"It might have been partly because of the LSD or the personal chemistry of everyone involved, and the times. We picked up a lot from those guys. Particularly from Cassady. He was able to drive 50 or 60 miles an hour through downtown rush-hour traffic, he could see around corners — I don’t know how to better describe it. That’s useful if you’re playing improvisational music; you can build those skills to see around corners, ‘cause there are plenty of corners that come up. We gleaned that kind of approach from Cassady." - bob weir
