Grateful Dead without Housley Stanley? So I'm so glad you mentioned that he's a huge factor in the design of the Grateful Dead in the in the conceptualization in the actual ization Lii whose best known, of course, for being the first private party to synthesize. LSD? He really is. Also, a revolutionary acoustic sound engineer. He was the first person to create monitors the wall of sound while the wall sound was later. But does it. I mean monitors man, you know, so you can hear yourself sing those little speakers that they turn around and face the band, right, right? And he's also the first guy to mix a concert in stereo. I didn't know that. Yeah. Yeah. No, obviously was was was was madcap genius, amazing guy and extraordinary personality. And of course, LSD empire made a lot of dough. So he was he funded an awful lot of the grateful dead's early enterprises. He was a benefactor right right now. I mean, you you've insisted all along despite you know, I don't know how many concerts of the dead you've attended. But you were there in sixty six, but you say, you're not a dead. Explain. Yeah. Well, you know, I'm not really a dead head. I remember those guys they showed up on on the public transportation system at the Fillmore shows, and they danced over the side with their hands over their heads and everything and and anytime the dead was on the Bill. There was a contingent of those people, and it's it's an pulpy behavior. I never been to to dead shows in a row. Oh of never twirled in the hallway, I've I've certainly taken LSD and and gone dead concert. But I just never follow them that way. But on the other hand is the pop music reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, I saw the Grateful Dead is a big time story, and and I wanted to make sure they're adequately covered in the paper. So, you know, pretty much saw their major local concerts, and and covered all the large events in their in their career from the nineteen seventy on had had Jerry Garcia not passed in nineteen ninety-five. Would they have just kept going? Well, they had a tour book that September that sixty people working for them and everybody was living the good life and very accustomed to it. There was a few outlier voices in the early nineties going. Hey, you know, the sixty seventy concerts a year is pretty hard on. Garcia. Are you? Sure, you want to keep pushing him this hard, but nobody paid any attention to that. And. Yeah. He was his health was in very bad shape. All through the nineties almost died in eighty eight. It was in a coma for a number of days and came out of a doozy year before he was really back on his feet. And he never really recovered. Went back on drugs is is wait blew up. He was a mess. And I don't think he was happy. I think he's was. So closed in from the band. I I think the being the leader of the Grateful Dead become a real burden to him. But when he was getting off that train in at night. He was only one way to leave me he had become the the reluctant leader of what had grown into this global empire. I mean how much were they grossing concerts record sales merchandise in particular annually. It was phenomenal. The numbers were just off the charts. You know, the fifty million in ticket sales another thirty million in t shirts sales. Three hundred million over the course of several years. I mean, they were the top grossing rock band for a number of years in a row in the early nineties airplanes consecutive dates at stadiums. Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones territory, and yet they didn't get played on the radio. That's true. They really didn't. I mean, they had that little MTV moment with I will survive, but touch a grey. No, they did Deborah never part of the radio there. They they existed in different universities in other rock dancing, and the people that want to their shows really were devoted to the Grateful Dead. They went to same people that showed up at the J guile show the next week. That must've been a heavy burden on Garcia responsible for what maybe maybe a hundred families from the from the core group of musicians right down to the guy who sold burritos at their concerts. I mean, hundreds of people reliant upon him. Well, also there have been so many long thin hard years where they didn't make any dough. And everybody was was was scrapping to to put food on the table. Really? I remember in nineteen seventy five they've been on the road for ten years, and they took a year off and the drummer Bill Christman wanted to buy a condo. You know have a place to live, and he couldn't raise the five thousand dollars. He needed for down payment. How is that possible? After after American Beauty and all of these great albums about money. And they they spend it like. Like, you know, willfully on on improving their acoustics on the wall of sound that you mentioned on hiring one point they in the seventy s they had three hundred people working for them. They had their own travel agency they had their own car rental company. They just soaked it up and spread it out thin. And and they were they they stayed true to that code. You know, what I mean, they they saw money as a tool to expand their influence in the and and and make their seen groove here. It's interesting. You mentioned that quote of Jerry Garcia off the top. And in his kind of ironic, and I don't want to I don't wanna go too far into this analogy because I mean, but I think of when Garcia died, and you had these four tempestuous characters it was almost like, Tito and Yugoslavia. Not that not that Garcia was Tito, I mean, he was a strong armed man, but Garcia with zen like, you know, non-confrontational he held them together. But within his absence, they just went at each other hammering tongs didn't they they did not have any grounds for relationship between the four of them. They all each and every one of them thought that they were Jerry Garcia's best friend, but they didn't think that about each other. And then when Jerry was taken out of the equation. It's like the hub went away. And the spokes were just at loose sense. How does how do people though performed together live together travel in a bus together in hotels who the lean times and not develop a close brotherly bond. You know, the fans thinking about this golden ring of love around the band. How does that not though, they those those guys are all bonded? There's no question about that. But and and Garcia. I remember him telling me that one of the things that really serve to bond them. And he used that word was all the LSD trips. They took together as young men. So they were bonded. But it was the question of relationship, right and relational they all related to each other through Jerry. And they didn't have like the the the parallel alliances that that you would need to survive the loss of the centrifuges harder they're seen. So when he when he died suddenly in in August of nineteen ninety-five, obviously they were shocked, but he couldn't have been that big of a surprise. But how did it impact each individually? Let's start with Bob weir. Well, first of all got it. Correct. You on that it actually did come as a big surprise to those guys..
