As part of the 75th birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Grateful Dead’s drummer Mickey Hart will play a replica of the Bridge.
From KGO ABC San Francisco:
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — On Memorial Day weekend, the Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th birthday celebration will include a unique performance: a legendary Bay Area musician will be playing a giant replica of the bridge.
Some time back in the late 1960s or early 70s, just as the Grateful Dead was becoming a powerful musical force, one of the band’s drummers became entranced by the Golden Gate Bridge.
“I sensed that there was sound coming from the bridge and I pictured it as a giant wind harp,” Mickey Hart said.
Hart wanted to play the bridge like an instrument, so he snuck out in the middle of the night with a rubber hammer.
“Tapping on the bridge and trying to record it,” he said.
