We Lost Wolfman Jack (Robert Smith) 20 Years Ago

When I heard tthe news it was like a punch in the gut. Wolfman Jack gone? His gravelly voice and wild antics, heard on high-powered stations from just south of the Mexican border, earned the American DJ a loyal following that included a young George Lucas, who later incorporated his radio patter into American Graffiti. That led to him becoming host of NBC's Midnight Special. He died of a heart attack July 1st, 1995 at 57. Read more...

GRATEFUL DEAD: Farewell to the Core Four

Bob Weir says the Grateful Dead's 50th anniversary reunion shows on July 3rd, 4th and 5th at Soldier Field in Chicago will mark the end for the band's "core four" -- Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart. He says, "These will be the last shows with the four of us together."

Weir adds that they thought of numerous ways to bring the Dead to an end. "We had to sort through a number of options. Were we going to do a festival-style event or go back to our classic mode of an evening with the band? We narrowed it down to: Let's just do it simple and clean."

Promoters were all over the band with offers. One had them staging in Indio, California, sight of Coachella; another was for $3 million to headline Bonnaroo. Chicago won out because not only was it where Jerry Garcia did his last shows with the band in 1995, but because it is centrally located. And as for it being held over the July 4th weekend, Jerry's daughter, Trixie, says, "This is an amazing American rock band being celebrated on America's birthday." (Premier)

"I Can't Explain" was released as a single in Britain 50 years ago today (January 15th, 1965).

“‘[I] Can’t Explain’ was recorded in about 10 minutes on an afternoon, and they wouldn’t let us do our own backing vocals. They wouldn’t let Pete play lead guitar, Jimmy Page played lead guitar on it, and like I say, it took 10 minutes to record. It would’ve been better if it took 20 minutes to record and Pete had played the lead guitar.” (Premier) Read more...
