You’ve called them a ‘magic band’. What’s the criterion?

David Crosby: Magic is doin’ it so well that you get up beyond mechanical levels. Magic is making people feel good and stuff. Magic is, if you are high on psychedelics, having a great big love beast crawl out of your amplifiers and eat the audience. I don’t know what it is man. Like, they’re magic. Something happens when the Dead gets on that don’t happen when Percy Faith gets it on.
