Fare Thee Well and MUCH MORE w/ Matt Busch: Bob Weir's Personal Manager

Attendance Bias

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. I am so excited to share today’s episode with you, because it’s one of my favorite kind’s: the kind where I just ask one question or bring up one topic, and the guest gets to be the story-teller. And boy, does today’s guest have a lot of great stories to tell.That guest is Matt Busch, who has held several jobs with bands that you and I are familiar with but his current post is as Bob Weir’s personal manager. He’s been part of the Grateful Dead family for about 20 years. But before he became associated with the Grateful Dead Family in an official capacity, Matt was an employee at Prime Cuts, the Long Island shop that has been covered and mentioned several times on this podcast. It was through there that I got in touch with him, and it should be no surprise that he was and is a big Phish fan before he became professionally well-known within the jamband world.You may notice that today’s episode is a bit longer than usual. I normally try to edit our episodes down to about an hour but the more I listened to today’s recording, the less I wanted to cut. If you’re like me, you love hearing anecdotes about your favorite band, and today’s episode is a series of anecdotes about two of our favorites–Phish and all of the Grateful Dead and Bob Weir acts since the early 2000s.To help narrow it down, Matt and I decided to go through his Attendance Bias shows like a slideshow–he thought of the more memorable or influential shows he’s seen or been a part of and it became story-time with Matt Bush. In order, we decided on Phish’s show at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, NY on February 12, 1993, the Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Fare Thee Well celebration in 2015, Phish’s show on July 25, 2015 at the Forum in Los Angeles where Matt took Bill Walton to his first Phish show, and then ended up in Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater on October 18, 2016 when Bob Weir sat in for most of the 2nd set and the encore.But I’m taking too long. Let’s hear Matt tell the stories about how to write Dead and Company setlists, Bill Walton vs. the Railriders, and how to pick the encores to epic shows in today’s episode of Attendance Bias.Audio used in today's episode:2/12/93Fare Thee Well7/25/1510/18/16

#90: Drummer Jay Lane | KEEPING A Dancing Bear Beat from Bob Weir to Primus

NICE WORK! A Podcast of the Super Nice Club

From the Hard KNock School of Rock to Dreadlocks and Birkenstocks Drummer Jay Lane has kept the beat for the likes of Dead & Company, Rat Dog, Wolf Bros, Furthur, The Uptones and a bunch of Les Claypool’s projects like Primus, Sausage, and Frog Brigade. Is he the Pete Best of Primus? We’re going to find out. Jay joins the pantheon of Nice Work! podcast guests who are drummers, including Logan Grimes from Midi Matilda, Ilan Rubin of Nine Inch Nails, and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. from the Killers. That’s a helluva percussion section for the Super Nice drum circle (eat your Mickey Hart out). When we spoke to Jay he was speaking to us from beautiful Marin, California where does not live (he’s a lifelong San Franciscan)—sitting on Bob Weir’s deck. We had to ask what he was doing at Bob Weir’s house. The answer goes down every rabbit hole you might have hoped if you are a production geeking hoping for some insight into a symphonic album of Dead music—including one that has Bugs Bunny at the bottom. Music education is endangered. And wow, if you can do anything to put music in kids’ hands you are making the world a nicer place. And Jay’s support of Blue Bear School of Music is just part of what him a super nice human who also happens to be a pretty damn good drummer. Teaching not just keeping the beat but also how their instrument fits into the band. Yes, there’s probably a larger analogy there. We talk about all that and Jay gives us a pretty impressive list of drummers who you should check out. Including underrated tub masters who make you stop for a second and say something like ”Damn, that’s no drum machine,” such as Morris Day and Jellybean Johnson of the Time, Freddy White from Earth Wind and Fire, John ”JR“ Robinson, and legendary session musician and Jerry Garcia Band timekeeper Buzz Buchanan. This episode is home to probably one of our more unusual challenges, but it could win you a one-of-a-kind original polaroid taken by Tod during his shoot for the cover of Primus’ “Green Naugahyde” album. All this, and we also might have inadvertently reminded Jay he is paying for Spotify and motivated him to cancel it. His take: Porn websites are better about giving credit to the players than music streaming sites and apps. Looking at you Apple and Spotify (and, guys, please don’t take our podcast down, thanks). And you heard here first. Jay is definitely coming out with his own album this year. Look for it on, uh, Bandcamp.

Coming from a classical background, Jason's indoctrination into the world of improvisation was literally learning while on stage. His exposure to the Dead came at a relatively late age but soon he was learning about the music while onstage with Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. Jason shares great stories about playing with them and many of the other legendary performers he has worked with.Also on this episode is Nate Powell of Memphis based Left Unsung and we honor Lee Dorsey in the Black Music Moment.Support the show (https://www.themusicplaystheband.net)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/themusicplays)https://paypal.me/themusicplaysGrateful SweatsSubtle and Unique Dead Inspired GearSarno Music SolutionsProducing the finest musical instrument audio gear, designed and hand-built in St. Louis, MissouriBlue Jade Audio MasteringSt louis’s primary audio mastering service since 1999The Authenticity AcademyGet in touch with your authentic self.
