The Grateful Dead
Where do we begin with the Grateful Dead? A band that embodies tie-dyed counterculture. Multiple genres of music overlaid with seemingly endless improv guitar solos. A band whose fans range from your old roommate who started out dealing weed and eventually moved up to mushrooms to NBA coach Phil Jackson to the ice cream moguls behind Ben and Jerry's, whatever their names are. That's a band with reach. Where to begin?
Well, how about you begin with Cracked's definitive, multi-part history of The Grateful Dead? Man, now that we say it out loud, it seems like a pretty obvious place to begin.
