As a manager for the Grateful Dead, Rock Scully was with the band from its early days in San Francisco to the years it spent touring the globe as one of the most enduring legends in music history. In Living with the Dead , Scully gives a complete account of his outrageous experiences with the band, during years that saw the Grateful Dead transform from a folksy revivalist band to psychedelic explorers of outer space. In addition to close-up portraits of band members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Pigpen, Phil Lesh, Micky Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, Scully brings into the story many of the people the Dead encountered in their journeys across America's musical landscape, including Ken Kesey, Janis Joplin, Etta James, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and the Jefferson Airplane. Scully tells the story of the band with genuine feeling; the tour disasters, acid trips, and burnouts, but most importantly the exaltation of delivering fantastic music.

About the Author:

Rock Scully worked for the Grateful Dead for twenty years and lives in Marino del Rey, California. David Dalton, co-author of Faithfull: An Autobiography and Rock 100 (both published by Cooper Square Press), lives in Delhi, New York.

From Library Journal:

Scully's 20-year tenure as Grateful Dead manager ended on a sour note, and he is barely mentioned in other books on the band. Nonetheless, in this first in-depth biography of the group, he displays a vivid, unflinching eye for detail, which is surprising considering the prodigious amounts of drugs he (and they) ingested. Highlights include colorful descriptions of Ken Kesey's acid tests (for which the Dead were the house band) and life in the Haight-Ashbury scene of the late 1960s. The reverential depiction of the late Jerry Garcia dominates sketches of the other band members, but Scully's insider status gives readers a rare view into the Grateful Dead inner circle. Recommended for popular music collections. Not as essential but no less interesting is editor Ganz's (Playing in the Band, LJ 7/85) compilation of some of the heartfelt and eloquent Internet postings that started appearing within minutes of the announcement of Garcia's death on August 9, 1995. Lovingly assembled, this book is far more effective than Linda Kelly's recently published Deadheads (LJ 11/1/95) at helping the uninitiated understand the otherworldly bond between the Dead and their fans. Recommended for larger collections.?Lloyd Jansen, Stockton-San Joaquin Cty. P.L., Cal.
