On the first time I met Jerry [Garcia]: “. . .And we go backstage. There’s Jerry, wide-eyed, still ready to talk, and he pulls out a couple of joints. We’re smoking dope, David [Grisman]’s there, he said, ‘Hey! Jerry, I want you to meet my friend, Richard Loren. He’s booked Liberace.’ I got a few laughs out of that, and then we got on.”

I had a fantastic interview on KAWL radio the last time I was in San Francisco, talking about High Notes and my time working with Jerry and the Grateful Dead. Take a listen here: http://ow.ly/HqVL5
