Bob Weir Appears On ‘Shakedown Stream’ Pre-Show
Bob Weir was the guest on the Grateful Dead’s Shakedown Stream pre-show with GD archivist David Lemieux and historian Gary Lambert ahead of a webcast of the Grateful Dead’s July 2, 1989 show from Foxboro, Massachusetts. Bobby talks about staying busy during the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, how the pandemic has affected the music industry, different ways to make music in the coronavirus era and more.
It seems that Weir is staying very busy during the pandemic. He revealed that he’s working on a book, orchestral arrangements and an opera. Bobby also talked about supporting band crews during the difficult times and overcoming latency so that musicians can play live “together” virtually. Weir shared that he was jamming with Bob Weir and Wolf Bros drummer Jay Lane in such a fashion and that the band may finish their tour online. Weir also fielded questions about his influences, a potential Dead & Company studio album and more.
