Grateful Dead/Star Wars mash-up


My friend, collaborator, and editor Bud Rogers sent this to me. Have to say, I love, love, love this image. I’m not a follower of the Dead, but he’s a fan. Here’s the note he sent me about the image:

Hi Ben,
Just saw the cover to the newest release from the Grateful Dead (thanks to constant taping, they continue to release 4 – 6  items a year). This release features their concert from May 25, 1977 – which not only was my 14th birthday, but was also the premier of Star Wars. It’s kind of a shame they didn’t do “Dark Star” that night.
Anyway, after the latest couple of podcasts, this seemed appropriate to share.

Thanks, Bud!

~ Ben
