Inhaltsangabe: Sean Piccoli reaches back to the band''s gene sis and examines every step along the way to infamy as one o f the most successful touring bands in rock history. '
From Booklist: Gr. 7^-9. This look at the Grateful Dead is as much a portrait of an era as of the legendary band. Better written than many series biographies, the book will capture the attention of Deadheads as well as young people more casually interested in rock. Piccoli's focus is often Jerry Garcia, but he also introduces the other band members and vividly describes life in San Francisco at the time the band was being formed. Piccoli doesn't pull any punches about the band's drug use; in fact, one of the most interesting parts of the book is Piccoli's discussion of the evolution of LSD, first used in experiments by the U.S. military (which is where author Ken Kesey first got the drug). He also makes it clear that Garcia's early death was a cumulative result of years of drug use. Various (if innocuous) antidrug messages by other band members are worked into the text. The black-and-white photos are unfailingly interesting, but the best part of the art is the reproductions of Stanley Mouse's skull-and-roses designs that are synonymous with the Dead. One factual (and hilarious) error--Piccoli refers to The Donna Reed Show as The Donna Mills Show. Discography and chronology appended. Ilene Cooper
