Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Deep (And Hairy) Throat

Well, Enthusiasts: with the highs come the lows; thus, TotD begins what will probably become a running feature in this next week: Who Said The Dumbest Bullshit?

First entrant up is Billboard magazine, whose article this morning contains this paragraph:

The set ended with a 17-minute “Viola Lee Blues” that segued into a deep jam accentuated by a glorious rainbow encircling the venue in the sky. Said one longtime head: “This is the band that jams with God.” Alas, it was not Mother Nature that stepped in. Rather, the production sprang for the effect, at a cost of $50,000, according to an insider.

Here’s what billboard doesn’t know: TotD has inside sources, too, and one of them provides the context of that quote:


“Yeah, Billy?”

“You see that reporter over there who looks like he’d believe quite literally anything you told him?”


“Go tell him we control the weather.”

“Okay, Billy.”

“Good boy.”

“You smell great.”



I mean: it doesn’t even pass the laugh test. If the Grateful Dead could control the weather, we’d all be dead; it’s that simple.
