7 Walkers

For those of you who have been reading this blog for a while may know, I have a bit of a thing for The Grateful Dead. I don't believe I'm a "Dead Head," though others might disagree, because I really don't know if I understand what it means to be one. But that's a completely different conversation than what I set out to discuss.

Bill Kruetzmann, who was the drummer for The Grateful Dead, is in a new band called 7 Walkers. Now typically I don't promote, nor do I really listen to, the bands that germinated from The Dead (another conversation not needing to happen here), but 7 Walkers—well—if you didn't know who Kruetzmann is, and you didn't listen to them on the internet, with all its experience-shaping links, you would never know there was a connection. Oh shit! and Robert Hunter is involved too. But that's not why I like them.

Listen to Chingo; and whether you're a Dead fan or not, think of it how you may.
