One of the founding members of the band the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia became the lead guitarist and lead singer, however he did not like that role. He wanted the band to be democratic, with everyone having a say into what the band did.

With the death of Jerry Garcia on August 9, 1995, the band members felt that they could not continue without Jerry, and out of respect for him, dissolved the band. In 1994, members of the band had been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Grateful Dead received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys in 2007.

Available in both library and paperback editions, this title is a great read for deadheads.
