Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann talks new memoir


NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller speaks with Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann about his new memoir, “Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs with the Grateful Dead.”

Kreutzmann discusses how late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia helped him get in touch with his passion for the visual arts, what it was like when a second drummer joined the band, and what fans should look forward to when the Dead play their final shows this summer in California and Chicago.
