The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir was a featured guest on the most recent installment of Spotify Landmark, a series that highlights incredibly influential music throughout the years. Alongside producer Steve Barncard, Weir talks about the making and impact of the legendary album American Beauty (1970).
The interview goes through every track on Beauty, with Weir giving his commentary throughout. Even the most devout Deadheads could learn a thing or two about the lost verse in “Friend of the Devil,” Pigpen’s efforts on “Operator,” and more.
