The Grateful Dead sent me and Kesey’s people and a couple of Hells Angels and a couple more Diggers to London to see the Beatles and check them out, to see if they were as socially progressive as they were musically progressive. Which they weren’t at the time. We set up a big apartment as a 24-hour a day crash pad in London, and hipsters came in from all over Europe to meet with us and swap ideas. You know, Bob Dylan once said it was time when you’d drive 1,000 miles for a good conversation. And it was true.
