Bob Weir was a founding member of The Grateful Dead. As one of the group's two primary songwriters and guitarists, he was an instrumental part of shaping their sound.

Today, he runs a recording studio and tours under several different guises. He's bringing his Bob Weir Solo Acoustic tour to Tucson February 27.

Contributor Jake Feinberg talked with Weir about his music, past present and future.
