Fun story.... I was in physical therapy the other morning (my back was acting up after surgery earlier this year) and there is what appeared to be an 80+/- you old man just sitting in a chair in the middle of the room not doing anything. He was explaining to one of the therapists that he takes “Grateful Dead” breaks between his exercises because his body needs a break. I told him that comment was wasted on all the 30 something PT assistants there but I knew exactly what he meant. He proceeded to tell me about when he lived in the Bay area and got into the Dead when they were opening for Airplane and when that ended he continued to see the Dead often at the Winterland . He offered how his favorite guitar was “the one with the wolf on it”. I was able to share pictures on my phone of my Wolf and other guitars I made. What a cool and unexpected exchange. Made my day.
