Linda Kelly experienced her first Sex Pistols concert when she was fifteen and has been a great lover of music ever since. She has been a writer/editor for the likes of Spin Magazine, Mix Magazine, Quokka Sports, and Lucasfilm. She is now the managing editor at Astrology.com/NBC Universal. She resides in San Francisco, California.From Library Journal:
Former Spin magazine writer Kelly assembled anecdotes from over 30 Grateful Dead followers ranging from the famous (LSD guru Timothy Leary) to Grateful Dead associates (sometime lyricist John Perry Barlow) to "typical" fans. Their stories do little to explain the band's cultlike mystique and, disturbingly, often seem as concerned with past acid trips as they are with the group's music. A few stories are gems, but most inadvertently perpetuate the stereotype of Deadheads as superficial and sleazy. Photographs of the band and Deadheads in action are as bland as the text. If the recent death of head Dead Jerry Garcia is generating demand, try instead the reissued Grateful Dead: The Official Book of the Deadheads (LJ 8/83).?Lloyd Jansen, Stockton-San Joaquin Cty.
