When we last spoke with drummer Bill Kreutzmann, the Grateful Dead icon was having an absolute blast out on the road with Dead & Company — and with another warm summer on the horizon, the jam band ensemble has revealed a slate of tour dates for the months ahead.

In our May 2019 chat with Kreutzmann, geared around the release of his book Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams and Drugs with the Grateful Dead, the drummer reflected on the love he’s felt with Dead & Company:
I’ll have to think about my top moments. I’ll tell you, right now, I’m playing the best I’ve played, and I’m working with the best people I’ve ever worked with in my life. Benjy, my co-author, and my wife Amy have been instrumental in supporting my music. In fact, she was the one who got me to do the book. And we have the best group of people together we ever have.
So this is my top moment. If it were a Top 10, you could skip the other 9, and just go right to number 10, or the best one. Because I’m living the life I always wanted to live right now.
Catch the love on the road this summer!
