John Scher, part 4 of 4: Jerry Garcia, Bill Bradley and the price of concert tickets

John Scher, part 4 of 4: Jerry Garcia, Bill Bradley and the price of concert tickets

Podcast of interview with John Scher. A minute or so in he tells the story of bailing Garcia and Hunter out for a pot bust in New Jersey. Goes until the 5-minute mark. Given that he is discussing this in the context of the start of his career and work with the Dead and that he says it happened in Mount Holly, NJ, the story must relate to the bust on 3/27/73.

I had never known Hunter was involved, I don't think. Though it's also possible that I did, but didn't know it.

A bit more Jerry talk 6 minutes in. Second smartest guy Scher ever met, after Bill Bradley. Wow.

Nice to hear from the man himself. I have rarely found any information on the John Scher-Jerry Garcia relationship.
