Synopsis

Photographer and Grateful Dead insider Rosie McGee tells
dozens of previously-untold stories of living, traveling and working with the
Dead during their first decade as a band. The book is illustrated with 200 of
her rare and candid photographs, many never seen in print before.

 

Not just for Deadheads or baby boomers--this book is for
anyone seeking a woman's intimate account of the San Francisco rock music
community in the Sixties, rare in a field of such books most often written by
men.



Included are firsthand stories of Autumn Records; The Matrix nightclub; the
Acid Tests; Olompali; life in the Haight-Ashbury; the Human Be-In; the Grateful
Dead (and the author's) bust at 710 Ashbury; New York, Toronto and Montreal
with the Dead and Jefferson Airplane; Monterey Pop; Altamont; the Dead's Europe
'72 tour; and encounters with individuals as diverse as Tom Donahue, Phil
Spector, Lenny Bruce, Janis Joplin, Owsley Stanley, Timothy Leary, Jesse Colin
Young, Julie Christie and others. The list goes on.
