Arizona Dreams: The Parallel World of the Meat Puppets

Dave DiMartino, Musician, November 1995

FLASHBACK, 1994: It's mid-morning in Vancouver, and the sun shines brightly over the crisp, clear October sky. Not that you'd notice, if you were Curt Kirkwood.

Every time we reach a new plateau, we seem to find the ether in it."
