Last night was fun...the problems were many and it was quite revealing to me why I have moved on from this scene and band, but I had a great time singing and dancing and especially enjoyed all the ballads!
Driving down from Boulder on HWY 93, our VW Bus and every one coming from the north were treated to a wicked lightning show. It’s funny, but my friends and I often joke about leaving our little bubble in Boulder, driving into Jefferson County, seeing the factories and sprawl instead of our lovely open space. Most of the drive is really pretty though. But the city council in Golden hasn’t a clue, they have some of the loveliest geography in America, and instead preserving it, they have turned much of into cookie cutter America. But I digress…

Me & Bobby McGee
The Grateful Web sat down with Mark Karan, guitarist for RatDog, backstage at the Paramount Theater in Denver to talk about the status of the jamband scene, changing demographics at the shows, Weir's insatiable need to be on the road and why Karan knows he is lucky as hell to be getting paid (and laid) to play with Bobby.
