Hey, Bobby. Whatcha doing?
“I am, uh, enjoying my notoriety.”
Looks like it. The Dead were just the right amount of famous, huh?
“Oh, yeah. You don’t wanna be too famous, otherwise people won’t leave you alone. And, uh, not being famous at all sounds terrible.”
“Yeah, we were in the Goldilocks zone. Plus, you know, we were locationally famous.”
“Walk in a head shop or onto a college campus? Boom. Famous as hell. Go to, you know, Nordstrom’s and no one had any clue who you were.”
What about now?
“Well, uh, now our fans have Nordstrom’s money, so it’s a bit more of a hassle. I gotta go to Nascar races with my sister-in-law–”
“–now to be anonymous. Folks there thought I was an Oak Ridge Boy.”
Why would they think that?
“I kept singing Elvira.”
“You said it.”
