Q What might people who know you only in your professional capacity
be most surprised to learn about you?
ENGHAUSER I’m pretty much an
open book. What you see is what you
get. I’m a bit of a music fan with wide
tastes. I’ve been a Deadhead since
high school, and I’ve seen different
iterations of the band play maybe 20
or 25 times.
But my son loves heavy metal and
has taken me to a couple of shows.
I also have singers ranging from
Eminem to Frank Sinatra on my
playlists. So, going from a mosh
pit at a metal show to dancing at a
Dead show is a pretty wide range.
Q I would think so. Did you follow The Grateful Dead around when
you were young?

cities a couple different summers.
