If the head fits, wear it!
Absolute HIGH-LARITY with Bob, Jerry and Dave.
First, David Letterman teaches Jerry Garcia how to play “Proud Mary” on guitar.
During the interview they discuss memories of the sixties, the isolation of being in the Grateful Dead, the meaning of being called a Dead Head, and the concept of taping.
Jerry says the famous line”When we’re done with it, they can have it”. Bobby says “if we ever make a real good record, people will probally go buy it anyway”.
Then they play an incredible acoustic “Deep Elem Blues”
They come back, and then discuss concepts of “x chemistry” and “gestalt linkage”.
Then they come back for a rolicking tale of tragedy narrowly averted… “Monkey and the Engineer”
