Bob Weir: Weir Here

Bob Weir is one of rock’s great rhythm guitarists. But that’s not all. Weir wrote many of the Grateful Dead’s best songs and has been a big part of its personality for decades. "Weir Here: The Best of Bob Weir" is his first career retrospective. The two CD-set is quite a collection, from quite a career. (Note: the sound quality of this phone interview varies, but stick with it – Weir says interesting things).
