Podcast #18- Conversation with Fat_Man_Rocks- AKA Dave the Lawyer
This podcast is textbook for Strangers Stopping Strangers – a stranger meeting a stranger and hearing their stories, songs and magical experiences that brought him into the Deadhead community- hook, line and sinker!
Fat_Man _Rocks- is what I am consider a leader in the Grateful Dead Twitter community. He shows up everyday- often multiply times a day to share lyrics- pictures- and delivers an overall smile for people to enjoy- and TONS & TONS of people follow him for this reason. There is no business- website- or anything commerce related to his tweets. It is simply for the joy of it, for himself and the community!
Of course I wanted to know the man behind the Jerry avatar- and so here we are! We get the chance to meet Dave, hear some fabulous stories from his experiences at shows- songs that were game changers- a couple birthday celebrations- and a classic road trip to Las Vegas in 1991!
This podcast was so fun to make- because Dave is that deadhead you met in the Shakedown Street section of the lot– shared a bowl & a dance with- and found out you were parked next to his car on the way out …..
Thank you for listening- and enjoy!
