You won't find many bass players on the jam band scene more respected than Oteil Burbridge. He's best known for his time in The Allman Brothers Band, where he served from 1997 until the group ended their storied career in 2014. Before that, Burbridge was in the Aquarium Rescue Unit, a group founded by former wrestling manager Colonel Bruce Hampton that was known for blending top-tier musicianship with freewheeling fun. After The Allman Brothers, Burbridge formed Dead & Company with John Mayer, Jeff Chimenti, and Grateful Dead alums Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. This summer, they embarked on their last tour. Burbridge's latest project is Dead-adjacent: An album of eight ballads written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia called Lovely View Of Heaven. You can hear his jazz influence all over the record, and I have to say his singing is on point as well. Burbridge has been performing these songs with his group Oteil & Friends. Burbridge is usually on the hosting end of the podcast - he has his own called Comes a Time - but here he joins me to take us through the album and offer some incredible insights on the Hunter/Garcia songwriting team. https://www.oteilburbridge.com/ https://www.songfacts.com/ https://www.facebook.com/songfacts https://twitter.com/Songfacts http://pantheonpodcasts.com/ https://twitter.com/pantheonpods Hosted and Edited by Corey O'Flanagan https://twitter.com/ofe1818 https://www.instagram.com/coreyofe/ firstname.lastname@example.org Songfacts Podcast Spotify Playlist https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3IThMW5yB8XnFh5cS2gTxR?si=KAhiqWRcSIy5uxb2sZPFTA This show is part of Pantheon Podcasts.

With fellow drummer Bill Kreutzmann, Hart formed one-half of The Rhythm Devils, keeping time for the Dead between 1967 and 1971, rejoining in 1974 and remaining through 1995. While Hart largely left songwriting duties to his band mates, he did contribute to one of the Grateful Dead's signature songs, “Fire On The Mountain.”Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter wrote the words to “Fire On The Mountain.” In Hunter's book of lyrics, Box Of Rain, he described the circumstances surrounding the writing of the song, which sound strikingly similar to the current situation in parts of California and surrounding states. Hunter wrote: Written at Mickey Hart's ranch [in Novato, California] in heated inspiration as the surrounding hills blazed and the fire approached the recording studio we were working … The official Grateful Dead website, Dead.net, further describes the early stages of “Fire On The Mountain,” explaining:Hart, credited with the music for the song, recorded a proto-rap version of the song for an unreleased album entitled Area Code 415, recorded in 1972 and 1973. It was also included on a Mickey Hart album entitled Fire On The Mountain, recorded in 1973-74. It appeared as an instrumental entitled “Happiness is Drumming” on Hart's 1976 studio album, Diga. And it finally began showing up in the Grateful Dead repertoire, sung by Jerry Garcia, in 1977, undergoing a number of variants of the lyrics until it settled into the form that was eventually recorded and released on Shakedown Street, in November 1978. Dead played it 254 times in concert First: March 18, 1977 Winterland Last: July 2, 1995 Deer Creek SHOW #2: Stronger Than Dirt Grateful Dead June 17, 1975 Winterland Grateful Dead Live at Winterland Arena on 1975-06-17 : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet ArchiveTrack No. 121:00 – 2:10 By Mickey Bill and PhilFrom Blues For Allah album (1975) – First part of the Blues For Allah suitePlayed a total of 5 times by the DeadFirst – 9.11.1974 – which is Mickey's birthday but there is a controversy as to the song labeled as Stronger than Dirt is in fact that song or rather, the long outro from Eyes of the World, the song played right before it.

He was 76. Died at home in Sag Harbor, NY of skin cancer Buffett's hits like Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise which mingled country rock with bits of calypso melodies and had wry lyrics about the care free life of boating and loafing at beachside bars, made him a cult hero on a huge scale. He sold 23 million albums in the US, on part with Jimi Hendrix and the Beastie Boys Buffett was one of pop music's most successful and ambitious businessmen, building an empire on the brand of good times and island escapism that he celebrated in his songs. That included Margaritaville restaurants and resorts, footwear, drink mixes and a 2018 Broadway jukebox musical, Escape to Margaritaville. This year Forbes estimated Jimmy's net worth at $1 billion. SHOW #4: Scarlet Begonias Jimmy Buffet August 2, 2023 (Jerry's 80th birthday) Maine Savings Amphitheatre Bangor, Maine Scarlet Begonias (Garcia tribute) - Jimmy Buffet 08/02/22 Maine Savings Amphitheater Bangor,Maine - YouTube Start – 1:30 n celebration of legendary Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia's 80th birthday, which occurred (August 1, 2022), Jimmy Buffett performed a cover of the seminal Robert Hunter/Garcia penned number, “Scarlet Begonias” while on stage at the Maine Savings Amphitheater in Bangor, Maine, last night. Following a hefty rain delay, his 28-song set ensued as Buffett reminisced on the times he and his band spent performing with the Grateful Dead years ago. He also offered a shout-out to the Deadheads in the crowd before a groovy light display and hypnotic imagery engulfed the stage.Prior to the start of the song, Buffett addressed the crowd; he stated: “Jerry, wherever you are, here you go.” Of course there is a crossover between Deadheads and Parrotheads – both high devoted fans who travel to see their band, dress for the occasion, attend shows in “slightly altered states” from different substaces, know all the words to all the songs and have seen their band too many times to count. Jimmy also appeared on the World Wide Ripple video in 2020. I cannot find any instance of the Dead covering a Jimmy tune. Also, RIP Steve Harwell, Smash Mouth vocalist, who sang the band's big 1999 hit, “All Star”. Still a hit today, unique voice. Died on Sept. 4th age 56 OUTRO: Margaritaville Jimmy Buffet Key West, FL February 9, 2023 Jimmy Buffett “Margaritaville” LIVE in Key West, Florida 2/9/23 - YouTube 3:00 – 4:25 While Buffett made his home and name in Key West, Fla., after struggling to make it big in Nashville, the Lone Star State had a special place in Buffett's history. Legend has it he came up with the concept for the 1977 song “Margaritaville” at a bar in Austin. The slightly mournful tune about a day at the beach went on to define Buffett's career as a laidback beach bum with a guitar and has been covered plenty of times, as well as inspired a line of margarita mix, frozen snacks, apparel, and a significant chain of restaurants and resorts. According to multiple stories in the Austin American-Statesman archives, the original Margaritaville was "a Mexican restaurant on Anderson Lane." Others specifically claim it was Lung's Cocina del Sur, at 2700 W. Anderson Lane, which is now a bowling alley. But here's what Buffett himself had to say in a memorial for close friend Jerry Jeff Walker in Texas Monthly, reminiscing on visits to Texas in the 1970s: “I came to Austin a lot in those days. I made it there by getting these college bookings and getting on Willie's second Fourth of July picnic. I played Castle Creek many times. I think it was after one of those shows, the next morning I had a hangover and I had to fly home that afternoon,” Buffett told Texas Monthly. “I went to El Rey, a Mexican restaurant on Anderson Lane for lunch. I had a margarita, which helped with the hangover, and in the car on the way to the airport the chorus of a new song started to come to me. I wrote a little more on the plane and finished the rest of ‘Margaritaville' back in Key West.” Farewell Jimmy – off to Margaritaville for good.

Fans have a unique opportunity to check out Mickey's art while he's on the road. He'll be making two special appearances (see details below) for exhibits that are being presented by the Wentworth Gallery.Mickey joins Matt for the latest edition of the Bonus Track to discuss his art, the meaning of "vibrational expressionism" and he also digs into the process of how he creates his works.We discuss numerous other topics, including what Mickey is doing with "Drums" and "Space" on this current run -- and some selected Grateful Dead memories, including a funny story about the "Touch of Grey" video. It was a lot of fun to speak with Mickey about his long career -- and why he still loves what he is doing so much!Here are the exhibition details for Mickey's appearances on June 4 and June 23. ARTIST'S STATEMENT“These visual representations from my sonic-driven world are snapshots into the music I am making. The basis of all life is vibratory, from the cosmos to human organism to the rhythms of nature and the music that come from what we make, from what we call culture. These are the worlds of rhythm that envelop us on a daily basis. Understanding these rhythms is essential in our daily lives. These works have been drummed, vibrated into existence. This technique is essential in the creation of my art.” – Mickey Hart IN GALLERY APPEARANCES BY MICKEY HART(artist will be in attendance at both showings - contact the Gallery for information on attending) SUNDAY, JUNE 4 @ 2:00 PMWentworth Gallery at Tysons GalleriaAddress: 1807 Galleria at Tysons II, McLean, VA 22102(703) 883-0111 FRIDAY, JUNE 23 @ 6:30 PMWentworth Gallery at Mall at Short HillsAddress: 1200 Morris Tpke, Short Hills, NJ 07078(973) 564-9776
