Episode 4: Punk Is Dead

At first blush, the Grateful Dead have nothing to do with punk and metal. Or do they? Ed and Casey look at the surprising ways the Dead connect to other musical movements on the underground and elsewhere. Have the walls separating punk, hardcore, metal and jam finally come down? We brought in two special guests to help us investigate. Jay Coyle is the founder of Music Geek Services and an instructor at Berklee Online. He talks about the Dead’s trailblazing direct-to-fan efforts and how DIY became the going rate in today’s music marketplace. Michael Brunetto is a self-professed “metal kid” and musician who shares his experiences as a longtime Deadhead who also loves the heavier stuff. Plus another Feed Your Head, this time featuring punk rock icon and Deadhead Henry Rollins.
