    Grateful Dead Hour no.1467

    Week of October 31, 2016

    Featuring Steven Marcus’ wonderful 1986 interview with Jerry Garcia.

    If you're familiar with the history of the Grateful Dead you're probably aware that Jerry was hospitalized in July of 1986 with complications from diabetes and other issues. He was out of commission for several months, during which the community did various things to keep ourselves in touch. One of them was an event called Night of the Living Deadheads, held at a club in San Francisco. Steven Marcus, the head of the Grateful Dead Ticket office, invited Jerry to join him for a videotaped conversation to be played at the gathering. I was recruited to operate the camera. Here is that conversation, recorded in October of 1986 and edited to remove some stuff that was of only short-term interest.

    Enjoy!

would love to hear more about this "Night of the Living Deadheads" event. Oddly enough this GDHour was featured on the Week of Oct 31, 2016. I remember wearing this tee shirt the night of Halloween last year haha , the question about Dylan, Petty, and Dead tour. Garcia was asked, "how did it go for you, what were the highlights? Garcia responds ~ "well I was dying ~ chuckle chuckle
