Abstract:

The bass player for the greatest improvisational band in American history tells the full, true story of his life, Jerry Garcia, and the Dead. Lesh first met Garcia in 1959 in the clubs of East Palo Alto, California. At Garcia's suggestion, Lesh learned to play the electric bass, joining him in a new band that blended R&B, country, and rock and roll with an experimental fervor. Now Lesh offers the first behind-the-scenes history of the Dead, from their first gigs to the legendary Acid Tests, in San Francisco's Summer of Love, at Woodstock, Monterey, Altamont, and the Pyramids.--From publisher description.
