A Brief History of Staphylococcus Aureus

"Years ago. I acquired an infection in my left eye socket caused by the bacteria. Staphylococcus Aureus my vision clouded and then. My eye socket swelled shut and I ended up hospitalized for over a week how I experienced the same infection anytime in history before nineteen forty. I would've likely lost. Not just my I but my life then again I wouldn't have ever lived to acquire orbital so you lights because I would have died of the staph infections I had in childhood. Stella Aureus is not a normal part of the human microbiome but many people perhaps around a third are like me. Nonetheless hosts two colonies of it on our skin or in our nasal passages or in our digestive systems. These colonies are usually harmless but while anyone can get sick with staff those of us who live omitted. Every day are more likely to suffer infections. When I was in the hospital the infectious disease. Doctors made me feel very special. One told me you are colonized by some fascinating Lee. Aggressive Staff He told me I wouldn't believe the petri dishes if I saw them and went on to call my continued existence. A real testament to modern medicine. Which I suppose it is for. People like myself colonized by fascinating. The aggressive bacteria there can be no harkening back wistfully to pass Golden Ages. Because in all those pasts I would be dead in. Nineteen forty one. Boston city hospital reported in eighty two percent fatality rate. For staph infections. I remember as a child hearing phrases like only the strong survive and survival of the fittest and feeling terrified by them. Because I knew I was not fit or strong. I didn't yet know that when humanity protects the frail among us and works to ensure their survival the human project as a whole get stronger failing to understand that has held our species back for Millennia and in fact still does because staff often infects open wounds. It has been especially deadly during war near the beginning of world. War One. The English poet Rupert Brooke Famously wrote if I should die. Think only this of me that there's some corner of a foreign field that is forever. England Brookwood indeed die in the war in the winter of nineteen fifteen but not in some corner of a foreign field but instead on a hospital ship of a bacterial infection by then there were of course. Thousands of doctors treating the war's wounded and ill among them was a seventy one year old. Scottish surgeon Alexander Ogden who decades earlier had discovered and named Staphylococcus Ogden who sported a magnificent moustache throughout his adult. Life was a huge fan of Joseph. Lister WHO's observations about post surgical infection led to the use of carbolic acid and other sterilization techniques these dramatically increased surgical survival rates. In fact after visiting lister and learning from Him Ogden returned to his hospital in Aberdeen and tore down the sign above the operating room that read prepare to meet the God. No would surgery. Be a desperate last ditch effort. It could be safe and clean and survivable. Ogden was so obsessed with listers carbolic acid spray that his students wrote a poem about it. The spray the spray the antiseptic spray. A would shower it morning night and day for every sort of scratch where others would attach a sticking plaster patch. He gave the spray. It's all right but it's no Rupert Brooke. At any rate Ogden had good reason to give the spray. His first wife Mary. Jane had died after childbirth a few years earlier at the age of twenty five. There's no record her cause death but most maternal deaths at the time were caused by postpartum infection often due to staphylococcus aureus and dogs had hundreds of his patients die of post surgical infection so no wonder he was obsessed with antiseptic protocols. Still he wanted to understand not just how to prevent infection but also what precisely was causing it by the late. Eighteen seventies many discoveries were being made by surgeons and researchers about various bacteria and their role in infection but staphylococcus was not identified until Austin lanced a pus filled abscessed leg wound belonging to one James Davidson. Under the microscope. Davidson's abscess was brimming with life. Ogden wrote my delight may be conceived when there were revealed to me beautiful tangles tufts and chains of round organisms in great numbers. Ogden named these tufts and chains staphylococcus from the Greek word for bunches of grapes and they do often look like grape bunches plump and just a little bit oblong and also quite yellowish green. A few years later a German scientist noted that there were in fact several species of staphylococcus and named the one Ogden had found Staphylococcus Aureus or the golden staff but Ogden wasn't content with just seeing the bacteria. Obviously he wrote the first step to be taken was to make sure the organisms found. In Mr Davidson's pus were not there by chance. So he set up a laboratory in the shed behind his house and began trying to grow colonies of staff eventually succeeding by growing them. In the medium of a chicken egg he then injected the bacteria into guinea pigs and wild mice which became violently ill. Ogden also noted that staphylococcus seemed to be quote harmless on the surface despite being quote so deleterious when injected I have also observed this in so far as I am not much bothered by having my skin colonized by Staphylococcus Aureus but find it. Dilatot serious indeed when it starts replicating inside my eye socket. James Davidson by the way went on to live another forty years after his staph infection. Thanks to a thorough deriding and Ogden's liberal use of the spray the spray the antiseptic spray but staphylococcus aureus remained an exceptionally dangerous infection until another Scottish scientist Alexander. Fleming discovered penicillin by accident. Actually one Monday morning in nineteen twenty eight Fleming notice that one of his cultures of Staphylococcus aureus had been contaminated by a fungus penicillin them which seemed to have killed all the STAPH BACTERIA. He remarked allowed. That's funny Fleming. Then used what? He called his mould juice. I wish I were making that up to treat. Couple patients including during his assistance. Sinus infection but mass production of the antibiotic substance secreted by. Penicillin proved very challenging. It wasn't until the late nineteen thirties. That a group of scientists at Oxford began testing their penicillin stocks. I on mice and then in nineteen forty one on a human subject. A policeman named Albert Alexander who'd been cut by shrapnel during a German bombing raid and who was dying of bacterial infections in his case both staphylococcus aureus and streptococcus. The penicillin caused a dramatic improvement in Alexander's condition but the researchers didn't have enough of the drug to save him. The infections returned and Alexander died in April of nineteen forty one. His seven-year-old daughter Sheila ended up in a local orphanage. Scientists began to seek out more productive strains of the mold and eventually found one on a cantaloupe in a Peoria Illinois grocery store that strain eventually became even more productive after being exposed to x rays and ultraviolet radiation. But essentially all penicillin. In the world descends from that mold on that one cantaloupe in Peoria. That's not the astounding thing about the story though the astounding thing is that after scraping off the mold that became the world's supply of penicillin the scientists in question eight the rest of the cantaloupe

Dr. Aldon D. Morris Discuss History of Sociology Pertaining to Black America

"John Leo Hinton Junior and welcome to another edition up in black miracle on news leaks program Doctor Alden. Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white. Mississippi and established in one thousand nine hundred. Five small group led by Lester. Ward William Grand something to Franklin Jennings and Albion small at a meeting any of the American Economic Association. The American Sociological Association held his first meeting the following year in Providence Rhode Island the membership in in one thousand nine hundred sixty two at one hundred fifteen for the first several decades the activities of the society or sending on publishing a journal holding an annual annual meeting and performing various administrative functions. Such as record keeping sending out communications and so forth and forty nine the first executive executive officer was appointed on a part time basis and in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. The Association established permanent headquarters in Washington. DC since the organization was founded. There has only been three African American presidents PRYATTA. More selection. Dr Al and Moore's will be the one hundred twelfth president of the American Sociological Association. He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college. I'll southeast junior colleges. In the end he spoke to us and And and I was like wow man. This is one of the most powerful individualism was ever heard so I remain active on movements but also You know Had never no one in my immediate family. That never gone to college so I didn't have any plans to go to college and And then the Vietnam war start raging and and I was working in Spiegel's warehouse and And I knew I didn't want to go to Vietnam and I ended up going to a community. Unity College us. Because then you could get for with the ferment. Kept you out of the service for a little while so so I did that and that was. That was the very beginning. Some of my college experience I in fact With somewhat afraid to go to community college because you know Com being a first generation student. I thought that everybody was going to be so much smarter than me. And then I was GonNa say things get laughed at it and all of that but I I went on. There was still more appealing. Attractive to meet and go into Vietnam and so I went. I went to a community college and I started reading. Do Boards and Margaret Walker and David Walker Peel. And all that kind of

And so you so before you look for a particular app that only does one task is that you might want to look at. Okay. What is it the genre? That I'm working with them working with photos. Maybe the photo sites will make a photo book because you're right. Putting it into Microsoft. We're trying to form out those pages getting that done that's a complete nightmare. But the other thing that might be kind of fun for you to do is Andrew which you did with the gentleman on fiber where you created the animated book that that your kids really love. Yes. And we I sent them real pictures. They we communicated back and forth on fiber. They cry. I think it was in the end it was nine original. Illustrations based on photos, and I mean, I know the websites called five or, but it's still only ended up costing one hundred sixty dollars for someone to to take months to make those animations. And so so so the next time you have a task foot in front of you, Tom. Call us. Okay. Okay. Okay me. That's why we're here and or drop me a note through the website. And I know this sounds crazy.

"Let's go to Linda in Peoria, Illinois, Linda, thank you for your patience. I I appreciate that. Thank you for letting me say, my speech here, you're talking about responsibility for kids. I was thinking about my son when he was like ten years old him and another kid went to Davor woman's house and soak dollar windows, she came over just flipping out. So I asked him and he said he did do it. But he also named the other kids so intern. I told him to get a bucket and water and a sponge, and I made him go plane all her windows. Off the other kid, he hung over the fence and make fun of my son because he had to do it. But that's okay, he's an alcoholic, and my son is well respected. So there's the difference in teaching your kid. What I call about was Hillary Clinton. I listen to coast to coast should how crooked it is. And she's got billions of dollars in it. And they only give fifteen percent of it to charity the rest of it. They keep in there. And he was saying that it's just it's fake. The whole foundation is fake. Well, when it came time for her to run and Trump. When it came down to it. I knew I would never ever in a million years vote for her. So I voted for him. And since he's been in office. Day of done nothing. But everything in their power to put this man down in every step that he takes and they're even picking on his wife, and she's a beautiful woman. But they just don't quit. They don't let up. You know, and it's all because they're Republican and the Democrats didn't get in. And so they're sore losers. No, all right. Oh, by the way, before you go past that did, you know, Hillary Clinton by several different measures in polling people in America. She was the most popular woman in America for the last seventeen years up until last week. You know who knocked her off. Michelle obama. Answer me distant when they were in office. Nobody made fun of Michelle Obama when she was out in the garden in high heels at a skirt trying to teach kids how to make a garden. Look, here's the thing. I get probably why Hillary Clinton was looked at. Hello. My gosh. It's Hillary Clinton. You know, she's never had a real job other than politics even going from the rose law firm Ford, but what did Michelle Obama do other than write a book that now make sure the most popular woman in America? I'm not trying to be mean spirited. I'm just I'm just asking the question what Michelle Obama do? Well, wait a minute. She did put up with Brock for a while. But what did she do to to unseat Hillary Clinton as the most popular woman in America? I don't get that..

But in that spiritual sense, it's it's very very beautiful for as long as you've been doing this trapper. Is there a miracle story? That just has. Captivated you. There's one that happens every year that I am surprised that all Christians don't shout from the mountaintops. I don't get it. Sometimes we seem to kinda as you know, this is my face, and therefore this is my miracle. What's your miracle, and it, and it boggles my mind because there is a huge miracle. That happens on Orthodox Easter weekend at the tomb of Christ since the beginning of the church. I mean, this was first written about way back when the church was just beginning every year every year. In the tomb of Christ fire comes out of the stone. Jesus was laid upon the story. No, tell me it just it doesn't make any sense that you don't know the story. I mean, you know, what I mean? And the and I'm not criticizing you. I'm just saying as a church now, this is something Greek Orthodox this is part of their faith. And I've asked prese I'm Catholic I asked my why don't you guys talk about this? I asked a Methodist minister on my podcast. Why aren't you talking? Do. They know about it. Many don't. But but but again, why not if you have something this huge where every year the patriarch of the orthodox church goes into the tomb. He says prayers, you know, he's been patted down before he goes into make sure I'm literally patted down by his Rayleigh. Authorities to make it doesn't have anything to start a fire right tonight. They checked inside the tomb, and this has been happening every year clockwork like clockwork, and he goes in. And he says his prayers and each everyone kind of gets a different experience has got isn't. He's not. He's not limited. What he can do in there how he can bring the firebrand, but sometimes it's like miss than forms columns. The the patriarch is holding thirty three candles in each hand representing the age of Christ and the fi in the candles lit. He comes out. Now, he starts passing, you know, the candle to candle everyone's got candles in their hands. But the fire has a personality of its own. Not only are they passing at one to another. The flame starts shooting across the room in lighting candles. They shoot up the up to the lamps twenty thirty feet above and the church of the resurrection. I mean, the whole there are thousands of people in there, and or at least a thousand whatever the whatever they can hold, and there's thousands more outside and the whole place is a glow in no time from this fire that comes out of the out of the tomb, and and I I'm just dazzled with something this powerful. And this to me could you have a bigger sign of that the resurrection happened than this. And yet the entire Christian community, isn't jumping up and down. Every Orthodox Easter Sunday saying it happened, again, my mind, it boggles, my mind, who are we, you know, who.

"Fifty AM and ninety four one FM. Well, I think it's appropriate. As we go to the phones that we start with the the great state of Kentucky, of course, the home state of ours. Lee Stanley Steve is on the wildcard line as Steve you're on the line with Joel Selvyn. Good morning Richard wanting until I wanted to ask you research on one of the midwest largest marijuana networks of eighty and according to the newsletters or the Grateful Dead. They get involved in the four twenty movement ground early nineties, and I wonder what your thoughts were about that. And what time line that was because this group actually started the four twenty movement the mid eighties eighty six and the reason why they didn't say anything is. Because obviously they're involved in illegal activities. And I just wonder what your thoughts were on that. And how the Grateful Dead became the flow of the four twenty movement in the ninety says news to me, I'm not surprised the they had a lot of interest in in activist movements and their Phil. Phil Phil philanthropy span diverse sort of things like Phil lash was very. In modern classical composers who aren't very well supported by grants. And and and the Rex foundation the philanthropic arm so one of the biggest supporters of modern classical music for a number of years. And then then they bought the list of waiting and Olympic basketball team their uniforms. So about I'm not surprised to hear that they're backing legal marijuana that they were all enthusiastic endorsers of the product. No doubt. Steve. Thank you for that. Let's go to Greensboro, North Carolina. Roy welcome to coast to coast AM. Thank you Jolan, Richard. Okay. Brag about this to this day early seventies. I think seventy four after pig pen died they replaced him with NICKY Hopkins on keyboard? I saw them a dead at Duke University. Small venue house nuts about the whole west coast scene. Quicksilver hot tuna, and I loved Phil Lesch didn't really know NICKY Hopkins. Hello, phil. Lashes songs boxer rain Jack's Ron broken chain. They seem more unique and just complicated. Well, anyway during the concert NICKY Hopkins, maybe the greatest keyboard player of all time. I noticed. Oh, the only one knows. Among my friends that seemed like lash and Hopkins were just playing for them were playing the lead and everybody else just follow along and it was a four hour concert. And I wonder if there was was there any friction you talked about Celeste last house. I was there any friction with NICKY Hopkins coming in with the other members. And Phil lash kinda I gotta tell you. I don't I I don't think Nikki ever played with the dead. He was in Jerry's band for a while. It was Keith God show that replaced Iran. Mckernan the probably the guy you saw seventy four. Yeah. I'm member seeing Nikki Nikki Hopkins to it was the low point of Nikki's career. But they were you know, they were fine. I mean, Nikki Nikki came to San Francisco and joined quicksilver messenger service. They sat around for nine months and didn't do anything. All right. Thank you for the call. Let's say hi to a first time caller line. Bob is in Peoria, Illinois. Bob, Bob, Bobby fish who cholera from Peoria, Peoria, Illinois. Listen to you on one hundred point three FM. Welcome. And my question is Richard glass show. Great fillon. You're from Toronto. Great, Mr. Salvin, great. This is awesome show. And now that I'm a first time caller line onto coast to coast AM. Welcome aboard. Thank you since. I've been listening to it for years. Now, I had a couple of questions first of all I heard that. Vince well-mixed who is the laugh keyboard player when Jerry was still alive. He came. He could play with the tubes. Correct. Yep. Commit suicide. You didn't dude? The Jerry's death. Not only ended the Grateful Dead. But it also put Vince sort of on the outside of everything, you know, he's only been in the band a couple of few years, and it was very very depressing events. I mean, he really the there was a kind of pathetic suicide attempt on the rat dog bus, and that was his last sort of event as a member of any of the official Grateful Dead bands. And then he he he kept trying to get back into their good graces, and it just never worked and in the long run. Yeah. You know, the depression over came in and then by the way, the tubes. You mentioned the tubes. I loved the tubes. There. One of the best bands in the world at the time. And the only people in new lived in San Francisco. If I may there are several songs that Jerry played on one of them is what lake shore drive teach your children. Well, and. And. Bobby and the Grateful Dead influence here in Peoria, Illinois is just massive. The influence that the great my first Grateful Dead show gave me influenced me, I I went out and learn how to drive a truck and then a tractor trailer. And after I learned how to do that somehow or another house out in California. And I was talking to rob Halford on a phone call like this radio show, and he told me to go learn how to mix stage monitors. So man, I got into the show business thing. And after Jerry guide. I was a stagehand. Union guy here in Peoria and. Is neon ice come through town and. I wound up going out on tourism. And I went up and down the east took a tour out built a tour and get up and down the east coast and every venue, we played I would go into that fan you, and I would have four tapes. And when we set up the PA, we jam up we jam out some shows from Hampton Coliseum Madison Square Garden or Rosemont horizon. I tell you what. Influence the Grateful Dead had on the the stagehand world is awesome. That's an excellent point Bob in Peoria land, Illinois. Thank you for that. Let's say hi to Keith in Rochester, New York. Good morning. Keith. Welcome to coast to coast AM. Yes, sir, right here. I'm holding Mr. Salvin book L Taumont, the actual data that concert was this Saturday to six of December nineteen sixty nine. If anyone's wondering, I would encourage everyone to get this book, it's very well written and fast paced, and I have three fast questions of which will include the dead. I stop you mentioned a Pamela in this book there, there's a mess, Pamela who started out with Jimmy page, and then ended up somewhat when she was very beautiful. And I was wondering politely whatever happened to miss, Pamela misbehave is out there in the world on Facebook. And she sells vintage clothing on EBay, and she's still beautiful woman. I wanna ask about Mickey Hart's father Lenny who became the group's businessman. Manager and from day one was stealing from the group and deputy absconded with a lot of money. You are earlier mentioned a large amount of money fifty million dollars. What nest book politely, you will make clear that the the grateful dead's finances. We're all always a precarious. And was wondering how that worked? They were always they were not a commercial band and their their finances were always on the edge. I'm just trying to tie the two together. And then I have a third question. When Lenny stole a lot of money in terms of the Grateful Dead. It was pretty much all the money they had. But I think the amount was about eighty thousand dollars, which is not a lot of money when you think about like stealing an entire company's net worth and. Yeah, he disappeared and the money disappeared and. Hired a private detective to find him expound him. He was arrested. He went to jail it came out of jail. He died and Mickey went to his funeral to spit on his coffin. Oh. Wow. Wow. All right, Keith. One more quick one. Best drummer ever, I go back, and I remember drummers like, gene croup up and other drummers and going back that far and was wondering who who you think the in terms of who the all time greatest drummer? Jesus. So many, you know, I mean like just a bunch just popped in my head. Would it be? How would it be Jim Kelton or what have you prairie prince of the tubes? That's probably why his name pop in. But he is up there. I'm telling you. It might be somebody. We haven't heard jeez. The greatest drummer, you know, one of my favorites was the Tom Arte Lena who played for the N RBQ had a real unique signature style. A lot of the the the great Vert back. Rak records were played by guy named Gary Chester. He he's he's unsung hero of of recording sessions in New York. God, I don't know, man. I it's hard to say, I mean, other people probably think like about like, Keith moon, and John Bonham or something like that. But you know, I'm I'm more along the Tim kilter lines. And thank you for that. Go ahead. Appreciate that. Thank you. You know, if they had not gotten together in two thousand fifteen for these great, concerts, your story would have ended on our just would have been a tale of litany, and whoa with no happy ending would anybody of you'd say that because I'm I put this book together as a proposal in two thousand and six and the thing that spurred me was there was this convergence of of events. One was the death of ramrod their longtime Rosie who was really is crucial to their seen as Jerry was and like two days later, really the moving van shows up and pulls the tape library out and sends it down to Burbank. We're Warner Brothers is going to take over the band's greatest asset and all four guys weren't even speaking to each other at that point. I thought man, you know, the door just slammed shut that's the end of that whole thing. And I put together this book proposal and. All the publishers just thought it was ridiculous because it's just a a book that's just a downward spiral. And all it goes all the way down one guy said this be a good book for people that don't like the dead. After fairly. Well, I ran into Mickey Hart like week or so afterwards, and he was just. Whole and complete and well in ways I hadn't seen him in years. And I realized oh, there's my happy ending. And that's where Pamela comes in. I was in the middle of writing Almonte and I test Pamela with of revising my old proposal. And had it not been for the reunion. You wouldn't have had your happy ending. There was no happy ending until then. And and really, you know, you can go back like six months before the the reunion, and they still weren't ready for happy. Brian is in Colorado Brian on the wildcard line. Welcome to coast to coast AM, Richard and coast, AM personnel. Thank you very much for taking my call goal. Thanks for writing the book bring him back. These memories is great. I lived in San Francisco and sixty nine seventy on blessed to say, see the debt a lot. I've got a story that I read maybe an Rolling Stone. I'm not sure where I read it. And I left the city in wait nineteen seventy so Steph, we happened after that it was before the first European tour and Joel probably knows when that was or close. But anyway, was after I was gone. And. Joel mentioned that at one point there were like three hundred employees, and it was a big family. And it was kind of that way. Not to that extent. Maybe but in sixty nine seventy so anyway before the tour, there's this they're going on a European tour, and everybody's psyched and all the people, you know, everybody the person who's taking care of mailing list of all the fans, and people would do whatever all these different people that hang rooms hangers on. It's not really a good word. It was it was a family and they're a large family. And so they're all wondering, we'll do some of us go to half of us go to any of all of us go and everybody's wondering and everybody wants to go for sure, I know if I'd been back kind of person I would have wanted to go. I think most people would agree with that. And so it's all kind of up in the air. And then finally Jerry says everybody goes and to me that's a class act. And I think more people. Oughta be aware. That's that's why I called in and take pan and Joel the tubes. I thought they were a great band. I agree with you on that. So you guys. Thanks a lot. Thank you. Thank you. Brian. What do you think of the latest incarnation deadandcompany, the the addition of John mayall? Are you a fan has that tainted the legacy? What are your thoughts? So like, I said earlier, I really have to vivid recall on what Grateful Dead sound like when Jerry was since the band, and the all these posts Jerry things have been interesting to me, but it's just some other people playing the repertoire. Now, the deadandcompany of all the versions of this thing I've seen after Jerry died fan wants the most interesting satisfying to me, I'm not sure why John Mayer is a much better guitarist than you, would you would imagine. And he really doesn't sound like Jerry, but he kind of fits right in the same place and the other guys are playing real great. And they and they love the the bass player hotel. He's a he comes down on the one, you know. That that has got some some disaster. A. I it made me feel good in in in ways that the rat dog never did. But really, you know, I and and people that want to hear this repertoire, and especially performed by people that had been in the Grateful Dead. I just you know, I I don't know how many shows I saw the Grateful Dead. But I saw him at least every year for thirty years. And this is like a pale imitation when you're working on now, Joel, well, I just finished writing a documentary movie about Chicago blues, I've got some projects in the works. And. You know, always looking for new ideas and in good stories. Well, you are you are one of the great treasures in this field and one of the great chroniclers of of classic rock, and because of you and your magnificent storytelling. You know, we can all relive these these years. Thank you so much Joel it's always a delight spending time beyond coast-to-coast love the show. Richard in your in your terrific. Thanks a lot. All right, all the best. Joel Selvyn co author of fairly well, the final chapter of the grateful dead's long strange trip, and what a long strange trip it has been. Well, we can we can go further and continue this long strange trip. We will open up the phone lines. Open lines for the next two hours. And here's what we could. Do. Why don't you share with me? We'll keep it in the rock and roll vein. If you want just a suggestion, but perhaps you want to share one of the great rock moments in your life. Maybe a brush with greatness. Maybe you ran across.

"Well, I think it's appropriate. As we go to the phones that we start with the the great state of Kentucky, of course, the home state of ours. Lee Stanley Steve is on the wildcard line as Steve you're on the line with Joel Selva. Good morning retrieved Whitehall. I wanted to ask you research on one of the midwest largest marijuana networks of eighty and according to the newsletters at a Grateful Dead. They get involved in the four twenty movement ground early nineties. I wonder what your thoughts were about that. And what time line that was because this group actually started the four twenty movement they've mid eighty eighty six and the reason why it say anything is because obviously they're involved in illegal activities. And I just wonder what your thoughts on that. And how the Grateful Dead became the the flow of the four twenty movement in the ninety s news to me. I'm not surprised the they had a lot of interest in in activist movements and and their. Phil Phil Phil philanthropy span. Diverse sort of things like Phil lash was very interested in modern classical composers who aren't very well supported by grants. And and and the Rex foundation debts philanthropic arm is one of the biggest supporters of modern classical music for a number of years. And then then they bought the list of wanian Olympic basketball team their uniforms. So, but I'm not surprised to hear that they're backing legal marijuana that they were all enthusiastic endorsers of the product. No doubt. Steve. Thank you for that. Let's go to Greensboro, North Carolina. Roy welcome to coast to coast AM. Thank you Jolan, Richard. Okay. I brag about this to this day early seventies. I think seventy four after pig pen died they replaced him with NICKY Hopkins on keyboard? I saw them the dead at Duke University, small venue house nuts about the whole west coast in quicksilver hot tuna, and I loved Phil lash didn't really know NICKY Hopkins. Love Phil lashes songs FOX rain Jack's wrong broken chain. They seem more unique and just complicated. Well, anyway during the concert NICKY Hopkins, maybe the greatest keyboard player of all time. I noticed. Oh, the only one knows. Among my friends that seemed like less in Hopkins were just playing for them were playing the lead and everybody else just follow along. It was a four hour concert. And I wonder if there was was there any friction you talked about Phil last. I was there any friction with NICKY Hopkins coming in with the other members. And Phil lash kinda I gotta tell you. I don't I I don't think Nikki ever played with the dead. He was in Jerry's band for a while. He was Keith God show that replaced. Ron mckernan was the probably the guy you saw seventy four. Yeah. I never seen NICKY NICKY Hopkins to it was the low point of Nikki's career. But th they were you know, they were fine. I mean, Nick, Nikki came to San Francisco and joined quicksilver messenger service. Then they sat around for nine months and didn't do anything. All right. Thank you for the call. Let's say hi to is a first time caller line. Bob is in Peoria, Illinois. Bob, Bob, Bobby fish, car from Peoria, Peoria, Illinois lesson until you on one hundred point three FM. Welcome. And my question is Richard gresh show. Great villain. You're from Toronto. Great, Mr. Salvin, great. This is awesome. Shell. And now that I'm a first time caller line onto coast to coast AM. Welcome aboard. Thank you since. I've been listening to it for years. Now, I had a couple of questions. First of all, I heard that Vince well-mixed who is the lab. Keyboard player when Jerry was still alive he came. He. You can play with the tubes. Correct. Yep. Did he commit suicide? You didn't dude? He the Jerry's death. Not only ended the Grateful Dead. But it also put Vince sort of on the outside of everything, you know, he's only been in the band a couple of few years. And it was very very depressing events. I mean, he really the there was a kind of pathetic suicide attempt on the rat dog bus, and that was his last sort of a vent as a member of any of the official Grateful Dead bands. And then he kept trying to get back into their good graces, and it just never worked and in the long run. Yeah. You know, the depression overcame in. And then by the way, the tubes. Mentioned the tubes. I loved the tubes. There. One of the best bands in the world at the time. And the only people in new lived in San Francisco. If I may there are several songs that Jerry played on one of them is what lake shore drive teach your children. Well. And. Bobby and the Grateful Dead influenced here in Peoria, Illinois is. Was just massive. The influence that the great, Mike. I Grateful Dead show. Gave me influence me. I I went out and learn how to drive a truck and then a tractor trailer. And after I learned how to do that somehow or another house out in California. And I was talking to rob Halford on a phone call like this on a radio show, and he told me to go learn how to mix stage monitors. So man, I got into the show business thing. And after Jerry guide, I was a stagehand. Union guy her in Peoria, and. Is neon ice come through town and. I wound up going out on tourism. And I want and down the east took tour out built a tour and get up and down the east coast and every penny we played I would go into that. I would have four tapes. And when we set up the PA, we jam up we jam out some shows from Hampton Coliseum Madison Square Garden or Rosemont horizon. And I tell you what. It'd be influenced the Grateful Dead had on the the stagehand world is awesome. That's an excellent point Bob in Peoria land, Illinois. Thank you for that. Let's say hi to Keith in Rochester, New York. Good morning. Keith. Welcome to coast to coast AM. Yes, sir, right here and holding Mr. Salvin book L Taumont, the actual data that concert was this Saturday, the sixth of December nineteen sixty nine if anyone's wondering I would encourage everyone to get this book. It's very well written and fast paced, and I have three questions which will include the dead. I stop you mentioned a Pamela in this book. There was a mess, Pamela who started out with Jimmy page, and then ended up somewhat would she was very beautiful. And I was wondering politely whatever happened to miss, Pamela misbehave is out there in the world on Facebook. And she sells vintage clothing on EBay, and she's still beautiful woman. I wanna ask about Mickey Hart's father Lenny who became the group's businessman. From day. One was stealing from the group and definitely absconded with a lot of money. You earlier mentioned a large amount of money fifty million dollars witness book politely you, make clear that the the grateful dead's finances. We're all all these precarious and with one ring how that worked. They were always they were not a commercial band and their finances were always on the edge. I'm just trying to tie the two together. And then I have a third question. When Lenny stole a lot of money in terms of the Grateful Dead. It was pretty much all the money they had. But I think that the amount was about eighty thousand dollars, which is not a lot of money when you think about like stealing an entire company's net worth and. Yeah, he disappeared and the money disappeared and. Hired a private detective to find him found him. He was arrested. He went to jail it came out of jail. He died and Mickey went to his funeral spit on his coffin. Oh. Wow. Wow. Are Keith one more quick one best drummer ever, I go back, and I remember drummers like gene croup up and other drummers and going back that far and was wondering who you think in terms of the all time greatest drummer? Jesus. So many, you know, I mean like just a bunch just popped in my head. Would it be? How would it be Jim Kellner? Would it be prairie prince of the tubes? That's probably why his name popped in. But he is up there. I'm telling you, you it might be somebody. We haven't heard jeez. The fate astronomer. You know, one of my favorites was the Tom Arte Lena who played for the N RBQ. He had a real unique signature style. A lot of the the great Vert back records were played by a guy named Gary Chester. He he's he's unsung hero of of recording sessions in New York. God. I don't know, man. I it's hard to say. I mean other people would probably think like about like Keith moon her John Bonham or something like that. But you know, I'm I'm more along the chimp kilter lines. Thank you for that. Altamont? Appreciate that. Thank you. If they had not gotten together in two thousand fifteen for these great, concerts, your story would have ended on our eight just would have been a tale of litany in well with no happy ending would anybody say that? Because I I put this book together as a proposal in two thousand and six and the thing that spurred me was there was this convergence of of events. One was the death ramrod their longtime Rhody who was really is crucial to their seen as Jerry was and like two days later, really the moving van shows up and pulls the tape library out and sends it down to Burbank. We're Warner Brothers is gonna take over the band's greatest asset and all four guys weren't even speaking to each other at that point. I thought man, you know, the door just slammed shut that's the end of that whole thing. And I put together this book proposal and all the publishers just thought it was ridiculous because it's just a. A book that's just a downward spiral. And all it goes all the way down. And then one guy said it'd be a good book for people that don't like the debt. After fairly. Well, I ran into Mickey Hart like week or so afterwards, and he was just whole and complete and well in ways I hadn't seen him in years. And I realized oh, there's my happy ending. And that's where Pamela comes in. I was in the middle of writing Altimonte, and I tasked Pamela with a revising my old proposal. And had it not been for the reunion. You wouldn't have had your happy ending. There was no happy ending until then. And and really, you know, you can go back like six months before the the reunion, and they still went ready for happy. Brian is in Colorado Brian on the wildcard line. Welcome to coast to coast AM, Richard and coast, AM personnel. Thank you very much for taking my call dole. Thanks for writing the book bring him back. These memories is great. I lived in San Francisco in sixty nine seventy on blessed to say, I got to see the debt a lot. I've got a story that I read maybe an Rolling Stone. I'm not sure where I read it. And I left the city in the late nineteen seventy so Steph, we happened after that it was before the first European tour and Joel probably knows when that was or close. But anyway, it was after I was gone. And. Joel mentioned that at one point there were like three hundred employees, and it was a big family. And it was kind of that way. Not to that extent. Maybe but in sixty nine seventy so anyway before the tour, there's this they're going on a European tour, and everybody's psyched and all the people, you know, everybody the person who's taking care of mailing most of all the fans, and people would do whatever all these different people that hang rooms hangers on. It's not really a good word. It was it was a family and they're a large family. And so they're all wondering we'll do some of us go to half of us. Go do any of it do all of us go and everybody's wondering and everybody wants to go for sure, I know if I'd been back type person, I would have wanted to go. I think most people would agree with that. And so it's all kinds up in the air. And then finally Jerry says everybody goes to me that's a class act. And I think more people. Oughta be aware. That's that's why I called in and take pen and Joel the tubes. I they were a great band. I agree with you on that. So you guys. Thanks a lot. Thank you. Thank you. Brian. What do you think of the latest incarnation deadandcompany, the the addition of John mayall? Are you a fan has that tainted the legacy? What are your thoughts? So like, I said earlier, I really have to vivid recall on what Grateful Dead sounded like when Jerry was since the bands, and all these post Jerry things have been interesting to me. But it's just some other people playing the repertoire. Now, the deadandcompany of all the versions of this thing I've seen after Jerry died that wants the most interesting satisfying to me. I'm not sure why John Mayer is a much better guitarist than you would then you would imagine. And and he really doesn't sound like Jerry, but he kind of fits right in the same place and the other guys are playing real great. And they and they love the the bass player hotel. He's he comes down on the one, you know. That that dot some some disaster. A it it made me feel good in in ways that the rat dog. Never did. But really, you know, I. And are people that want to hear this repertoire, and especially performed by people that had been in the Grateful Dead. I just you know, I I don't know how many shows I saw the Grateful Dead. I saw him at least every year for thirty years. And this is like a pale invitation. What are you working on now, Joel? Well, I just finished writing a documentary movie about Chicago blues, I've got some projects in the works. And, you know, always looking for new ideas and in good stories while you are you are one of the great treasures in this field and one of the great chroniclers of of classic rock, and because of you and your magnificent, storytelling. You know, we can all relive these these years. Thank you so much Joel it's always a delight spending time on coast to coast. So loved the show, Richard. You're terrific. Thanks a lot. All right, all the best. Joel Selvyn co author of fairly well, the final chapter of the grateful dead's long strange trip, and what a long strange trip it has been. Well, we can we can go further and continue this long strange trip. We will open up the phone lines. Open lines for the next two hours. And here's what we could. Do. Why don't you share with me? We'll keep it in the rock and roll vein. If you want just a suggestion, but perhaps you want to share one of the great rock moments in your life. Maybe a brush with greatness. Maybe you ran across John Lennon coming out of the Fillmore east store somewhere in Los Angeles. Maybe it's more of a paranormal. Kind of feel maybe you ran into Jim Morrison's ghosted a burrito. Shop in Venice.

Yeah, he disappeared and the money disappeared and. Hired a private detective to find him found him. He was arrested. He went to jail it came out of jail. He died and Mickey went to his funeral to spit on his coffin. Oh. Wow. Wow. Are Keith one more quick one. The best drummer ever, I go back, and I remember drummers like, gene croup up and other drummers and going back that far and was wondering who you think in terms of who the all time greatest drummer Jesus, so many, you know, I mean like just a bunch just popped in my head. Would it be? How would it be Jim Kellner? Would it be prairie prince of the tubes? That's probably why his name popped in. But he is up there. I'm telling you, it might be somebody. We haven't heard jeez. The greatest drummer, you know, one of my favorites was the Tom Arte Lena who played for the N RBQ. He had a real unique signature style. A lot of the the great Vert back records were played by a guy named Gary Chester. He he's he's unsung hero of of of recording sessions in New York. God, I don't know. Man. I it's hard to say. I mean other people would probably think like about like, Keith moon, and John Bonham or something like that. But you know, I'm I'm more along the chimp guilt their lines and thank you for that. Go ahead. Appreciate that. Thank you. You know, if they had not gotten together in two thousand fifteen for these great, concerts, your story would have ended on our H just would've been a tale of litany in. Whoa, with no happy ending would anybody you'd say that because I I put this book together as a proposal in two thousand and six and the thing that spurred me was there was this convergence of of events. One was the death of ramrod their longtime Rhody who was really is crucial to their seen as Jerry was and like two days later, really the moving van shows up and pulls the tape library out and sends it down to Burbank. We're Warner Brothers is going to take over the band's greatest asset and all four guys weren't even speaking to each other at that point. I thought man, you know, the door just slammed shut that's the end of that whole thing. And I put together this book proposal and. All the publishers just thought it was ridiculous because it's just a a book that's just a downward spiral. And all it goes all the way down one guy said this would be a good book for people that don't like the dead. After fairly. Well, I ran into Mickey Hart like week or so afterwards he was just whole and complete and well in ways I hadn't seen him in years. And I realized Paul there's my happy ending. And that's where Pamela comes in. I was in the middle of writing Altimonte, and I tasked Pamela with a revising my old proposal. And had it not been for the reunion. You wouldn't have had your happy ending. There was no happy ending until then. And and really, you know, you can go back like six months before the the reunion, and they still want ready for happy. Brian is in Colorado Brian on the wildcard line. Welcome to coast to coast AM, Richard and coast, AM personnel. Thank you very much for taking my call dole. Thanks for writing the book and bring him back. These memories is great. I lived in San Francisco in sixty nine seventy I'm blessed to say not to see the data a lot. I've got a story that I read maybe in Rolling Stone. I'm not sure where I read it. And I left the city in the late nineteen seventy. So this definitely happened after that it was before the first European tour. Joel probably knows when that was or close anyway was after I was gone, and Joel mentioned that at one point there were like three hundred employees, and it was a big family, and it was kind of that way. Not to that extent. Maybe but in sixty nine hundred seventy so anyway before the tour, there's this they're going on a European tour, and everybody's psyched and all the people, you know, everybody the person who's taking care of mailing list of all the fans, and people would do whatever all these different people that hangers hangers on..

"Forty five forty six. Well, I think it's appropriate. As we go to the phones that we start with the the great state of Kentucky, of course, the home state of ours. Lee Stanley Steve is on the wildcard line as Steve you're on the line with Joel Salvin. Good morning, Richard wind chill. I wanted to ask you research on one of the midwest largest marijuana networks of eighty and according to the newsletters at a Grateful Dead. They get involved in the four twenty movement ground early nineties. I wonder what your thoughts were about that. And what time line that was because this group actually started the four twenty movement they've mid eighties eighty six and the reason why they didn't say anything because obviously they're involved in illegal activities. And I just wonder what your thoughts on that. And how the Grateful Dead became the the flow of the four twenty movement in the ninety s news to me. I'm not surprised the they had a lot of interest in in activist movements and their Phil. Phil Phil philanthropy span diverse sort of things like Phil lash was very. Didn't modern classical composers who aren't very well supported by grants. And and the Rex foundation the philanthropic arm. So one of the biggest supporters of modern classical music for a number of years. And then then they bought the Lithuanian Olympic basketball team their uniforms. So, but I'm not surprised to hear that they're backing legal marijuana that they were all enthusiastic endorsers of the product. No doubt. Steve. Thank you for that. Let's go to Greensboro, North Carolina. Roy welcome to coast to coast AM. Thank you. Joel and Richard. Okay. I brag about this to this day early seventies. I think seventy four after pig pen died they replaced him with NICKY Hopkins on keyboard? I saw them the dead at Duke University, small venue house nuts about the whole west coast scene. Quicksilver hot tuna, and I loved Phil lash didn't really know NICKY Hopkins love Philadelphia songs, FOX rain Jack's Ron broken chain. They seem more unique and just complicated. Well, anyway during the concert NICKY Hopkins, maybe the greatest keyboard player of all time. I noticed. Oh, the only one knows. Among my friends that seemed like less in Hopkins were just playing firms were playing the lead and everybody else just follow along. It was a four hour concert. And I wonder if there was was there any friction you talked about selects last house. I was there any friction with NICKY Hopkins coming in with the other members. And Phil lash kinda I gotta tell you. I don't I don't think Nikki ever played with the dead. He was in Jerry's band for a while. He was Keith God show that replaced Iran. Mccurry was the probably the guy you saw in seventy four. Yeah. I remember seeing Dicky NICKY Hopkins to the low point of Nikki's career. But th they were you know, they were fine. I mean, Nikki Nikki came to San Francisco and joined quicksilver messenger service. Then they sat around for nine months and didn't do anything. All right. Thank you for the call. Let's say hi to a first time caller line. Bob is in Peoria, Illinois. Bob, Bob, Bobby fish who cholera, Peoria, Peoria, Illinois. Listen to you on one hundred point three FM. Welcome. And my question is Richard grass. Yo great Fillon. You're from Toronto. Great, Mr. Salvin, great. This is awesome. Shell. And now that I'm a first time caller line onto those to coast AM. Welcome aboard. Thank you since. I've been listening to it for years. Now, I had a couple of questions. First of all, I heard that Vince Wells who is the lab keyboard player when Jerry was still alive. He came. He used to play with the tubes. Correct. Yep. Commit suicide. He didn't dude. He did. Jerry's death. Not only ended the Grateful Dead. But it also put Vince sort of on the outside of everything, you know, he'd only been in the band a couple of few years, and it was very very depressing events. I mean, he really there was a kind of pathetic suicide attempt on the rat dog bus, and that was his last sort of event as a member of any of the official dance. And then he he he kept trying to get back into their good graces, and it just never worked and in the long run. Yeah. You know, the depression over came in and then by the way, the tubes. You mentioned the tubes. I loved the tubes. They one of the best bands in the world at the time. And the only people who knew lived in San Francisco. If I may there are several songs that Jerry played on one of them is let lake shore drive teach your children. Well. And. Bobby and the Grateful Dead influenced here in Peoria, Illinois, is was just massive. The influence that the great my first Grateful Dead show gave me influenced me, I I went out and learn how to drive a truck and tractor trailer. And after I learned how to do that somehow or another house out in California. And I was talking to rob Halford on a phone call like this radio show, and he told me to go Leonard how to mix stage monitors. So man, I got into the show business thing. And after Jerry guide. I was a stagehand union guy her in Peoria and. Is neon is come through town, and I wound up going out on tour with them. And I want up and down the east took a tour out built a tour and up and down the east coast and every venue, we played I would go into that. I would have four tapes. And when we set up the PA jam up, we jam out some shows from Hampton Coliseum Madison Square Garden or Rosemont horizon. I tell you what. The influence the Grateful Dead had on the the stagehand world is awesome. That's an excellent point Bob in Peoria land, Illinois. Thank you for that. Let's say hi to Keith in Rochester, New York morning. Keith. Welcome to coast to coast AM. Yes, sir, right here. I'm holding Mr. Salvin book L Taumont, the actual data that concert was this Saturday, the sixth of December nineteen sixty nine if anyone's wondering I would encourage everyone to get this book. It's very well written and fast paced, and I have three fast questions, which will include the dead. I stop you mentioned a Pamela in this book, there's a mess, Pamela who started out with Jimmy page, and then ended up somewhat with Mick Jagger. She was very beautiful, and I was wondering politely whatever happened to miss, Pamela, miss is out there in the world on Facebook. And she sells vintage clothing on EBay, and she's still beautiful woman. I want to ask about Mickey Hart's father Lenny who became the group's businessman. Manager from day. One was stealing from the group and deputy absconded with a lot of money. You earlier mentioned a large amount of money fifty million dollars. What Ness book politely, you, make clear that the the grateful dead's finance is. We're all always precarious and was wondering how that worked. They were always they were not a commercial band and their their finances were always on the edge. I'm just trying to tie the two together. And then I have a third question. When Lenny stole a lot of money in terms of the Grateful Dead. It was pretty much all the money they had. But I think that the amount was about eighty thousand dollars, which is not a lot of money when you think about like stealing entire company's net worth and. Yeah, he disappeared and the money disappeared and. Hired a private detective to find him found him. He was arrested. He went to jail it came out of jail he died and Mickey went to his funeral spit on his coffin. Oh, wow. Wow. One more quick. The best drummer ever, I go back, and I remember drummers like gene croup up and other drummers and going back that far and was wondering who who you think the in terms of who the all time greatest drummer Jesus so many now I mean, like just a bunch just popped in my head. Would it be Hal Blaine? Would it be Jim Keller? Would it be prairie prince of the tubes? That's probably why his name popped in. But he is up there. I'm telling you, the it might be somebody. We haven't heard jeez. The betas drummer, you know, one of my favorites was the Tom Arte Lena who played for the in BQ, he had a real unique signature style. A lot of the the the great Vert back records were played by a guy named Gary Chester. He he's he's unsung hero of of recording sessions in New York. God. I don't know man is I it's hard to say. I mean other people would probably think like about like, Keith moon, and John Bonham or something like that. But you know, I'm I'm more along the Tim Keller lines. Thank you for that. Sorry. Go ahead Altimonte. Appreciate that key. Thank you. If they had not gotten together in two thousand fifteen for these great, concerts, your story would have ended on our ages would have been a tale of litany and well with no happy, ending anybody. You'd say that because I'm I put this book together as a proposal in two thousand and six and the thing that spurred me was there was this convergence of of events. One was the death of ramrod their longtime Rhody who was really is is crucial to their seen as Jerry was and like two days later, really the moving van shows up and pulls the tape library out and sends it down to Burbank.
