Filed under “Of course he did” is this Mickey update: while Bobby and Billy teamed up* with his daughter and Trixie to get inducted into Madison Square Garden’s HoF, Mickey gave a speech at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles that degenerated into a drum circle, because Mickey has turned every event in his life (including funerals and evacuations) into drum circles.
Mickey also fucked around with his cowbell, wore a Dead shirt, and sported a hat that made him look like a schmuck.
Phil was at the restaurant, where the POS system had gone down and all the tickets had to be written down; it was a complete nightmare. Also, Phil travels with Jill and, since reading the book, Jill becomes cataplectic with rage at the mention of Billy.
* TotD’s spies report that there was a friendly and laid-back jam with the two Grateful Deads and Trey. It went so well that at the end of the session, Bobby invited Trey to join the Grateful Dead.
