Features
The Grateful Dead FAQ by : Tony Sclafani


The Grateful Dead rose out of San Francisco's '60s underground rock scene with an unprecedented sound and image. Its members; steeped in rock; folk; classical; and blues; their instrumental prowess; and their refusal to bow to commercial conventions helped originate jam band music. Unapologetic in its advocacy of drug use as a means toward mind expansion; the Dead helped catapult psychedelic music. After performing at the Monterey International Pop Festival and Woodstock; the group became iconic without ever scoring a hit single. A large; devoted fan base – “Deadheads” – began to follow the band everywhere. The group suffered a tragedy when bandleader Jerry Garcia slipped into a coma in 1986; but returned the next year with a top-selling album and surprise hit single; “Touch of Grey.” By 1993; the Dead was the top-grossing live act in the United States. The band ended when Garcia died in 1995; but the music lives on with a stream of live releases.

In Grateful Dead FAQ; Tony Sclafani examines the band's impact and influence on rock music and pop culture. This book ventures into unexplored areas and features a host of rare images; making it a must-have for both Deadheads and casual fans.
