Mickey’s Spin

What are we to make of this?

A Statement From Mickey About Archive.org

The last several days have been a whirlwind of activity and commentary regarding the Grateful Dead and archive.org. I am posting this message due to the fact that despite news stories to the contrary, I have been one of the earliest backers of the taping and sharing of Grateful Dead music. I fully support the position taken by Phil in his message and always have. Being a field recordist myself, I stand united with the taper community and always will notwithstanding anything in the media to the contrary. Efforts have been made by Grateful Dead Productions and archive.org to rectify the situation and I hope our loyal fans, friends and family will continue to enjoy and participate in Grateful Dead music.

Sounds like spin to me. What about the 3-to-1 vote? What about Barlow naming names? “Weir, Hart and Kreutzmann,” he said.
