Overview

In 1965, the Grateful Dead came to life in the heart of San Francisco’s 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.

    A knowledge of history- Rock style.

    I recently gave this book as a gift and let me tell you the birthday lady that received this book is one MAJOR Grateful Dead fan.

    When I look into the book, I couldn't believe what all it contained-
    Starting from 001 to the end of 365, every page gave details to when the band was formed from it's orginal birth place to the the year '08 with the remaining Grateful Dead memebers.

    Not only that's it detailed with the information, but also with the pictures that goes along with all the years.

    A true collection for the fans of the band.
