Deadheads: Stories From Fellow Artists, Friends, and Followers of the Grateful Dead by Linda Kelly (Carol Publishing Corp. 1995)(780.92). This is a remarkable collection of memories and stories about life around the Grateful Dead by the artists, cooks, drivers, Deadheads, and others who knew the band best. My rating: 7/10, finished 1996.

I read this back in my following Phish days and loved it. I love Deaheads. I love stories about them. If Jerry Garcia wouldn't have died when I was 12 I would have definitly followed the Grateful Dead.

Though I was never able to see the Dead in concert I have loved their music since I was young. This book is an interesting way to connect to those sights and sounds and experiences.
