Documentary Explores Life Of Grateful Dead's "Other One"

Documentarian Mike Fleiss admits in Rolling Stone magazine that he was nervous about breaking the news to Grateful Dead co-founder Bob Weir that he wanted to title the film he was making about the singer-songwriter The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip of Bob Weir. The filmmaker behind God Bless Ozzie Osbourne worried that suggesting Weir was second to the late Jerry Garcia might upset his subject, hurt his feelings or otherwise harsh his mellow. Nothing doing. Weir immediately embraced the title, and the documentary, which is expecting a release date soon, opened to rave reviews in April at the Tribeca Film Festival. Bob Weir and RatDog make their Ravinia debut on Aug. 31, joined by Dwight Yoakam.
