    I don't have a credit
    I don't have a credit card/debit card/checking account to order it. All my buying is done up front with cash. Sorry about that. I wish I could buy it.

    Thank you. I was looking
    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.

    also, if you can find a copy
    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.

    well
    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.

    @marye,I asked my questions
    @marye, 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.

Yes, i did notice the new date of Dec 28 - Since i did not want to pay the crazy shipping charge - I pre-ordered mine from Amazon.ca and they list it now being released for June 2013. I don't know if the Jerry site and Amazon have the same release date?

I I called the MusicToday people on the customer service line regarding the release. They said that the Garcia people moved the release date back and that it had nothing to do with them...Hmm...

Yeah, kind of annoying not to have received a notification of the changed date, especially as our credit cards have already been charged.

I've been working on the Garcia/Weir & Wasserman "deluxe box" for a few months now and proud to say I am finally holding the first finished copy in my hands. More accurately, it's actually now hanging on my wall. Proud to have been involved. Don't know how many dead.net folks ordered them, but I think you'll dig it when it shows up!

Hey Jerry Garcia fans!If any of you live in the Fairfield County area of Connecticut (or are willing to make a longer trip), a tribute band called 'The Garcia Project' will be coming to the Ridgefield Playhouse on 06/27/15 at 8pm! The show will also feature special guest, 'Acoustically Speaking'. The Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge Road in Ridgefield, CT, and tickets are $20. The show will definitely be worthwhile for any fans of Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead, or just good music in general, so try and come along - hope to see you there! http://www.ridgefieldplayhouse.org/event/garcia-project

Attention Dead Heads! Don't miss The Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead at The Ridgefield Playhouse live in HD on July 3rd at 8:00pm. Few bands in the history of music have embodied community and transported free-spirited music to the masses, like Grateful Dead. Furthermore, no fan base bears resemblance to the determined and, above all, dedicated DeadHeads.

I remember back in the early eighties, catching Jerry and Bobby on the David Lettermen Show. They played a couple of tunes, which one of them was "Friend of the Devil".Then David was interviewing Jerry, and asked Him why He had the nickname Captain Trips! Jerry immediately replied well it certainly fits or pretty much close to that response.I thought that to be very amusing at that time and never forgot that particular segment.

My favorites were The Alligator, a Strat that he played in 71,72. My other 2 are the Travis Bean guitar that He played in 76 and a lot of 77. And The Wolf was probably my favorite , He played it alot in the 70s.

Some cool post from your fans:Your NO#1 fan Dawn Gaudio, He sang in the cracked and reedy voice that made him sometimes sound on the verge of tears. His idea of stagecraft was to stand stock-still and utter not a word to the delirious multitudes who adored him. And yet he was a riveting figure onstage, a benevolent Buddha whose face beamed with merriment and sometimes sorrow as crystalline notes floated and soared and burst from the custom-made guitar that he seemed to play not with his hands, but his heart. "For me," Garcia once said about the music he performed for over 30 years as leader of the Grateful Dead, "it's always emotional." "Grateful words from Ron Yates. (~);-) "He had the unique ability get out of his own way, to some how channel the collective energy of the audience and turn it into such beautiful music, which would drive the audience into creating the energy that he would...and on and on, it was a dynamo Definition: DYNAMO A dynamo is an electrical generator that produces direct current with the use of a commutator. He was the communicator/commutator and he knew that the music played the band...and the band, were like a shoal of fish, like a flock of birds, like a swarm of bees and he would play with them, around them, through them, it was magic and the ones who really took that journey with him...they know what I'm talking about and they don't need to be told to 'shut up and dance' they just did....and MAN was it fun and beautiful and BOY do we miss HIM!!?"

I was pitching baseballs to 5 kids on a ball diamond in Ely, MN when a guy drove by in a pick-up, and yelled out the window, "Hey, Jerry died..." 21 years later, we all miss him dearly. R.I.P. Jerry Today's Grateful Dead history feature on SiriusXM is from 9/3/72 (He's Gone > The Other One) ironically my 1st show! How about that?!

so I didn't go in to the office, but as soon as I started the car, they were playing sad Dead tunes on the radio, and the news was not far behind. After giving it some thought, I decided to drive over to the peninsula anyway, only to arrive at my lunch date's office to find that he was not there, because his wife was giving birth to their latest kid.

originally posted at sunshinedaydreamers.com by Ozark Matt http://sunshinedaydreamers.com/jerry-garcia-john-mayer-red-gibson-sg-gu… –photo by Jim Laverty Jerry Garcia playing his red Gibson SG with partially obscured American flag sticker during an outdoor concert in the quadrangle of Washington University Saint Louis on April 17, 1969. Wearing the away jersey of the Montreal Canadians sans front logo, Jerry played songs like ‘Morning Dew’ to a crowd of college kids on the same guitar that laid down the classic album ‘Live Dead’. Gibson originally chose the SG model (solid guitar) to represent Les Paul before he rejected the style for his iconic namesake as both guitars quickly solidified their position in Rock history. The same night the Grateful Dead played Washington University Saint Louis in the spring of 1969 and Jerry chose to wear the Montreal Canadians red away hockey jersey, the Montreal Canadians were playing the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Playoffs; a Stanley Cup Playoff post season they would eventually win. Did Jerry magic aide Les Habs in hoisting Lord Stanley’s appointed trophy of the NHL’s annual champions? Maybe, except that night the Canadians lost at the Garden 5 – 0, but they went on to, strangely enough, sweep the St. Louis Blues and finish their winning season in the Blue Note’s old barn and once great rock venue The Arena two weeks later. deadwustlquad41769 The photograph Jim Laverty captured of Jerry playing the red Gibson SG, a guitar he often played from 1968 through 1970 (including Woodstock), is notable in its candor and proximity of subject. This particular image shows Jerry in a buoyant moment on-stage at a college where the R.O.T.C. building was occupied and eventually burned to the ground as Nixon began implementing his “secret” solution to Vietnam by dropping more bombs on neighboring Cambodia than all the ordinance used on Germany in the last war that mattered. He seems quite at home playing in a hockey jersey during turbulent times, times needing music and bands like the Grateful Dead. deadcompany2016indiana115 –photo by Ozark Matt John Mayer playing his red 2013 issue ‘1961 Les Paul Tribute’ Gibson SG during ‘St. Stephen’ in Noblesville, Indiana at the famed outdoor amphitheater Klipsch Music Center on June 17, 2016. Mayer played his red Gibson SG one song the entire tour. John Mayer’s two primary guitars on tour are his golden PRS Super Eagle, usually reserved for first set and encore performances, and his brilliant Blue Eagle by PRS, played during Dead & Company’s second set portions of their live shows, but for one song the entire tour, in a gesture to even further enhance the performance of St. Stephen, he chose an iconic guitar outside of his regular Dead & Company instrument lineup. Made of mahogany with a fret-board of rosewood, the guitar cut through the summer evening air like a sonic laser as the crowd’s energy peaked. deadcompany2016indiana118 -photo by Ozark Matt The high-gloss Heritage Cherry finish with hand sprayed nitro-cellulose beamed in the glow of rock concert lights as the Tune-o-matic bridge, Sideways Vibrato, and vintage style tuners with pearloid buttons popped and sparkled in celebration of finally contributing onstage. A red electric guitar was a unicorn caught wild on summer tour, frozen forever in radiant time. videos highlighting Jerry’s Red Gibson SG -Ozark Matt

Almost too shy to love him. He was shy, real. That's why we loved him. He said that the audience was like a flower. All shy with heads down. A while after stranger met stranger our heads would relax and start to raise up smiling like a flower blooming. Still missing the man. <3

If you're going, and that would be a good thing, the organizers have sent out a bulletin that BART is doing various repairs that will cause Balboa Park, Glen Park and Daly City stations to be closed today. So while normally it would be a great option to take BART, today not so much. Check the Jerry Day site for more. (Jerryday.org)

Garcia was a genius. That is no exaggeration...thank goodnesss/God/god for digital media so that all can appreciate. listening to legion of mary 5/21/75...my first immersion in all things dead was about a month earlier in D.C. I almost didn't go: $6 was a tall order for a college kid back then; didn't think I'd like RnR with a saxophone; was just getting into the dead, but wasn't sure about this "offshoot". Well, I went. Unbelievable, I guess you could say it changed everything.
