Time to set those DVRs: Tonight, June 22nd, at 10:30pm ET, Fox-5 New York news will air a very special segment Long Live The Grateful Dead! about the iconic band, the cultural phenomenon it became at its peak, and the resurrection the music has experienced in the wake of their 50th anniversary in 2015.The news package will feature interviews with artists who are keeping the Dead alive in 2017 in various ways, from latter-day incarnations of the original band (John Mayer; Warren Haynes), to stellar tribute acts (Tom Hamilton of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead), to new interpretations of the Dead’s classic catalogue (solo pianist Holly Bowling). The segment will also interview prominent fans and historians like former band publicist and biographer Dennis McNally, reality TV magnate and gay community icon Andy Cohen, and Sirius XM Dead radio host Gary Lambert, as well as a large selection of Deadheads from all walks of life.The half-hour segment will only be aired on TV and will not be available online after the fact, so make sure to set a recording or tune in tomorrow at 10:30PM EST to hear Fox-5 New York educate the masses on the modern Dead renaissance!
