Tom Davis (1952-2012)

Very sorry to learn of Tom Davis’ passing yesterday. He was 59.

I met Tom and interviewed him the spring of 2009 when he was promoting his very funny memoir, Thirty-Nine Years of Short-Term Memory Loss. The 66-minute interview is posted here.

I’m at the Gathering of the Vibes this weekend. Tom came to the 2009 GOTV as my guest, and I had the pleasure of organizing a reunion with Donna Jean Godchaux; the two were friends when she was a member of the Grateful Dead. I also introduced Tom to members of the Dark Star Orchestra; the band dedicated “Bird Song” to Tom in last night’s performance.
