After taking a few years off following the death of Jerry Garcia, founding Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann has gone through a musical rebirth in recent years. In addition to sporadic tours with The Dead, the 65-year-old drummer has led his own trio BK3, recordrd with Journey guitarist Neal Schon and other conspirators under the name Trichromes, worked with members of Phish and reunited with his closest collaborator Mickey Hart for a few Rhythm Devils outings. Most recently, along with New Orleans staple Papa Mali, he co-founded his most fully realized project since the Grateful Dead, the roots-oriented, psychedelic-leaning New Orleans blues band 7 Walkers.
In February, the drummer will travel to Costa Rica for an appearance at Jungle Jam, before beginning work on the next 7 Walkers album. While on Jam Cruise, Kreutzmann discussed his myriad of projects, his upcoming Jungle Jam collaboration with Max Creek’s Scott Murawski and how Mike Gordon’s backstage pass changed the course of his post Jerry-years. 7 Walkers bassist George Porter Jr. also pops in for bit to share some thoughts on Kreutzmann’s current musical renaissance.
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true

And let others do for you
