Oteil dropped some Owsley made L.S.D at The Gorge for the first time during Dead and Company's epic summer tour. We broke the story then, but know he is sharing his experience. Here is our original story. http://www.gratefulmusic.com/2016/07/oteil-makes-its-official-at-gorge-51.html?q=0teil+at+the+gorge&m=1
Major credit to author/journalist Alan Paul for his fascinating interview with Oteil Burbridge. I highly recommend you read it in its entirety at a Music Aficionado interview. Oteil said "Listen to how different that night sounds, because that music and Owsley[acid] go together and I found that out. I never liked to play tripping. I did all that as a teenager and even then I didn’t like to play. My friends wanted to jam and I just wanted to keep it separate,” Burbridge said.
The Grateful Dead's lifetime friend Owsley"Bear"Stanley is rumored to have made between 10-15 million hits of acid in the mid sixties. He was a jack-of-all trades because he also built the historic "Wall of Sound" the Grateful Dead used in the 70s. Even though"Bear" has already passed away, rumors are that 10-20 sheets are still kept for headstash. Rumor confirmed!
The second you're done reading this article immediately read the full interview. Oteil touches on many fascinating topics. I will leave you with my favorite quote.
