I have always loved great covers of great songs (I have an entire Spotify playlist mostly consisting of great cover songs), and I’ve always loved the Grateful Dead (my oldest is named after a Grateful Dead song). Here’s a beautiful combination of the two.
Tom Freund, formerly of The Silos (a great band, at least at one time) is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the U.S. Freund met Ben Harper when he was attending Pitzer College in Claremont, California. In 1992 the duo released an album, Pleasure and Pain. Later, he joined The Silos as their bassist, and moved to Austin, Texas. Yep, Texas.
Tom has several records available at Amazon.
