Brent Mydland Video with Al Franken

Thanks to IronGirl for pointing out that today is the 19th anniversary of the death of Brent Mydland. most famous for his work as the keyboard player for the Grateful Dead circa 1979 through his death in 1990. Although the Dead's keyboard/piano player has been a revolving position, Mydland's helm of 11 years was the longest.

This is one of my favorite videos because it features Al Franken (back when he was just an SNL writer and way before his foray into politics) interviewing Mydland at setbreak of a Halloween show by the Dead at Radio City in 1980...
