Meeting Planner Sunday Night Music Club – Special Edition, Owsley Stanley

RIP Owsley Stanley who died in an automobile accident in Australia yesterday. Most of you have never heard of him but you know what he has created… both legal and illegal. Here is a little snip from Wikipedia:

Between 1965 and 1967 he produced more than 1.25 million doses of LSD—a catalyst for the emergence of the hippie movement during the Summer of Love  in the Haight-Ashbury  area, which one historian of that movement, Charles Perry, has described as “one big LSD party.” Stanley was also an accomplished sound engineer, and the longtime sound man and financier for psychedelic rock  band the Grateful Dead.

Stanley designed some of the first high-fidelity sound systems for rock music, culminating in the “Wall of Sound” electrical amplification system used by the Grateful Dead in their live shows, at the time a highly innovative feat of engineering. He was involved with the founding of high-end musical instrument maker Alembic Inc and concert sound equipment manufacturer Meyer Sound.

Without further ado – The Grateful Dead (one of my favorite bands), Ripple:
