Interview: Bob Weir Part 2 – Analog Vs. Digital Music

"I may sound like a serious crank here, but I don't think music means as much to people as when they were listening to analog music....Your body resists digital musical."

Bob Weir – of the Grateful Dead, RatDog, and, most recently, Furthur – sits on HeadCount’s board of directors and has long been a vigorous advocate of voter registration and participatory democracy.

Last fall, during RatDog’s four-night run at Manhattan’s historic Beacon Theater, Bob sat down with Rolling Stone’s David Fricke to discuss HeadCount, politics in America, analog versus digital music, the Obama administration, the Grateful Dead, and other topics of interest.

In the second of four weekly installments (watch part one here), Weir discusses the difference between analog and digital music both in the brain and in society.
