    Disappointed, but still hopeful I want very much to like this book, but so far it s just a rehash of stuff most deadheads already know The Dead took a lot of acid They hung out with Kesey and were the house band for the acid tests Owsley financed them Duh I wish Kreutzmann had realized that this information is nothing new and had focused instead on the interpersonal relationships among the band members, how they wrote songs, or chose and arranged the covers they played Kreutzmann f...

    The websites and catalogs note that Drums was the most played song in the band s repertoire I have to admit, it was never a favorite of mine It was, for me,of a prelude to Space, which was often the high point And I didn t have particularly high expectations for this book So I was pleasantly surprised.In general, I am not a big fan of drummers, and especially not of the drummers other people think of as virtuosos I have little use for the Neal Pearts, the Keith Moons, or the Gin The websites and catalogs note that Drums was the most played song in the band s repertoire I have to admit, it was never a favorite of mine It was, for me,of a prelude to Space, which was often the high point And I didn t have particularly high expectations for this book So I was pleasantly surprised.In general, I am not a big fan of drummers, and especially not of the drummers other people think of as virtuosos I have little use for the Neal Pearts, the Keith Moons, or the Ginger Bakers or the Buddy Rich s for that matter I prefer arestrained approach, as with Ringo, or Levon Helm, or Jim Keltner.So, for the most part, I either haven t paid much attention to Bill and Mickey And when I have, its typically because their approach has tended to homogenize a bunch of the the band s stuff There was a time when almost everything took on a slightly reggae cajun feel, and I think that was mostly the doing of the drummers But, I have t...

    I might haveto say about this book in a month or so, suffice to say having read it, I am happy I did I am glad learning that Bill took about as much pleasure in Mickey Hart returning to the band as I did, which is to say, not a whole lot Mickey came to the band and hypnotized Bill once I am not unsure if he didn t hypnotize his way into coming back, either but just the same I always felt that Kreutz...

    This is not the definitive history But it is a fascinating account And it is honestly told by a man who was only in it for the Music.If Jerry Garcia was the heart and or soul of The Grateful Dead, Bill Kreutzmann was the spirit And he tells his story from that vantage point Kreutzmann doesn t recall everything But what he does recount are the emotions of the experience Kreutzmann doesn t tell you merely what happened He shares with you what it felt like to be there.The feelings weren t This is not the definitive history But it is a fascinating account And it is honestly told by a man who was only in it for the Music.If Jerry Garcia was the heart and or soul of The Grateful Dead, Bill Kreutzmann was the spirit And he tells his story from that vantage point Kreutzmann doesn t recall everything But what he does recount are the emotions of the experience Kreutzmann doesn t tell you merely what happened He shares with you what it felt like to be there.The feelings weren t always good And Kreutzmann is up front about it Mistakes are made and disasters ensue This book does not sugar coat it That level of honesty is rare And Kreutzmann should be commended for it.There are numerous hilarious episodes This book is full of laughs Particularly in the beginning But countervailing tragedies pile up throughout the story.As a drummer his foc...

    This meandering memoir frequently doubles back on itself, and probably revealsabout the emotional cost of big time professional musicianship and near constant touring than Kreutzmann even intended Co author Benjy Eisen apparently decided just to sit with Kreutzmann and let his digital recorder run, because the only pretense of organization in the narrative groups anecdotes from each of the band s three decades together Fortunately, the book gets better as it goes along Not surprisingly, This meandering memoir frequently doubles back on itself, and probably revealsabout the emotional cost of big time professional musicianship and near constant touring than Kreutzmann even intended Co author Benjy Eisen apparently decided just to sit with Kreutzmann and let his digital recorder run, because the only pretense of organization in the narrative groups anecdotes from each of the band s three decades together Fortunately, the book gets better as it goes along Not surprisingly, legendary bandmate Jerry Garcia looms large in the telling Kreutzmann also strews some things I did not expect among the sex, drugs, and rock and roll His rueful look at what went wro...

    Title aside, this is a great read for Deadheads of any degree Benjy Eisen must ve written down everything Bill said almost verbatim, because the way the narrative jumps around time periods is ridiculous And yet it works Billy s candor gives the book an enjoyable, conversational tone I especi...

    This is my brother so it is not easy to write this down, but had he let a best that money could buy editor work with him, this would have been a super great book His stories are wonderful, but it has a disjointed feel, no real chronology to it A collection of interesting stories Benjy Einsen of Rolling Stone magazine is listed as co author Their target audience was the fans of the Grateful Dead, known as Deadheads The target audience should have been anyone and everyone with an interest in This is my brother so it is not easy to write this down, but had he let a best that money could buy editor work with him, this would have been a super great book His stories are wonderful, but it has a disjointed feel, no real chronology to it A collection of interesting stories Benjy Einsen of Rolling Stone magazine is listed as co author Their target audience was the fans of the Grateful Dead, known as Deadheads The target audience should have been anyone and everyone with an interest in history, specifically music and cultural history, because that is Billy s TRUE story He is part and parcel of the American culture of the 1960s.That being said, I did learn many details about events that were withheld from the family lore I never knew he was busted for the pot garden, or that Susila, his pregnant wife, had to spend time in jail for possession of marijuana.I am glad he wrote it, the deadheads have taken it apart and boiled it down to the m...
