Author John Clark, who grew up with Garcia in San Francisco, reveals for the first time many experiences relevant not only to diehard 'Dead Head' fans, but to anyone intrigued with the turbulent culture of rock music and motorcycle gangs from the 1960s on. Among the questions Clark tackles are how he and Garcia first met outlaw bikers, and how Garcia conceived of the Grateful Dead. Viewable for the first time are several original photos of Jerry Garcia.

Praise for the book's realism comes from those close to the action. Jerry Garcia's brother Cliff says it is 'the best book I have read about my Brother.' And according to Filthy Phil, Former President of Frisco Hell's Angels, 'Dead Angel is the best I have read about the Hell's Angels. It is the truth.'

About the Author

I have written about my boyhood friend, Jerry Garcia, and my "encounter." My name is John Clark. While growing up in San Francisco, I was fortunate enough to be Jerry Garcia's best friend. We grew up on the same block, Harrington St., where we met at ages 5 and 6 years old. Jerry and I stayed in touch until his untimely death in 1995. Dead Angel shows a side of Jerry that very few people knew and most of his fans would like to know. He was a kind, gentle child, not the crazed drug addict as so many persons portrayed him to be. I know that many of his fans, world-wide, will enjoy reading about his early years as evidenced by the people who have already read my book of him so far
