007 CURRENT WITH THE PAST
A story of seclusion, discovery, creation, and worship.
Originally released in 1969, Dave Bixby’s Ode to Quetzacoatl is considered an underground classic in the psychedelic folk genre. With tracks such as “Drug Song” and “666″, the album remains dark, revelatory, and spiritual even in the 21st century. For years, rumors of Bixby’s disappearance and death spread amongst listeners. No one knew his story or his whereabouts or what influenced him to create an album dedicated to a Mesoamerican deity. He was a mystery.
In Episode 007, Everything Is Stories finds Dave Bixby in Northern Arizona where he shares his incredible adventures with hallucinogens in the 60s, a Christian cult in the 70s, sailing the open sea alone in the 80s, and what exactly influenced him to produce an album named after a feathered serpent.

EVERYTHING IS STORIES
An ongoing survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.
Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.
Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.
Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
