Living with the Dead Summary

Living with the Dead: Twenty Years on the Bus with Garcia and the Grateful Dead by Rock Scully

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.

Living with the Dead Reviews

Funny, infuriating, and deeply poignant. * The Daily Telegraph *
The first in depth biography of the group displays a vivid, unflinching eye for detail...a rare view into the Grateful Dead inner circle. * Library Journal *
Coming from the inner sanctum and not from without, Scully-road manager, confidant, Garcia-keeper, and prankster-charges through his substance abused memory banks resulting in a real time (as opposed to acid time) history.... Morphing plaid iguanas to Altamont, through the later beating-a-dead-horse-tours, team paranoia, his dishonorable discharge from the ranks, and Jerry's passing, Living With The Dead is 369 pages of rowdy fun, challenge, and change. * Rhythmandnews.Com *
