This popped up on my random play list and it stopped me in my tracks. I love this song and this version, from 2013, is beautiful. It’s about birth, death, and Neal Cassady… like most Grateful Dead songs. (Lyrics & the backstory.)
I just read Bill Kreutzmann’s book, “Deal“. It was like sitting with a really stoned dude for several hours while he tells you stories that are sort of in order but sometimes not and of course you’re stoned too so you don’t worry too much about it making a lot of sense, but you can see and feel that he has some pretty strong feelings. And he has a lot of love/hate going on, and he really, really misses Jerry.
It’s good you’re back into the music, and I completely understand, Billy, why you didn’t want to have anything to do with Furthur, even though it brought a lot of happiness to the ‘heads.
Listen to a bit of Billy and The Kids. He’s doing alright now.
Bob Weir, Jonathan Wilson and Jason Crosby “Cassidy”
