A collection of interviews—some vintage, some recent, and some brand-new—Conversations with the Dead is the first (and only) book in which the Grateful Dead speak in their own words about their music and their lives. David Gans, a self-professed Deadhead and host of "The Grateful Dead Hour," asked Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and the rest of the band the questions their fans would have asked if given the chance. And Gans reaches far beyond the musicians, talking with such often-overlooked key players as the recording engineer, sound man, and road crew—those who have had the coveted opportunity to witness the Dead's decades of music-making. This updated and expanded edition includes a rare, never-before-published interview with Seastones composer Ned Lagin and a new introduction by the author. With a readable combination of intensity, inquisitiveness, and candor, Gans has created an unprecedented portrait of a band who, after more than thirty years of music-making, has earned a unique place in American culture.

About the Author:

David Gans is a musician, author of Playing in the Band, and host of the nationally syndicated radio show "The Grateful Dead Hour." He has also produced three albums, including the Grateful Dead's gold-record-winning boxed set, So Many Roads (1965–1995). He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

From Library Journal:

This volume is considered the definitive interview book with the band the Grateful Dead. Gans is a noted expert on the Dead, with several books to his credit, and was the producer of a few of their albums. The volume essentially is a collection of interviews with members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Dan Healy, Mickey Hart, and Jerry Garcia, who, alas, is no longer grateful, just dead. The interviews range from 1977 to 1991, and the text is buttressed with numerous photos. This edition also includes a new introduction. The band remains immensely popular, making this a solid purchase.
