Remembering Jerry, 20 Years Gone
Written by tessatowne on August 9, 2015
It’s the twentieth anniversary of the death of Jerry Garcia, the leading light of the good old Grateful Dead. We miss him still…
Ultimate Classic Rock offers a great video tribute showing the many chapters of Garcia’s long, but still too short for our liking, strange trip. An excerpt offers some comfort:
Decades after his passing, Jerry Garcia’s music lives on. His former bandmates all continue to play with their own projects; others continue to cover Garcia’s music, applying his unique template to their own work. For a lot of musicians, Jerry’s music is akin to an instruction booklet – or at the very least, a great motivator.
Take a look at UCR’s selected clips and take heart in the knowledge that the music never stops. And enjoy a couple we found, a Jerry Garcia unedited interview from the 1995 Prime Time Entertainment Network miniseries “The History of Rock ‘n Roll” and some sweet jams from 1978.
