  • From the very beginning of the Chris Robinson Band, the main thing is that I always want to be confident about the material we present. At the same time, Ive always been very anti-corporate throughout my entire career. I think that as we live in this day and age, music has become even more status-driven, and there is a lot of pretense about it. People like to talk up the role of the artist or the musi-cian, but it doesnt really add up with their actions and/or their work. So for me, the real quandary regarding the Chris Robinson Brotherhood was that I didnt want to do it in any way that I would have done it before. I didnt want to start with a record deal, but if thats the case, how do you get your music out there? What do you do? So I looked at the Grateful Dead world, and being part of the Grateful Dead family has had a big influence on me. I was like, OK, we need to start our mythology now. Were
