"There were always musicians that would jam around our house, and that's where it all started for us."

Ben's Take

"Alex is my brother and he's the banjo player in The Brothers Comatose. We lived together in a house on Haight Street, which is famous for the Grateful Dead and all those people back in the day. When you walk down the street, you get offered weed and all sorts of psychedelic drugs all the time. 

So I'd say go to Haight Street, buy weed off of some sketchy dude, and then go into Golden Gate Park towards Hippy Hill and hangout at the drum circle for a while, just to watch what is going on. The hippy ethos still lives on in that bubble around Haight Street and Golden Gate Park."
