More Jerry, Still Wavy
Dave and Jerry
In commemoration of Jerry Garcia’s August 1 birthday, the Relix.com video blog has presented a variety of clips over the course of the week. Today the series wraps up with a look at the music of the Grateful Dead. Thursday focused on comedy clips (Al Franken and David Letterman) while Wednesday presented the guitarist in contexts outside of his own groups. Tuesday saw Garcia and Ken Kesey visit with Tom Snyder and Monday was a look at the Jerry Garcia Band.
In terms of Garcia’s friends and acquaintances, Blair Jackson (who wrote a biography of the guitarist), recently penned a feature on Wavy Gravy, “Still Wavy After All These Years,” which is now up on the Relix site.
