Weir & Wasserman Are Scaring The Children Once Again

In the late 80s and early 90s, Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman often toured together as Scaring The Children. The two went on to form RatDog, with Wasserman departing the group in 2002. On March 26, the longtime friends will take to the stage together once again as Scaring The Children at the Fillmore in San Francisco. They will be joined at this show by RatDog's Jay Lane (with echoes of the RatDog 3 from year's past, including a notable Wetlands Preserve run in February 1999). Also on the bill is Band of Brotherz, with a presale starting Tuesday, February 10 at Noon EST.

A word or 2 about Bobby in Keller Williams interview-
The entire interview may be read at

CW: What was it like going over to Bob Weir’s (The Grateful Dead) house to record the song “Cadillac” on your album, “Dream?”

Williams: That was very surreal. The whole process of that coming about actually took about a year and half. He is very kind and generous and welcoming. I am sure he knew that I was [a] little bit nervous and he definitely was very cool. It was a very pleasurable experience.

CW: You can hear Weir’s dog barking in the song. Why did you guys decide to leave him in there?

Williams: Bobby wanted a foot-tapping track. This was after I was gone. He had cork floors in the studio, and felt the sound of flesh on the bottom of his foot sounded really good and he wanted to record that. So he did and the dog was outside the screen door and he started barking. We left it in and it felt really organic and natural and like home-studio style, which is what it was. I wanted to leave everything that Bobby put into that song.

CW: The song eventually won a Jammy for “song of the year,” but I remember listening to it for the first time going, “Is that really a dog?”

Williams: It’s very Grateful Dead-y. You know what I mean? There is the record where they are at Radio City Music Hall and the dog walks out on stage. The dog thing to me is very Grateful Dead-scene oriented.

Going Home

Hello Friends,
We are home from the Ratdog Daze in Jamaica.
It was a beautiful time we had there!
Perfect and a bit surreal.
Still a little tired from the journey home.

Already there is video to check out!
Here is Brokedown Palace, which was our final song in Jamaica.
