The GRATEFUL DEAD
One of the best jam bands to ever exist
And 50 years later they are still rocking!
This is a picture of the Steal Your Face symbol which was first featured on thier 1976 album and soon became known as the "Stealie" - Here are a couple reasons why I like them:
Between the years of 1980 - 1990, their band members included
- Their songs go on for a very long time, sometimes as much as 10 or 20 minutes for one song
- Their experiemental jam band characteristics make for a unique sound
- They are ~70 years old and still doing what they love - the ones that are alive
- Their followers/fans are called "Dead Heads"
You can find almost all of their shows in this archive, which provides recordings for just about every live show they played here.
- Jerry Garcia
- Bob Weir
- Phil Lesh
- Brent Mydland
- Mickey Hart
- Bill Kreutzmann
