Summary

Summary

Over three years after cofounder Jerry Garcia's death, the Grateful Dead continues to be one of the world's most popular rock bands. While much has been written about the group over the last three decades, the tales behind the Grateful Dead's songs have never been fully examined. This book takes a song-by-song look at this legendary band. Find out what historical incidents and characters led to such classics as New Speedway Boogie," "Truckin'," and "Casey Jones." Because not all Grateful Dead tunes appeared on their studio albums, this volume also includes a chapter with fan favorites the band played but never officially released, including "Looks Like Rain," "Lazy Lightning," and "Mexicali Blues.""
