So David Gans and I have been personally corresponding with each other. I even helped get him a gig in Bloomington, for which he personally thanked me. I like hobnobbing with the stars, and helping them out. I'm just generous like that.
*For the unenlighted David is the host of the Grateful Dead Hour, the author of numerous rock books, the producer of several albums including one by the Persuasions and the Grateful Dead Boxed set. He's also a rather nice guy.
