'The Dead' at Shoreline | Review

Billy Kreutzmann | Fox Theater | 2/21/09 | Review

Of all the members of the Grateful Dead, Billy Kreutzmann, really knew how to retire.  Hanging out in Hawaii, he showed none of the predilection for road-warrioring into the sunset like his bandmates.  Sure he'd play with the boys when they got back together for the full band gigs and after ten years on the island he started playing out more often with various old cronies, but he did

Kreutzmann, Burbridge, & Murawski Give Cheers to "Good Times"

In the late sixties and early seventies they had Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but they didn't quite have in sound and performance what Bill Kreutzmann's power trio has today.

Bill Kreutzmann Announces NYE Shows

Bill Kreutzmann, Grateful Dead drummer for the band's entire thirty year career, rings in the New Year in the state he calls home - Hawaii.  On December 29th and 31st, Kreutzmann is joined on stage in Maui by Austin bluesman Papa Mali, James "Hutch" Hutchinson (bass guitar/Bonnie Raitt Band), and Matt Hubbard (piano/Willie Nelson Band) for two very special evenings of music.  These New Year's shows launch a busy year ahead for

Are you a Grateful Dead snob? An easy way to answer that question is to read through the following list of statements. If any describe you, then you might fit the bill.
 
1. You will only listen to soundboard recordings.
2. You measure a person based on how many shows they saw, regardless of their age.
3. People who think Phish was the logical next step after The Grateful Dead don't have a clue.
