I agree that its sometimes best to enjoy one's heros for what they are good at and leave it at that. That being said, I have no idea what went on in Kentucky but I will say this - I went and saw Mickey Hart Band 9/2, here in Richmond. The show was awesome! Dave Schools is a friend of mine and got us VIP passes - after the show he came up and rapped with all of the ole friends (this is his hometown). Lead singer Crystal Hall is also from Richmond and had a group of family up as well. Most of the band was up there as was Mickey. This guy got almost attacked by friends with the ole " I've loved the Dead since forever and blah, blah" He was patient, nice and sincere. He met a dozen people and took all kinds of pictures and then he left. It was 2:30 am, he had just played for 3 hours, had just cruised in from Ohio (10 hours) and had to go to the next town. He made a point of coming up and hanging with his bandmates' peeps. I was frankly surprised by how nice he was. Again, can't speak to Kentucky, but I was shocked to read about this just days after having such a positive experience with the guy.
That's great to hear! I like the positives. Easy to be caught up by the negatives.
Thanks for that!
