About this product
- DescriptionAs a manager for the Grateful Dead, Rock Scully was with the band from its early days in San Francisco to the years it spent touring the globe as one of the most enduring legends in music history. In Living with the Dead , Scully gives a complete account of his outrageous experiences with the band, during years that saw the Grateful Dead transform from a folksy revivalist band to psychedelic explorers of outer space. In addition to close-up portraits of band members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Pigpen, Phil Lesh, Micky Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, Scully brings into the story many of the people the Dead encountered in their journeys across America's musical landscape, including Ken Kesey, Janis Joplin, Etta James, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and the Jefferson Airplane. Scully tells the story of the band with genuine feeling; the tour disasters, acid trips, and buruts, but most importantly the exaltation of delivering fantastic music.
- Author BiographyRock Scully worked for the Grateful Dead for twenty years and lives in Marino del Rey, California. David Dalton, co-author of Faithfull: An Autobiography and Rock 100 (both published by Cooper Square Press), lives in Delhi, New York.
