One of the things I have done over the last 4 years is connect the dots on different amalgamations of musicians and their actions within a period of time in music when you could find work as a session player, play gigs @ strip clubs and the multitude of venues in every urban center in this country. These amalgamations were everywhere but the cities I have most heavily explored and where these amalgamations seemed to grow off and out of each other have been New York, Chicago, Nashville, Muscle Shoals San Francisco and Los Angeles. My guest is a drummer from Southern California who's laid back style fit perfectly into the white boy blues that washed up In sun splashed LA. He could play folk, ballads with David Blue, bluegrass with Sneaky Pete, and blue eyed soul with Jackson Browne. My guest has a great reputation which is why when Bob Weir came to LA to find a working rhythm section he found one with my guest and Rick Carlos and Brent Mydland on the heels of Silver and Batdorf and Rodney. This unit sparkled and was a great fit for Bobby as he tried to step out of the shadow of the Grateful Dead. Playing a bouncing Poison Ivy that my daughters listen to on the way to school. My guest has seen the industry change. The near impossibility of keeping a unit together is almost unheard of unless you can sell out 30000 seat rock palaces. The values in music and performance reflect that of our society. One of imbalance. My guest still swings the band but provides marriage counseling to help offset this imbalance.

Always late for the bus, that's us. But hey, we made it to the season's lucky 13th episode! The Dead sure were lucky to snag Brent Mydland after Keith peaced out of the band then this realm of existence. Casey, Eduardo, and Kevin all agree that Brent's gifts are many, but we're not so sure we wouldn't return his two (!!!) compositions on Go to Heaven for store credit. But all conflict, internal or external, melts away in the rainbow light of the Dead. Or maybe it's just the gummies talking. One more synchronicity: we put this episode to bed on the anniversary of Brent's death on July 26, 1990. RIP, dear one. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

I originally thought I would play Brent Mydland's last show with the band - 7/23/1990 - but at the last moment decided I would bring you something much happier - the famous soundcheck from the Watkins Glen festival that took place on July 27, 1973.  Long a favorite among Deadheads, you've likely heard this before - but this is one of those performances that deserve to be listened to again from time to time - like using that good china that is collecting dust in the cabinet. This is a fine recording of the complete soundcheck - including Bill Graham's introduction - that captures what made this band so exciting during this peak period of their evolution.  Only a few words are needed here as this will speak for itself.. listen to how animated Phil is right out of the gate - he drives that Promised Land and continues throughout! Bird Song has some wonderful moments where the band starts to take off into uncharted territory - a harbinger of things to come.  Of course the 'star' here is the jam following Uncle.. this is paradigmatic Grateful Dead - unexpected, new, never to be repeated. The 'Wharf Rat' that follows is just what is needed to bring things back to earth.. then !bang!

The Grateful Dead are most famous for their status as a tour band, jam band, and cult band.  They may be the greatest touring rock group of the rock era.  They were originally known as the Warlocks when they formed in 1965 in San Francisco, but had to change the name when they discovered another band already using the title.  Jerry Garcia found the word "Grateful Dead" in a dictionary, meaning "the soul of a dead person, or his angel, showing gratitude to someone who, as an act of charity, arranged their burial."Jerry Garcia is the guitarist and vocalist, and probably the most famous member.  Bob Weir is also on guitar and vocals, Phil Lesh is on bass, Brent Mydland is on keyboards and vocals, and Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann share duties on drums.In the Dark is the twelfth studio album by the Grateful Dead, and their most commercially successful album.  Although The Dead hadn't recorded in six years, most of these songs would be familiar to "Dead Heads" from their touring lineup, as much of the album had been played since 1982 or 1983.  The album got its name because they recorded the baseline tracks for the album in an empty darkened theater with the same lighting they would use on tour in order to capture the "feel" they had for the songs.  The cover art had lettering in the shape of an eye, and inside the "eye" are photos of the band members eyes.  The CD release had the photos upside down.Bruce shares with us this masterpiece from the cult phenomenon known as The Grateful Dead. Touch of GreyThis is the single from the album.  It reached number 9 on Billboard's Hot 100, and number 1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.  It was first performed as an encore on September 15th, 1982 in Maryland.  The Grateful Dead encourage to record the music during their tours, and the number of bootleg recordings make it easy to track the original debuts of songs.  Touch of Grey is the only Grateful Dead song to hit the top 40, so technically The Grateful Dead are a one-hit wonder!West L.A. FadeawayThis blues piece was also originally performed in 1982.  Supposedly this is a tribute to John Belushi's death at the Chateau Marmont hotel in 1982.  Belushi had appeared onstage with the Dead at least once, in New Jersey in 1980.  The opening lyric begin, "I'm looking for a Chateau, 21 rooms but one will do."  Jerry Garcia had a bad drug problem in the early 80's and started cutting back on opiate usage in 1985.  He slipped into a diabetic coma for several days in 1986, so he was lucky not to have shared Belushi's fate by this time.My Brother EsauThis is a deep cut — so deep that it didn't make it onto the album.  It also didn't make it onto the CD, but was the B-side for the “Touch of Grey” single and made it on the cassette version of “In the Dark.”  It is an updated story of the Biblical tale of Jacob and Esau, set in the Vietnam war era.  It was originally performed in 1983 in Tempe, Arizona.  Hell In a BucketWhile this song sound smooth and upbeat, the lyrics are dripping with venom towards an ex-lover. While not a single, this song received considerable air play on rock-oriented stations in 1987.  "I may be going to hell in a bucket, baby, but at least I'm enjoying the ride." ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:“Good Times” by INXS with Jimmy Barnes (from the motion picture “The Lost Boys”)The movie that started the trend towards young, good looking vampires was released this month with a killer soundtrack.  This one was a cover of a song originally done by The Easybeats STAFF PICKS:“Painted Moon” by The SilencersRob starts off the staff picks with a group from Scotland that formed in London in 1986.  The Silencers have been compared to U2, Big Country, and Simple Minds.  Painted Moon is off their debut album, “A Letter from St. Paul,” and made it to the top of the charts in August 1987.  The Silencers would put out three albums before their popish stile was eclipsed by the grunge movement.“Detox Mansion” by Warren ZevonWayne's staff pick comes from the composer of "Werewolves of London."  If this track reminds you of REM, there's a reason:  REM is the backing band for this song and this album, "Sentimental Hygeine."  The song deals with drug use and recovery.  "Well, its tough to be somebody, and it's hard to keep from falling apart up here on Rehab Mountain we gonna learn these things by heart."“Girls, Girls, Girls” by Motley CrueBrian's staff pick is a straightforward elegy to strip clubs.  Motley Crue takes a lyrical journey around the country to reminisce about famous - or perhaps infamous - "gentlemen's clubs" in different U.S. cities.“Mary's Prayer” by Danny WilsonBruce's staff pick is from a Scottish pop group formed by Gary Clark, Kit Clark, and Ged Grimes.  Their originally name was Spenser Tracy, but they changed the name at the last minute under threat from actor Spenser Tracy's estate.  The name Danny Wilson comes from a 1952 Frank Sinatra film.  The song has a lot of religious imagery, but at its root is a story about a boy losing a girl and missing the days when he meant the world to her. INSTRUMENTAL TRACK:“Pipeline” by Dick Dale and Stevie Ray VaughanThis instrumental track was from the beach movie "Back to the Beach", and hearkens back to the 60's beach music  Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dick Dale cover this classic tune for the movie.

This is another of those and, again, I kind of like hearing these conversations during what was a simpler, much different time. This conversation took place near New Year's 2019, believe it or not. A number of reasons held this one back so long, including other podcasts in the Osiris Media family releasing their own convos with David and my not wanting to create a David Gans deluge (which, really, might not be such a bad thing, honestly). So, at long last, I'm very happy to finally bring this conversation to you all.Another thing that made this conversation unique: he was the second person I had on Daddy Unscripted even though they were not actually Dads. We chuckled about that at the beginning of this episode. I will stand firmly by the idea that I thought this conversation would still be warmly welcomed by my audience and an excellent addition to the Osiris canon, regardless. I mean, aside from that... I could always just say: it's my podcast and I'll do what I want (right?).David talks about his friend and writing partner Stephen Donnelly who had been trying to get him interested in the Grateful Dead for some time, trying to get him to go to a show. From looking at what this band was all about, he recalls looking at song titles for insights: "They had a song called 'New Speedway Boogie' and I didn't think boogie music was very interesting, that just seemed like mindless party music. And then they had a song called 'Cumberland Blues' and I wasn't that interested in the blues, either... imagine my surprise when I heard those songs..."In early 1972, the Grateful Dead really got David's interest. Once he got a handle on the improvisation (and conversation) that was taking place onstage between the band members, he states it clearly: "there was no turning back".The very first song that David ever played guitar, it was playing his very own compositions. He firmly believes that gave him a unique voice with his guitar, not starting out by learning the music of others and starting his playing based on a dependency of being able to play other people's music.We talked about Al & Janice Lucas' website called gratefuldeadtributebands.com that keeps track of all of the bands playing Grateful Dead music around the world. There are so many hundreds of these bands playing the music of the Grateful Dead globally. That really does say so much about the legacy of not only the music itself, but the writing and lyrics of the Grateful Dead's songbook.Working as a music journalist for various magazines (including but not isolated to Relix magazine, Rolling Stone magazine amongst others) in the '70s and '80s, David got to learn a lot about ways to make music and ways to put shows together. "I also got to watch the whole nature of the music business change over time from the era that I grew up in that was dominated by singers-songwriters... over time the whole nature of that business has changed and record sales are way down and everybody now, the best way to make a living is to go out and actually play live and sell T-shirts and stuff. You're not selling music into record stores; you're being heard on Spotify which doesn't pay enough to live on."We talked quite a bit about improvisation in music and bands that don't go that way at all, and the ones that do. "Brent Mydland told me once when he joined the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir told him: 'You can't really rehearse for the Grateful Dead. You just have to do it.'""One of the things that I tell people when describing this kind of music is: that everybody in the band has the authority to dominate the rap, and the good grace not to. Through the course of some short, medium, or long stretch of dialogue, they will migrate collectively toward that... Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/daddyunscripted.

My guest today hails from a bastion of regional arts and entertainment. Berkeley California grew out of the Kerouac and Ginsberg beats whose howling gave way to a mindset of creativity by embracing all cultures to form one race, the human race. My guest developed his chops as a Bass player through playing on the bandstand with Salsa De Berkeley and other gigs at Andre's or Jimbo's Bop city or The Record Plant with Mingo Lewis. Mixing a slapping bass style with Latin impulses funk rock. Locking the groove with Carlos Santana when time stood still as my guest traveled the world during the age of guitar hero. He listens, he collaborates he continues to be fed by the music. In the early 1980s my guest merged with Grateful Dead drummer Billy Kreutzmann to form one of the most stealth Berkeley bands that eventually turned into "Go Ahead" with Brent Mydland and Alex Ligertwood partying and playing Sweaty bars and clubs. He continues to play music in his band today or head up to his cabin in the hills to clear his head. David Margen welcome to the JFS --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jake-feinberg/support

The success of Batdorf and Rodney was a confluence of factors. They came of age during free form radio. You might here The Flying Burrito Brothers followed by Cannonball followed by Buck Owens. The jam circuit was alive and well for these seasoned woodsheders. They could go coast to coast have a week or more engagement building indigenous fan bases because you were in such close proximity to the band. Along the way they ran into other musicians that influenced their sound and maybe even joined the band. Record companies had cats like Ahmad Ertegan who saw a place in the enclosing record industry for this acoustic electric duo. Let's get me down with the swampers in a Muscle Shoals with Barry Beckett playing vibes. Or back to LA with the likes of Jon Barbata Russ Kunkel and Brent Mydland heating up and cooling down all in sync. These cats weren't playing Lydian scales rather honky blues lighting up movie theaters, playhouses and college campuses. In these times of electronic music one way of coming back to a middle ground is by playing acoustic guitar, with great output but little amplification. The messages are relayed in stories unpackaged or uncorked slowly discriminating into danceable music.

Go Ahead ​by Jerry Cortez ​What turned into Go Ahead had several different incarnations. The first was a band called Kokomo, which featured Billy, Brent Mydland, David Margen, and Kevin Russell. Billy was the only member of the Grateful Dead in Go Ahead. Apparently, Brent was kind of in the wings saying, “That sounds like fun; I want to be part of that.” So Brent got involved and eventually Bob Weir got involved. ​I love Brent. I miss him so much. He was such a good guy and a remarkable musician. Even at rehearsal, man, he was playing like it was the last time he was going to play. Every time he played, you’d see his whole body move. We used to rehearse at Front Street, the old funky part of San Rafael. That was where the old Litchfield’s Hotel was. There were hookers. I’m thinking, “This is Marin County?” It was a two-block radius of drug dealers and hookers. Front Street was right in the middle of all that. That’s where we rehearsed. ​Garcia would show up and check us out. He dug the band actually. We played one gig in the Bay Area in Concord. The place was about half full. I don’t think they promoted the show. That was the first show Garcia came to. He was the first guy backstage after the show. He had a cigarette in his hand, and he came up and said, “You guys were fu*king great, man.” After that he came to our rehearsals. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jake-feinberg/support

Anyone who has followed my show understands the spiritual and multi dimensional aspects of the JFS. All music's are covered, coming directly from the musician's themselves. Black dirt lives again today on my program because of Brent Mydland. He was the multi dimensional keyboardist who expanded The Grateful Dead's sound. He quickly dropped the bar lines and was chasing Phil Lesh down one rabbit hole while Billy Kreutzmann was dancing on a pin. My guest today is someone who knew Brent better than most. One of the most prolific lyricists in the Western World, he and Brent worked together because it was real as thunder, real as the sun shining. It's so very undefined, the last time I spoke with my guest he was in Mobile Bay, AL. We talked about how Ram Dass was a snake oil salesman early in his career, the April experiment, Bob Weir's angular chords, hanging with Neal Cassady and melting into a cube of LSD while watching Raga concerts at Wesleyan. We didn't talk about his collaborator in chief Brent Mydland. By the time "Built To Last" came along Brent had the most published songs on the album. His felt success real fast and it shot him up and brought him back, and eventually underground. His spirit remains with me as it was in the late nineties when I was at Boston University. I had a chance to talk with my guest while he was giving a seminar on the internet at Harvard. We talked about Brent for 10 or 15 minutes but over the years I misplaced it. Lash the mast.....

It's still the 50s vs. the 60s today in America. Those who are seekers vs. those who play by some imaginary set of rules conjured up by man's view of god and his beliefs about mysticism and magic. It's that thin layer just above consciousness when you leave the physical world and the perceptions and the worry and the prophets on the burning shore. What's funny now is that those who who pushed back in the 60s now seem more like their opponents in the fifties as they refuse to hand the baton off to younger street cats making love in a more interconnected, more image enhanced more digitized society. I want to live in America I do and my show exists because of non conformists like my guest who preferred to surround himself with a heterogenous mix of people you might find in a hotel on Mars while the Doors of Perception churn with tons of steel known as the Keystone Pipeline which will be buried underneath the wolves by the Silver Stream in the hallowed land that my guest pioneered hundreds if not thousands of times. My guest grew up in Wyoming and was inculcated with how it was is and will be. The game was over the fix was in until my guest went off to Wesleyan where he sought his own new found truths about existentialism and the multi-dimensional self. He tripped out with Timothy Leary and was back drinking Champagne from his Cowboy boot when boarding school Yay hoo Bob Weir reentered my guests life. It was at that point my guest turned his years of experiential learning into legacy. While Bobby worked on the melody my guest wrote poetry that wove it's way inside and out of the fabric of our culture. Gone astray you say everyday by the bay because voices tell me so...... My guest has always been on the edge of impulse. Creating terminology that encapsulates the insatiable web world. A world that his daughters are fully a part with new media and social media and communist media and The Electronic Frontier Foundation. His experience in The world of the Dead kept him in the moment of now because there is a fear down here we can't forget. It's got different names like perception and rumination and orthodoxy and ego all the things that my guest left in the tree tops to go looking for his kite. He is cagey, hard to corral, irascible and somewhat of a street scholar preferring experience over information. In 1999 he was ranked one of the top 25 most influential people in business even though he's not in financial services. In Jehovah's favorite choir he worked closely with a real choir boy named Brent Mydland helping him get stuff out of his system. Maybe you know how it feels, but maybe to you it don't seem so real. My guest has spent much of this century traveling to the origins of man in Africa. Mother Africa where he can bring his Bright blue ball to elucidate and inspire legions of young people who may not have every gadget or material good but the desire to seek, to evolve, to grow, see completion and change their world by being themselves..... The stratosphere is his church in conjunction with the soul which is what my show is about and is something my guest did not believe in until he tragically lost his soul mate Elizabeth Horner. Not a domestic partner, or someone who would make a good wife or husband but a soulmate. He docs emotionally and immediately either your in or your out and I'm all in. That wasn't always the case but all that Lightning will be my lightning too...

Along the way on this bus to never never land The spirits have helped bring me closer to my native seed. The ability at @ 32 years old to begin to harness my passion for music with my broadcasting prowess. This is not to say that the journey has not been winding, laborious and full of lessons. Still, there are moments when you realize what your doing is painting a picture of Americana. Mexico is the country south of the United States. And it's in the biggest of cities, Mexico, that my guest started his life. He was around the Cunga as the city itself was thriving amongst the mix of Afro Cuban, Bossa and Native Rhythms. Upon returning to the states as a kid my guest wound up living one block away from Bob Weir. While they never played music as kids it was an initial connection that would be amplified later on. Before Kingfish, the British Gigs and Partying with Brent Mydland my guest had to stand out. He had to get up at an all black club, the kind that this host fantasies about, and play his harmonica. The blues leaders of the Day in the South Bay were the liked if Clifford Coulter, Johnny Carswell and Mel Brown. One day in San Diego I walked into a record shop and noticed this Mel Brown LP and when I looked at the personnel there was my guest on Impulse late sixties and at that point the intersection had occurred.

Greetings Dead Freaks!For episode 73, I am joined by Justin Bruce, music fan and weatherman for Las Vegas' KTNV. Justin recently decided to explore the Brent Mydland years of Grateful Dead so I asked him to come on and help me celebrate the late keyboardist as we approach the 30th anniversary of his final shows and passing. We discuss Brent's tenure, his songwriting, and musical contributions. Afterwards, I have assembled a hefty mix that incorporates his songs and some excellent jamming. I hope you dig it.You can find Justin's musical musing on Twitter @just1n_music. The man did more homework for this episode than almost anyone (so far) so please show him some appreciation. I am tempted to apologize for the length of the mix in this episode but, honestly, it could and possibly should have been longer.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 9 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 9, from Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY on September 16,1990. A confounding volume which sees The Grateful Dead just two months on from the loss of their beloved keyboardist, Brent Mydland. Here they’re introducing two new keyboardists to the mix - Vince Welnick & Bruce Hornsby, while still very much mourning Brent. What follows is a fascinating, albeit uneven performance which features standout performances of “Tennessee Jed,” “Looks Like Rain,” and “He’s Gone. Fusing these unique takes with odd setlist selections and weird sonic experimentations, this is one of the least revered, but strangely insightful peeks into the Dead in a period of mourning, transition, and still fantastic music.Steven and Rob focus on the transition of The Dead from their late-80’s/Spring-90 Peak to their four year descent to July 1995, the strange setlisting of this show, the benefits of compilation Dick’s Picks vs full shows, and whether or not Phil Jackson was in the crowd at the show.36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

This week the Deadpod will take you back to December 4th 1990 at the Oakland County Coliseum for a fine show that showcased the energy that Bruce Hornsby brought to the band when he joined them after the death of Brent Mydland. Highlights here for me include the Mississippi Half-Step and a wonderful Bird Song. While 'Walkin' Blues' is on no ones list of favorites, it is balanced out by a great set closing 'Valley Road'. I wish the band  would've chosen to practice some of these Hornsby tunes, I know that was one of Bruce's frustrations that led him to leave later on, but this one is spot on and has some great energy.     Grateful Dead Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena Oakland, CA 12/4/90 - Tuesday One - [1:10:58]   Jack Straw [5:38] ; Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodleloo [8:46] > Walkin' Blues [5:44] ; Candyman [6:24] ; Me And My Uncle [3:08] > Big River [5:36] ; Brown Eyed Women [4:46] ; When I Paint My Masterpiece [5:02] ; Bird Song [12:26] ; Valley Road [4:57]   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod120718.mp3   Peace to all of you this holiday season and thanks for listening and your support.

This week's Deadpod comes as the result of a request by a friend .. some say the highlight of this show is the opener, I wouldn't go that far but it is a surprise, even for a Sunday! The 'Samson & Delilah' opener only happened a couple of times in the band's history but I think the rest of this set is quite entertaining as well. From April 10th, 1983 in Morgantown West Virginia.. I found the interplay between Garcia and Brent Mydland to be very entertaining here (Brent is certainly up a bit in the mix on this tape). 'Tennessee Jed' is a highlight here for me, as is a slow 'Friend of the Devil' that includes some nice surprises from Jerry.   Grateful Dead Coliseum - West Virginia University Morgantown, WV 4/10/83 - Sunday   One Samson And Delilah ; Friend Of The Devil ; Me And My Uncle > Mexicali Blues ; Althea ; Little Red Rooster ; Tennessee Jed ; My Brother Esau ; Might As Well   You can listen to this week's Deadpod here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/deadshow/deadpod012618.mp3   Pass it on!

To discuss this film and the Dead's enduring legacy, I invited critic, author, and Dead scholar Jesse Jarnow on the podcast.

Rob and Seth get a lesson on many kinds of music from Britain to San Francisco in the 60s, 70s and 80s from the legendary Pete Sears. Sears tells stories from throughout the first half of his career - from his early days with the rockabilly group The Spitfires up until he became one of the four finalists to replace Brent Mydland in The Grateful Dead. Hear about his days splitting time between working on seminal Rod Stewart records in England and discovering the world of San Francisco Bay Area music. His work with the brilliant-yet-volatile Paul Kantner and Grace Slick is explored. We hear his account of an infamous cancellation, and the ensuing chaos at the 1978 Lorelei Festival during which Pete's treasured bass ("Dragon," a sibling of sorts, of Garcia's iconic "Tiger" guitar), was among the equipment destroyed or stolen by the crowd - although Sears' bass DID survive, and would be returned to his some three and a half decades later. Time did not permit for his more recent years to be discussed much, so he will have to return to the show sometime. Episode also includes Seth's updates from his work on the high seas with Holy Ship and Rob's reports on his experiences at Atlanta's "Holiday Hootenanny" and the Umphrey's McGee New Year's run in Chicago.

There's of course quite a lot of interest in the Grateful Dead's 1990 catalog right now with the release of the Spring 90 box set. As I reflected  upon that year, and on this month, I was led to choose this show for the next Deadpod. I've always loved this performance. It took place when I was still saddened by the loss of Brent Mydland and fearful for what would happen to the band, and it reaffirmed for me the power and sway of this music in a way words won't do justice.

Well Fall has officially arrived, and this season inevitably brings to my mind the fond memories of one of the greatest later-era Grateful Dead runs - Madison Square Garden in the Fall of 1990. When the band arrived in New York the jury was still out on their future following the passing of Brent Mydland. By the time they left after these shows, they had a new member, and any questions were answered as to their desire and capability to keep producing great music. The show I'm featuring the next two weeks, from September 18th, 1990 is not the most famous of the run, but it is a very fine and enjoyable show. In this first set I have to point out the magnificant 'To Lay Me Down->Promised Land' closer... Enjoy and may the fall treat you gently, my friends.
