"These days when I go to D.C. I go to the White House and I do business....I feel like I belong there. I think we all belong there."
Those are the words of HeadCount board member Bob Weir, who has been a semi-frequent guest at the White House along with other members of the Grateful Dead.
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 fourth and final of our weekly installments (watch parts one, two, and three), Weir discusses taxes, trickle-down economics, and the importance of getting money out of politics.
