Seth and Rob sit down with guitarist Tom Hamilton and discuss his work with Brothers Past, American Babies, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Billy and The Kids and other groups. Tom explains the various ways some of these bands approach Grateful Dead music, and relates his experiences working with the surviving members of The Grateful Dead. Tom also reveals that Louis CKs eulogy of Robin Williams served as an influence for the creation of what would become the American Babies' fantastic new cd, "An Epic Battle Between Light & Dark." Also discussed are Tom's experience with depression, how he feels stand up comedians are "today's Shakespeare," how his improvisational goal is to compose new and great songs on the spot and his grossly underappreciated/slightly dysfunctional band, Brothers Past. Sports fans might enjoy the comparisons between athletic and musical teamwork and fans of obscenity will surely be delighted by the various uses of the f-word. Tom also takes us to the early days of Joe Russo's Almost Dead and what it's like playing in a band with the drummer serving as a point man. He also performs his first-ever a solo reading of "Bring It In Close" from the aforementioned American Babies release, "An Epic Battle Between Light & Dark."
