Abstract:

"Captain Trips depicts the life, work, and philosophy of this nonconformist rock legend, counterculture hero, and symbol of the Sixties. It contains exclusive interviews with Phil Lesh, David Nelson, Rock Scully, Jorma Kaukonen, Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia (Jerry's second wife and perhaps closest friend), Jerry himself, and many others. As lead guitarist of the Dead, Garcia has played before crowds exceeding half a million fans, performed before the Great Pyramid, toured around the world, and made a fortune from royalties and ticket sales. He has been praised as a musical innovator who has stretched the boundaries of rock 'n' roll. He has also been busted for drugs three times - as many times as he's been married. He has seen tragedy in the deaths of his father, his mother, and three of his bandmates - one of whom died from drink, one from drugs, and one in a terrible crash - and has been perilously close to death himself.

Through it all, Garcia has maintained the approach to life he developed in the Haight-Ashbury of the 1960s. He's doing his part to make the world a better place by performing the best he can, as often as he can, and sharing the good times he creates with as many people as possible."--Jacket.
