The Grateful Dead were unlike any other band in the world. They were a creative and passionate musical force that toured continuously. Jerry Garcia was a central figure of the Dead and more importantly of the Sixties generation. Blair Jackson’s book Garcia is a lively portrait of a man who witnessed it all, from Bob Dylan’s first electric gig to Ken Kesey’s acid bus and Woodstock. Jackson, who had known Garcia for decades and had covered the Dead, writes of the musical genius, his strength as a songwriter and finally as a man coping with his own addictions and philosophies. With more than 40 photographs this full biography will captivate readers on many different levels.
