Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A longtime journalist whose area of expertise includes the Grateful Dead takes readers on a psychedelic journey through the life of Jerry Garcia, one of the most fascinating figures ever to grace the American pop culture scene.


Review:

"Inexorable fan memorabilia and page after page of concert appearances and recording sessions are interspersed with quotations from songs that are sometimes suggestive and moving, even without the music....For those who need to retrace the band's route from gig to gig, this is the book."

Herbert Gold, Los Angeles Times, 8/15/1999

Review:

"Don't be fooled by the title. For the most part, Jerry Garcia is somewhat of a cipher passing through what is really a fascinating and comprehensive biography of a rock band, not a man. The main focus throughout GARCIA is on the Grateful Dead, which to Blair Jackson's credit becomes a vital entity that, unfortunately, overshadows the man synonymous with it."

Charles Salzberg, New York Times, 9/19/1999
