The Grateful Dead is going to reunite for an Obama concert.
The Grateful Dead, the San Francisco cult rock band that has played at political events since the 1960s, will reunite on Monday for the first time in four years to rally support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, a spokesman said on Friday.
“They have agreed to reunite for this one-time-only event in order to lend support to Senator Obama leading into the crucial ‘Super-Tuesday’ series of primaries held on Tuesday, February 5th,” the band said in a statement.
Ironic, isn’t it, that the Grateful Dead are supporting newcomer Barack Obama when it was the Clintons who spent the sixties as free love hippies.
I bet she never expected back then as she participated in Woodstock and anti-government political rallies that she would eventually become the same kind of establishment that young people would rebel against.
