It bothers me when he says about Garcia:
"They were generally without sex appeal. Bob Weir, their showman and heartthrob, might be said to be an exception, but he spent much of the eighties performing in short cutoff jean shorts and lavender tank tops—a sight even more troubling, I’d submit, than that of Garcia circa 1984, drooling on his microphone as he fought off the nods."
Does this characterization bother no one else: " Most objectionable, perhaps, were the Deadheads, that travelling gang of phony vagabonds."
Certainly a number of wookies fit in that category. Does Nick not consider himself a deadhead?
I could go on with my disdain for this article....
Apparently I'm not alone Seems like Nick P. misquoted Rob Eaton, according to bandmate Rob Baracco who was in the room during the interview.
From DSO Forum.

I have to say, I was a fly on the wall during this interview. That guy that wrote the article is a hater. Eaton did not say that. He took everything out of context. What a bunch of horse shit. RB
