About this item

Shot on an early digital camera by a fan living out of his car, this paean to the late '60s counter-culture legend Jerry Garcia began in May of 1995, just three months prior to his death. The guitarist and frontman for the Grateful Dead for over 30 years, Jerry spearheaded a lasting movement predicated on love, peace, and community, which is in evidence here as legions of fans flock to the shows on what would be the Dead's final tour. Aging hippies whose lifestyles were shaped by the era of free love join together with a new generation of Deadheads, who have chosen to carry on the values of the 60's. But there is also dissent among the crowds, and as the number of followers swell as the tour moves east, riots begin and divide the ranks of the faithful. Ultimately, however, the debates among the various factions of Heads come screeching to a halt as their leader unexpectedly passes away. Exuberance turns to mourning as millions turn their attentions to commemorating one of the most-loved figures of recent American history. Interviews with Babatunde Olatunji, Merl Saunders, Wavy Gravy, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and others, illuminate the influence and inspirational force wielded by the almost-mythical Jerry Garcia.
