Avid Dead fan and chronicler Sandy Troy probes Jerry Garcia’s personal and professional life through childhood and adolescence, Summer of Love acid tests, drug busts, three marriages, a brush with death, and his comeback. Troy also traces the Dead’s highs and lows and Garcia’s musical relationships with songwriter Robert Hunter and other musicians in the Grateful Dead.

IMAGINE BEING able to skip through time and witness historv first-hand. On my own list of happening temporal destinations would be McGoo’s Pizza Parlour in Menlo Park, California, one particular Thursday night in mid-February 1964. The Warlocks, soon to become the Grateful Dead, are about to begin their second set of the evening having just wolfed a double dose of Owsley Stanley’s latest Blue Phantom LSD. I would slip in unnoticed, order a large pepperoni, slurp on a Coke, sink back into the cherry vinyl and quietly await the dawning of the Psychedelic Age.  Cliff Jones, MOJO, March 1995
