Rusted Root's Michael Glabicki on Jamming, Healing, and Virginia Key Grassroots Festival

Michael Glabicki is 2 and a half years old. His bloody head is on the pavement. Tiny body still. Pupils pointed skyward. Eyes empty.

The car that nearly crushed him has finally stopped moving, but the pain is a beating drum inside his skull. And the gleaming light that shines beyond his reach is beautiful.

"I was living in Fort Lauderdale," Glabicki remembers more than 40 years later. "And I've always looked upon that incident as something that really opened up some doorways."
