Thank you. I was looking online to see if one of my local bookstores carries Desolate Angel, and I couldn't locate being in one of the local stores, but I believe it might be available online which I would need to pay in person, or unless someone is going to offer on here without charging me which I know that won't happen? I don't know where to find a copy. We have Barnes and Noble out here. We might have other stores, but I don't think so. I live in Bethlehem, PA.
Maybe even before you read McNally's GD book, read his Kerouac book, Desolate Angel. Good for understanding some of the roots of all this.
I'd get a copy of the Garcia: A Signpost to New Space book, which is an early-'70s Rolling Stone interview with embellishments, and is still kinda THE interview. Jerry just casually tosses off all kinds of amazing stuff. When I first found it it totally gave me sleepless nights, in a good way.
I asked my questions over at Lossless Legs as well. I purchased An American Life, and I like it so far. After I'm done reading that book, would you suggest for me to read A Long Strange Trip by Dennis McNally, and after that book would you suggest for me to read another book, and what book would that be? Or would it be at that point it's up to me to decide? I like getting recommendations from other people such as you and others.
Don't cry over what we lost; smile because it happened.
My tears are not for you, they are for me as i remember.......Happy 70th Jerry! We still miss you so

marye, sounds good!
Bob Weir gathers a whole bunch of musicians at TRI to celebrate Jerry's 70th birthday, and the whole thing streams live. Get the details here.
We'll have lots of coverage after the fact, but hey, you can check it out for yourself too!
Thank you very much for that info!
