A new Bob Weir song from the album “Blue Mountain”
This recording debuted earlier today, on Rolling Stone, and if the above video is not currently viewable you can see it on RollingStone.com. This song, “Gonesville”, was written by Bob Weir and Josh Ritter of The National.
It has been performed live at least once, on Feb 12th 2016, when Bob Weir and Friends did a benefit for the Ring Mountain School at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California.
Here is a video of that performance, Bob Weir with Steve Kimock, Jay Lane, and the late Rob Wasserman:
Bob Weir’s new album “Blue Mountain” is available on Sept. 30th!

An All Star Tribute to Jerry Garcia to Benefit the Ashkenaz Berkeley

Very Jerry 6
Benefit for Ashkenaz, Berkeley
It was a night of many stars and songs, two very full sets of Jerry Garcia Tribute, with Stu Allen leading a rotating band of super musicianship from near and far.
Surprise guest Melissa Etheridge joined the line-up on a the Dixie Cups classic “Iko Iko”, which Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead often performed.
Stu Allen nails the nuance and details of Jerry. His style is natural and the sound authentic,and provided a strong foundation when this band did shift, the players including Roger McNamee, David Gans, Jordan Feinstein, Maurice Tani, Paige Clem, Michael Berry, Amy Berry, Mike Meagher, Joe Balestreri, Pamela Brandon, Jimmie Brighton and more….
An encore set of Grateful Dead music was performed by the Bay area band Totally Dead, and included a spirited Eyes Of The World featuring a full horn section.
A silent auction was held as well, to raise money for the continued operation and support of the Ashkenaz, a music and culture community center serving Berkeley California, as well as a frequent gathering place for our grateful community from around the greater SF Bay area.
Thank you Melissa Etheridge for your visit and support!

Deadhead Tim Tyler, serving life without parole for LSD, was granted Clemency by President Barack Obama
I can’t begin to express how happy I am to share this news… Obama has granted a commutation of Deadhead Tim Tyler’s life without parole sentence, for intent to distribute LSD, which instead will now expire in 2 years, on August 30th 2018.
According to justice.gov/:
Timothy L. Tyler – St. Petersburg, FL
Offense: Possession with intent to deliver LSD; conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute LSD; Middle District of Florida
Sentence: Life imprisonment (July 19, 1994)
Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on August 30, 2018, conditioned upon enrollment in residential drug treatment.
Tim’s sister Carrie never gave up fighting for her brother’s freedom, and used social media to get the word out.
This is the tweet we’ve all been waiting for…
— FreeTimTyler (@FreedomforTim) August 30, 2016
Tim was subject to unfair sentencing, because of mandatory minimum sentences applied to LSD charges, and having had previous “strikes”.
Regardless of the details of the case, Tim’s sentence was clearly far worse than he deserved. Tim has demonstrated that he is a gentle peaceful person, and not a menace to society. After almost 25 years, Tim Tyler will be a free man.
He still had 2 years, and must go through a drug program, but there’s a light at the end of his tunnel, and the light is growing brighter now.
It’s hard to imagine what Tim must be feeling now, but all of Deadheadland is overjoyed for this news. I’m sure his sister Carrie is too!
There are a lot of us that want to give you a big hug Tim. I look forward to seeing you at a show too… Dead and Company, Phil and Friends, JRAD? Your pick brother, miracle ticket on me!
