In a revelation that could shake the core of our society, GRATEFUL DEAD drummer MICKEY HART gave a backstage interview to GARY LAMBERT, co-host of SIRIUS XM’s Grateful Dead channel talk show, "Tales from the Golden Road," in which he recounted a recent on-stage appearance by TIPPER GORE, wife of former VP AL GORE.
Right before the band launched into the set-closing "Sugar Magnolia," GORE came on stage and played the drums. "TIPPER GORE is a good drummer," HART said. "I've known TIPPER for years and she’s a real enthusiast. She’s got the spirit.TIPPER’s slammin. After about a minute or two, she got into it. I had to keep up with her. She was driving the train."
