Jerry Garcia Interview 1978

There is a new Grateful Dead archive online from the University of California Santa Cruz. It’s a large collection of over 45,000 “digital artifacts”. My father was a fan of the Dead and whenever I hear Fire on the Mountain or Casey Jones it takes me back. Be sure to check out the collection: click here. Here is an interview from 1978. Jerry and the band were arrested…
