Bill Walton loves his music. And the former UCLA star and NBA great especially adores the Grateful Dead.
On New Year's Eve, an incarnation of the band, Dead & Co., played the Fabulous Forum, once the home of the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers.
And it was showtime for Walton.
It would be hard to miss a 6-foot-11 person to start, but throw in some roses, a white beard and a light saber and ... well you will get the picture by checking him out.
