Grateful Dead 365 (365)by Holly George Warren
Synopses & Reviews
In 1965, the Grateful Dead came to life in the heart of San Franciscos hippie counterculture. Founding members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron Pigpen” McKernan, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann (and soon after, Mickey Hart) created a unique blend of improvisational rock, folk, blues, and psychedelia, and the Dead went on to become one of the greatest jam bands of all time, releasing more than ten studio albums and touring constantly for legions of Deadheads.
In Grateful Dead 365, five decades of intimate portraits, candid backstage shots, and colorful performance images take readers on the bands remarkable journey from the mid-sixties to the twenty-first century. Accompanied by the bands distinctive graphics, these photographs capture memorable moments, including the bands trip to the Great Pyramid of Egypt; scenes with colorful, trippy Deadheads; and tributes to Garcia. Written by award-winning music writer, Holly George-Warren, Grateful Dead 365 celebrates the evolution of one of the worlds most beloved bands.
