Concert impresario Bill Graham, the namesake of this website, was once referred to as a mix between Mother Theresa and Al Capone. In this 1989 interview with Scott Muni, there is only evidence of the former. The two chat almost entirely about 1967's Human Be-In, an event that helped to shape and define the San Francisco scene and the Summer of Love.
