NEWSDAY missed Mickey Hart, who was from Long Island, ok - Brooklyn. Mickey played percussion in the Air Force Band before relocating to the west coast and while working in a music store he hooked up with another drummer named Bill Kreutzman who came in to buy some drum equipment. Hart became the second drummer in the Grateful Dead. Most people think that the Grateful Dead were all from San Francisco. They were except for Mickey Hart.

Mickey went on to become a musicologist and has written books about drumming and gone all over the world and done field recordings of drummers from different cultures. He sponsers something called Camp Drum for youngsters.

He continues to perform with other musicians after his 30 year career with the Grateful Dead and other side group projects.
