"This picture was taken inside the latest iteration of Furthur, Ken's
Bus, at Hempfest in Oregon, I think it was 1998. We
did back to back shows on Saturday night. I do a show on the life of
Bob Marley, and I play a bunch of unreleased videos and tell his life
story in between the clips. Then Ken Babbs and Ken Kesey and their
cohorts came out in various wild costumes, and they had signs that
said,"Support the right of bozos to bear arms," something like
that...the picture itself was taken that afternoon, aboard the bus and
that was the afternoon that he gave me a couple of big buttons. "Take Me Furthur"
"Are You On The Bus Or Off The Bus"...I treasure those as if they were
rare icons. But he wasn't the most friendly person. He seemed very
suspicious of almost everybody. I had hoped to engage him in some
conversations about Marley, but beyond saying that he liked his music he
didn't have anything else he wanted to say about that. But I just felt
so honored to meet him. One of the greatest writers of our generation.
One of the best freaks we've ever had." - Roger Steffens
