Bill Kreutzmann Visits Conan | To Chat With Jam On

Currently on a tour promoting his recently released memoir, Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams and Drugs with The Grateful Dead which he co-authored with Benjy Eisen, Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann stopped by Conan last night to promote the book. Billy was on the program along with fellow guests comedian Patton Oswalt and musical guest The Tallest Man On Earth.

Kreutzmann and Conan O’Brien chatted about many of the tales told in Deal including the early days of The Warlocks, performing at Woodstock and Monterey Pop and an electric experience on the old Playboy After Dark program. Watch clips of Billy’s appearance last night below:

Kreutzmann’s book tour continues today, Thursday, May 21 in Portland, Oregon at Powell’s featuring a “conversation with” the authors before Billy heads to the Bay Area for appearances at Zodiacs in Petaluma (May 26), Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley (May 27) and The Chapel in San Francisco (May 31).
