Today's special guest on Silver Nine Volt Heart is Greg Anton, drummer and co-founder of the San Francisco musical institution Zero, which began in Marin County in the early 1980s. Zero released more than eight albums from 1987 to 2002 and played more than 1,300 concerts. In addition to Greg, and guitarist Steve Kimock, the musicians who joined in the adventuresome and spirited musical journey were a who's who of the Bay Area live music experience, including John Cipollina, Banana, and legendary Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter.
Zero recently released Naught Again, a live album recorded in 1992 at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. The band will return to the venue this fall to celebrate the release and to fire up the epic sounds of Zero in San Francisco 30 years later. We will also talk with Greg about his new album, StarFire.
Greg has also produced music for film, TV and theater; co-written 27 songs with Grateful Dead lyricist Hunter; and wrote the critically acclaimed rock ‘n' roll novel Face the Music.
