Dudes and Dudettes, I've got a chance at a free all access backstage pass to see the Funk Brothers this New Years Eve in Oakland. Except I've got to sit through the Grateful Dead to see them. I'm no dead head. I'm normally quite open to other genres, but I just can't do the Dead. Plus the likely presence of questionable suspect substances and the the chances of getting a contact and failing a Whiz Quiz abounds. Do I pass or do I go and wear a face mask??
