Interview: Howard Weiner, author of Dylan & The Dead

Cory Daniels interview with Howard Weiner

Dead-air-rose_small A Tale of Twisted Fate chronicles Bob Dylan’s rapid ascent to immortality as the preeminent songwriter of his time, and contrasts that with the Grateful Dead’s long strange trip, during which they went from being a psychedelic band with a cult following to the most popular touring act in America. When Dylan & the Dead launched their historic 1987 tour, Dylan’s popularity was declining and he was out of touch with his muse. On the other hand, the Grateful Dead basked in the unexpected commercial success of their hit MTV video “Touch of Grey.” Inspired by his time with the Dead, Dylan experienced a rebirth as a performing artist. A Tale of Twisted Fate explores the influences, innovations, and legacies of the iconic careers of Bob Dylan and Jerry Garcia.

Dave's Picks Volume 24: Berkeley, CA, 8/25/72 | Grateful Dead

From KISU | Part of the Dead Air (Grateful Dead) series | 58:32

Dave's Picks Volume 24 is a three-CD live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded at the Berkeley Community Theatre in Berkeley, California on August 25, 1972.

Dead-air-rose_small An often overlooked gem from '72 (who's to blame with that rich pool of excellence), 8/25/72 Berkeley Community Theatre finds the Dead laid back and in the comfort zone of home. While one might think this would make the night too relaxed, the band fall in line with their "West Coast best" paradigm. The output is fresh, reaching the outer depths on repertoire classics like "The Other One" and "Playing In The Band" and finding the intricately nuanced heart of emotive numbers like "He's Gone" and "Bird Song." Fans of Europe '72 and Veneta, Oregon will not be disappointed! - Dead.net / Grateful Dead's official website
