Fresh off Dead & Company tour, bassist Oteil Burbridge is still feeling the spiritual benefits of joining the never-ending tribe of the Grateful Dead. Fans most likely have some questions built up for Burbridge, and he’s now giving them the chance to ask them. Today on Reddit, Oteil Burbridge will host an “AMA” session on the Grateful Dead subreddit. The official time for the “Ask Me Anything” session is 3:00PM ET.Having taken his emotions to social media accounts since the inception of Dead & Company, it’s been a wild ride for fans of the O-Zone to see him blossom in so many directions. Burbridge sang three tunes throughout the 2017 Summer Dead & Company tour, which lasted from the end of may through the first of July, drew in nearly 500,000 fans and consisted of 20 concerts, 10 of which were sold out shows, in 15 cities, while simultaneously expanding his Grateful Dead bass catalog and proving his indispensable role to the whole nature along the way.Dead & Company Recaps Tour Success, Sets Attendance Record for Wrigley FieldThe efforts of the “Let Oteil Sing” campaign served with a dual purpose to raise money for the Gorilla Doctors, a non-profit organization saving wild gorillas–selected by Burbridge himself.
