An Alternate History of the Grateful Dead

It's a tall order to take on writing up any year in Grateful Dead history, but to attempt to tell their complete story...godspeed! We called UC Santa Cruz Grateful Dead Archivist Nicholas Meriwether to task for this one and the result is either the shortest book or the longest liner notes you'll find on the Dead. Here he gives us a little sneak peak at the process and a surprising discovery.
Give us a little background on how you got into the Grateful Dead and beyond that, the business of the Grateful Dead.
