Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Deep (And Hairy) Throat

Well, Enthusiasts: with the highs come the lows; thus, TotD begins what will probably become a running feature in this next week: Who Said The Dumbest Bullshit?

First entrant up is Billboard magazine, whose article this morning contains this paragraph:

The set ended with a 17-minute “Viola Lee Blues” that segued into a deep jam accentuated by a glorious rainbow encircling the venue in the sky. Said one longtime head: “This is the band that jams with God.” Alas, it was not Mother Nature that stepped in. Rather, the production sprang for the effect, at a cost of $50,000, according to an insider.

Here’s what billboard doesn’t know: TotD has inside sources, too, and one of them provides the context of that quote:

“Benj!”

“Yeah, Billy?”

“You see that reporter over there who looks like he’d believe quite literally anything you told him?”

“Uh-huh.”

“Go tell him we control the weather.”

“Okay, Billy.”

“Good boy.”

“You smell great.”

“What?”

“Nothing.”

I mean: it doesn’t even pass the laugh test. If the Grateful Dead could control the weather, we’d all be dead; it’s that simple.
