April Fools! from Grateful Dead (1980)
On April Fool’s Day 35 years ago, Grateful Dead took the stage at Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ, but, this time, the band members all took different instruments. In their unusual configuration, they played “The Promised Land.” When they finished playing the members each returned to their respectful instruments and… played “The Promised Land” once again! (Audio of the show can be found here on Archive.com)
Joni Mitchell (she’s okay!)
Joni Mitchell had recently been hospitalized after having been found unconscious in her home. She is currently in intensive care and undergoing tests.
