From Tom’s Reading List

San Francisco Chronicle: ‘No Simple Highway: A Cultural History of the Grateful Dead’ – “No one who writes about the Dead and their music sympathetically can do so without some experience with psychoactive substances, and yet no one who wants to write about them coherently can afford to be tripping all or most of the time.”

Billboard: Grateful Dead to Reunite, Jam With Trey Anastasio for Final Shows — “In a match made in hippie heaven, Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio will join the four living original members of The Grateful Dead for three 50th-anniversary shows July 3-5 at Soldier Field in Chicago. The Dead’s last performance with Jerry Garcia, who died in August 1995, was at the same 55,000-seat capacity venue on July 9, 1995.”

Agence France-Press: Grateful Dead reunion delights senior US senator – “Leahy said that both the Grateful Dead and Phish have promised him tickets, but that he would need to wait to see if the Senate schedule allowed him to head to Chicago. Leahy has kept his passion for music while maintaining an industrious schedule as a senator. A staunch liberal, Leahy has been key in fights to reform the immigration system, protect civil liberties and most recently to re-establish relations with Cuba. His seniority made him third in line of presidential succession until the rival Republican Party took control of the Senate this month.”
