When Jerry Garcia died in 1995, people around the world mourned his death. As the lead singer and spiritual centre of the travelling band the Grateful Dead, Garcia commanded a large and loyal following. This book, with its many striking photographs and illustrations and with its writings by some of rock journalism’s biggest names, is a wonderful and lasting testament to one of rock music’s greatest stars. Compiled by the editors of Rolling Stone magazine, Garcia includes writings by Ken Kesey, Anthony DeCurtis, Mikal Gilmore, Robert Hunter, and Jann Wenner, as well as photographs and drawings by, among others, Annie Leibovitz, Al Hirschfeld, R. Crumb, and Allen Ginsburg.
