The Jack Casady Interview

I've been a Jefferson Airplane fan for as long as I loved rock-n-roll. I was much less of a Hot Tuna fan in their mid-'70s heyday because I was exploring other music and somewhat put off by their enthusiastically vocal fans. As I got older, I discovered the joys of acoustic Hot Tuna.

With that preamble, I present an interview I did with bassist Jack Casady a few days ago. Electric Hot Tuna will be at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester tonight, and at the Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue on Sunday.
