Grateful Dead lyricist, and co-founder of the EFF, John Perry Barlow, has had a tumultuous year and a half spent in "medical incarceration," living with extreme pain and limited mobility since April, 2015. Tragically, healthy savings and robust insurance is no match for the cost of extended convalescence.

On Wednesday, December 14, tune into and help make difference. Watch The Songs of John Perry Barlow webcast, live from Brooklyn Bowl, featuring Jackie Greene, Eric Krasno, Ross James, Grahame Lesh, Rob Barraco, Amy Helm, Leslie Mendelson, Karina Rykman and more. See this cast of stellar musicians and friends converge at Brooklyn Bowl to pay tribute to the legendary songwriting partner and best friend of Bob Weir, the original cowboy, John Perry Barlow.

John Perry Barlow is responsible for providing the lyrics to numerous Grateful Dead classics, including "Cassidy," "Estimated Prophet," "Hell In A Bucket," "Throwing Stones," "Feel Like A Stranger," "Music Never Stopped," "Looks Like Rain," and many others.

As co-founder of EFF, JP Barlow also penned the Declaration of Cyberspace Independence. We at are especially Grateful to JP Barlow for his dedication to fighting for our freedoms on the internet. We hope you'll join us in giving back to the man who has provided so much to this world.
