I saw him with the Dregs a few times in the early '80s and enjoyed his work with Jazz Is Dead. He should have been hired to take over for Brent in the hot seat and will be missed. Sad

VR: I will say six names. Where do you think you belong? Tom Constanten, Pigpen, Keith Godchaux, Brent Mydland, Bruce Hornsby, Vince Welnick.

TL: I have would have to say Bruce because, to me, he is such a great keyboard player. I also have a personal thing with him. I have know Bruce since we were teenagers. We went to school together. When I auditioned for the Dead, he helped me get into that.

VR: What was the audition?

TL: When Brent died, they brought me up there for the day. We jammed for about three hours and had lunch. It was big time for me. There I was: "Me and the Grateful Dead in the Practice Room." It was really good. I closed my eyes and Jerry was soloing forever. I remember this one chord where it was going forever and I just closed my eyes and played variations of it. "That’s pretty cool. I am hearing the Grateful Dead around me." It was August of 1990. I don’t sing so………..but I can relate to Vince too. Six years later, we wound up sharing a tour bus together. We got to be really tight. I like him because his not a wallflower. He is cynical and funny. He’s always thinking I guess.
