Bohemian Grove and Bob Weir?

Postby BillyBrown1 » Sun Mar 25, 2012 5:52 am

Anybody see the Headcount tri broadcast from last night where Bob gets slapped with a twitter question about being a Bohemian Grove member? He stumbled through his answer and told a story about him drinking with the dude who invented the C.I.A and he goes there cause its the only place to rub elbows with people of that caliber...Geez Bob :shock:

Very much agree, BB1. I also liked how when there was talk it was about causes not politics/politicians.

I agree I dont think they should use their touring as a campaign for a certain person, I think they should stick with their music like they used to.

I forgot about that. I do think it is kind of sketchy that he is a member, but from what I understand is that he was asked to perform there and became a member. There are some great bohemian grove videos out there of some really weird stuff.

well, Micky is connected with DC with his work with the Smithsonian, and they are pretty powerful rich california dudes. Its really not much of a stretch.
