Written by an insider. Parish traveled with the Grateful Dead for more than 30 years. He was best man at Jerry Garcia’s wedding and the last to see Garcia alive. It is the story of laughter and wild parties as well as heartbreak and horrible tragedies. In his Foreword, founding member Bob Weir wrote “The Grateful Dead was all about improvisation”. Weir said Parish spoke “that language with a flourish”. This book is a record of music history written by one who experienced it firsthand.
