While hardcore Deadheads massed in Chicago for the supposed final Grateful Dead shows at Soldier Field this past weekend, the rest of us were home taking in the concerts via simulcast and Sirius radio. A Deadhead is a Deadhead, no matter where you are.
Macca says he doesn't smoke pot anymore and the stoner world immediately goes into a tizzy.
I like to say I discovered 420, because it's true. It happened at a Grateful Dead show in Oakland in 1990 when I was working for High Times.
My old friend Dave Abbruzzese is in trouble. News reports yesterday stated that the former Pearl Jam drummer is being sought by Texas authorities on a drug warrant dating back to September in Denton County.
During the "Saturday Night Live" 40th Anniversary show on Feb. 15, Tina Fey joked on "Weekend Update," "Also joining us, one of the show's original producers: cocaine." I once did coke with original cast member Garrett Morris and interviewed John Belushi.
