In 2015, Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow suffered a heart attack. Since then, lingering health problems have forced Barlow to spend time in the hospital, and only accumulate medical debt. Fortunately, Barlow has a number of esteemed musician friends who were able to lend a hand, coming together last night at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA to support the legendary writer. For those who couldn’t make it, donations are still being accepted here.Bob Weir led the festivities, singing songs and telling stories connected to his songwriting partner. He treated fans to a version of “Loose Lucy,” before Lukas Nelson would take the stage and delight with his country tunes.Weir would go on to perform some music with Jerry Harrison, including Velvet Underground’s “White Light/White Heat” and Talking Heads’ “Take Me To The River.” Watch videos of both below. Lukas Nelson wasn’t the only famous child of a musician on stage, as Sean Lennon came to play as well with his Claypool Lennon Delirium bandmates. Lennon, Les Claypool and more treated fans to a rendition of The Beatles tune “Tomorrow Never Knows,” adding some psychedelia to the event. Watch below.The legendary Ramblin’ Jack Elliott also came to play, playing some “San Francisco Bay Blues” for the crowd.With all of these esteemed performers in the building, as well as members of The String Cheese Incident, Jeff Chimenti, Steve Kimock and more, this was an unforgettable night of music.
