Writing with you-are-there immediacy, he brings the Dead to life as never before, recounting the songs and solos, highs and hijinks, the battles and brouhahas that made the group a phenomenon for 30 years. of photos.

The book itself is great, lively and full of amazing stories so far… unfortunately who ever edited it originally or for the electronic transfer over to the nook ebook format, has the skills of a….. well, actually they are unskilled. My head hurts from the puzzle it is to guess what many of the words in this book are supposed to be… please take some responsibility at the editing office and do your job. that being said, I still love the book!Was this review helpful?

Rock Scully was there from the beginning and he holds nothing back. He had nothing to lose in writing this book. Scully happened to run into his former very close friend Jerry Garcia in 1992. He mentioned that he was working on book about managing the band. Garcia asked if he would just be honest in doing so. I feel he was Dead honest.Was this review helpful?
