Dark Star: An Oral Biography of Jerry Garcia

by

Dark Star: An Oral Biography of Jerry Garcia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than thirty years, Jerry Garcia was the musical and spiritual center of the Grateful Dead, one of the most popular rock bands of all time. In Dark Star, the first biography of Garcia published since his death, Garcia is remembered by those who knew him best. Together, they explore his remarkable life: his childhood in San Francisco, the formation of his musical identity, the Dead's road to rock stardom, and his final, crushing addiction to heroin. Interviews with Jerry's wives and lovers, family members, close friends, musical partners, and cultural cohorts create a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a rock and roll icon and the price of fame.

Review:

"[A] must-buy for mourning Deadheads...should also interest casual fans (if there are any), as well as those curious about the San Francisco 1960s scene or about the punishing coincidence of a brilliant but vulnerable artist and an extraordinary time." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[R]eaders will finish with a better understanding of this charismatic musician." Library Journal

Synopsis:

A national bestseller in hardcover, this intimate and revealing portrait of the beloved lead singer of the Grateful Dead presents the musician, the icon, and the man in the words of those who knew him best. Photos.
