The Grateful Dead: Influences and Influencers


Perhaps you’re interested in learning more about Half Century Phenomenon The Grateful Dead?

I remember several Los Angeles nurses I worked with who dropped everything and went to San Francisco just to BE THERE in the immediate aftermath of Jerry Garcia’s death. The Dead means a lot to a lot of people.

On the net.cultural and intellectual property rights tip – The Dead were pioneers of allowing people to record their concerts and share them with each other decades before Napster existed.

Fascinating band and definitely deserve full attention in your 20th Century Music Appreciation Studies.
