As previously reported, an arrest warrant was issued earlier this week for former Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. Allegations of assault against Hart from a concert goer at a recent performance led to the warrant, but the musician denies any and all involvement in a new statement.
This Grateful Dead CD boxed set of the complete Fillmore West 1969 concerts sold for over a thousand bucks during a recent eBay auction. The operative word here is “complete” as these four concert discs, released in November of 2005 are not to be confused with the three-CD version that features the concert highlights only. This version is far more desirable to the purist and its limited availability took the bidding up to $1250.00.
In celebration of what would have been Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday on Aug. 1, his former guitarist in the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir, has organized a tribute concert for tonight (Aug. 3). The show will take place at Weir's TRI Studios in San Rafael, Calif., and will be webcast at their website beginning at 9:30PM Eastern.
The Grateful Dead may be no more, but their music will live on forever in a series of archival releases that seem to have no end in sight. The Dead have announced the upcoming release of 'Spring 1990,' a massive 18-disc box set that spotlights six performances from the group's 25th Anniversary tour, which many fans have dubbed their "last great tour."
Since the Grateful Dead's tenure wound down, bassist Phil Lesh and guitarist Bob Weir have kept their musical partnership going with the band Further. As touring was always the big draw for Grateful Dead, the same can be said for Further, and Lesh takes that assessment a step further.
Nearly 40 years after the Grateful Dead used it to get out of their contract with Warner Bros. -- and flout the traditions of the "greatest hits" record while they were at it -- the live album 'History of the Grateful Dead Vol. 1 (Bear's Choice)' is getting the vinyl reissue treatment.
