The Mickey Hart Interview In late at a Count Basie concert at the famed Fillmore Auditorium two brothers in the groove were introduced by a stranger who quickly disappeared into the technicolor ethers forever altering the course of modern music. Hart joined the Grateful Dead officially the following month establishing the band as one of the first with a two drummer back beat as Billy and Mickey physically locked arms and conjured up the spirits of yore with a pummeling mixture of primal tribal rhythms meets big band syncopation. We were fortunate to spend a brisk November afternoon in Boston with Mickey as he discussed his new politically charged album RAMU and his history within The Grateful Dead along with his philosophies on life, music and everything in between. We hope you enjoy.
Enshrouded in hipster mystique and smoldering cannabis, NRPS became extremely popular in the country-rock demimonde — so in-demand that their Columbia output seven LPs from to quickly outpaced quality new material, and the lineup gradually dispersed as the decade and success spooled out.
The swirling three-guitar attack two electrics plus pedal steel throws out plenty of heat and horsepower, and the jam-worthy rhythm section is strong and flexible. Where I Come From finds the Riders fresh, fiery, and funkier than ever.
Does it sound like the New Riders? Eventually, bassist Dave Torbert, drummer Spencer Dryden and pedal steel guitarist Buddy Cage came on board, separating themselves from the Dead, and gaining their own identity. They mined a hippie-country groove ala Poco, with songs about the old west and about recreational drugs which were their forte.
The riders developed a dedicated hardcore fanbase. They finally disbanded inbut a new configuration has just released its first studio album in 20 years on Woodstock records. The band has the impossible task of living up to a bigger-than-life legacy, but it does it with ease, and the legend lives on.

With 12 new songs — seven co-written with famed Dead lyricist Robert Hunter — the band has released its first new studio album in 20 years. Kicking off with the title track, the band sounds better than ever. Their roots echo through the songs — Garcia and the Dead, the laidback Bay Area take on country music, and more.
And yet the songs resonate with a new energy.
The musicianship is impressive, the interplay tight, the solos inspired, the sound warm and bright. David Nelson is still playing guitar and singing and Buddy Cage has long been sitting in for Jerry on the Pedal Steel Guitar, with Michael Falzarano guitar and vocalsRonnie Penque bass and vocalsand Johnny Markowski drums and vocals rounding out this latest edition of the band which has been touring for about 4 years.
This edition of the band seems to have revitalized the old spirit that was prevalent in the beginning and the new songs carry on with that same energy and spirit that was there in the beginning.
Whether it is the addition of these three new members, that happened inor the rekindling of the Hunter and Nelson songwriting partnership or a combination of the two, or just plain old alchemy, who cares, energy is back and this song studio disc has captured the spirit and feel of the band in its heyday, and psychedelic country sound lives to gallop off toward the sunset and bring in more glorious evenings of music and fun.
Kudos to Michael Falzarano for his work as the producer to get this live joy translated to the disc. David Nelson, dressed in his requisite tie dye T-shirt and bandana, took the stage, along with Michael Falzarano, Buddy Cage, Ronnie Penque and Johnny Markowski, and delivered a rocking yet twangy set to get everyone moving.
The Who, The Dead, Queen…each has attempted to assert their pedigree with yet another curtain call.

Consequently, we find The New Riders regrouped under the auspices of two original members, guitarist David Nelson and pedal steel player Buddy Cage—touting their first studio set in 20 years called Where I Come From. NRPS tended toward short, crisp songs, largely because both Dawson and Torbert were bardic in their approach to writing lyrics.
The songs were small stories, vignettes of lives and situations: Where I Come From offers a taste of something for everyone, and the taste will linger nicely on your palate.
