Wes Freed interview has a great interview with Drive-By Truckers illustrator Wes Freed, and makes some very interesting connections between the Truckers and the Grateful Dead...
The photo to the right is a special Gretsch acoustic customized and painted by Freed and then signed by all the Drive-By Truckers. Freed was kind enough to donate his work to us as a fundraiser via Gretsch's Guitar Art Program.

Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have released the results of a study where doctors prescribed "doses" of exercise to patients who were not responding to (anti-depressant) medication alone.

“Evidence is accumulating that exercise may be an effective treatment for depressed patients who are receptive to exercise as a possible treatment and who are able to safely engage in exercise,” said James A. Blumenthal, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University.
